Marvel's Agent Carter TV show official Logo and plot synopsis revealed
"Marvel's Agent Carter, starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter 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 must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."
The plot synopsis certainly sounds very intriguing, suggesting that Peggy Carter will have a lot on her plate to deal with including interesting tonal points on sexism and diversity. It's also interesting to note with the mention of the most recent Captain America movie "The Winter Soldier" and it's huge impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe inspiring the show that it could cover the development of some of the game changing themes presented within that film.
We're pretty excited to see what Marvel's Agent Carter has to offer, it's both great to see a strong female lead in Hayley Atwell getting the chance to shine and for more diversity in Marvel's line up with there being very few female core characters within the Marvel Cinematic Universe that have a true impact. We've high hopes for the show and given it's exciting setting and themes feel that it could easily surpass that of it's effective sister show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. What do you think to Marvel's Agent Carter are you as excited as we are about the show?
