Take a look at Peggy Carter in action! TV Guide has released the first image of Hayley Atwell in character from the season 2 premiere of ABC’s “Agents of SHIELD.” In the picture we see Atwell holding a gun with other agents in what is clearly a flashback scene.
Peggy Carter is known in the comics for her role in the development of the organization we know as SHIELD. Back then, in the 1940s, it was called Strategic Scientific Reserve. The flashback makes sense when considering the season one finale of “Agents of SHIELD” saw Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) giving Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) the job of rebuilding SHIELD after its infiltration by HYDRA. With Coulson having to decide how to move forward, a look back at what Carter did could be beneficial.
In the image we see Kenneth Choi and Neal McDonough who reprise their roles from “Captain America: The First Avenger.” Choi played Jim Morita and McDonough was Dum Dum Dugan, both of whome were part of Captain America’s (Chris Evans) team in the film.
We do not know if these characters will make appearances in the upcoming “Agent Carter” series following Peggy’s adventures after WWII, but she will be joined by Enver Gjokaj, Chad Michael Murray and Dominic Cooper, who will reprise his role as Howard Stark from past Marvel films.
“Agents of SHIELD” will return for Season 2, with Atwell, on September 23rd on ABC. Take a look at the image below:
