During a roundtable interview at Comic-Con with Agent Carter producers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, our reporter Rachel Howard learned that a very special character will be featured on the period television show.  Since the screenwriters have had such a good time planting Easter eggs and messing with time-travel tropes in their Captain America features, they said that fans could expect more of the same in the show, which takes place in 1946 and finds Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter marginalized while working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) when the men return home from WWII.  Joining Carter on screen will be none other than Edwin Jarvis, a name comic book fans should know quite well.  Hit the jump for more.

Question: Given how successful Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been with its integration with the Marvel movies, what are you guys going to do on that level?

Stephen McFeely: What’s great is that we have the same bonus with Cap one, that we could do anything we want because we don’t have to tie into anything because we come before everything. Then we forced them to tie into us.

Christopher Markus: We’ll certainly have Easter eggs and even more than that. I think I can say, one of the characters will be Edwin Jarvis, who is Howard Stark’s manservant, who goes on to be a tutor to Tony, and therefore is the inspiration for the AI voice and all that. So it’s that kind of interconnectedness that should make peoples ears go … that’s the kind of reaction I want. That’s right.

The reporters were certainly excited to hear that news and I’d imagine Marvel fans will be happy to see him in the flesh, even if it is on the small screen.
