Clark Gregg Speculates About Coulson's New Hand

When the Comic-Con poster for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 was revealed, fans got their first look at Agent Phil Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) new hand, and it looks like a prop from another popular Disney franchise.

From the San Diego Convention Center, ComicBook.com asked Clark Gregg about his black-gloved new hand. Gregg claimed ignorance of any certain knowledge, saying he was looking for clues in the poster as much as anyone else was, but he did have some ideas.

“That may be a temporary hand,” Gregg speculates. “That may be a placeholder hand. Or it may have some powers. I’ve got a feeling we’re going to be seeing new models. That’s my hope.”

In the Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Season 2 finale, Coulson heroically caught a falling Terrigen Crystal. The crystal began to calcify Coulson body, so Mack (Henry Simmons) – in a moment of decisive action – used an axe to amputate Coulson’s hand and stop the spread of the crystal’s effects.

Later, when asked by May (Ming-Na Wen) about the injury, Coulson said he was considering his options. It looks like he may have found one he likes.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 will premiere Sept. 29 on ABC.
