Report: Marvel developing Agent Carter for TV

Marvel may not have any (announced) movies with an undisputed female lead in the pipeline, but could they have a TV show? Deadline reports that they’re currently developing a show based on Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter. Atwell recently starred in Agent Carter, a short film on the Iron Man 3 DVD, that takes the character beyond the events of 2011’s Captain America. The short was well-received by early audiences.

Atwell’s return isn’t a sure thing, and the show going forward will no doubt be somewhat dependent on how Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. does, but it’s a welcome development. The Iron Man 3 DVD and S.H.I.E.L.D. both debut next TuesdayAgent Carter

  1. Yes, the 15 minute “Agent Carter” one-shot short film IS that good where it could stand on its own either as a TV series or a feature film. Think 1940s female James Bond.

  2. The Lat/Long given in the clip (40.6518 N, 73.9522 W) is for a spot in Brooklyn, a corner building on Rogers Ave, and Martense Street, and Google maps plots the address as 789 Rogers Ave. A little nod to Captain America there?
