Agent Carter: Peggy Carter and Gabe Jones

Will the Agent Carter television series showcase the Howling Commandos after their heroic duties in World War II? Specifically Gabriel Jones and his involvement in Peggy Carter's life?

Howling Commandos

It's established that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is quite different from the Marvel Comics timeline. We couldn't help but wonder about Gabriel Jones and Peggy Carter as the "Agent Carter" television series rolls out. Both Jones and Carter set a precedent as being involved in one of the first interracial relationships in comics at the time.  Will Disney and Marvel hint at this relationship in the television series or in a later film?

Set in the backdrop of post-World War II America, "Agent Carter" follows the further adventures of Carter and ally Howard Stark.  Carter works for the Strategic Scientific Reserve while also secretly helping Howard Stark in his own dire matters.  The show has yet to announce actor Derek Luke's appearance in the television series. Luke portrayed Gabe Jones, a member of the Howling Commandos in the "Captain America: First Avenger" movie.  As depicted in the "Captain America: Winter Soldier" movie, Carter does eventually get married and has two children. The children have probable Caucasian features and Carter's husband's identity remains a mystery and has yet to be revealed.

It's interesting to note the time frame of the series and how Jones would be portrayed. In the comics, Jones returns from WWII duties and settles as a jazz musician. He enlists for the Korean War and later joins S.H.I.E.L.D. It is at this point where he and Carter are romantically together. Whether or not Carter and Jones are ever depicted in this manner remains to be seen.
