In 1946, Peggy Carter is relegated to secretarial duties in the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR). When Howard Stark is accused of treason, he secretly recruits Peggy to clear his name with the help of his butler, Edwin Jarvis.
Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.
When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
The war is over and almost everyone has experienced a loss. Agent Peggy Carter has lost the love of her life. To top it off, when billionaire Howard Stark is accused of Treason, he secretly employs her to clear his name. With the help of Stark's butler, she embarks on a whimsical journey full of deceit, murder and controversy with a side of wise-cracking roommates.Written by
Hayley Atwell describes her character's elderly appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) as a benefit for the show: "We have an opportunity, if the show does go into more seasons, we know that we can explore all of these aspects of her character because we know she lives such a long life and she's had a fulfilled life. obviously, the era is 1946 but in the second, third, fourth, fifth season - if it goes onto that - we can explore different time periods. We can explore the late forties, the early fifties, the sixties, the seventies, the eighties, up until present day, so it's very exciting because of that." See more »
Agent Carter is my new favorite show for sure! After some of the sketchy plot lines and flat characters on Agents of SHIELD (though I love that show as well), I had some fears for this show, but after last night, all of these have been dispelled! Peggy, as always, is a complete and total badass and hero. The show depicts her battling misogyny in a way that is still so relevant today. In that respect, the show is inspiring and empowering to me personally and I'm guessing to all the other women watching. But it has so much more than a feminist aspect going for it! The fight sequences are BRUTAL and entertaining, the dialog is witty and realistic, and the plot so far has proved interesting and shows great promise for the future. All in all, after the 2 hours I got of Agent Carter last night, I think it definitely has a place up there with Marvel's best films! I sincerely hope that this show will be a successful endeavor, so that Marvel will take the hint and keep making more like it! The world could never have enough Agent Carters.
