Marvel has released a lengthy new synopsis for Agent Carter, the Hayley Atwell-starring spin-off from the Captain America series.
The new synopsis reveals a boat-load of new plot details, outlining the challengers facing Peggy Carter, as well as the alliances she forms with both Howard Stark and his butler, Jarvis…
“It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad,” reads the official blurb.
“Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.”
“When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name.”
“He empowers his butler, Edwin, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.”
“If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.”
Co-starring Dominic Cooper and James D’Arcy as Stark and Jarvis respectively, Agent Carter is expected to air in 2015, with a specific date yet to be confirmed.
