“Avengers: Age of Ultron” may just be the most anticipated movie in the country, but it’s not coming out until May 2015. Until then, the only place to check out the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on ABC. And when “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” takes its mid-season break in January 2015, it’ll be all about “Agent Carter.”
The first teaser proudly touts that “sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.” Marvel took a little heat after DC beat them to the punch with a female-lead superhero film in announcing “Wonder Woman.” Marvel countered that by announcing “Captain Marvel” as part of their “Phase 3” reveal.
With the war over and Captain America on ice (until the Avengers thaw him out in the present era), Carter settles into office work, while maintaining a more exciting side gig with Stark. At least, that’s where things start with her.
As the teaser makes very clear, the excitement level in her life is about to rise considerably. Good thing she’s trained as an elite government agent.
The eight-part “Marvel’s Agent Carter” premieres in January 2015 on ABC and will air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET.
