Has any secondary Marvel Cinematic Universe character been as welcomed into the fold as Peggy Carter? Well, Phil Coulson. Which explains why both of them have gotten a chance to helm their own shows on ABC. “Agent Carter” has been a surprisingly biting deconstruction of living as a woman in a man’s world, whether in 1946 or 2015. HitFix sat down to talk with star Hayley Atwell about Peggy’s determination to stand on her own merit, what kind of childhood might have led to that level of bull-headed self-confidence, and how far we've come towards equality (but not nearly far enough). Hitfix: Before we get started, I just have to say...I follow you on Twitter and you have been killing it! Hayley Atwell: I have great fun on Twitter, so I’m very happy that I have followers! When you were filming “Agent Carter” and taking all those photos, »

Pioneering woman director Lois Weber socially conscious drama 'Shoes' among Library of Congress' Packard Theater movies (photo: Mary MacLaren in 'Shoes') In February 2015, National Film Registry titles will be showcased at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theater – aka the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation – in Culpeper, Virginia. These range from pioneering woman director Lois Weber's socially conscious 1916 drama Shoes to Robert Zemeckis' 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future. Another Packard Theater highlight next month is Sam Peckinpah's ultra-violent Western The Wild Bunch (1969), starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine. Also, Howard Hawks' "anti-High Noon" Western Rio Bravo (1959), toplining John Wayne and Dean Martin. And George Cukor's costly remake of A Star Is Born (1954), featuring Academy Award nominees Judy Garland and James Mason in the old Janet Gaynor and Fredric March roles. There's more: Jeff Bridges delivers a colorful performance in »

Michael McKean stars in “Better Call Saul” as Jimmy’s older brother, Chuck, a far more successful lawyer who’s coping with an as-yet-unnamed condition that has limited his ability to lead a normal life.
Did you enjoy filming “Better Call Saul”?
It was a great experience — hard work, long days, 15 hours in the desert but well-worth it. I had a wonderful time working with Vince again. He and Frank Spotnitz created a character for me for “The X Files” that I did for a string of shows. I’m glad we’re together again, as they say in the business. But I haven’t seen a frame of “Saul.” I don’t like to see it until it’s too late.
Why did you sign on for “Saul”?
