Hayley Atwell Goes to Work in New Agent Carter Photos
Following the series premiere photos from last month, ABC has released new promo images for the upcoming series Marvel's Agent Carter, featuring series star Hayley Atwell. The actress reprises her role as Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter and last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the new series, which is set in the year 1946, just after World War II. The eight-episode series kicks off with the two-hour premiere, "Now Is Not The End" and "Bridge and Tunnel" on Tuesday, January 6 at 8 PM ET on ABC.
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 (Dominic Cooper) 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.
Howard empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling 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. Check out the new photos from Marvel's Agent Carter before the series debuts next week.
