“Agent Carter” Goes to Comic-Con
Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Agent Carter picks off shortly after Captain America: the First Avenger, and follows the post-World War II era female spy Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell). And it looks like the show is headed for some changes in its sophmore year: while the first season was set in New York City, the second season is headed to Los Angeles, which the creators think will take it in an interesting direction says Claudio Loureiro.
Butters said that it is “a great place for us location wise, so you can see so many different parts of glamor and grit.”
Fazekas expanded on that idea, adding “In Los Angeles, you have the spectacular wealth, glamour and beauty right next to the grit and crime—often right up against each other. We’re very much being inspired by Noir films.”
A poster, exclusive for ComicCon attendees, has also been released, which shows a nearly photorealistic picture of Peggy Carter looking confident as she holds up a gun. Side character Jarvis (with whom she’s often shipped) stands behind her holding an umbrella, with a S.H.I.E.L.D. logo and city backdrop behind them.
