Hayley Atwell was the lovely and dangerous Agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger.
The character was great and we will get another chance to see her in the Agent Carter Marvel One Shot that will be on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.
The new short features Agent Carter of the the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) dealing with her sexist boss, Agent Flynn (Bradley Whitford) and tracking down the mysterious Zodiac.
Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito spoke about the production which also features Dominic Cooper returning as Howard Stark.
“First of all it’s a period piece. You have three fight scenes as opposed to Item 47, where we just had basically one action scene,” says D’Esposito. “We had five days – one more day than we did on Item 47 but I think it’s double in size. And also the visual style of it, that requires time. So there was pressure on us. I have people looking over my shoulder, looking at the watch saying, ‘Come on, you’re costing us a lot of money!’”
“It’s a year since Cap plunged into the ocean,” D’Esposito says. “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,” D’Esposito says. “We just want you to know it’s deadly, it’s important, bad guys are guarding it, and it’s imperative she gets it.”
We will have to wait until 24th September when the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray is released to see the short.
