The first thing that has me jumping up and down, the return of Hayley Atwell as the amazing Agent Peggy Carter. When I heard that Agents of SHIELD was gonna take a long hiatus for the winter, i was miffed. But when I heard Marvel and ABC were gonna fill that spot with Agent Carter I was so excited. Bringing us the behind the scenes story of SHIELD’s beginnings with Agent Carter, Howard Stark, and apparently a living Jarvis. I couldn’t be more excited. Besides bringing back the amazing actress who brought this icon to life ( i can say that because without Peggy Carter we wouldn’t have Sharon Carter aka Agent 13), we also have the return of Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark. With a cast being round out by Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse fam), Chad Michael Murray, and Lyndsy Fonseca (who played a spy on CW’s Nikita). I’m thinking this may be a one time event for us to see Carter and her gang, but I wouldn’t mind a small peek into their world every so often…..SO OVER THE MOON. Are you?
Agent Carter premieres with a 2 hour episode Tuesday Jan 6 at 8pm on ABC
There’s another reason I’m over the moon. During Agent Carter’s 2 hour debut, we have the awesome chance of getting our first glimpse into Marvel’s Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd. Now I see this as a big thing, one because I like the idea of Ant-Man appearing on the big screen, two is that this will be the first of the next generation of Avengers characters to appear on the big screen. We have the first you could say generation. The only one that was really missing was Hank Pym. Hank will be appearing in the Ant-Man movie played by Michael Douglas. With the coming of Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange, there are chances that these new heroes could become a part of our new team of Avengers when the next fall apart or disband or disassemble(see what I did there). So to get a trailer that includes Corey Stoll as Yellowjacket, Evangeline Lilly as Pyms daughter, and Rudd as 2nd Ant-Man Scott Lang, I feel we will be surprised. There are alot of commenters online who are wondering if Ant-Man can be the subject of a movie being that his abilities are shrinking and communicating with ants. But 2 years ago they also thought a talking raccoon with a gun wasn’t movie material (where y’all at now). To prove that Marvel was ready to have fun and get this ball out there, they debuted a teaser online that was literally ant sized. It got me excited and I saw loads online anticipating its debut. Can’t wait for this.

Human sized Teaser
My man question will still be though: How is Ant-Man gonna fit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Especially because it comes out right after Avengers Age of Ultron.
