Wonder where the location move will leave Jarvis and the rest of the supporting cast.

Comic-Con Poster for Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2 Arrives

SuperHeroHype

Jul 01, 2015

We learned earlier this summer that the second season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” would send the spy to the west coast for a brand new case, and the Comic-Con exclusive poster shows her arrival with her partner in crime (and Howard Stark’s butler), Edwin Jarvis. Fans can pick up the poster for free at the Marvel booth (#2339) next week during the event.

“There’s a case that goes beyond what the LAPD or normal local police would be able to handle that falls into their purview,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW. “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.”

“We have a nice organic way to infuse Jarvis. That was always the challenge. He’s not an agent. The case for the first season is over, so the biggest question for us this season was: We love Peggy and Jarvis together, that’s a really important relationship, how do we keep them together? LA has provided us a really nice, organic way to do so.”

Not only is James D’Arcy set to return for the second season, but the outlet also reports that Enver Gjokaj’s Agent Sousa will also be on board and that deals for Chad Michael Murray, Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan to return are in the works.

Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter and is executive produced by Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.

The series will air Tuesdays at 9 P.M. EST on ABC.

Probably 8 like last time since it's a mid-season filler again.

I guess it makes sense in that it's all flashback stuff that's really irrelevant to the current state of the mcu and basically only exists because fans asked for it, but it does strike me as odd that the only female led marvel installment has the least amount of production time. Then again, Peggy carter has had way more screen time than the hulk and hawkeye. How would you measure that, I wonder? I guess, technically Phil coulson has had the most screen time cumulatively of any character in the marvel cinematic universe.

Think of it this way, quality over quantity.

(and when you put screentime that way, look where Daredevil and Night Nurse sit...)

Night nurse?

edit: nevermind. Googled it. Rosario Dawson. Didn't realize she was an actual character. I just figured she was like coulson and Peggy carter; made up as a supporting character in the mcu.

Rosario Dawson (edit: well, she's sort of Night Nurse, she's an amalgam of NN and another Marvel character)


How many films has Peggy Carter been in now?...

Captain America
Captain America 2
Avengers 2
Ant-Man
(supposedly) Captain America 3
plus the Agent Carter One-Shot

...so if Cap 3 is right she'll be one film up on Coulson and one One-Shot down.

Word, but I was also factoring in their tv shows, which I feel like doesn't count in real time as much as some kind of nerd "dog years" kind of thing.

Looks like next season will be 10 episodes... I like their theory, sound very likely to me...

‘Agent Carter’ Season 2 to Feature Villain from Marvel Comics
By Molly Freeman

On the television side of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and Daredevil have been developing aspects of the mythology outside of the film entries. AoS introduced the Inhumans culture on television last year and will be following Skye’s Secret Warriors in its upcoming season. Daredevil has focused on street-level crime and will introduce Marvel favorite the Punisher to fight Matt Murdock. Meanwhile, Agent Carter delved into the origins of the Black Widow program in its first season and will be including some recognizable villains next year.

When Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) returns for season 2, the show will have two more episodes than season 1 and take place in 1940s Los Angeles rather than New York City. Additionally, according to the executive producers, viewers should expect some familiar villains from Marvel Comics.

In an interview with EW, executive producers Tara Butters and Michelle Fazekas said Agent Carter would be going in a different direction than was hinted in the season 1 finale. Instead of exploring Arnim Zola’s role in the Winter Soldier program, or the infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Hydra, Agent Carter will introduce “more than one” new villain in season 2. Though Fazekas said fans of Marvel Comics will recognize one of the villains, she did not reveal who fans can expect Peggy to be battling when she returns to television early next year.

Read Fazekas’ full quote:
Quote:
“People who are fans of the Marvel comic book universe will recognize our villain and there’s more than one villain. We’re certainly taking inspiration from the comic book universe, so anybody who knows that will be rewarded.”


In addition to Atwell returning as Peggy, both James D’Arcy and Enver Gjokaj have been announced to reprise their roles as Edwin Jarvis and Daniel Sousa respectively. Although Chad Michael Murray’s Jack Thompson and Lyndsy Fonseca’s Angie Martinelli haven’t officially been announced to return, they could potentially appear in season 2 as well.

As for which comics villains could appear in Agent Carter season 2, it’s difficult to say. However, one potential villain could be Baron Zemo, but not the version that will be played by Daniel Bruhl in Captain America: Civil War. The upcoming Captain America film will introduce Helmut Zemo, the son of the original Baron Zemo who worked as a scientist and weapon maker for The Red Skull (played by Hugo Weaving in Captain America: The First Avenger) in WWII.

While it’s possible Agent Carter could introduce and deal with this older Baron Zemo, that’s dependent on what aspects of the character’s origins will be used in Civil War. However, with so much else going on in the upcoming Captain America sequel, it’s likely the film won’t have much time to delve into Helmut Zemo’s backstory. That leaves plenty for Agent Carter to explore in its second season – that is, of course, if Butters and Fazekas are planning to include Zemo at all.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 3 premieres Tuesday September 29th @9pm on ABC; Jessica Jones airs season 1 on Netflix this fall; Agent Carter will likely air early in 2016; Daredevil season 2 will air in 2016, and Luke Cage and Iron Fist are expected on Netflix that same year. We’ll keep you updated on the new show Marvel and ABC are developing, as well.
