If You Had Lost Dat Cap Ass, You'd Be Immersed In Work Too: Marvel One Shot: "Agent Carter" Clip

By Jodi Clager | Trailers | July 23, 2013 | Comments ()

Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) didn’t just curl up into a ball after losing Steve Rogers to the icy embrace of assumed death. She kept working for the organization that would later become S.H.I.E.L.D., though her chauvinist boss has her in the office and out of the field. Agent Carter takes business into her own hands when an anonymous tip comes in concerning the infamous Zodiac killer an item called the Zodiac.


(CinemaBlend)

The clip is short, but gives you enough to see that Agent Carter hasn’t given up on smashing through the glass ceiling and into a male-dominated field. It’s nice to see her in clothing that covers her body while kicking the everloving sh*t out of two idiots. You can see the “Agent Carter” One Shot on the Iron Man 3 Blur-ray/DVD release, out September 24.

Peggy Carter is a strong woman to lose Cap and keep going. I would curl up in his sock drawer and sleep for days, dreaming about this:

    Haley Atwell would be a fantastic next Doctor. But I'd settle for more Agent Carter all the time.

  • kinoumenthe

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Peggy Carter is young Edie Bannister… Aaand… yama-arashi !
    (Don't mind me, I'm just going on a tangent here.)

  • Fredo

    Agent Carter > Black Widow

  • Is it too late to add Hayley Atwell to the Pajiba Ten? Yes? Next year, then.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Especially hard for to carry on considering how unnecessarily he left her. One of my favorite HISHE videos - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

  • Maguita NYC

    Another great candidate for Wonder Woman.

  • foolsage

    She's lovely and talented, but she's also 5'7". Wonder Woman is an Amazon, and there's an adjective in English (amazonian) that leads us to expect Amazons to be tall.

  • Maguita NYC

    Because Hollywood. Tom Cruise played Lestat and Jack Reacher... Not that we agreed with any of his choices, but if he can play a 6'5 220 pound blond, why not let an average-height woman take on the role of an Amazon.

    As long as she does a great job, I'm all in.

  • NateMan

    And hell, if we can believe 6'2" Hugh Jackman as the 5'3" tall Wolverine, and the 5'9" RDJ as the as the 6'1" Tony Stark, it would probably work.

  • foolsage

    I hear you, but I don't think most Americans had any sense how tall Lestat or Jack Reacher were supposed to be. Hells, I've read the books and I honestly don't remember anything about how tall Lestat is supposed to be.

    Wonder Woman has two problems in this regard. First, she's a comic book character, which means everyone who's familiar with her is also accustomed to seeing her. We KNOW that she's tall. Second, there's that whole Amazon thing, which is a synonym for "tall strong woman".

    According to the comics, Supes is 6'3", Bats is 6'2", and Diana is 6'. I think they really ought to try to find someone at least 5'9" for the role.

  • Maguita NYC

    Reacher was 6'5, Nordic looking and all muscle, Lestat was 6 feet, skinny, blonde almost white hair and a very luscious mouth. None of them looked like Tom Cruise. Not in the least. There are books that just make an indelible impression on you, simply because you hit puberty when first reading them.

    Based on your response to BoblioGlow however, not many actresses with serious acting skills can take on faithfully the role of Wonder Woman. We will always find something wrong with them.

  • BlackRabbit

    Are you implying Cruise's mouth isn't luscious?

  • Maguita NYC

    ... Are you implying that it is?!

  • foolsage

    Yeah, I'd heard that Reacher was terribly miscast. I enjoyed the Lestat books but they didn't make an indelible impression on me at all.

    And yes, it's a problem finding very tall, physically fit, attractive women who are skilled actors. Yvonne Strahovski is 5'9" though; she'd fit my requirements for the role. Well, with a dye job or a wig.

  • Maguita NYC

    He was my first vampire.

    You always remember your first...

  • foolsage

    Ah, nostalgia. :)

    Long before I read any Anne Rice, I was an oldschool Universal monsters fan. My first vampire was Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula.

  • BiblioGlow

    Gina Torres for Wonder Woman! (Zoe on Firefly)
    http://lady-banner.tumblr.com/...

  • foolsage

    Gina is 5'10". Her skin is a bit dark for the Greek ideal but she's a great actress and definitely has the physicality to pull off the role.

  • foolsage

    To be clear; I'm not opposed to Gina Torres as Wonder Woman. I think she'd be great in the role. Just because comics have portrayed Diana with lighter skin doesn't mean Gina doesn't still work.

  • Maguita NYC

    That one too looks good!

  • NateMan

    Too skinny, IMO, but a great actress for the role certainly.

  • Maguita NYC

    My first choice was Gina Carno but she's looking into becoming Avengelyne. Hayley Atwell could put on a few muscle pounds for the role, and she sure looks good kicking ass doesn't she.

  • foolsage

    Gina Carano certainly would make Diana the asskicker she's supposed to be.

    http://static.comicvine.com/up...

  • NateMan

    No argument there! Part of the reason I like Gina Carano (and Lucy Lawless before her, for that matter) is that they look like the size is natural on them, rather than muscle they put on for a role. It's totally a personal taste thing, of course, and a few really small women can still pull off the appearance of ass-kicking thanks to their grace (Helllooooo Summer Glau!).

  • Maguita NYC

    Definitely agree on muscle mass and a more natural shape for super heroines . But some actresses had impressed us with their ass-kicking abilities even if they look a bit on the frail side: Lucy Liu, Mila Jojovitch, and of course the woman with ovaries of brass, Michelle Rodriguez .

  • NateMan

    You make me laugh lustily, thanks for that!

    Mila Jojovitch? Exactly which one of us is high right now?

  • Maguita NYC

    I never said I wasn't.

    Wait, what do you consider frail?

  • NateMan

    Perfect size for zombie fighting, though. She turns sideways and they can't see her any more. Also, she's got a real propensity for showing her boobies, and that's something I really prize in my ass-kicking women.

  • Maguita NYC

    I thought one of the reasons zombies attacked is because they smelled you?

    So not only you want her to show her boobs, be skinny (AND HAVE BOOBS), but you also want her to bathe in smelly rotting flesh?

    You bastard!

  • NateMan

    Huh? I figured she could just sneak away. Also, I never said they had to be BIG boobs. I'm happy with boobs in general. Big soft boobs, little firm boobs, pointy nipples atop two little peach-shaped mounds of squishy boobness... It's all good. I'm non-discriminatory when it comes to boobs.

    Hehe... Boobs.

  • Green Lantern

    Bewbz.

  • Maguita NYC

    You perverted dumbass... Or all-inclusive pervert. Whichever.

    So does that mean you like all-natural hanging-down-to-her-knees meemaw boobs?

  • NateMan

    Well, that's going a bit far. But grannies need lovin' too. I prefer all-inclusive pervert.

  • AnnaKendrick'sLoveMuffin

    The Zodiac Killer operated in Northern California in the 60s and 70s. Not in Brooklyn in the late 40s. This is obviously a commie agent code-named Zodiac.

    Ah. The joys of pendanticry...pendanticness? Pendantomy? Well, I'm sure someone will correct me.

  • foolsage

    * coughs * Pedantry.

  • AnnaKendrick'sLoveMuffin

    Sounds like something the vice squad investigates...

  • foolsage

    More like something the vice squad embodies. ;)

  • Pinky McLadybits

    I fixed it!

  • Daniel Valentin

    Zodiac is a criminal organization in the Marvel Universe composed of criminals who use the Zodiac signs as their criminal identities. Scorpio, one of the members and eventual leader of the team, is Jack Fury, Nick Fury's brother.

  • Mrcreosote

    You know what would be a nice meta twist? For a villian NOT to be related/betrothed/lifelong friends with the hero. I understand that it allows for a lot of cheap pathos (or Artemis?) but it's so, so tiring. Really everyone involved with a multinational plot is familiar with everyone else? Come one people, this is a movie, not an Appalachian gene pool or the NFL! Expand your horizions!
    Also Jack Fury would be one hell of a drag queen/king name.

  • That short is going to be awesome.

    I still love the fact that the chest touch wasn't planned. She was eating the eye candy something fierce. And so was the blonde in the middle background there, hello!

  • NateMan

    Yeah I think it was all the nurse could do not to lick her lips, too funny.

  • NateMan

    Even I'd hit that. Although I'd prefer Agent Carter. Or a MFM. That works too.

    Wow. back pain meds make me even more inappropriate than normal. Nice.
