  • 06:10 - Marvel Cinematic Universe TV Shows - Clark Gregg & Jeph Loeb Forbes Interview
    Thanks to Alex Forrest for the heads up.

    Forbes: Clark, it’s been six months since the finale, but we haven’t yet seen Coulson really deal with the fact that he’s got a robot hand now…

    Jeph Loeb: We think it’s a robot.

    The first thing I had planned to ask was: what’s the possibility of Marvel television ever getting into sitcoms? Then, of course, we get the announcement a few weeks ago that Damage Control is in development. How far is the plan here with going into sitcoms? Could we see a Squirrel Girl Netflix series in a few years? Where does it end?

    Loeb: Look, we’ve been very lucky in that the Marvel universe has different genres, different flavors, different names. We have over 9,000 characters. There are no limits to the genres that we want to go into. It’s just as we do everything, as we did in the motion picture department, as we did in animation, as we’re doing in live television, it’s just picking the right thing and mostly finding the right storytellers. In the case of bringing [Ben Karlin] in to do Damage Control, this was a property that he sparked to and spoke to. And that’s really what’s more important than anything else. There’s so much stuff on television right now that we want to be careful that everything we do feels special, feels as strong as S.H.I.E.L.D.

    Gregg: I’ve got to say, as a fan, I was so psyched to read this, because it’s one of Marvel’s many superpowers. They do the funniest stuff within this genre. So many of these different shows kind of have different needles on the scale of dark to light, from the Netflix stuff to our show, and I assume Jessica Jones. I think just the idea that you’ll have one that kinda leans a little bit more in that direction is something the fans are going to go crazy for. I know I’m excited about it.

    Thanks to mac for the heads up.
    Our website’s mission is to promote women’s contributions to sci-fi and fantasy, and I have to say that The Originals has done a pretty great job of showcasing a lot of powerful yet very different women from many racial backgrounds. Do you know if this has been a conscious goal of the series?

    Well, that’s Julie Plec. I think the same could be said of any of her shows. There are always frequent and complex female characters. And what’s lovely about The Originals is that we’re most triumphantly racially diverse. It should be. It’s set in New Orleans where it’s absolutely as diverse as it gets, and we should be seeing many cultures represented. What’s cool, in terms of your question on whether it’s a conscious choice, is that, absolutely, I think it’s a choice. Ostensibly, we’re a show aimed at women in a lot of ways, even though, as the show has grown and diversified, I’ve noticed a growing male audience that is really enjoying the show. However, particularly in our origin when we split from the mothership of The Vampire Diaries, a show with an enormous demographic of women followers, it’s been in our best interest to have strong, intelligent, sassy, cool, intellectually dexterous women at the center of these dramas. It has not only behooved us to have women wielding great intellects, but we’re also sensitive to a multiplicity of female wisdom, strength, humor and contemporary fun set amid this world of magic realism. And I think they’ve done it masterfully. Look at the number of writers we have, too. I just finished working with the writer of the last episode who’s a woman, Diane Ademu-John. Michelle Paradise wrote the episode before that. Julie wrote the one before that. It’s written by women. Are we designing this show with lots of women in mind deliberately? The short answer is absolutely.

When it turns out that he was right and operating a food truck comes with a whole lot of problems and responsibilities, Gabi doesn’t want him to know how much trouble they’re in. Once the truth comes out, will Josh be able to put Gabi’s happiness before his own feelings, or will he drive away the two people that matter most? Elliott & Alan (Bryan Safi) must get a blessing from Rabbi Shapiro (Joel Books) before they exchange vows, but he’s not very impressed by what he sees.
