First TV spot for Marvel’s Agent Carter
Marvel’s Agent Carter, or simply Agent Carter, is an upcoming American television series, based on the Marvel One-Shot short film of the same name. It features the Marvel Comics character Peggy Carter, with Hayley Atwell reprising the role. Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it will be produced by Marvel Television and air on the ABC network. The series was officially ordered on May 8, 2014, and will debut in January 2015 during the season two mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
In 1946, Peggy Carter must balance the routine office work she does for the Strategic Scientific Reserve while secretly assistingHoward Stark, who finds himself framed for supplying deadly weapons to the top bidder. Carter is assisted by Stark’s butler, Edwin Jarvis, to find those responsible and dispose of the weapons
At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, Marvel revealed that Louis D’Esposito would direct the pilot, Captain America: The Winter Soldierdirectors the Russo brothers would direct episodes two and three, and that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnstonwas interested in directing episode four. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are writing the pilot
In July 2014, Fazekas talked about how the series would relate to the One-Shot, saying, “The short really is the basis for the series. [Carter]’s working at SSR, post-war… If you think of the short as sort of the end of the series, the series would be leading up to that moment where she gets assigned to S.H.I.E.L.D.” On the characters appearing in the series, stated that she did not “know how much of the short will live in this series”, with Butters adding, “I think obviously there’ll be some exciting people that you’ve seen before and new characters that populate her world. But what I like about [Carter] so much is it’s very much a Marvel property. It will have all those things you saw in the short, but we will really get to explore the emotional character”
