Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter is trading the mean streets of New York for the bright lights of Los Angeles in season two of “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” and ABC has released the first teaser trailer for the midseason spy series.
While the specific threats that Peggy must face in the new season are being kept under wraps for the time being (this is Marvel, after all), the promo showcases Peggy’s trademark combination of dry British wit and ass-kicking skills, in addition to hinting at a new romance with Reggie Austin’s Jason Wilkes, a quirky but charming scientist.
