Hayley Atwell stars in first images and poster from Agent Carter one-shot

Peggy gets her own spin-off

Marvel one-shot Agent Carter has released a first couple of images alongside a first official poster, as Hayley Atwell reprises her role as Agent Peggy Carter.

The short film will apparently serve to link the events of Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Peggy on the trail of mysterious villain, Zodiac.

Dominic Cooper will also be on hand to reprise his role as Howard Stark (Tony's father), while other familiar faces are also set to make a return. Not that Marvel is telling who just yet...

The new images aren't terribly revelatory, simply showing Atwell back in costume alongside Bradley Whitford as her boss, Flynn. However, the first poster is brilliant, a pleasingly retro take on the classic pulp novel.

Agent Carter will be screened for the first time at Comic-Con later this month, before popping up as an extra of the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray...

      How could this short, set 60 years ago, link two films in the present? Colour me intrigued. Also, I'm very interested to find out how long this 'short' is.

      All I'm saying Matt is Peggy Carter, Mother, past - Sharon Carter, daughter, present

      I get that, but that's just a character link, AND it only links the short with Captain America (which it doesn't need to). This article says that this short will "link the events of Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Peggy on the trail of mysterious villain, Zodiac." - How does that work? Aside from having Stark Sr (a tenuous link), how can this short link those two movies together?

      I'm a real fan of these one-shots. wonder if we'll eventually get a DVD collection when there's enough of them.

      You know it's a pitty Hayley is stuck with Carter cause she's got the looks to be a top female comic book hero.
