Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.
Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.
Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.

A new piece of casting has added a significant piece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence system is called J.A.R.V.I.S., voiced by Paul Bettany. And by now you may now, J.A.R.V.I.S. is the basis for Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However no one has ever questioned why Stark would name J.A.R.V.I.S. “J.A.R.V.I.S.” That’s because, in the comics, Jarvis is the name of Stark’s butler. In the movies though, he doesn’t have a butler. Where’s the connection?
The connection comes in on ABC’s Agent Carter. That’s where James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas) has just been tasked to play Howard Stark’s butler, Edwin Jarvis. Read More »
