Marvel's Agent Carter Gets Two Key Roles Filled

Posted by Unknown Sunday, August 31, 2014
Here comes another news flash from the lovable juggernaut of entertainment that is Marvel. With their cinematic films series blowing away both critics and audiences and making records fall at the box office, they continue to make waves in the TV world. With Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. about to kick off season 2, they've announced two additions to another one of their (upcoming) shows, Marvel's Agent Carter.

TV series Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell
Set to star the delicious Hayley Atwell in the titular role, Marvel's Agent Carter gets two more cast members signing on. These two fellas are Chad Michael Murray in the role of SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) gent Jack Thompson and Enver Gjokai as Agent Daniel Sousa.

Both of these studs will be joining Peggy while she takes on a new role at the SSR headquarters in New York City. Details thus far are not too in-depth, but we do know a few little tidbits about the main thrust of the storyline.

Premiering in 2015, Marvel's Agent Carter will see Atwell's character from Captain America beginning in 1946 shortly after World War II. She finds herself pushed off to the side once peace reigns and the male soldiers return from fighting on the front lines. We also get to see Tony Stark's father, Howard, in a key role managing Carter at SSR. Marvel likes those acronyms, don't they?

It seems like they will throw in some romance as Peggy picks up the pieces of her broken heart after losing Steve Rogers (Captain America, for those that are comic book challenged) when the hero took a nose dive into an icy grave. On the Blu-ray for Iron Man 3, Marvel did a little "One Shot" and showed what Marvel's Agent Carter might be capable of, and I think the idea has a lot of potential.

What say you? Will this be a solid addition to the Marvel television line-up? Sound off below.
