After two seasons, ABC canned Agent Carter earlier this year, transferring its star Hayley Atwell to a bland legal procedural (ask them how that’s going ratings-wise….) But today we found out Peggy is coming back! Just not in the form we’re familiar with.
During the Marvel Animation panel at NYCC, Steven Wacker announced Agent Carter will appear in animated form on an upcoming episode of Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars. In the episode, Iron Man and Captain America team up with an out-of-time Howard Stark and the intrepid Ms. Carter in an effort to stop the plans of Kang the Conqueror. Atwell will be providing the voice of Carter — she has stated publicly that she’s open to reprising the role in any form. (She’d like an Agent Carter movie, and so would I.)
Oh yeah….Avengers: Secret Wars is the title Disney XD’s Avengers cartoon is going with for its fourth season. There’ll be some cast changes, with the Jane Foster version of Thor and Ms. Marvel joining the crew. Plus, for one episode, Agent Carter!
