Clark Gregg, who plays Phil Coulson in the MCU says that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is still MCU canon despite WandaVision. The latter was the first Disney+ series of Marvel’s Phase 4. It solely focused on Wanda’s grief and past trauma. The Scarlet Witch went on to take an entire town hostage and created a fake Vision with a pair of twins. Moreover, Agatha Harkness introduced the Darkhold – a book of evil spells written by the Elder God, Chthon. It’s because of the Darkhold that some of the viewers believe that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not MCU canon anymore. But Clark Gregg says otherwise.

While speaking on the Marvel Movie Minute podcast, Gregg revealed that he reached out to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. He said:
“I’ve seen places where people felt like S.H.I.E.L.D. 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.”
So, Clark Gregg went on to ask Kevin Feige if WandaVision did anything to “diminish” Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Surprisingly, Feige responded positively in favor of Gregg. Feige said:
“I would never underestimate them or the possibility [of] 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.”
