First look at ‘Agent Carter,’ Hayley Atwell, set for January 2015

Marvel has been making headlines with their “Phase Three” movie news, but now they’ve released a teaser for Agent Carter, starring Haley Atwell as Peggy Carter, reprising her role from Captain America: The First Avenger.

Tuesday’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. offered a sneak peek at the spin-off.

Hayley-Atwell-as-Peggy-Carter-in-Agents-of-S-H-I-E-L-D--season-twoThe show is going to be packed full of action, particularly the titular character, Peggy Carter. If that box with the gun and her medal didn’t already show you she’s going to be a tough, just wait until she’s beating up bad guys. Carter  balances an office job with the Strategic Scientific Reserve and secret missions with Howard Stark, who has been framed for selling weapons on the black market.

Cinema Blend summarizes: “Peggy is working with Howard Stark is because someone is causing chaos with weapons he has developed, and Howard needs Peggy to track down the people responsible, dispose of the destructive devices and clear his name. To help her out, he has loaned his butler Edwin Jarvis to assist her on this mission. Jarvis, played by James D’Arcy, can be spotted at the 0:08 mark of the preview, so it looks like the ABC show is already setting him up as a main player. As for Howard’s weapons, it’s unclear whether they were directly stolen or if the people he originally gave them in turn sold them to individuals with sinister plans, but Peggy, Jarvis and their allies need to find those weapons before another war is started.”

Agent Carter has only shot a few episodes, so Marvel will likely release an extended trailer for the series over the next couple of months.

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who wrote both Captain America films, have been hired to put together the 8-episode first season of Agent Carter.  The Winter Soldier directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, will helm episodes two and three.

Atwell, D’Arcy co-star with Shea Whigham, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, Alexander Carroll, Lyndsy Fonseca with Dominic Cooper confirmed to play Howard Stark. 

Agent Carter will arrive January 2015, Tuesdays on ABC.
