“Agent Carter” has the makings of a hit. For starters, it has a wildly likable lead in Hayley Atwell. Atwell, known to audiences through her role as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, has her own series set to debut on January 6, 2015. With only two more weeks until Marvel fans get another look at an as of yet unseen corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ABC Studios have released the first clip from episode one.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” looks like a fun and massively entertaining series. So far it seems like a cross between Captain America: The First Avenger and ABC’s past series Alias. Marvel and ABC have already announced that Joe Johnston of The First Avenger and Anthony & Joe Russo of The Winter Soldier are set to direct future episodes.
As a fan of Hayley Atwell, an actress who certainly deserves the Marvel Spotlight, I feel “Agent Carter” is the perfect series for the House of Ideas. Blending in aspects of the M.C.U. with the inclusion of Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark and Costa Ronin as Anton Vanko (Ivan “Whiplash” Vanko’s father; let’s not forget Iron Man 2) “Agent Carter” is going to leave fans and newcomers very excited.
Atwell is also sure to melt hearts and keep homes warm during the cold, winter months.
