The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a mainstay in pop culture for more than a decade. Countless movies, TV shows, and tie-ins have covered a vast amount of time and space in the epic Marvel storyline. “Marvel’s Agent Carter” was an early attempt to shine the spotlight on women in the MCU. After being introduced to the fierce Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) in “Captain America: The First Avenger,” fans had the opportunity to see the trajectory of her life following Captain America’s seeming demise.
Ultimately, the promise is that we’d eventually see the establishment of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, the series didn’t last long enough to reach that point. After only two seasons, the series was cancelled by ABC due to low viewership. Despite the closure of the overall season 2 arc, the show managed to leave an open thread as we witness an assassin steal files on Agent Carter. While we all know Peggy’s story has happy ending thanks to “Avengers: Endgame,” there’s a lot of Marvel history that we are losing not seeing her story fully fleshed out.
