Marvel May Take Agent Peggy Carter From A One-Shot To Her Own TV Series
Agent Peggy Carter has her own Marvel one-shot on the upcoming release of the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, but Marvel may be transferring their newest agent from a standalone mission on a home video release to a full-fledged TV series. Deadline broke the news that Marvel is in the very early stages of developing what could turn into its second live-action TV show.
Item 47 premiered on The Avengers Blu-ray and had a small hand in the idea that turned into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which premieres next week). With the Peggy Carter news, it seems Marvel‘s one-shots are quickly turning into testing grounds for bigger projects. The site states that they can’t get any word or comment from the highly secretive Marvel/Disney/ABC machine, but the company is working on a concept for a “potential TV series inspired by Agent Carter.” The project is in very, very early stages and there isn’t any indication if Hayley Atwell will come aboard for a regular role. The series is looking for a writer now. Deadline teasingly adds that this is only one of several TV projects in the works.
There’s been a lot of talk about a female-led feature film, but a TV series would be a great alternative for the time being. Since this is in early stages it could chance at any moment though. If Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a big success, then we can safely assume Marvel will start looking at other properties to bring to the small screen. Agent Carter‘s short would tie in rather nicely with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so one can see why it would be toward the top of the list. What do you think about Agent Carter possibly getting her own show?
