Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ Teases New Poster, Possible Supporting Cast Reveal
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ has dropped plenty of breadcrumbs as to who and what we might see when season 2 premieres this fall, but up until now companion series ‘Agent Carter‘ has been kept a bit tighter under wraps. In advance of the Comic-Con 2014 panel next week, check out a brand new poster for either Marvel TV series, and a few hints of what’s to come for the period piece’s supporting cast!
We’re taking this one with a few grains of salt as well, following FilmDivider’s earlier reports on the ‘True Detective‘ season 2 cast, but for now the site appears to have gotten a hold of the supporting cast of characters to populate Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ series. As previously reported, the Hayley Atwell-starring take off the original ‘Iron Man 3‘ one-shot will unfold over eight episodes in between the first and second halves of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ season 2.
See for yourself, who Peggy might find herself keeping company with:
Deputy Director Roger Hooley is a hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.
Agent Jack Thompson is in his 30s, handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.
Edward Hutchins is a highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. He’s lying to his wife about what he does to stop her worrying. True Lies, SHIELD style.
Daniel Sousa is everything Jack Thompson wants to be. He’s a war hero who walks using a leg brace, but finds dealing with office politics to be harder than working around his injury. Sousa is also a fiercely honourable, gentle man and we’re betting he becomes one of Peggy’s major allies.
And outside of the agency, there’s Angie Martinelli. Working as an automat waitress, Angie dreams of being a singer. She’s a tough, compassionate young woman who is smart and loyal and seems set to be Peggy’s anchor to the world away from SHIELD.
The ‘Agent Carter’ series will be executive produced by ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ writers Christopher Markus and Steve McFeely, who also wrote the pilot, along with ‘Reaper’ creators/showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas. Marvel Studios film producers Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Jeph Loeb will also act as producers.
Here’s how Marvel describes ‘Agent Carter’:
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter,’ starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ along with the short ‘Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.’
Additionally, TVGuide debuted a sharp new poster highlighting both ‘Agent Carter’ and ‘Agents of SHIELD’ season 2, which fans at Comic-Con 2014 will be able to check out. We’ll be on hand to find out the latest from either Marvel series, but what do you think? Will ‘Agent Carter’ manage to replicate the success of the one-shot?
