Marvel Plans An "Agent Carter" Series

Marvel Studios is reportedly in the early stages of preparation on a TV series based around the "Captain America" character Agent Carter.

The recent Marvel one-shot film "Agent Carter," which appears on next week's DVD & Blu-ray release of "Iron Man 3," continues the story of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) from 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger". In the short, she builds her career as a secret agent a year after Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) disappeared under the ice.

No deals are currently in place, but the move isn't a big stretch. The upcoming "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." series was partly based on the one-shot short "Item 47" which appeared on the DVD and Blu-ray release of "The Avengers".

It's presently unclear if Atwell will reprise her role should the project officially move forward, or if other actors from either the short or film like Dominic Cooper, Bradley Whitford or Neal McDonough will reprise their roles. No network is currently attached either.
