Agent Carter

Alongside a young Howard Stark, Hayley Atwell’s character Peggy Carter is becoming synonymous with the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D., at least in Marvel’s movies and TV series. After first appearing as Captain America’s girlfriend in Cap’s first film, she has appeared as an old woman in the sequel, garnered her own short film Agent Carter, and now has an Agent Carter TV series airing this January based on the prior short. She even cameos in the first episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s second season, as well as a flashback in Avengers: Age of Ultron. So where is she showing up next? Supposedly Ant-Man, which raises a few questions. Read more…

Marvel Confirms Iron Man’s Father Will Appear On Agent Carter

Howard Stark

When James D’Arcy was cast as Edwin Jarvis, the butler of Howard Stark (and inspiration for Iron Man’s AI), in Marvel’s Agent Carter, many wondered if that meant we would see Howard Stark (Iron Man’s father) in the upcoming TV series. While John Slattery portrayed an older, Walt Disney-like version of Howard in Iron Man 2, Agent Carter’s post-WWII setting meant asking Dominic Cooper to play the younger version, as he did in Captain America: The First Avenger. With Dominic Cooper mainly sticking to films, it was uncertain whether he would work on a TV show. But Marvel has confirmed that Cooper will return and portray Howard in Agent Carter, so no worries! Cooper is great in the role, taking inspiration from the portrayal of his son Tony Stark, so I’m happy to see him still involved with the setting. Read more…

James D'Arcy

It’s pretty cool that Marvel will be airing Agent Carter in-between the two halves of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season two. Many have wondered if Dominic Cooper would return to play Howard Stark (Iron Man’s father), since he played the role in Captain America: The First Avenger and subsequently cameoed in the Marvel One Shot Agent Carter that inspired this series. While the jury is still out on that, considering he’s a movie star, but it seems that he will have a butler: Edwin Jarvis, to be played by James D’Arcy. In the original comics, Jarvis was Tony Stark’s butler, but since the Iron Man in the movies has the AI J.A.R.V.I.S. as a butler, it’s clear that this is the original Jarvis who now works for Howard. Still though, it would be strange to have Howard Stark’s butler in the show, but not have Howard Stark appear… Read more…
