ABC unveiled an extended look at its second Marvel series this evening during a television special recounting the history of Marvel, and now the lengthy Agent Carter clip has been released online for those that missed it. The bulk of the footage consists of a clip in which Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter discusses a secret mission with Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), after which she engages with Stark’s butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy), who serves as the basis for Tony Stark’s computer system in the modern day MCU. The direction and blocking in the clip is oddly stilted and more than a little cheesy, but I’m intrigued by the show’s promise of exploring gender politics in the post-World War II workplace. Moreover, the final sequence in the clip showcases some solid action from Atwell’s character.
Take a look at the extended Agent Carter clip for yourself after the jump. The show also stars Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokai, and Shea Whigham. Agent Carter will air on ABC Tuesdays starting in January 2015.
