Hayley Atwell Talks Agent Carter Season 2

Hayley Atwell spoke in-depth to excited fans at the Showmasters London Film & Comic Con 2015 sharing news about the much anticipated second season of Marvel TV series Agent Carter.

Beautiful star Atwell confirmed that the new season will see the show relocate to Los Angeles as Howard Stark opens a film studio and Jarvis struggles to adapt to life in the glamorous Hollywood setting, much to Peggy’s amusement. Hayley admitted she also very much enjoyed recent chemistry casting sessions for a new love interest for Peggy. Aside from lots more ‘snogging’ Hayley confirmed that the show will continue to explore other elements of Peggy’s backstory and likely at some point address the founding of SHIELD and her having a family. In great news for fans of the show Hayley confirmed that she hopes that the series will keep running long enough to allow her to explore Peggy’s journey into the 1960s and 1970s as well.

Speaking in the wake of recent debate about how Marvel has handled it’s female heroes Hayley also shared her impassioned views on issues like feminism in comic books and the LGBT subtext some fans have read into the series with the Cartinelli pairing.

On a lighter note Hayley explained the origins of her ongoing hilarious Dubsmash war with the cast of Agents of SHIELD and some of the pranks that make life working for Marvel such a  treat.
