Marvel considering Agent Peggy Carter TV series?

S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Peggy Carter could be coming to television with her own TV series...

For those frustrated at the lack of female-led comic book movies during the current glut, television may provide some solace. In much the same way that Item 47 heralded the arrival of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Peggy Carter one-shot from the Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray (already out here in the UK, but coming to the US on the 24th of September) could presage a forthcoming TV series for the 1940s Marvel character.

The report comes from Deadline, who suggest that Marvel is developing a concept for an Agent Peggy Carter TV show following the character's travails as part of the newly formed S.H.I.E.L.D. in the forties. It's all rumour at present of course and very much in the zygotic stages even if it should prove to be more than just scuttlebutt.

With the Wonder Woman prequel Amazon currently on pause, there's certainly a gap in the market for a female-led action series. An Agent Carter Marvel spin-off could be just the ticket, especially if Hayley Atwell can be persuaded to continue in the role...
