In more Marvel Television News, update on Agent Carter casting.
When Hayley Atwell reprises her role as Peggy Carter in the hotly-anticipated “Marvel’s Agent Carter” series debuting on ABC in 2015, she won’t embark on her new adventures alone!
Marvel is proud to announce the signing of two key series regulars, as Chad Michael Murray (“Fruitvale Station,” “One Tree Hill”) has been cast in the role of SSR Agent Jack Thompson, while Enver Gjokaj (“Dollhouse”) will portray Agent Daniel Sousa, both of whom will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the SSR in New York City.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring “Captain America’s” Hayley Atwell, follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”
Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Executive producers are Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television.
