Clark Gregg, who starred as our favorite SHIELD agent, Phil Coulson, supports Agents of SHIELD being canon in the MCU. Although, I’m not so sure. The series went deep into their seven seasons and it feels like the pieces don’t fit in the MCU. Also, the Darkhold from Agents of SHIELD and WandaVision look very different. I recently finished all seven seasons and I just don’t think that it works. Marvel would have to work some magic. I’m sure there are many fans of the series would disagree with me, but that’s just where I stand. Gregg stands for Agents of SHIELD being canon. If that does happen, I hope Marvel can make it work. It was great to have Phil Coulson back in What If…? and I wouldn’t object to seeing more of him.
Agents of SHIELD a part of the MCU: could it work?
Comicbook.com shared some words Clark Gregg said on the subject:
I’ve seen places where people felt like SHIELD or something had been de-canonized by stuff that happened in WandaVision in ways I couldn’t even quite follow, and I’m pretty adept at this stuff.
[Feige] is so classy to the fans, I just think that’s why Marvel has done something so special, is [ because] they’re number-one priority is taking care of fans […] I read this comment the other day where someone said that about, ‘Did this diminish Agents of SHIELD?’ And [Feige] said, ‘Ya know, I think you’re really underestimating how powerful and passionate the fans of that show and the Netflix shows are and were,’ and I would never underestimate them or the possibility those characters, cause I really want to see (Daredevil actor) Charlie Cox, I really want to see people who love those shows, I want to see it all get crossed over as much as it could, cause I think that’s what the Marvel fans want.

Charlie Cox did an amazing job as Daredevil and Vincent D’Onofrio was brilliant as Kingpin so I do agree with him there. Gregg continued:
It’s really nice. Ya know, I had the greatest run and the greatest time doing each of the movies. I loved doing all of it. And I really had a blast. I don’t yearn for anything… It’s really flattering to me that people do seem to make a buzz about, ‘When’s he going to show up?’ Ya know, I just enjoy watching what [Marvel Studios President] Kevin [Feige] and everybody has been doing. And Kevin’s been really cool, as he always is and always has been to me…
If Marvel does decide to make the series canon, maybe the Darkhold from Agents of SHIELD could be a magical copy of the Darkhold from WandaVision. I’m sure some magical whoever-the-hell cares could have made a copy. It could work, but it would need to be more than just that.
