We’ve known for some time that Hayley Atwell would be starring in her own Marvel One-Shot and that it would debut at this year’s Comic-Con. Now, Entertainment Weekly has debuted a first look at Agent Carter as well as a poster for the upcoming short film, which will pick up not long after Captain America: The First Avenger.
“It’s a year since Cap plunged into the ocean,” says Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito. “And in our mind, we said there’s a few SSR offices. If you want to relate it to now, it’s like the OSS, the precursor to the CIA. The SSR is the precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D. There’s some satellite offices in New York and right now their primary concern is getting Zodiac.”
“Zodiac in the books has been many many different things. We just want you to know it’s deadly, it’s important, bad guys are guarding it, and it’s imperative she gets it.”
Agent Carter will feature the return of Atwell as the titular hero as well as Dominic Cooper as Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark. Fans will be able to see the premiere at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and will be able to watch it at home on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.
