CBTVB: Hayley Atwell Discusses What to Expect from Agent Carter

By Muuka Muyumba

Hayley Atwell, who plays Peggy Carter, spoke at Comic-Con about what we could see from her in Agent Carter, which is scheduled to start filming in September. Atwell said she must first start with herself, “I got ten weeks in which to kind of transform my body into a machine so that I can, if anything, deal with the just sheer stamina of what it’s gonna be like to film the series.”

When asked where the program will pick up, Atwell said that the show start in 1946 after she’s lost Captain America, “..but she’s working with a group of men who don’t really see her full potential, and she’s seen as this kind of girlfriend of Steve Rogers.”

Atwell acknowledged that much of the show will have to do with Peggy navigating her way through the social politics of the time. She must weather coming back from a world where she was integral to the Allied struggle into a man’s world where she is marginalized. This sentiment suggests that Agent Carter may be a bit more of a character study than a procedural like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agent Carter is slated to premiere in January on ABCAgent_Carter_Official_Logo.
