Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has definitely blazed a television trail for Marvel Studios. Its success has proven that the stories and characters of the MCU can and do translate to the small screen. Couple that with the popularity of the Agent Carter One-Shot featuring Captain America: The First Avenger‘s stalwart Peggy Carter, and you have the studio’s next long-form project.
This fall will see the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but in January, Agent Carter will star in her own 8-episode season, following her adventures in a post-World War II/pre-Cold War world. Actress Hayley Atwell reprises her role as Peggy, and will be joined by Dominic Cooper, Enver Gjokaj, and Chad Michael Murray as the series explores the origins of S.H.I.E.L.D.
At San Diego Comic-Con, we joined the roundtable discussions with series co-creators Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Executive Producers Michele Fazekas, Tara Butters, and Louis D’Esposito, and star Hayley Atwell to talk about what we can expect from the series, and what this era of the Marvel Universe can offer.
