‘Marvel Agent Carter’ EP Mum on Crossovers, Stars Call Peggy ‘A True Feminist’

TCA 2015: Jeph Loeb stays tight-lipped about the new ABC show

The “Marvel Agent Carter” Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour panel on Wednesday afternoon raised quite a few questions, but executive producer Jeph Loeb refused to spill any secrets or spoilers about ABC’s newest comic book adaptation.

Loeb specifically wouldn’t comment on potential crossovers between ABC’s other Marvel show, “Agents of SHIELD” and “Carter.” Nor would he give anything away on a possible crossover with the upcoming “Avengers” film.

All Loeb would say on the former is, “It’s all connected.”

One thing that was revealed on-stage was by star Hayley Atwell, who is reprising her role from the “Captain America” movies. Atwell told the room of reporters that she was drawn to the relationship that her titular character Agent Peggy Carter and Lyndsy Fonseca’s Angie Martinelli share.

“It’s so refreshing to see two women on screen who are supporting each other, and who genuinely are friends and who are not competing, there isn’t that tension,” Atwell said. “I don’t really know much television that really shows that support between women.”

“So it’s not just that Agent Carter is going out and fighting against the men — she’s supporting the women around her,” Atwell continued. “She doesn’t dislike women.”

“She’s a true feminist,” Fonseca interjected, and Atwell agreed.

On Tuesday night, “Agent Carter” slipped 21 percent from its series debut, pulling in a 1.5 Nielsen rating in the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic.
