The ABC drama series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is returning for Season 2 on September 23rd with Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) as the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and rebuilding the organization torn apart by Hydra won’t be easy. In the meantime, you can either catch up or relive the action-packed twists and turns of the first season’s 22 episodes, and all of the behind-the-scenes features and deleted scenes, on Blu-ray/DVD.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen talked about what they were most proud of with the first season, stand-out fight scenes, whether they always knew the twist with Agent Ward (Brett Dalton), viewing Season 2 as a sequel where they can just pick up where they left off, that the questions asked last season will be answered soon, the journey of the new wild card Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., what Lucy Lawless is bringing to the show, Easter eggs, funny behind-the-scenes moments, deciding which comic book characters to introduce, the dog controversy, and the new later time slot. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
