It’s official – our first look at new Marvel TV show Agent Carter is finally here… along with a completely unnecessary and largely offensive tag line!
“Sometimes, the best man for the job… is a woman.” And so, decades of feminism is seemingly flushed down the pan at a time when Marvel Studios should be basking in the glory of a Captain Marvel movie making its way to the big screen.
But despite the cringe worthy tag line, will Agent Carter be any good?
Chadwick Boseman Is Black Panther
So far, we’ve seen very little of the upcoming 8-part series… and this very brief trailer doesn’t exactly shed much light on the show.
Giving us a sexy glimpse at Peggy Carter suiting up (complete with garter and pistol) and then a brief but glamorous saunter through a crowded room, that’s about all we see of her.
That is, apart from her signature pistol shot towards the camera.
Still, it’s clear from the visuals that we’ll be treated to some rather awesome 1940’s action as we finally get to see Agent Carter doing what she does best. But I can’t help thinking that the slightly sexist overtones might detract from the fact that Marvel is bringing another powerful female character to our screens.

It’s certainly great to see Hayley Atwell back in the role… and I can’t wait to see more from Agent Carter. But as far as this brief teaser goes, it seems like a bit of a misfire.
