The producers of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 'take great joy' in keeping secrets from the cast

The cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wouldn’t be able to spill any secrets about the upcoming third season even if they wanted to — they’re kept on a strict “need-to-know basis,” Elizabeth Henstridge told us in the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday.

Ming-Na Wen added that the writers and producers “take great joy” in keeping them in the dark, to which Iain De Caestecker joked: “They’ll just come up to you and be like, ‘Can you ride a unicorn? Okay, just wondering,’ and you don’t know why!” 

Of course, as an actor, the answer is always, “Yes,” though Clark Gregg advises a little one-upping: “I own a unicorn!” 

For more on why the next season of S.H.I.E.L.D. — which begins shooting later this month — is a “really big deal” for comic-book fans, check out EW’s full interview with the cast above and leave your hopes and dreams for next season below.
