Back in May, we reported that Season 2 of Marvel's Agent Carter will bring Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to Los Angeles for a brand new mission. While we wait to learn more about the new season during the show's Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 10, Entertainment Weekly has debuted the new Agent Carter Comic Con poster, which fans will be able to pick up at the Marvel booth (#2329) from Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12. The poster features both Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter and her partner Edwin Jarvis (James D'Arcy), with the old Hollywoodland sign seen in the background.
"There's a case that goes beyond what the LAPD or normal local police would be able to handle that falls into their purview. 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."
"It's a great place for us location wise, so you can see so many different parts of glamour and grit."
Peggy and Jarvis will be joined by Agent Sousa (Enver Gjokaj), with the executive producers revealing that deals are being worked out for Chad Michael Murray (Agent Jack Thompson), Lyndsy Fonseca (Angie Martinelli) and Bridget Regan (Dottie Underwood). Michele Fazekas added that the writers found an "organic way" to bring Jarvis into this season.
"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."
The producer added, though, that, unlike the first season, Jarvis will not be keeping an eye on Peggy at the behest of Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), even though he isn't a big fan of L.A.
"She's not working for Howard in this regard. The nice thing about Peggy this season is she's not having to hide her agenda from the SSR. [Jarvis] is helping her out, just in a different way. He hates California. He hates palm trees. He does not stop wearing a wool suit."
Season 2 will be comprised of 10 episodes, an upgrade from the eight-episode first season. The Marvel show will fill in for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. during its midseason hiatus, although ABC hasn't issued an official premiere date yet. While we wait for more details to unfold, check out the new Marvel's Agent Carter poster.
