In 1946, Peggy Carter is relegated to secretarial duties in the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR). When Howard Stark is accused of treason, he secretly recruits Peggy to clear his name with the help of his butler, Edwin Jarvis.
A look at the story behind Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, featuring interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from all of the Marvel films, the Marvel One-Shots and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
A year after Captain America was lost in action, the war is over. However, Agent Peggy Carter is relegated to a desk job and frustrated at her male boss and comrades' sexist dismissal of her place in the SSR. Ordered to work late one night, Carter gets an alert that the villain, Zodiac, has been spotted.

In the Marvel Comics Universe, Zodiac is the name of a supervillain team modeled after the figures of the zodiac that first fought the Avengers. In particular, one such member, Scorpio, was a major enemy of SHIELD in its first solo comics series in the 1960s by Jim Steranko. On the vial that Carter confiscates on her field mission is a symbol resembling the Zodiac Key, an advanced energy weapon that Scorpio and other members of Zodiac wield. See more »
Howard Stark invites Peggy Carter to "run SHIELD with him." But the organization was called under its full name back then, not SHIELD. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the acronym SHIELD was not used (chronologically) until the first Iron Man movie (Phil Coulson coins SHIELD as an abbreviation at the end of that film; the acronym did not exist at the beginning of the movie).

You took a mission last night.
I completed a mission last night.
Without even attempting to report in or get the proper authorization?
The mission was time-sensitive.
There are protocols in place. No one is above protocol. Not even Captain America's old flame.
How dare you.
Please. Let's stop pretending, shall we? Everyone knows why you're here.

I watched all of the Marvel One-Shot short films in one go (it only took about 25-30 minutes for all of them). They are all enjoyable in their own way but this one about Agent Carter is definitely my favourite one.
I really liked the plot of this short movie and Hayley Atwell delivered a very strong performance. It was only about 10 minutes long but it had everything. The action was very fast paced with some really cool fighting scenes.
When I was watching it it seemed like I was watching a proper movie, it was that well made. I definitely think the potential is there to make a full feature length movie about Agent Carter. Would highly recommend this (as well as the other short Marvel films).
