Clark Gregg confirms Marvel cameos
Clark Gregg will reprise his role as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson in Iron Man 2 and Thor.

According to the actor, the character will make a cameo appearance in both Marvel Comics adaptations. The government agent's presence confirms that S.H.I.E.L.D. will feature in the films as a common thread to tie them to 2012's Avengers.

In an interview with MTV, Gregg spoke about his character's association with Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson on screen. "There are two people I want to work for: Barack Obama and Nick Fury," he said.

It has been noted that the inclusion of S.H.I.E.L.D. in Thor suggests that the movie will be grounded in the relatively realistic world of the Iron Man movies.

Gregg previously portrayed S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson in the original Iron Man in 2008.

Iron Man 2 is released on April 30. Thor arrives in theatres in May next year.
