Marvel's Agent Carter Scoop from Comic-Con

By Lisa Weseman | Aug 1st, 2014

At San Diego Comic-Con 2014, fans waited hours for a panel discussion with the cast and crew of midseason series Marvel's Agent Carter and returning series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel's Agent Carter will continue Agent Peggy Carter's story where Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier left off. It's 1946, Steve is gone, and with the war over, Peggy is marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. But Peggy persists, determined to make the world a better place.

 

 

 

Despite Peggy Carter's limited screen time in Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, producers said she is an incredibly popular character. The fans at Comic-Con certainly agreed, with several of them dressing up as Agent Carter.
