    Talk about milking ... I mean seriously what's next, a show for one of the MCU extras about the everyday perils of being a milkman?

    Pretty cool.
    Looking forward to it and hopefully we get some Dum Dum Dugan and Howard Stark.

    I'm looking forward to this even more than Agents of SHIELD. The One Shot short was very entertaining, and I like where the story idea is headed with her and Stark creating the agency.

    I suppose Steve's legacy will loom large but the show should not be afraid to eventually have some romantic interests for her down the line.

    Considering The Winter Soldier revealed spoilers:
    she had a husband and children, this is an inevitable development.
    end of spoilers

    I am in. I expect we will get to see the very beginnings of Hydra's infiltration of SHIELD, and that they will play a sinister element in the show that goes unnoticed by most everyone except the viewers. I wonder if Arnim Zola will be in a recurring role?

    How is the story of a secret agent who founds SHIELD even remotely comparable?

    Stop trolling or you'll be reported.

    I didn't care for the first 2 episodes so haven't been watching the show, but i thought it wasn't very popular.
    When did that change? Because i assume a spin off isn't done for a show that isn't popular.

    Captain America the Winter Soldier's tie in ep really turned it around.
    "Drewbacca?"

    I'm sorry I was expecting shadayim

    I must have missed that.


    Tho it makes sense her and Steve really didn't get a chance to go out or date and people eventually move on no matter what.

    I like her being single for a while in the series tho.

    Besides Carter being hot, me thinks this show is gonna have a tough time holding my interest.

    That's what I am hoping for. I want to see Zola again. And the Howling Commandos. I would love to see more with them... I wonder if she married the Major?
    Blending into the shadows...

    Anything's possible I suppose. I hope posters will judge it by whether it's well done rather than give it the kind of pistol-whipping that Marvel's Agents of SHIELD got for not being the show they wanted written or for not including every trope they wanted to see.

    Personally, I think there's a lot of cool stuff that could be done with this, even before we talk about comics easter eggs. Set as it is in the late '40's, this is the era of Flemming's Bond (not the film imitations). I'll be interested to see how much of that the show runners draw from, as well as from derivative heirs like The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Danger Man, and Mission: Impossible (although, admittedly those came well after the time period that Agent Carter will be set in).

    It's interesting to me also to see this greenlit now. I have no doubt that Disney and Marvel Studios are banking on the buzz around the latest Captain America film and the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot to draw interest. However, with The Americans getting a second season, and the recent resurgence of the Russian Federation, I wonder if they're also banking on a certain amount of American nostalgia for the Cold War?
