The one thing that can be said about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is that it ties in most closely to the Captain America films. The first season really turned around when Cap 2 was released and the entire shape of the Marvel Universe changed. It makes sense, seeing as Captain America is indeed the first “Avenger”, and the basis for the formation of the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.
Now, it seems that the two franchises will be even more closely linked, as the Season 2 Premiere, set for later this month, will feature none other than Peggy Carter and at least two of the Howling Commandos, last seen in the original Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011. Initially it was speculated that we might see Carter in an elderly role much like in this past summers blockbuster Captain America The Winter Soldier, but in this picture released through TVGuide.com today, it is clear we will be seeing Carter back in her World War II days, fighting alongside the Commandos.
This would also make sense, seeing as Marvel is also prepping fans for their upcoming Agent Peggy Carter series, an 8 episode run that will play during S.H.I.E.L.D.s winter break, and tell the story of how she founded the covert operations division along with Howard Stark.
