    Really looking forward to this show. The Captain America storyline is my favorite of the Avengers/Shield movie/tv storylines (I haven’t read the comics, unfortunately), so I’m excited to see how they do this. I also liked Carter, too.

  2. Kate Sullivan says:

    This is good especially since she was snarking about him in AoS premiere. I still hope they build this into AoS. Like have Skye or May visit her in her old folks home for advice as to how to deal with all of this stuff and she is still a little trapped in the past as she was in Winter Solider and so she can talk about the time covered.

  3. Sarah says:

    Is that an 8 ep mini series and nothing more? Or is there the possibility of a second season?

  4. KCC says:

    Good news!
    I wonder if Derek Luke or Neal McDonough would reprise their roles as well.

    • Eric says:

      I would love to see Neal, who recently appeared in the AoS season premiere, come back for this series. Dum Dum Dugan is a cool character overall, but that hat and moustache combo — that is what dreams are made of.

  5. Fido says:

    Hope the series has the same feel, action wise, as the short.

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Happy he’s reprising his role as Howard Stark. He was great on Captain America movie. So excited to see the show next year!

  7. Lizo says:

    Awesome!!! And I really hope we get more than 8 episodes….with a second season

  8. meni says:

    I love Dominic and hope Neal reprises his role too
    Hayley is way too awesome anyway she got her on TV show on the basis of a 10 mind short that’s cool!!
