Clark Gregg never thought his character, S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson, would resonate the way it did with fans, but thanks to appearances in several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he’s become a franchise favorite. Ahead of his co-starring role in the latest chapter of the MCU, Captain Marvel, Gregg sat down with Rotten Tomatoes to talk about what makes Agent Coulson so relatable, how his role expanded over the years, what it was like to be a part of Captain Marvel, and what the new movie means to him as the father of a young woman.

Captain Marvel opened in theaters on March 8.
