Hmm. I doubt Nick Fury, Hawkeye, or Black Widow would be regulars in this, and Cobie Smulders has another series gig, doesn't she? So this would probably have to focus on new characters. Who've they got? Gabe Jones? Clay Quartermain? Hey, weren't they developing a Mockingbird series a while ago? They could fold that into this, have Bobbi be one of the leads, or the lead.

So this is going to be pretty much The Unit in the MCU? ;)

They could use Jimmy Woo who I believe was not in the film. They could also use Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. There are a ton of possibilities.

So I'm guessing that there will be apperances from superpowered guest characters every once in a while? :confused:

Isn't How I Met Your Mother ending after this season? Unless Cobie wants to focus on features, they can and should swoop on her.

Jasper Sitwell is in Thor, "The Consultant", The Avengers and the upcoming "Item 47".

The Consultant was the first Marvel One-Shot. It was basically two brief conversations between Coulson and Sitwell framed around clips from The Incredible Hulk. The World Security Council wanted SHIELD to recruit Blonsky into the Avengers Initiative, and Fury assigned Coulson to find a way to stop it from happening. He and Sitwell came up with the idea of sending Tony Stark (the consultant) to meet with Thunderbolt Ross and piss him off so that he'd refuse to hand Blonsky over to SHIELD.

^Thus leading into the post-credits scene from Incredible Hulk and fixing the continuity puzzler of why Stark was the one meeting with Ross.

I kinda doubt it unless they're non-movie characters, IMO. I do expect to hear some name dropping of various Avengers doing stuff offscreen now and again, though.
