Interview: Brett Dalton and Chloe Bennett Talk ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ (video)

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D had one of the best “Holy crap!” moments of the TV season this year. When the audience found out that Brett Dalton‘s Agent Ward was a member of Hydra, it turned the series – and Marvel Universe – on its nose. And that was a good thing.

Dalton and co-star Chloe Bennett were at Comic-Con to chat about the show and all things S.H.E.I.L.D. At one point, Dalton is asked when he found out his character was an Agent of Hydra. He told our group at the roundtable that he only found out two weeks before. Would he have wanted to know sooner? “No,” he said. “I’d second guess every line I was saying.”

More highlights:

  • What is more interesting for Dalton to play? The good guy or the bad guy?
  • Reading fan reviews
  • Is Bennett a true Marvel fan?
