And the Fangirls Rejoiced: New Pictures of Peggy Carter

Everyday I think I couldn’t possibly be more excited about Marvel’s Agent Carter and every day I am proven wrong. Not only is the ever adorable Hayley Atwell galavanting her way around LA tweeting up a storm about the show’s preparations but we now know that Peggy Carter will make an appearance in the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season. We even have photographic proof!

Let’s see what the fangirls are saying – I’d start with my own reaction but I couldn’t get a coherent quote. Every time I see something new about Marvel’s Agent Carter I just make a loud squeaking noise followed by a kind of interpretive dance. I’m REALLY excited about this show okay, and I am not alone.

  1. I can’t wait for Agent Carter. I hope it becomes a huge success and I hope it makes the studio’s realize that having a female lead isn’t the kiss of death and also isn’t just something limited to teenage YA books that get a movie adaption. I hope it gets followed by a Black Widow movie.
