New Agent Carter Comic Con Poster, Plus Details on the Season Two Location Change
Agent Carter is coming to Comic Con next week, and now EW has an advance look at the limited edition season two poster that will be available for free at Marvel's booth from Thursday through Sunday, at least until they run out: 

New Agent Carter Comic Con Poster, Plus Details on Season Two Location Change

The setting and the aesthetic both emphasize the soft reboot Agent Carter will be undergoing this season, as it will be changing both its location and its tone. It will be very much a Hollywood show now, with all the neo-noir trappings that entails. Think Agent Carter meets LA Confidential.

Opening quote
"It's a great place for us location wise, so you can see so many different parts of glamor and grit," said showrunner Michele Fazekas. "In Los Angeles, you have the spectacular wealth, glamour and beauty right next to the grit and crime-often right up against each other. We're very much being inspired by Noir films."

At first, it seemed that the move to LA may mean dropping the supporting cast, as Hayley Atwell was the only confirmed cast member. But a few fan favorites have now officially signed on for season two, including Enver Gjokaj, who plays Agent Daniel Sousa, and most importantly, James D'Arcy, who plays Jarvis. Fazekas assured fans that Jarvis would be incorporated into the plot in an "organic way," but also clarified that he's not still keeping tabs on her for Howard Stark, as she has gained more respect from her co-workers after the events of season one.

"She's not working for Howard in this regard. The nice thing about Peggy this season is she's not having to hide her agenda from the SSR. [Jarvis] is helping her out, just in a different way."

And for those of you who, like us, enjoyed the humor in the rapport between Peggy and Jarvis last season, it seems the move to Los Angeles will only add fuel to that fire. "He hates California," said Fazekas. "He hates palm trees. He does not stop wearing a wool suit."

So far, Sousa and Jarvis are the only supporting cast members confirmed, but Chad Michael Murray's Agent Thomas, Lyndsy Fonseca's Angie, and Bridget Regan's Dottie are all in negotiations and expected to return

Marvel/ABC's synopsis for Agent Carter season two reads:

Opening quote
"Marvel's Agent Carter" returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable secret agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home - and perhaps even a new love - she's about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.
Closing quote


Marvel's Agent Carter will premiere midseason next year, during the hiatus of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
