When Marvel announced the “Agent Carter” mini-series many people saw it as a bridging story of how “S.H.I.E.L.D” got started.
In “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) has a conversation with modern day Peggy Carter. He states the only reason he agreed to stay on with S.H.I.E.L.D was knowing she was one of the founders.
The mini-series as a whole was campy, with gadgets resembling ’60s James Bond films, classic car chases, gun battles and all manner of action.
Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) struggles to find her place in a post World War II society. That combined with Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) chauvinistic but likable personality and his man Jarvis (James D’Arcy) at Peggy’s side, the series is a great romp through the post war late ’40s.
But as the last episode ended no one saw the inception of the idea of S.H.I.E.L.D, which is what most people were looking forward to. What viewers did see was what the Marvel Cinematic Universe is all about, connection.
As the last episode comes to close, Peggy Carter’s co-workers come to respect her. Dr. Fenhoff, head honcho of Leviathan (the secret soviet agency responsible for the Black Widow femme fatale spy program) imprisoned with Hydra captive Dr. Zola, from the Captain America movies. Zola presumes to ask Fenhoff to write down how he uses his mind control, leading people to think this is how Zola was able to control Captain Rogers’ best friend Bucky Barnes and turn him into the Winter Soldier.
The buzz around Hollywood is that the show will be back for a second season, which many people are hoping for. Only time will tell but things look good for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as more story unfolds.
