Review

Hayley Atwell stars as the titular Peggy Carter in this 1946-set spy adventure, which follows on from the character’s time with superhero Captain America in Marvel movie Captain America: the First Avenger back in 2011.

Still, if you didn’t see that, not to worry – all you need to know is that British-born New York spy Peggy is an awesome, ass-kicking agent at the top of her game who’s basically relegated to the status of a secretary after all the men return from war.

Luckily, Peggy manages to find a way to protect the world as she’s given a secret mission by her old friend Howard Stark, while still battling for equality in the workplace and her day-to-day-life (don’t worry – it’s not as worthy as it sounds).

Funny, action-packed and addressing real issues of sexism and discrimination, you'll soon fall for Peggy Carter as quickly as Captain America did.

Summary

Former SAS officer Peggy Carter, who fought alongside Captain America during the Second World War, finds herself consigned to a desk job as hostilities come to an end. Frustrated by the red-tape that prevents her making use of her skills as an expert spy, Peggy jumps at the chance to get back out into the field when she is approached in secret by her old friend Howard Stark - father of future Iron Man Tony Stark - who has been labelled a traitor, and seeks her help to clear his name. Fantasy adventure set in the late 1940s, with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from the Captain America films, with James D'Arcy and Enver Gjokaj.
