Marvel's Agent Carter Clip Arrives

Hayley Atwell kicks bottom

If you seethed with barely contained envy when the San Diego Comic-Con was treated to Agent Carter, the brand new Marvel One-Shot, last weekend, you may be happy to learn that a clip has been put online.

Set a year after the events in Captain America: The First Avenger, the short story finds Hayley Atwell’s resourceful Peggy Carter trying to throw herself into work following the disappearance of Chris Evans’s Steve Rogers.

Trouble is, she’s been transferred to a new government agency where her superior (in title only), played by Bradley Whitford has decided that a woman’s work should be limited to desk jobs. Naturally, Peggy disagrees and uses a tip-off as a chance to head out on a mission.

Directed by Louis D’Esposito (who also made last year’s Item 47), Agent Carter will be included in the Blu-ray and digital HD versions of Iron Man 3, due to hit UK shops on September 9. There’s more from Atwell in our Comic-Con round-up podcast, which is lurking below.
