Marvel’s Agent Carter won’t be added to ABC’s lineup until January 2015, however Marvel’s just unveiled a two minute clip from the series so comic book fans will know what to expect. The new clip shows Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) asking Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) for help. He even introduces her to his butler, Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who will be offering her his assistance – but not after 9pm.
The cast of the series also includes Chad Michael Murray as Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as Agent Daniel Sousa, and Shea Whigham as Chief Roger Dooley.
And for those who missed it, here’s the official synopsis for Marvel’s Agent Carter:
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter, who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.
When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.
If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.
