Potential AGENT CARTER Marvel TV Show In the Works
While the Agent Carter short film director has ensured there're more Peggy Carter stories to tell, it seems they're being developed into a new ABC series surrounding Hayley Atwell's beloved character.
A week from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s big premiere on ABC Network, word is out on Marvel/Disney's next potential small screen adaptation. According to Deadline, a new live-action series is being developed surrounding Peggy Carter, who was introduced in the Marvel cinematic universe as Captain America's main squeeze and a French Resistance in WWII played by Hayley Atwell. But it's the English actress' reprisal of the character in the Marvel short film Agent Carter, which features on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, that has led to the new potential ABC/Marvel series. Marvel failed to comment, but Deadline claims: "I hear the company is working on a concept for a potential TV series inspired by Agent Carter," which was directed by Marvel's co-president Louis D’Esposito. The report adds, "I hear the project is in very early stages, one of several in the works at Marvel, and is in the process of locking in a writer." This isn't too surprisingly especially considering D’Esposito has declared that the Agent Carter one-shot "isn’t the last Peggy Carter story." The filmmaker told the Huffington Post last week: "We want to tell more [stories] because she’s so good. I remember when we first met her to play the role of Peggy Carter, and I was with Joe Johnston and we were in London and you try to keep a poker face, but I couldn’t hide and Joe couldn’t hide our feelings. 'She’s the one! She’s the one!' She has a certain quality, you just can’t articulate that. People gravitate to her, love her performance, even when she’s beating up people." Agent Peggy Carter will be seen next in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier next summer. Anyhow, with The Avengers' Item 47 short film leading up to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s development, and Marvel seemingly heading the same route with Agent Carter, could these Marvel One-Shots actually be considered pilots? What do you think?
