Here are some more pre-Comic-Con goodies, this time in the shape of a rather ace, Pulp Fiction-esque poster for Marvel short Agent Carter. The poster and some swish new images have been debuted by Entertainment Weekly in advanced of the Captain America spin-off's debut in San Diego next week.
Agent Carter is this year's Item 47, the Marvel one-shot debuted at last year's 'Con to general glee. While Atwell's wartime agent will pop up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it's likely to be a brief cameo as an elderly lady. Agent Carter, then, should satisfy fans yearning to find out what became of the character once Cap has set off on his ill-fated flight with the Red Skull.
"Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards", elaborates Atwell, "so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically 'What Peggy Did Next'." Judging by these new pics, the answer is pretty clear. She kicked some serious ass.
It's the brainchild of Marvel's co-president and short-filmmaker-in-chief Louis D’Esposito, and will see Carter doing battle with evildoers and chauvinism alike.
Head over to EW for the full gallery. If you're not making the trip to Comic-Con, fear not. Agent Carter will appear as a DVD extra on Captain America 2. For more on that movie, feast your eyes on this new concept art, hot off the press.
