In most cases, professionals aren't keen on having their less professional moments publicised. Structural engineers don't pull funny faces and wiggle their rumps when the bridge they designed collapses. Dentists don't play air guitar when they accidentally drill the wrong tooth. Actors, however, will happily show off their goof-ups to the general public.
Which is just what the people behind Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. have by releasing this season one blooper reel. See all the regulars and one or two guest stars crack up, garble lines, break into a dance routine, and in one memorable case, be out-acted by a pedal bin, below:

Season one of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is all wrapped up for the year, but the super spies have one last treat for their faithful viewers. While the show definitely had some growing pains (chronicled by our own Evan Valentine's weekly recaps) and plenty of unintentionally hilarious moments, this new blooper reel is an absolute delight. Watch Clark Gregg get attacked by a rogue fly, Ming-Na Wen get tongue-tied, and Chloe Bennet welcome you to Chloe's Corner. Co-stars Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge get their own share of the giggles in this behind-the-scenes look. Season one of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will debut on Blu-ray/DVD on September 9th. Hit the jump to watch the season one blooper reel.

With Comic-Con now out of the way, Marvel's Agents of Shield can turn its attention to the next event on their calendar: the Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD release on September 9. What better way to start the countdown than with a collection of Agents of Shield bloopers.
As the featured agent in Shield, Clark Gregg takes center stage in most of the blooper reel, seamlessly transitioning from serious flubbed lines to all-out laughter without an ounce of effort. All the other Shield agents played by Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Ian de Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and even Cobie Smulders get in on the laughs, of which I'm sure there were countless more when cameras weren't rolling.
Previously shown at their Ballroom 20 panel at San Diego Comic-Con, ABC has now brought the official gag reel for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Season 1 online. Check it out in the player below!
The .Marvel.s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. cast includes Clark Gregg as fan favorite Phil Coulson, along with Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons. »
The line between the comics and movie universes continues to blur as Marvel have announced today a new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series from Mark Waid and a team of revolving artists including Carlos Pacheco, Alan Davis, and Chris Sprouse. It will introduce characters from the TV show to the Marvel Universe, and Agent Coulson is set to have a lead role. "He is the coolest Marvel Comics fan ever. E-v-e-r," Waid said of Clark Gregg, the actor who currently plays the character on TV. "He’s amazing at his job, he’s badass, he’s funny—and he loves the history of the Marvel Universe as much as I do." The format of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won't be too different to the recent Moon Knight series, with a run off one-off stories. Each will seemingly feature an appearance from a well-known Marvel superhero though. "Done-in-one stories are more challenging, »
Marvel kicked off its "Avengers: Age of Ultron" Comic Con presentation with one bit of sad news - Joss Whedon couldn't make it as he was laid up in London following knee surgery and isn't allowed to fly.
Almost the entire main cast was there though - Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobey Smulders, Clark Gregg, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and James Spader with new mother Scarlett Johansson having to sit this out.
Downey made the crowd swoon, coming into the hall throwing roses and dancing to a Jackson 5 number. Along the way he cracked jokes about how with each casting addition he becomes a little less significant.
Hemsworth got a joke in when asked what he'd like to see Thor do. He responded "Turn him into a woman" and joked that doing so would probably earn him an Oscar. »

San Diego — If anyone had any fear the Avengers might not reassemble at Comic-Con this year, you can breathe easy. The whole gang is here. The cast are expected to grace the stage of the famed Hall H during Marvel's panel later this evening, but they made an unexpected appearance on the convention floor for a photo opp with fans. Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) didn't make the shot, but Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Paul Bettany (Vision) did. Plus, they were joined by former S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues Clark Gregg (Agent Coulsen) and Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill). Maybe this means Coulsen might return to the big screen? Marvel Studios also released a new image from "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" featuring Downey and Ruffalo. It's not mind-blowing, but, hey, it's Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. »

During the Marvel Television panel at Comic-Con yesterday a teaser trailer was shown for their second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It features Patton Oswalt, who will be coming back as Agent Koenig. The teaser hints at a new team member — Barbara Morse, aka Mockingbird.
A member of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Avengers in the comics, Mockingbird was first created by Gerry Conway and Barry Smith and introduced in Astonishing Tales #6 in 1971. Though she doesn't have any super powers, she was injected with an experimental serum that gave her enhanced strength and speed. The character also became romantically involved with Hawkeye in the source material.
The cast of the show includes Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons »

Shortly after the Marvel TV panel at Comic-Con on Friday, I was able to participate in a roundtable interview with cast members Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain de Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeph Loeb, and Jeffrey Bell. If you watch Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you know there was a huge revelation about Brett Dalton’s character, Grant Ward. Many had wondered if Dalton would be returning for season two, but with his appearance at Comic-Con and having participated in interviews for the show, it’s safe to assume that he will be back. Also, with the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. has all but been completely obliterated. During the roundtable interviews, the actors and producers talked about how The Winter Soldier will affect the show going forward, when the rest of the Avengers will discover that Agent Coulson is still alive, »

Following the Season 2 teaser released earlier today for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a new gag reel has surfaced. This three and a half minute video will be included on the Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD sets that will debut on September 9. Watch as Skye (Chloe Bennet), May (Ming-Na Wen) and Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) imitate Charlie's Angels, while Coulson (Clark Gregg) drops an F-bomb or two in some lighter moments on the set.
In the wake of The Battle of New York, the world has changed forever. An extraordinary landscape of wonders has been revealed!

There will be some new faces on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this fall!
With the government coming after S.H.I.E.L.D., Director Coulson (Clark Gregg) will be on the hunt for anyone who can help the team rebuild. Among the newcomers he'll turn to is Lance Hunter (Nick Blood), who in the comics was the director of S.T.R.I.K.E. — and who we first teased in Mega Buzz. "He's not a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, he's a mercenary," executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen announced during the Marvel TV Comic-Con panel on Friday.
Meanwhile, the producers also confirmed that...

Is S.H.I.E.L.D. destined to meet S.T.R.I.K.E.?
It was announced on Friday at the San Diego Comic-Con panel for ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that the role of Lance Hunter has been cast for Season 2, to be played by British actor Nick Blood.

It's Marvel TV time at Comic-Con, with an hour-long panel that promises to feature Jeph Loeb plus still-unnamed castmembers from both "Marvel's Agents of Shield" and "Marvel's Agent Carter." The question is, will Marvel stop with just the two ABC dramas, or will they start trying to build excitement for the four upcoming Netflix series by, say, bringing in "Daredevil" stars Charlie Cox and Deborah Ann Woll for surprise appearances? (Woll has a long and impressive history of Comic-Con cosplay, including stints as Hit Girl and Axe Cop, so I wouldn't be shocked in the least if she came dressed as Elektra — or Daredevil, for that matter.) And will Loeb be as bombastic as in his usual interviews, or will he acknowledge how rough so much of "Agents of Shield" season 1 was before "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finally gave the show direction? I'll be live-blogging all the action, updating »

It's been another busy day at Comic-Con, but one of the panels we're really excited about is almost ready to begin! The Marvel TV panel is expected to bring us plenty of gossip about not just Agents of Shield, but also Agent Carter (could we be getting some casting for that one?) We're really looking forward to us, so join us as the panel begins at 3pm Pt / 6pm Et / 11pm UK...
16:05What a way to end the panel, eh? Thanks for joining us and stick around on DS for more Comic-Con action!

An almost complete waste of a talented cast, and all to, apparently, convince teenaged girls that sex isn’t worth the hassle. Say what? I’m “biast” (pro): love Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning; we need to see this premise more
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
Very boring girls, more like. I really wanted to like this tale of two best friends, Lilly (Dakota Fanning: Night Moves) and Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen: Godzilla), in New York City about to go off to different colleges and fretting about the fact that they’re both still virgins. I mean, that’s not really a big deal, even if they’ve convinced themselves that they’re the last sexless dorks on the planet, but okay: guy characters get these sorts of movies all the time. And this is as tedious as most of the guy versions. »

The Boyfriend Experience: Foner’s Directorial Debut a Derivative Shard
Screenwriter Naomi Foner makes her directorial debut with Very Good Girls, though her preceding reputation makes this sedimentary, uninspired film even more surprising. Mother of actors Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Foner penned several of ex-husband Stephen Gyllenhaal’s more notable titles, such as Losing Isaiah (1995) and A Dangerous Woman (1993). Considering the authoritative, complicated, and resilient female characters portrayed famously by the likes of Jessica Lange, Halle Berry, and Debra Winger, this trifling and tedious story of a late adolescent friendship tested by mutual attraction to the same boy seems born from the pen of a novice writing about her only familiar focal point,
In New York City during their last summer before going away to college, best friends Lilly (Dakota Fanning) and Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen) vow to lose their virginity. Gerri has her eyes set on David (Boyd Holbrook), who »

Very Good Girls is a coming-of-age story starring two of the most talented young actresses out there today, so why is it so very hard to like? Almost nothing works in this limp excuse for a drama, from the contrived story to the clichéd characters to the awkward costume design. Even Elizabeth Olsen, horribly miscast, and Dakota Fanning, so vacant she appears translucent, can’t keep such a leaky vessel afloat.
Among Very Good Girls‘ many sins, perhaps the most glaring is that it feels like a movie written for teenagers by an adult who knows nothing about them. In the very first scene, high school seniors and lifelong friends Lilly (Fanning) and Gerri (Olsen) strip down at a public beach in broad daylight and run naked into the waves. I don’t know why. I don’t think writer-director Naomi Foner knows why. The film is filled with bizarre decisions like that, »

As rollicking a final stretch as Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivered at the close of Season 1, the fact is the ABC series had to spend much of its freshman run “treading water,” until Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit the big screen and — movie spoiler alert – toppled the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization in every sense of the word.
