Hayley Atwell Dishes On Marvel's AGENT CARTER In New Featurette

Tune in Tuesday, January 6 on ABC to catch the premiere of Marvel's seven-part television event, Agent Carter. Hit the jump to check out a new featurette with Hayley Atwell discussing where her character is currently situated after the war.


People.com has posted a new featurette for Marvel's Agent Carter. In it, Hayley Atwell ("Black Mirror") explains that 'Agent Peggy Carter' is bored doing clerical work at the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) after the war and things begin to pick up once her old friend Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) shows up. Atwell then goes on to describe her character, "She has an intelligence about her and a skill set that's very impressive and yet we get to see the emotional and psychological cost of her character, of someone who's having to live a double life."

It's 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – a.k.a. Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, "Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy -- the only person he can trust -- to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.
