An Agent Carter series might be joining Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones.

A UK tabloid sites reports that English actress Hayley Atwell has landed the role of Peggy Carter (reprising from Captain America and the Agent Carter short film) in the Agent Carter spinoff.

The Mirror reports that Atwell is "thrilled" about landing the prestigious role; that she begins filming the series soon, and it should be out by the end of the year.

Hayley Atwell also will be appearing in Captain America 2 this April.

Back in September it was reported that the Agent Carter series was in development, but Disney CEO Bob Iger didn't confirm the news when the Marvel Studios Netflix deal was announced, but he did offer one more series was being developed.

The Agent Carter series is described as being a big budget production and a major Marvel project for 2014.
