FIRST LOOK: Agent Carter and two of the Howling Commandos in Agents of SHIELD Season 2

September 10th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Remember the story a few days back that Hayley Atwell would be in Agents of SHIELD Season 2 premiere as Agent Peggy Carter (here)? And we weren’t sure if she’d be old ala The Winter Soldier or young ala The First Avenger? Well, now we know…

TVGuide has published the above picture and put to bed any questions we had about which period of the story we’d see 1940s Peggy in but what we didn’t expect was to see was Howling Commandos Kenneth Choi and Neal McDonough, playing their Captain America characters Jim Morita and Dum Dum Dugan. How Cool is that?!

“Coulson is a big student of history and wants to return to those old ideals of Agent Carter’s time,” says executive producer Jed Whedon. “He’s, like, ‘Let’s be the S.H.I.E.L.D. we were meant to be!’ He wants to do the job right this time.”

Atwell will of course be appearing in the Agent Carter TV series early next year and we’d say this is a tasty bit of foreshadowing that we can expect to see the Commandos there too. Excited? We are now!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
