Hayley Atwell returning to 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
If last week’s tease of Agent Carter wasn’t enough to satiate fans, Marvel has more of Peggy Carter on the way before her own show begins.
Marvel announced that Hayley Atwell will reprise her role as agent Carter in the Nov. 18th episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The episode, titled “The Things We Bury,” will largely revolve around a S.H.I.E.L.D./Hydra showdown, while Ward kidnaps his senator brother, Christian Ward, to revisit the pair’s past.
Still, “Bury” will make time for a Carter cameo and give viewers another glimpse into what she’s been up to in a post-Captain America world. Marvel is remaining mum on just how exactly she’ll play into the episode’s events, though it’s a safe bet she’ll be as badass she was in her previous appearance this season.
The episode will also include a guest spot from a Marvel-adjacent star, as Lou Ferrigno Jr. will play Agent Hauer in “Bury.” His father, Lou Ferrigno, the first live-action Hulk, has stayed in the Marvel family, having made a brief appearance in The Incredible Hulk and lent his voice to the green goliath in The Avengers.
Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) assembles a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to handle strange new cases.
