Marvel's latest series to get an extended debut in January
Marvel have revealed that their new series, Agent Carter, will recieve an special 2 hour debut on 06th January 2015.
The series will folow Agent Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell (Captain America, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Duchess), as she balances her administrative role with secret missions for Howard Stark, played by Dominic Cooper (Captain America, Need For Speed, Abraham Lincoln: Vampir Hunter). There will also be appearances by several characters from the Marvel Universe and it is strongly rumoured that this will be where we first get to see Ant Man as Agent Carter has been confirmed to appear in the Ant Man movie, which will be launched on 17th July 2015.
Agent Carter will also be accompanied by a number of recurring characters including Howard Stark's butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy), Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) an agent with the SSR, Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) A war Veteran who is now an Agent with the SSR and Roger Dooley (Shea Whigham) the SSR Chief.
The release of Agent Carter will surely be good news for Marvel fans, filling the gap during the Mid Season break of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. As always it looks as though Agent Carter will tie in with events in the Marvel Universe' movies, leading us in to the afore-mentioned Ant Man movie as well as possibly having tie ins with the upcoming Avengers:Age of Ultron.
