A year after Captain America was lost in action, the war is over. However, Agent Peggy Carter is relegated to a desk job and frustrated at her male boss and comrades' sexist dismissal of her place in the SSR. Ordered to work late one night, Carter gets an alert that the villain, Zodiac, has been spotted. Deciding to take care of it herself, Carter is ready to show the enemies of peace why meeting this Agent 13 is bad luck for them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Did You Know?

Trivia

In the Marvel Comics Universe, Zodiac is the name of a supervillain team modeled after the figures of the zodiac that first fought the Avengers. In particular, one such member, Scorpio, was a major enemy of SHIELD in its first solo comics series in the 1960s by Jim Steranko. On the vial that Carter confiscates on her field mission is a symbol resembling the Zodiac Key, an advanced energy weapon that Scorpio and other members of Zodiac wield. See more »

Goofs

Howard Stark invites Peggy Carter to "run SHIELD with him." But the organization was called under its full name back then, not SHIELD. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the acronym SHIELD was not used (chronologically) until the first Iron Man movie (Phil Coulson coins SHIELD as an abbreviation at the end of that film; the acronym did not exist at the beginning of the movie).

A++, a brilliant short-movie
21 August 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Last year I was really pleased with Item 47. It was funny, smart, had a nice dialog and likable characters. I hoped Agent Carter would be at least that good.

Well, it was actually much, MUCH better. While Item 47 was generally enjoyable, Agent Carter is really touching. It brings some serious questions without loosing its lighter tone.

Hayley Atwell is phenomenal as Peggy Carter. Atwell just has it all - the emotional depth, the attractive looks, the cool moves - the whole package. She's playing the character with so much love, it's an absolute pleasure to watch her. Peggy is forced to live in a world of injustice and double standards. Her struggle to keep it together is wonderfully done here.

This short film feels like a mini-episode of Alias and that's one of the biggest compliments I could ever say about anything.

My only complain about it is that it's not a full-length feature film. Marvel fans deserve a female-lead full-length feature film. Peggy deserves her own full-length feature film. Atwell deserves full-length feature film. Please, Marvel, make it happen soon.
