UPDATE: More images from the premiere episode have been released and added to the gallery below
The other day we learned that in preparation for the upcoming limit-series event, Agent Carter, Hayley Atwell will be reprising her famed Captain America role for the season two premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Since the period-drama is meant to show the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D., it makes sense that the famed agent’s history would somehow tie into Coulson’s present as he tries to rebuild the spy-organization from the ground up. Now, with only weeks to go before the premiere, TV Guide has unveiled the first look of Atwell in the season premiere, and she’s not alone:

Yup, your eyes do not deceive you, those are indeed some Howling Commando members (Jim Morita and Dum Dum Dugan to be exact) fighting alongside Carter in the shot. It’s currently unknown if the duo (along with the rest of the commandos) will be appearing in the new miniseries, but we have a feeling this won’t be the last time we’ll be seeing them (you don’t hire a man like Neal McDonough for just a single guest spot). Either way, it’s exciting to know they’ll be popping up in the S.H.I.E.L.D. premiere as well.
So far, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter are shaping up to be something really special for audiences this fall. As we wait patiently for things like Daredevil, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, these series will be a hefty dose of Marvel Cinematic Universe to tide us over until mid-2015.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres September 23 at 9/8c on ABC.
