Marvel’s Agent Carter: Series Premiere Review

The Marvel Universe, as seen in decades of comic books, is an expansive one taking place across many worlds and in many time frames, which is why it’s so fun to see the MCU now beginning to explore this aspect even further. The past few months brought the MCU into space with Guardians of the Galaxy, and now we have Marvel’s Agent Carter leading us into a very different, but still intriguing place – New York in the 1940s.

Hayley Atwell on Agent Carter Carrying on Cap’s Work

Yes, we got glimpses of this time and place in the early, NYC portions of Captain America: The First Avenger, but Marvel’s Agent Carter is much more rooted there and brings us into a post-war experience that’s become all about the spy game. As expertly played by Hayley Atwell, Peggy Carter has been established as cool, confident and capable in The First Avenger and the Marvel One-Shot that served as a pilot of sorts for this series and giving her a focused, eight-episode story is a really fun way to explore this character and her corner of the MCU further.

[REC] 4: Apocalypse Review

4: Apocalypse is the latest – and if horror movie marketing is to be believed, the last – entry in the popular Spanish horror franchise. With the previous installment offering a sort of parallel story to the first two films without series mainstay Angela (Manuela Velasco) nor one of the originating directors, Jaume Balaguero, their return in Apocalypse is welcome. Unfortunately,

4 is little more than a generic horror continuation, offering very little to the zombie/infected genre outside of a few tense moments and gory kills.

After being rescued from the quarantined apartment building of the other installments, journalist/possession victim Angela finds herself on a freighter and subject to tests. Naturally, things go awry as the crew becomes infected, paranoia settles in, and the massacre begins.

How Agent Carter Carries on Captain America’s Work

Having established the character in Captain America: The First Avenger, Hayley Atwell has become an ongoing presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peggy Carter via appearances in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and in her own Marvel One-Shot. It was that latter project, showing a bit of Peggy’s post-war life, leading up to the creation of SHIELD, that led to the new ABC TV series, Marvel’s Agent Carter. Debuting Tuesday, the eight-episode series — which will begin with two back-to-back episodes — follows Peggy as an SSR agent, who becomes involved in a conspiracy involving plans stolen from her friend Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper).

With Peggy getting the spotlight in a big way, I spoke to Atwell about what to expect from the series – including Peggy’s struggles in a male-dominated 1940s workplace, her partnership with Howard’s butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy), and Peggy’s continuing and evolving role in the MCU.
