Agent Carter short gives us more Peggy Carter!

Agent Carter

Hayley Atwell returns as Agent Peggy Carter for a new Marvel Universe short called Agent Carter. The short will premiere at the San Diego ComicCon, and will eventually end up on the Iron Man 3 BluRay. It is similar but much bigger than the prior short Item 47 (which was itself a step up from the Agent Coulson shorts)

“First of all it’s a period piece. You have three fight scenes as opposed to Item 47, where we just had basically one action scene,” says D’Esposito. “We had five days – one more day than we did on Item 47 but I think it’s double in size. And also the visual style of it, that requires time. So there was pressure on us. I have people looking over my shoulder, looking at the watch saying, ‘Come on, you’re costing us a lot of money!’”

“It’s a year since Cap plunged into the ocean,” D’Esposito says. “And in our mind, we said there’s a few SSR offices. If you want to relate it to now, it’s like the OSS, the precursor to the CIA. The SSR is the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D. There’s some satellite offices in New York and right now their primary concern is getting Zodiac.”

Dominic Cooper will return as Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark, and other Marvel cameos are hinted, but there is no confirmation yet. In any event, Atwell’s Carter was a big part of why Captain America was awesome, and I will be very happy to see her in action again!
