“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have revealed some new details about the hour-long drama series “Agent Carter” based on Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter character from the first “Captain America” film.
The pair confirm the pilot script has been written and Atwell is interested in returning as Peggy Carter. Dominic Cooper is also expected to have a recurring role as Tony Stark’s father Howard Stark.
The series will be set in the year 1946, the same timeline as seen in the “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter” short film. Markus says “If you cut the One-Shot directly right down the middle, and you don’t get to the next morning, you’ve got a whole show in there.”
At present the pilot still does not have a green light yet, though ABC and Disney are said to be happy with the script. If it is to go forward, the show would be a limited series – running for thirteen episodes or less each season.
