Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) throw themselves deep into the 1940s era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, discussing the ABC series Agent Carter. Josh and Antonio talk at length about the show in broad strokes, plus specifics from the just wrapped second season, and their predictions about whether or not it’ll return for a third season.

Hayley Atwell stars as the titular hero Peggy Carter, first introduced in the Captain America movies, now leading the way on her own adventures as a special agent. She’s surrounded by a colorful cast of characters including mild-mannered butler Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) and her SSR colleagues Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj).

On top of everything, Josh and Antonio talk a little bit about some other Marvel shows: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the upcoming second season of Netflix’s Daredevil, and the recent casting news (and controversy) surrounding Netflix’s Iron Fist.

  • Thanks for podcasting this show. Agent Carter (the show and the character) is a breath of fresh air. There’s no other show like it on tv, so I would really love to see it come back for another season.

    I got the feeling that the redacted file is not actually about Peggy, but her brother Michael who appeared in a flashback episode this season. The closeup of the screen showed the file was about Agent M. Carter, which could stand for either Michael or Margaret (Peggy). It would explain why Peggy would think it is fake, since it refers to events she did not experience. It would also explain why they introduced her brother in that episode.

    It was clear from that episode that her love and admiration was very strong for her brother, and she seemed to idolize him, so finding out he was corrupt or did something horrible would be difficult for her to accept. And if he was framed, trying to clear his name would be a huge motivation for her to get involved. It’s also possible her brother didn’t really die and is either in hiding to protect himself from the people framing him, or he could even be the person behind Thompson’s attack! So I’m guessing that is where the show will be going if it gets a season 3.

    I disagree with almost everything about this podcast. I enjoy Agents of Shield more than Agent Carter and it’s not even close. The show couldn’t be further than monster of the week format nowadays. Yes Josh, the Winter Soldier tie-ins were great. Maybe if you didn’t stop watching you would see the Ultron tie-ins were good too, and I can’t wait to see the Civil War tie-ins.
    Nick Blood’s character Hunter is the comic relief, but not in an annoying way like Jarvis. He’s great. Really the only thing I like about Agent Carter is Hayley Atwell’s performance.
