Marvel reportedly has plans to pursue a series based on a Marvel One-Shot project that is being featured as an extra on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray titled Agent Carter.
Directed by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito, the short film centers on Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). The project tells the story of what happened to Peggy Carter after Captain America disappeared during WWII.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. followed the same process in it's journey to the small screen. The story was hinted in the Marvel One-Shot: Item 47, which led to the fruition of the series. That short was featured on the Marvel's The Avengers DVD. The series' Pilot is set to premiere on Tuesday, September 24th on ABC.
No writer or director have been announced and it is currently unknown if Hayley Atwell would reprise her role as Peggy Carter. Nothing has been confirmed by the studio, so stay tuned for more information.
