Marvel's new One-Shot short film Agent Carter is an absolute blast! It is Marvel's best short film hands down for one reason and one reason alone, female lead Hayley Atwell. She steps back into the role of Peggy Carter, from Captain America: The First Avenger, and this is definitely an extension to the first Cap movie as soon as it begins.

Atwell's character was a part of something special when Steve Rogers gained his superhuman powers. Now, despite losing Rogers, Atwell is once again a part of something special. She's actually at the beginning of laying some very important ground work for a large piece of the modern day Marvel Cinematic Universe. Agent Carter sort of serves as another origin story.

Agent Carter kicks some serious butt, with a spy-like feel to it, and will make nearly every female Marvel fan(atic) very, very happy with the action that takes place. Here's a quick hint about the action, at one point she takes on multiple bad guys. These baddies are working for, or protecting, a MacGuffin that will get Marvel fans talking too.

After all the butt-kicking is done, actor Dominic Cooper is seen and reprises his role as Howard Stark. Cooper performs it with the same wit as he did in the first Cap film and is entertaining as ever as Tony Stark's young father.

Even when the credits roll, it's not over. Make sure you keep watching because Marvel has included a very humorous end credits scene with Stark and a surprise actor that'll make you laugh out loud. You'll have to wait and see what all of this means for yourself when Agent Carter is available on the Iron Man 3 Blu Ray release on September 24.

This will be awesome when we all get to see it. So wish I was a the Con.

Tomorrow is going to be even more awesome with the Marvel and Fox panels. Hopefully even DC/WB will get into the game. Lots of epicness the next few years for CBM fans. Haters should be feelin' the love, cause it's a-comin!

Dc might just come out with one film which I say who cares Marvels has like six films or more already planned and a TV show which is sounding like its a great show. Marvel already won game over dc can't catch up now, so to Marvel fans keep calm and marvel on to great future of marvel comic book films.

Don't know why it has to be about which company is "winning." Anyways, I'm looking forward to this and it will be the ONLY reason I buy IM3, because the movie was absolute crap, just like about everything else Marvel has been releasing just to get the jump on DC. They are like college freshmen with beer, quantity over quality. Out of all their movies, the first iron man, cap America and avengers were the only good ones, some others were okay hen you have punisher war zone, both ghost riders and Thor that were absolutely horrible. I don't think Marvel phase 3 will get more than two movies in because no one will go see Antman or Doc Strange other than fanboys, but they will want to see the second Superman, justice league and Dark Universe, so I'm expecting companies to change places about 2016 and on till the reboots happen.

Would be awesome if AGENTS OF SHIELD had whole episode flashbacks featuring Peggy. Spinoff show by 2014?

She has a certain subtle allure about herself…

… I think it may be perhaps HER BREASTS

I kid, I kid… I really do enjoy this character, my heart broke with her's at the end of the movie.
