ABC has restored my faith in great television, and renewed their super hero tie-in show, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. This news also comes on the heels of another ABC announcement, with Marvel’s Agent Carter being announced as a new show coming soon to to the network.
Agent Carter will follow Peggy Carter, from ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, and one of the founders of SHIELD, as she learns to navigate the world after WWII and the supposed death of her boyfriend, Captain America in 1946. Peggy has to balance working for the top-secret Strategic Scientific Reserve, where she is a spy for Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark, and attempting to live a somewhat normal life in 1940’s America.
With Agents of Shield being renewed and Agent Carter coming soon, Marvel is aggressively dominating their meager competition in DC Comics. DC needs to step up with more than just ‘Arrow’ on the CW, if they are going to be able to keep up with the juggernaut (pun intended) that is Marvel.
Are you excited for another season of Agents of Shield? How do you feel about the Captain America spinoff, Agent Carter? Let me know in the comments below.
