ABC has given the go ahead to “Agent Carter” – a spin-off of “Captain America: The First Avenger” that will give us the origin story of the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization (before it’s destroyed in Captain America: The Winter Solder or rebuilt in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. of course).
Hayley Atwell will star reprising her role as Peggy Carter and Dominic Cooper will return to play Howard Stark, father of Tony Stark aka Iron Man. It has already been established in Marvel’s movies that Peggy and Howard were among the founding members of S.H.I.E.L.D..
‘Agent Carter’ is so far only scheduled for eight episodes.
