The first full clip has emerged from the new ABC Marvel TV show Agent Carter, based on Hayley Atwell’s snippy British secret agent, first seen in Captain America: The First Avenger. And it also stars Dominic Cooper as Tony Stark’s father Howard, a man with similar tastes in gadgetry, facial hair and what would probably have been called ‘the broads’ as his son.
And yes, it’s all very Fleming, isn’t it?
And look, there’s James D’Arcy (soon to be seen in season two of Broadchurch) playing the Starks’ butler, Edwin Jarvis. It’s a veritable World War II Brit-off.
Agent Carter airs on ABC in January 2015.
