New Featurette Shows Agent Carter Is Marvel's Mad Men
Agent Carter (finally!) premieres tonight, and Marvel's new featurette should only get fans more excited:
The focus in the featurette is on Peggy's struggle to be taken seriously in a male dominated workplace. Her struggle takes place shortly after the second World War, but is unfortunately all-too-relevant to today's society. During the war, Peggy had real responsibilities, as the men were all enlisting, but now that they've returned, she's been relegated to a glorified secretary position. This combination of character and setting has the potential to explore social issues that no other superhero show on television today has the opportunity to address.
The two-hour season premiere airs tonight at 8 pm on ABC.
