Movies based on Comic Books are all the rage, infiltrating the small screen with multiple shows of varying levels of success. Even ‘event stories’ from Comics have made their way into films with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe where multiple movies with solo heroes culminate into one team up film combining all the individual stories. And soon, another comic universe concept will become part of the film and TV universes: the tie in book.
Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ will supposedly be a prequel story set after the events of ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ focusing on the character of Peggy Carter from the same movie, and will tell the story of the founding of S.H.I.E.L.D. and her contribution to it. But I suspect there will be more at play than just that, especially given that S.H.I.E.L.D. no longer even exists in the MCU. So it’s strange that Marvel would put out a prequel in the middle of the mid season break of an existing show such as ‘Agents Of SHIELD’, if it didn’t somehow connect or ‘tie in’ (see what I did there) to what more is to come in the MCU. Given that, here are some theories and thoughts of what ‘Agent Carter’ may be about and where it could lead.
