Making a liar out of me, ABC did report renewals and release synopses of its new series for the 2014-2015 season. If your show’s not on the list, don’t freak out; it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s canceled yet. They’ll announce their full schedule next week. The headline is for Marvel fans: Agents of SHIELD will return for a second season and the long-anticipated series starring Hayley Atwell’s (Captain America) Agent Carter will be Marvel’s second series on the network.
It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life � Steve Rogers.

Deadline is reporting that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD isn’t going to be the only Marvel show on TV for long. There had been rumors of Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter getting her own series showcasing the early days of SHIELD (which I honestly can’t say I’m that stoked about), but there’s a lot more than that going on:
“Marvel is quietly putting together a package of four drama series and a miniseries — a total of some 60 episodes — that would be taken out to the VOD and cable space, with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America rumored as potential candidates. Feelers had been send out, and I hear there’s already interest from digital platforms and traditional cable networks in the package, which I hear is in very early stages with very little talent attached.”
What series would work? What characters do you think would be best served by a series rather than a cinematic treatment? Five shows and the movies….the MCU is going to get as complex as the regular Marvel Universe soon.
Marvel Entertainment has released the teaser poster for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It’s simple and telling. The shield is battered and largely stripped of its patriotic colors. Steve is going to face the battle of his life in coming to terms with what happened to his best friend, the threat the Winter Soldier poses and the gray modern world so different from the one he knew. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens on April 4, 2014. Official synopsis below:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier will pick-up where Marvel’s The Avengers left off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world and teams up with Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy in present-day Washington, D.C.
