Some people write letters to Santa Claus, but here at Screen Rant a much more important annual list is the Top 10 Things We Want to See at Comic-Con. The first announcements for panels and previews at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 have already promised to make our wish for previews of new comic book TV series come true, with premieres of the Gotham and The Flash pilots as well as footage from Constantine, so it only seems fair that we would also get to see what Marvel is bringing to our TV screens.

Along with major movie projects like Ant-Man, Marvel Studios has announced that both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter will be represented at Comic-Con during the Marvel Television Presents panel on Friday 25th July. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast members Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain de Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge will all be present alongside executive producers Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen and Jeffrey Bell.

Of the two shows announced, Agent Carter definitely has the more intriguing edge simply by virtue of being a new series rather than an established one. Peggy Carter herself, Hayley Atwell, will be present for the Q&A panel with executive producers Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely and Louis D’Esposito. Both panels will be moderated by Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb. There will also be autograph sessions for both series, as detailed below.

Be in Ballroom 20 from 3:00-4:00 p.m. PT Friday, July 25, and check out an autograph session for “Marvel’s Agent Carter” preceding the panel from 1:00-2:00 p.m. PT at the Marvel Booth (#2329) on the Convention Floor. Plus, on Saturday, July 26, meet the “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” cast and Executive Producers for an autograph session from 10:00-11:00am at the Marvel Booth (#2329).

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Characters Comic Con 2014: Marvel Bringing Agent Carter & Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

It was recently confirmed that Dominic Cooper will reprise his role as Howard Stark in Agent Carter, and ABC released an official synopsis for the show with a few plot details. Set in 1946, Agent Carter will find the eponymous agent feeling marginalized after the return of the men who had been fighting abroad, and struggling to cope with single life in the wake of Steve Rogers’ ‘death.’ Stuck doing paperwork for the Strategic Scientific Reserve, Peggy balances her already highly covert job with even more secret missions for Howard Stark.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had quite a few teething problems to work through during its first season, but the general fan consensus is that the fallout from Captain America: The Winter Soldier helped things to pick up towards the end of the season. Gregg has teased that the second season of the show will be a lot more lo-fi as the team attempts to “rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up in a much more dangerous world.”

Of the two shows on the Marvel Television Presents panel, tell us in the comments which one you’re more excited for. It’s OK to be hyped for them both, of course.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2 will get underway on ABC later this year @9PM ET on Tuesdays, and Agent Carter will premiere on ABC in January 2015.

  1. Bring on Season 2 of AoS and I am really looking forward to seeing more from Peggy and Howard!

    Make mine Marvel.

    • I’ll never be done laughing at parrots who use that slogan!

      Lol @ you

  2. Agent Carter was so much fan . She’s so sexy and she’s the example of a Marvel leading lady lol I want to see Mr.Stark too…..FINGERS CROSSED

  3. I’m waiting for AOS but not for agent Carter. OK Peggy was really hot to my eyes but i don’t find any attraction about this series. I Believe that that WB and DC universe have their lead in this category (Arrow, Flash, Gotham etc).

    • Opposite for me, I’m looking forward to Agent Carter but not interested in AOS but definitely agree that DC’s shows have the lead, especially after that Flash pilot.

      I’m a fan of Hayley Atwell and Dominic Cooper anyway so at least with Agent Carter, they have some known talents in the regular cast to keep things afloat, even if things go a little AOS.

      • The Flash pilot definitely set the bar high!

      • Go a little AOS? You mean getting better and better as the season goes along? I’d prefer to it to start and stay strong myself. But it could do worse than AOS and still be a show worth watching.

        • AOS was really boring in their first episodes, but then it started to be very interesting, remember the sif, with maria hill (i believe they have to give her a lead role in the series since how i met your mother is over) etc.

  4. Atwell’s scenes in Cap:TFA were some of my favorites and Dominic Cooper is awesome as Stark. Can’t wait for this!

  5. It’s self evident. It had enough viewers and scored high enough ratings to get a renewal and had a mostly good reaction from viewers. Even if you didn’t like it, your confusion over its renewal seems confusing.

    • Just ignore him TrueDat.

      Rolan is a know troll on this site, they have blocked his other accounts.

      • Stings to be called out, doesn’t it?

      • No one asks for your opinion, too. So advise yourself to shut up

  6. Some of the iron man 3 haters probably haven’t seen the extended Peggy One-Shot attached to the BluRay. Give it a look if you get a chance as it involves Stark and Shield and more story (not included in the short clip). If you don’t like Peggy you may just change your mind after watching it.

  7. I’m really excited about Agent Carter. I think it has the potential to be amazing. And yeah Hayley Atwell is awesome and Dominick Cooper coming back is a giant plus as well.

    I hope some members of the Howling Commando will make appearances, like Dugan in the one-shot. :D
