AGENT CARTER: Are These The Supporting Characters We'll See In The Show?
We know Marvel's upcoming tv series will focus on the Agent of the title, Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter, but which other characters will be joining her? The website Film Divider reckon they know, so click on to find out for yourselves..
Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return September 23rd, and set to bridge the gap while its on Winter hiatus is Agent Carter, which will see Hayley Atwell reprise her role from both Captain America: The First Avenger and the succeeding Marvel "One Shot". We knew that the show will be set in and around the time that one shot, but we didn't know who else we can expect to see join Peggy in the events leading up to the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D. Well, now Film Divider have some names for us.
Deputy Director Roger Hooley is a hardworking, principled older man and Peggy’s boss. As you might expect, he’s bothered by ongoing problems in his personal life as well as the challenges of his day job.
Agent Jack Thompson is in his 30s, handsome and damn well knows it. The polar opposite of Dooley, he doesn’t take kindly to women in the workplace, nor how little recognition he gets. Worse, he wants Dooley’s job and is desperate to prove himself.
Edward Hutchins is a highly professional agent with an unusual problem; duplicity. He’s lying to his wife about what he does to stop her worrying. True Lies, SHIELD style.
Daniel Sousa is everything Jack Thompson wants to be. He’s a war hero who walks using a leg brace, but finds dealing with office politics to be harder than working around his injury. Sousa is also a fiercely honourable, gentle man and we’re betting he becomes one of Peggy’s major allies.
And outside of the agency, there’s Angie Martinelli. Working as an automat waitress, Angie dreams of being a singer. She’s a tough, compassionate young woman who is smart and loyal and seems set to be Peggy’s anchor to the world away from SHIELD.
I'm not too well up on my classic Marvel lore, but I don't recognize any of those names as being established comic book characters -- though aside from possibly some of the remaining Howling Commandos, I'm not sure exactly who could have been utilized for this time period anyway. There's no mention of any villains (though that Thompson fella doesn't sound particularly nice!) yet, so I'm sure we'll have more character announcements to come. In the meantime, what do you guys think?
