Now that ABC have officially announced that their Agent Carter show is a go, they can let this bit of Photoshop fun out of the labs. What’s more, here’s the plot blurb:
Marvel’s Agent Carter, starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad.
Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.
Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Marvel’s Agent Carter is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.

As we understand it, the plan is for this 13-episode miniseries to run mid-season, holding the fort while Agents of SHIELD is taking a nap. This should translate into 36 straight weeks of Marvel TV on ABC. Just 16 more weeks of something, guys, and you can be a year-round concern. Next year, maybe?
While the two SHIELD shows, modern and historical, are underway, we’ll also have the Netflix Daredevil series rolling out and Age of Ultron in cinemas. Thank heavens that Marvel are actually pretty darn good at this stuff.
