Louis D’Esposito

Agent Carter

Over the weekend, Disney and Marvel Studios unveiled their latest “One-Shot” short film, Agent Carter to the audiences at Comic-Con. The response was overwhelmingly positive, as it sees the return of a favorite character from Captain America: The First Avenger: Peggy Carter, as played by Hayley Atwell. Sure, she’s lost her love Steve Rogers in the events of The First Avenger, but that won’t stop her from kicking some ass. In the first clip from the short, released today, we see this stylish dame take action where 3-5 agents would otherwise be needed. Directed by Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito, the short appears to have style and action — just the sort of thing we’d expect from a spin-off of Captain America. Get a glimpse for yourself just after the jump.

The title alone is tantalizing enough – Item 47. Just what is Item 47? And just how would the latest Marvel short (dubbed “One-Shots”) tie into the increasingly large and complex cinematic world that Marvel has crafted? We’ve known for weeks that the next One-Shot would appear as a bonus on the upcoming The Avengers home-video release (and, well, duh, of course there’s a new One-Shot, as is becoming par for the course after both Thor and Captain America got one), but the events of that film looked to have (spoiler alert?) taken the star of the previous One-Shots out of commission. Now, thanks to EW (who also debuted that first still up above), we’ve got a bevy of new information about Item 47, including plot, stars, and just what that title means. Even better? The skew of Item 47 signals Marvel’s interest in exploring the “real world” that’s currently home to all manner of superheros, and that’s the sort of interest that can expand the universe exponentially. The outlet reports that Item 47 stars Lizzy Caplan (awesome) and Jesse Bradford (also awesome) as “a down-on-their-luck couple who find one of the discarded alien guns from the finale to The Avengers — and proceed to make some incredibly bad decisions.” Really, what would you do if your city was attacked and a giant Chitauri gun fell into your hands?
