The ladies of Marvel are headed for ABC. No surprise, but ABC’s presentation at the TCA Winter Press Tour today was laden with new info about Marvel properties.
First, via Marvel.com, Jaimie Alexander is scheduled to follow in the footsteps of Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson and make a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.D. Lady Sif is scheduled for “a very special mission” to Earth in the 15th episode of the show, which I believe will air on February 18th, unless there are hiatuses for the Olympics.
That’s all par for the course over on that show.
But in more exciting news, Agent Carter is now one step closer to becoming a real TV show as well. Even though this rumor seems to be bunk, the potential new series based on the Marvel One Shot of the same name has now booked itself a couple of showrunners in the forms of Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, who are currently spearheading drama series Resurrection for the network. It’s also now officially got Hayley Atwell set to star if it comes to fruition, according to THR A pilot script is in and it’s good and ABC boss Paul Lee says of the show:
That certainly has a good chance to be on the network.
So, sounds like it’s still a ways off, but things are in motion and I’m getting really hopeful we’ll actually get to see Peggy Carter going on WWII spy adventures on a weekly basis.
