Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

And they won't likely use any of the actual supers like Spider-Woman (any version) because (a) they'll want to reserve the possibility of developing those on the *big* screen and (b) it'd run contrary to Joss' theme for the TV show, which is about normal humans interacting with a superhero universe.

Still, I'd like to see some "name" agents show up, even if it's just one-episode cameos. It's surprising that Sitwell (Max Hernandez) from the movies wasn't offered a role.
while I agree with Dum Dum and Gabe, both Izzy and Dino won't be a problem at all. They weren't mentioned in CA:TFA and were not part of the MCU version of the Howling Commandos. A single line of backstory rewrite is enough to incorporate them into the MCU anytime
