The former ABC president thinks so Agent Carter would have worked better today. Before Disney+’s current Marvel Cinematic Universe shows, there was the original Marvel TV era. From 2010 until 2019, Marvel television hosted multiple shows across ABC, Netflix and Hulu. But Marvel TV was ultimately absorbed into Marvel Studios as part of Kevin Feige’s responsibilities.
Agent Carter was one of ABC’s few Marvel TV shows to last only two seasons. However, former ABC president Paul Lee believes it would have done better today. In a new interview with The packagingLee expressed his optimism for Agent Carter if it existed today. Due to how interconnected the MCU movies and shows are now, Lee shared the following:
Look, structurally, don’t forget, this was at a time when Marvel movies and Marvel TV were separated. So I think one of the reasons it would do better today is because the platform is used to it. And it would have sat brilliantly among them. But it was a good early suggestion of where the Marvel brand could go and very useful for everyone.
Could Agent Carter Season 3 Ever Happen?
In theory, Agent Carter season 3 could always happen on Disney+ if Marvel Studios saw a potential for it. It would be up to them if they wanted to use Agent Carter’s original showrunners or get a new creative team. However, it’s been nearly a decade since ABC canceled the show, and the MCU is at a different time now. Getting an audience would be a harder sell Agent Carter season 3.
However, Agent Carter could always take Daredevil: Born Again route on Disney+. Instead of a revival of the series, Peggy Carter’s story could continue in an entirely new show. Since Hayley Atwell returned to the MCU as Captain Carter, there has been interest in seeing Peggy’s arc continue. That would probably be the better option, especially as part of the Multiverse Saga.
Time will tell if Marvel Studios will ever visit again Agent Carter in any capacity. If they left Captain Carter route that would probably get more eyes than Agent Carter season 3. But with Marvel Studios, anything can happen, including a potential Agent Carter revival.
