Starting with the home release of Thor in 2011, Marvel began releasing short films called One-Shots, which allowed them to feature lesser-known characters in low budget stories. The One-Shot series kicked off with The Consultant, featuring Clark Gregg as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson. This was followed by A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer (also a Coulson adventure), Item 47, Agent Carter and All Hail the King. However, since Thor: The Dark World, Marvel hasn’t released any more One-Shots on their DVDs and Blu-rays, but that could change in the future.

Recently, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that it’s possible Marvel may eventually start making One-Shots again to expand the MCU beyond movies and television. For many fans, this would be a welcome return. This franchise certainly isn’t lacking for secondary/supporting characters to spotlight, and while not nearly as much money is spent on these One-Shots, there are enough interesting stories that wouldn’t be crucial viewing for average moviegoers, but fun tales for the hardcore fans to partake in. Check out the characters we think would benefit from their own One-Shot, both established and yet to be introduced in the MCU.

Following behind Bucky Barnes and Peggy Carter, Dum Dum Dugan was Captain America’s most notable ally out in the field during World War II, leading the Howling Commandos into battle against HYDRA and the United States’ other enemies. Since Captain America: The First Avenger, Dugan has shown up in the Agent Carter One-Shot, an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. flashback and the Agent Carter TV series, but those aren’t enough! Let’s see him lead the Howling Commandos (be it the original gang or the one seen on Agent Carter) on another adventure in the post-World War II era. Unlike Dugan in the comics, the MCU’s version isn’t around in the present day, so the only way we’ll get to keep seeing him is if Marvel jumps back to him in the past. Maybe once Neal McDonough is finished playing Damien Darhk on Arrow, he can hightail it back to Marvel to don the mustache and bowler hat for his own One-Shot adventure.
