Hayley Atwell‘s Peggy Carter isn’t lost in the past, despite the fact she got left behind in “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Her character is at the center of a new Marvel One Shot, called “Agent Carter.”
A clip from the short film has been released that shows Peggy in action as the titular character. This One Shot is set a year after the events of “Captain America: The First Avenger.” It premiered at San Diego Comic-Con.
“It’s a year since Cap plunged into the ocean,” Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito told Entertainment Weekly of the plot. “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. Zodiac in the books has been many many different things. We just want you to know it’s deadly, it’s important, bad guys are guarding it, and it’s imperative she gets it.”
“Agent Carter” also stars Bradley Whitford, Shane Black and a few other surprises. It will be released on the “Iron Man 3” Blu-ray, out Sept. 24.
