Marvel-ous News! ‘Agent Carter’ TV Series Is In Development at ABC

By  · Published on September 19th, 2013

It’s Marvel’s world and we’re all just living in it. While ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. doesn’t premiere until next week, the network and Marvel must have a lot of faith in that kooky bunch of special agents we keep seeing so many commericals about, for another Avengers-adjacent TV series is in the works. Agent Carter, inspired by the Marvel One Shot featured on the upcoming Iron Man 3 DVD, follows the badass secret agent’s life in the days after Captain America is encased in ice.

Though the project is still in its early planning stages, the show is being harkened to a 1950’s style Alias (think of the wigs!), and as Deadline pointed out, ABC is home to many a “female-skewing drama with a strong lead” so the series should have no problem finding an audience on the network. No word yet on if Hayley Atwell would reprise her role as Peggy Carter for television, but we can all hope that’s the case.

Another standout note from Deadline – Agent Carter isn’t the only secretive project Marvel has up their sleeves, as it is “one of several” in the works at this time. Whatever that means – more television? Their crazy load of movies planned up until 2021?

I guess we should just keep checking the DVD extras of Marvel movies for hints, shouldn’t we?
