Sure, Peggy earned some begrudging respect from her fellow SSR operatives in this past week’s mission alongside the Howling Commandos, but the Stark really hits the fan (forgive me) in next week’s “A Sin to Err,” as Peggy herself becomes a wanted fugitive for her covert acts. Worse than that, secret super-spy Dottie Underwood literally sets her sights on Peggy, and Cap isn’t around to throw his mighty shield.

Early on in “The Iron Ceiling,” Jarvis tells Peggy that she’ll never get her male co-workers to respect her, to which she replies that she’ll just have to make them do it. And that’s just what Peggy does in tonight’s new episode of ‘Agent Carter,’ for it’s only her Russian expertise and code-cracking abilities that can help the SSR on their mission to pursue Leviathan and Tony Stark, and it’s only Peggy who’s pals with the 107th, aka the Howling Commandos (they hate that name).
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ hasn’t leaned on MCU connections in the manner ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ had early on, yet the Hayley Atwell-starring prequel may yet bring us our first taste of a fan-favorite Avenger. Find out what “The Iron Ceiling” will reveal about the deadly Black Widow in the latest promo and intel for Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter!’
We’ve heard for a while now that Agent Peggy Carter will be making an appearance in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ movie, but we weren’t quite sure how. Hayley Atwell reprised her ‘Captain America’ role for ‘The Winter Soldier,’ which featured a much, much older Peggy, but how old will Peggy be if and when she appears in ‘Ant-Man’? Thanks to the new, official prequel comic from the film, we’ve got some answers.
Howard Stark returns on tonight’s ‘Agent Carter,’ introducing the concept of the titular “Blitzkrieg Button,” although it proves to be little more than a distraction piled on top of a distraction for Peggy, who’s already working so diligently to lead what is essentially a triple-life. While the men at the SSR talk about what it means to be an agent, which is the most important part of who they are, it’s only Peggy who truly knows both the cost and the value of dedicating your life to the job.
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ will return from a brief hiatus tonight to push “The Blitzkrieg Button” on Howard Stark, but theirs aren’t the only major returns in line for the ‘Captain America’ spinoff. Next week’s “The Iron Ceiling” will see Dum Dum Dugan and the rest of the Howling Commandos return, as seen in the hour’s full photo set!
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ series took the week off to accommodate President Ellis Obama’s State of the Union address, but next Tuesday will see Peggy back in action, with Howard Stark in tow as thumbs circle “The Blitzkrieg Button.” See the return of Iron Man’s pappy and a mysterious new villain in the first photos from next week’s ‘Agent Carter!’
If you think the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating your life now, just wait until 2016 when Steve Rogers and Tony Stark go head-to-head in ‘Captain America: Civil War.’ It’s a movie so big that it actually scared ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ away from its original release date. So when you read the latest comments on the film by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who also wrote the first two ‘Captain America’ films), just try to imagine the amount of pressure on their shoulders. Lesser screenwriters would be crushed.
‘Agent Carter’ returns tonight with its third installment, “Time and Tide,” which finds Peggy perpetually just one step ahead of her male colleagues at the SSR as she and Jarvis continue to follow the lead left behind by the (now deceased) Leet Brannis. We may be three episodes in already, but ‘Agent Carter’ and Peggy herself are definitely not short on the action. “Time and Tide” eases up on the heavier elements of misogyny, finding a more relaxed rhythm for Peggy and Co.
