Of course I was excited to see Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when it premiered last fall, and was thrilled when it took a hard turn after Captain America: The Winter Soldier – WOW! I really can’t wait to see what Season 2 will hold. But I have to admit, it’s Marvel’s Agent Carter that I’m most excited about; it looks like it will be totally up my street. I love the time setting and Peggy Carter’s character; that Marvel One-Shot was excellent.
So although I’m disappointed that we have to wait until winter to see the new series, we have two pieces of good news about it. One, Edwin Jarvis will be a character in the show (you may recognize the last name once you imagine Robert Downey Jr. saying it when talking to his — whatever Jarvis is), and two, we’ll be seeing Agent Carter in the season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as now-Director Coulson looks to the past to figure out how to get S.H.I.E.L.D back on the right path.

By the way, here’s a look at the co-stars that will be joining Agent Carter’s new hire:
