Yesterday was a huge day for DC Comics TV news, now Marvel and ABC have a big, surprise announcement of their own.
In addition to announcing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been renewed for a second season (rumor had it the show was on the bubble after a rocky start -- or at least a rocky year of CA recaps), they're also promising a new series based on Peggy Carter, the British spy played by Hayley Atwell in Captain America: The First Avenger. She'll retain the role in the new series, and it'll share a title with the Marvel "One-Shot" included in the Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray package, Agent Carter.
It's very, very early days, and there are a host of factors standing between the idea and its realization, but maybe, just maybe, there might one day be a Peggy Carter TV show set in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Mmmmmaybe.
Deadline reports a rumor that a TV series centered on the World War II secret agent - first seen on screen in Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger - is in early stages of development. The character was played in the movie by Hayley Atwell, who reprised the role for an Agent Carter short that appears as an extra on the Iron Man 3 DVD, out next week.
Movies: It looks like Iron Man 3's bonus Agent Carter short won't be the last time fans see actress Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter.
Humor: The One Cam imagines a brutal Avengers/Superman/Batman movie crossover... with a twist!
Upcoming: The Walking Dead
