Agent Carter Comes To S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2

September 9th, 2014 by Dave Bowling Comments

Peggy Carter is coming to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D!

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Hayley Atwell is set to appear in the season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Atwell first appeared as the SSR agent and Captain America’s love interest in The First Avenger, before making a brief cameo again in The Winter Soldier in heavy old lady makeup. Details on Atwell’s appearance are currently under wraps. It’s unclear whether she’ll appear in flashback or if she’ll again be made up to look 60 years older.

Her appearance on the series is likely a sort of backdoor pilot towards Agent Carter, which follows Peggy in the post-War world after Cap’s disappearance. Atwell joins previously announced guest stars Lucy Lawless, Reed Diamond, Nick Blood and Patrick Wade, among others.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on 23 September. Agent Carter will debut later this year.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
