Along with all the hubbub surrounding Marvel’s, from all accounts, spectacular panel, the studio also brought along Peggy Carter herself, Hayley Atwell to premiere a new one-shot short film called “Agent Carter” that will be included in the upcoming “Iron Man 3” DVD/Blu-ray release. From the sounds of it, the premiere was a smash, and here’s a clip from “Agent Carter”.
The short was directed by Marvel’s co-president Louis D’Esposito. Yes, the co-president of the company also directs the company’s short films. And you wonder why Marvel is so good about their movies and characters.
Picking up where the events of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER left off, “Agent Carter” tracks British operative Peggy Carter (THE FIRST AVENGER’s Hayley Atwell) as she joins the nascent S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. As she searches for the enigmatic “Zodiac” key, Agent Carter also battles her sexist, bureaucratic boss, Agent Flynn (THE WEST WING’s Bradley Whitford), who thinks women have no place in the secret-agent business.
Besides Atwell, “Agent Carter” co-stars Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Iron Man’s dad, and will be available with “Iron Man 3”, debuting on HD Digital and HD Digital 3D September 3, 2013, and on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy and On Demand September 24, 2013.
