Superhero's Girlfriend Is Focus of New TV Project From Marvel Deadline
While Marvel is known for its secrecy about development plans, the company is reportedly working on a concept for a television series inspired by the short film "Agent Carter," Nellie Andreeva reports at Deadline.com.
The short, which will be included on the Blu-ray release of "Iron Man 3," was directed by Marvel Studios co-President Louis D'Esposito, and stars Hayley Atwell as Captain America's girlfriend, Peggy Carter.
The film looks at her life as a secret agent after her superhero boyfriend is frozen in ice.
"I hear the project is in very early stages, one of several in the works at Marvel, and is in the process of locking in a writer. It is unclear if Atwell would reprise her role if 'Agent Carter' comes to fruition," Andreeva writes.
The project could become a series for ABC, which would fit into the network's schedule of female-skewing dramas, the story notes.
Here's a little bit of Agent Carter in action, from the Blu-ray, which comes out Sept. 24:
