‘Agent Carter,’ the upcoming spinoff of the ‘Captain America’ franchise, has begun to round out its cast. The drama, starring Hayley Atwell, will be following Agent Carter (Atwell) in the years after the events of ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ as she works as a secret agent while the Captain is frozen.
Joining Atwell will be Chad Michael Murray (‘One Tree Hill’) and Enver Gjokaj (‘Dollhouse’) in series regular roles. Murray has signed on as Agent Jack Thompson and Gjokaj as Agent Daniel Sousa. The pair meet Carter in New York City at the pre-SHIELD Strategic Scientific Reserve where she starts her new work post-war.
A premiere date for ‘Agent Carter’ has not been set, but it will be airing in the time slot formerly held by ‘Agents of SHIELD,’ Tuesday nights at 9pm while the Marvel show is on winter hiatus.
