In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 episode 15, Spacetime, there's a scene in which a bunch of agents are essentially rehearsing a big fight. It features Agent May very obviously pulling her punches and kicks so as not to injure her coworkers, and agents pointing bright plastic prop guns at each other and saying "BANG!", with Daisy "directing."
When I saw that, I couldn't help but wonder if the show was going a little bit meta. Has anyone involved with the show talked about this scene? Is this what a real fight scene on set looks like, before the special effects guys do their magic?
