THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN FUCKIN’ WANTED TO SEE!!!! Pardon, my English as I don’t speak French but this picture is exactly what I predicted for me to get back on board with Agents of SHIELD. Well, almost. Having the Agent Carter series will not only help to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but also prove a strong female lead who is also a non powered hero can make a lasting impact. Seeing her in action, in the early formation of SHIELD, fighting along side the Howling Commandos makes up for the disappointment in Agents of SHIELD. I am giving SHIELD another chance but now, I am only up to episode 8 and I’m sure it will pick up and end better than it started. (So, I’ve been told.)
To make this series even better, we need to have a couple of support characters already seen Captain America 1 and 2. First off, Howard Stark, (Iron Man’s daddy) does make an appearance though I can’t see or verify how many episodes. I went to IMDB and was able to see the character and actor (Dominic Cooper) but because this was a premium service I did not pay for that’s all that I can see. Still, if Howard is part of the ongoing storyline, we could see many ideas like the hover vehicle technology being tinkered or have him come up with new tech ala Q for James Bond for those at SHIELD.
Now, if you had watched Captain America 2 The Winter Soldier there was a major bombshell with Armin Zola (corn goodness. sorry the old Mazola commercial is running in my head every time I say Armin Zola) revealing how HYDRA was already embedded with SHIELD since the beginning. Let’s bring in Toby Jones to play Armin once more or for the duration of the series as he was instrumental to SHIELD all the while being a HYDRA agent. This would flesh out the series with a baddie that will only help the good guys provided it helps the HYDRA cause. That would be great as a running story line for the series. Having said this about Zola, when he was talking to Captain America as a computer, he showed a picture of a dead Howard Stark. How can this be?
At first I was thinking, someone fucked up on the timeline of Iron Man’s dad. From Iron Man 2, Tony is watch his old man doing a presentation for the Stark Expo. He is a much older man than the picture that Zola showed on the computer screen. Here’s the possible connection: the real Howard Stark was killed much earlier but was replaced with a HYDRA agent who under went a cosmetic procedure to not only look like him but to sound and act like Howard Stark. How this plays out, I don’t know but it would be an interesting thing to play around with and have fun with this possible storyline. There you have my take on Agent Carter.
Let’s see how the series lives up to our expectation.
As it was revealed earlier in the week, Hayley Atwell will be reprising her Captain America: The First Avenger role as Agent Peggy Carter in the Season 2 premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before she takes the lead in her own ABC series, simply titled Marvel’s Agent Carter. The first photo has debuted from the upcoming episode “Shadows” with kicks things off on September 23. While no plot details revolving around Peggy have been revealed, she is seen here with her Captain America: The First Avenger cohorts Jim Morita Kenneth Choi and Dum Dum Dugan Neal McDonough, two of the infamous Howling Commandos.
