Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Star Says Series Should Be Credited for Marvel Studios’ TV Success: ‘We Were the First’

When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered on ABC in 2013, the series received a considerable amount of hype, in large part, because of its tangible connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Clark Gregg was taking his fan-favorite character, Agent Phil Coulson, out of the films and was allowed to headline his own series that would potentially expand on his mythology. It was also marketed as the first series to be set in the MCU, even acknowledging the continuity of the films and other TV series. However, since the conclusion of the show, Marvel has distanced itself a bit from the series, and one of its stars, Ming-Na Wen, feels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. deserves way more recognition from Marvel than it receives.
