At a recent press junket for his upcoming gangster show Mob City, Neal McDonaugh talked about another of his gun-toting characters, Dum Dum Dugan, and the chances of him returning for future Marvel movies. Dum Dum appeared in both Captain America: The First Avenger and the one-shot Agent Carter and by the sounds of it, he would jump at the chance to once again work under the Marvel banner:
So I'm praying that Dum Dum comes around somewhere soon because everyone loved Dum Dum and I love playing him. My kids love Dum Dum. I think if its got a Marvel banner... I love Marvel. I think what Kevin's [Feige] doing is just genius. To do one film at a time and have each of them be great...
I've been a big fan of McDonaugh's since seeing him in Band of Brothers and I'd be stoked to see him reprise his role as Dum Dum. In the same vein as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there's talk of Marvel green-lighting an Marvel's Agent Carter, which would give a platform for Dum Dum to return. But you know what I would like to see? A Howling Commandos TV show. Watching the elite special unit take down bad guys in World War II would be really kick-ass.
