We learned earlier this summer that the second season of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” would send the spy to the west coast for a brand new case, and the Comic-Con exclusive poster shows her arrival with her partner in crime (and Howard Stark’s butler), Edwin Jarvis. Fans can pick up the poster for free at the Marvel booth (#2339) next week during the event.
“There’s a case that goes beyond what the LAPD or normal local police would be able to handle that falls into their purview,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW. “In Los Angeles, you have the spectacular wealth, glamour and beauty right next to the grit and crime—often right up against each other. We’re very much being inspired by Noir films.”
“We have a nice organic way to infuse Jarvis. That was always the challenge. He’s not an agent. The case for the first season is over, so the biggest question for us this season was: We love Peggy and Jarvis together, that’s a really important relationship, how do we keep them together? LA has provided us a really nice, organic way to do so.”
Not only is James D’Arcy set to return for the second season, but the outlet also reports that Enver Gjokaj’s Agent Sousa will also be on board and that deals for Chad Michael Murray, Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan to return are in the works.
Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” stars Hayley Atwell as Agent Carter and is executive produced by Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.
The series will air Tuesdays at 9 P.M. EST on ABC.
