The Daily Mirror is reporting that an Agent Peggy Carter TV series is a go and that Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) will star.
Hayley is absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity and is incredibly grateful to Marvel fans who have basically been campaigning for a spin-off show for the past six months.
Marvel has yet to confirm these reports, so it could still be a rumor for all we know. In any case, let’s hope that Agent Carter is nothing like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has been a huge disappointment for Marvel fans, thus far, including myself.
I have to say that I really enjoyed the Agent Carter one-shot that we got in the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray release, which showed Peggy kicking ass and still looking as gorgeous as ever, so there’s definitely potential here. As long as they don’t fuck it up, and let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
