Check out the poster and pics from Marvel's next one-shot short: Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell!

Jul. 11, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Marvel's next one-shot short is set to debut at Comic Con next week and today we have a look at the poster and some stills for AGENT CARTER, which follows the exploits of the British agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., played by the beautiful Hayley Atwell, who first graced the screen as the titular character in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. The poster is a retro, old-style comic book cover, which lends itself to the time period of the short (and of Agent Carter's era) and the stills give a peek into the old timey spy setting.

Here's the poster:

Here's the stills:

And, lastly, a synopsis:

Hayley Atwell (TVs The Pillars of the Earth) reprises her role as an analyst with the nascent S.H.I.E.L.D. organization, the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve.) They do things like, you know, build super-soldiers, fight evil, and go insearch of the enigmatic Zodiac.

Out of all the Marvel shorts, I think this is the best looking of the bunch. For one, it has a relevant character that ties into the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe and secondly, Haley Atwell. Yes, her presence is enough for me. The short will debut at Comic Con next week, but won't be available for the masses until the release of IRON MAN 3 on blu-ray/DVD on September 24, 2013.

From the author of the Johnny Gossamer pulp novels!

Atwell was wonderful in Captain America, it was really effective casting. She wasn't playing a sexpot, but she managed to be sexy in a subtle and very effective way.

Yes!

This looks awesome. I love these Marvel shorts.

Also that poster is bitchin', I wish that amount of creativity was brought to each Marvel film's poster. Years of original and creative imagery to choose from, it's always a shame when it comes to Photoshopped floating heads and crappy sparks.

Anyways, looking forward to it, love Atwell as Peggy, and admittedly also.....in a sex way.

Gadzooks! That's an awesome poster! Atwell's fantastic and a babe to boot.

Anybody read the fine print on the poster? Dominic Cooper's back, too! And Bradley Whitford's looking like Tom Arnold in that last still.

"For one, it has a relevant character that ties into the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe"
So Agent Coulson is not a relevant character? "Marvel One-Shot: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer" was filled with Coulson badassery.

Shorts

They should start doing shorts and showing them in theaters with movies ala pixar. That way they could test out certain characters or keep certain ones strictly for the shorts. You'd be more likely to get something like a Deadpool short vs. a full blown movie
