ComingSoon.net: Marvel Studios is tomorrow.
Comment From Guest

Spencer Perry-SHH: Doubtful. They’ve only just started on Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter doesn’t shoot til next month.
Comment From Matthias
Is there a livestream to watch?
ComingSoon.net: But then again, this is Marvel, so who knows.
Spencer Perry-SHH: Nope, hence the live blog
Comment From Guest
Could we hear news about daredevil?
Spencer Perry-SHH: I hope so, he’s my favorite
Silas Lesnick: Hey everybody! Things are about to get started here in Ballroom 20.
Silas Lesnick: There are still a few more fans trickling in, but it seems just about every seat is taken.
Silas Lesnick: Personally, I’m super excited for this one. I’ve grown really fond of AoS over the course of the first season.
Comment From Joey
Agent Carter takes place during the midseason break,right?
Spencer Perry-SHH: Correct. Starts in EARLY 2015
Comment From John
I thought for sure enough people had lined up for hours that the ballroom would be full long before the panel started.
Silas Lesnick: It’s been packed all day, but some people left who were here for previous panels, so they’re letting in as many people from the line as they can.
Comment From DuToit
Will any of the cast be present at the panel?
Silas Lesnick: Yep! I believe that just about everyone from the main cast is here, but I bet we’ll get a few surprises, too!
Silas Lesnick: The Marvel logo has just come on the screens!
Silas Lesnick: The score is building in intensity over the speakers at the moment, but the stage is still empty.
Silas Lesnick: Moderator Jeph Loeb has taken the stage to thunderous applause!
Silas Lesnick: Loeb, of course, is also the show’s Executive Producer.
Silas Lesnick: He says we’ll be seeing some big surprises!
Silas Lesnick: He’s doing a quick recap of the first season, although it seems like the crowd is finishing his sentences for him 🙂
Silas Lesnick: “Any fans of SHIELD?” (applause!) “Any fans of Hydra?” (even louder applause!)
Silas Lesnick: He just unbuttoned his shirt to reveal a Hydra logo t-shirt!
ComingSoon.net: Hail Hydra.
Silas Lesnick: Not you, Mirko! 🙂
Silas Lesnick: They just put an Agent Carter logo on the screen!
ComingSoon.net: Here’s the shirt reveal – https://twitter.com/Agentso…
Silas Lesnick: CARTER Showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas have taken the stage!
Silas Lesnick: Joined by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who wrote the Carter character in both Captain America films.
Silas Lesnick: Now Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito has joined them…
Silas Lesnick: Hayley Atwell, too!
Silas Lesnick: Fazekas and Butters and talking about moving from their previous series, Resurrection, which they’ll be continuing on in addition to their work on Agent Carter.
Silas Lesnick: Markus and McFeely say they’re really excited for the series because they didn’t have time to do more with Carter in The Winter Soldier.
Comment From João Paulo – BR
I love Hayley, but they tell nothing about the supporting cast?
Silas Lesnick: It looks like there are still two empty seats! We’ll see 🙂
Silas Lesnick: They’ve just handed out lanyards with the SHIELD logo and what looks to be a QR code. Let’s see where it leads…
Silas Lesnick: No footage yet because they haven’t started shooting.
Silas Lesnick: The series will be set in 1946 and there will be some historical connectivity with Agents of SHIELD.
Silas Lesnick: It looks like they are showing something! Be right back!
Silas Lesnick: We just saw a very cool teaser, although it’s made mostly of footage from the short and The First Avenger.
Silas Lesnick: It’s a montage of actual newsreels from the era with Carter herself narrating.
Silas Lesnick: Mixed in with historical footage, we see some newspaper headlines that imply that Howard Stark will be accused of being a traitor.
Silas Lesnick: The Russos are directing both the second and third episode of AGENT CARTER!
Silas Lesnick: Joe Johnston will be directing the fourth episode!
Spencer Perry-SHH: Awesome!
Silas Lesnick: The first audience question arrives from a Peggy Carter cosplayer!
Silas Lesnick: Another Peggy cosplayed is asking about Dominic Cooper!
Silas Lesnick: D’Esposito is playing it coy, saying “It would be wonderful if that could happen.”
Silas Lesnick: Ha! A THIRD Carter cosplayer! She’s asking about other strong female characters in the supporting cast.
Silas Lesnick: The show runners say that they can’t reveal too much yet, but imply that we’ll see some very strong female character “both good and bad”.
Silas Lesnick: Another cosplayer, but this one is a female Winter Soldier!
Silas Lesnick: She asked about Atwell serving as a role model for women. She says it’s something that makes her incredibly proud.
Silas Lesnick: I think that’s it for Agent Carter. The Marvel logo is back up.
Silas Lesnick: One of the other cool bits from the teaser is some fake WWII footage of planes with the Stark Industries logo on them.
Silas Lesnick: They just showed a lengthy recap of the first season. It’s all old footage, but it’s awesome seeing it on a big screen!
Comment From Curious George
Where does the QR code on the lanyard badge lead?
Silas Lesnick: No luck scanning it yet! It might not be active yet.
Silas Lesnick: Here comes the cast! Iain Da Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge appropriately entered together…
Silas Lesnick: Followed by Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen!
Silas Lesnick: Brett Dalton has entered, also wearing a HYDRA shirt!
Silas Lesnick: A big, big standing ovation now for Clark Gregg!
Comment From Dora the explorer
Agente Carter has a date already?
Silas Lesnick: No date, but the teaser says 2015.
Silas Lesnick: “There may be a few more surprises coming,” says Loeb, as he begins the questions for the cast.
Silas Lesnick: Loeb just asked De Caestecker (Fitz) about how he now feels about Agent Ward.
Silas Lesnick: He says he’s heartbroken and doesn’t want to talk about it.
Silas Lesnick: Same question for Wen!
Silas Lesnick: “Let’s just say, it made me want to do some home improvement. With some power tools. On his foot.”
Silas Lesnick: Henstridge says that playing Simmons makes her feel a lot more intelligent.
Silas Lesnick: “I almost said cleverer, but that would have ruined the point.”
Silas Lesnick: Bennet is complaining that she only got to be an Agent for one day before “it all went to s–t”
Silas Lesnick: “I still ship Skye/Ward,” says Bennett, “But it’s going to take awhile.”
Silas Lesnick: “In the meantime, I’m just fine with Skimmons.”
Silas Lesnick: Loeb is asking Dalton how it felt to learn Ward’s secrets.
Silas Lesnick: He said he was so worried about his meeting that he stalled as long as he could.
Silas Lesnick: After he found out, his jaw dropped for 15 minutes.
Silas Lesnick: “So I’m not being fired?” he laughs. “But I’m a bad guy? And I’m not a part of the team?”
Silas Lesnick: “Agent Coulson, Director Coulson and Clark have been merging,” Gregg kids.
Silas Lesnick: “And all of us,” he says of learning he was becoming Director Coulson, “At that moment all said ‘Squeeeeeee!'”
Silas Lesnick: Some cast announcements are coming!
Silas Lesnick: They’re confirming Lucy Lawless “playing a longtime SHIELD veteran”
Silas Lesnick: “Her name is Isabelle Hartley…. She may always have a knife by her side.”
Silas Lesnick: An actor named Nick Blood is joining the cast.
Silas Lesnick: He plays a mercenary. No name yet!
Silas Lesnick: I suspect Isabelle is the woman that Victoria hand was dating in the comics.
Silas Lesnick: Daniel Whitehall, “The Kraken” will be featured in season two, too!
Silas Lesnick: They’re about to explain the lanyards…
Silas Lesnick: Coulson says Marvel and SHIELD are basically the same thing.
Silas Lesnick: “Everything we give you will have a secret purpose!”
Silas Lesnick: The lanyard will access “The unseen missions of Season One”
Silas Lesnick: Hold on, footage is coming…
Silas Lesnick: They just showed a lengthy (and really, really funny) blooper reel!
Silas Lesnick: It looks like an incredible fun set. One of the best laughs comes from a scene where Coulson is talking to Simmons, Skye and May and they all end with, “Yes, Charlie!” and strike CHARLIE’s ANGELS poses.
Silas Lesnick: The first audience question comes from a little kid Coulson cosplayer (carrying Coulson’s massive gun, too!)
Silas Lesnick: The question has been asked about who they feel about Ward potentially being redeemed.
Silas Lesnick: “Terrible” – says Simmons
Silas Lesnick: “Fine” says Fitz.
Silas Lesnick: Bennet says he’s sexier as HYDRA.
Silas Lesnick: “I don’t feel good about it,” says Gregg, “But maybe if he brings Fitz a monkey.”
Silas Lesnick: A Deadpool cosplayer asked if Deadpool could appear on the show but Loeb says they don’t have the rights.
Comment From Bob, Agent of HYDRA
Who else is on the panel? Is Maurissa Tancharoen Whedon there?
Silas Lesnick: Yep, sorry. They’re there too, with Jeff Bell.
Silas Lesnick: A little girl just asked the cast how they reacted to the Ward news.
Silas Lesnick: Coulson says that the reveal is, in reality, just like the the characters learning about the twist.
Silas Lesnick: Although he says that, in reality, he ultimately thought it was really, really fun and cool.
Silas Lesnick: “You were freaking out going ‘He kissed me!'” Wen says to Bennet. “I slept with him!”
Silas Lesnick: Dalton says that, as much has he hated not hanging out with the cast as much, it was kind of worth it to act with Bill Paxton.
Silas Lesnick: Gregg says that, immediately after learning about the twist, the whole cast got to see a super-early screening of THE WINTER SOLDIER.
Silas Lesnick: Season two started filming yesterday.
Silas Lesnick: They’re about to show something…
Silas Lesnick: The footage opens on the SHIELD logo with a spotlight on it.
Silas Lesnick: A shadow enters, falling across the eagle logo.
Silas Lesnick: It’s Patton Oswalt, in character as Agent Koenig! He’s talking about the importance of lanyards.
Silas Lesnick: He’s wearing the same lanyard they gave us.
Silas Lesnick: Midway through Koenig’s speech, another Oswalt has entered. They’re arguing back and forth.
Silas Lesnick: Mockingbird is going to be joining the team!
Silas Lesnick: Sadly, that looks like it for the panel. No word on who might be playing her.
Comment From Joey
Who is Mockingbird?
Silas Lesnick: Mockingbird is an Avenger! She’s been part of the comics since the early 70s.
Comment From Goop
Mockingbirds back story is actually pretty similar to Skye.
Silas Lesnick: In theory, she could BE Skye 🙂
Spencer Perry-SHH: Wonder if Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye will show up and visit her 🙂
Silas Lesnick: That’d be mighty cool!
Silas Lesnick: I’m out, guys! Thanks so much for reading!
Silas Lesnick: Of course, we’ll have the BIG Marvel panel live-blogged tomorrow, so expect a LOT of developments in the MCU.
