As I mentioned earlier today, I think the original Thor film is the weakest movie in the Avengers franchise. And while Iron Man has a clear advantage, there’s really only one reason Captain America edged past Thor.That would be the lovely, the talented, the devastatingly gorgeous Haley Atwell as Agent Carter. Chris Evans is fine. Chris Evans is great. But in Agent Carter we got a female counterpart that, in my mind, put Pepper Potts and Jane Foster to shame.
So the first bit of great news is that folks who purchase the upcoming Iron Man 3 Blu-ray will be treated to an Agent Carter short film co-starring Atwell, Bradley Whitford and Dominic Cooper. Or, you know, if you’re so inclined, you can see it here.
But the even better news is that Marvel Studios is considering creating a TV series based around Agent Carter. I imagine the likelihood of that series will depend entirely on the success of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But any chance at more Atwell is fine by me. She’s simply the best. She’ll appear (to break our hearts) in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Let’s hope that’s not the last we see of her.
