We're seeing more previews of 'Marvel's Agent Carter' as the new show approaches its January 6, 2015 debut date.

In case you're not up to speed, 'Agent Carter' stars Hayley Atwell as one of the founders of Marvel's clandestine organization S.H.I.E.L.D.. The series is set in 1946, and it also has Dominic Cooper in a recurring role as Howard Stark (Tony Stark's father). The show will air on the +ABC Television Network.

So far, the previews have looked really interesting and I can't wait to see Atwell in a weekly series - it's long overdue for the talented actress to have her own show.

Here's the synopsis for 'Marvel's Agent Carter', courtesy of marvel.com -

###

"Marvel's Agent Carter," starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life--Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, "Marvel's Agent Carter" is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Jeph Loeb.

As I write this it's 1:00 am on the East Coast so this is gonna be short and sweet. Although Warner Bros. hasn't officially announced it, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Michelle MacLaren has signed on to helm the upcoming Wonder Woman movie.

I really enjoyed MacLaren's work on 'Breaking Bad' and 'Game of Thrones' so I'm totally on board with this choice. How about you?

If you've been checking out +Capes on Film for a while then you know I'm a big fan of fan-made videos. I'm constantly amazed at the talented YouTubers out there who remix and mash superhero movies.

One of my favorite YouTubers is Alex Luthor, who already has several badass trailers on his channel.

Today Alex unveiled his latest video - Thor: Ragnarok. The real movie (of course, the third in Marvel's 'Thor' series) doesn't drop until July 28, 2017, but I think Alex does a great job of imagining what the movie might look like.
