The Marvel One-Shot, Agent Carter, gets removed from Disney+, despite the short film getting its own separate tab earlier in September.
The Marvel One-Shot, Agent Carter, has been removed from Disney+. Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) became a fan-favorite character after her appearance in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and Marvel Studios quickly began working on ways for the character to reappear. The first of those efforts was a Marvel One-Shot titled Agent Carter that was released on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.
The short film led to Marvel developing the series, Agent Carter, which aired on ABC for two seasons. Hayley Atwell reprised her role as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and Avengers: Endgame. Marvel recently put Peggy Carter in the spotlight in the animated series, What If…?, which featured Peggy Carter receiving the super soldier serum and becoming Captain Carter. All of this can be traced back to the Marvel-One Shot released back in 2013, as Marvel’s first attempt to continue Peggy Carter’s story.
It appears that the Agent Carter One-Shot has been removed from Disney+. According to The Direct, the short film has been removed as both its own feature and as a bonus feature on the Iron Man 3 extras. Clips from the Agent Carter One-Shot are still available on the Marvel Studios: Legends episode focused on Peggy Carter.
The ABC series, Agent Carter, is still up on Disney+, and that series’ status as canon remains a point of conversation among fans. Given the series was created by Captain America trilogy screenwriters, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and the involvement of Joe and Anthony Russo on the series, meant it had a greater chance of being considered canon to the MCU films, which were solidified with a cameo appearance by Jarvis actor James D’Arcy in Avengers: Endgame. However, as with every other Marvel series before WandaVision, it is likely the series isn’t considered canon, and no footage of the series was featured in the episode of Marvel Studios: Legends.
The news of the removal comes just a few weeks after Disney put the Agent Carter One-Shot as its own feature page on the Marvel section, similar to the recent addition of the All Hail The King One-Shot shortly before the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The addition of the Agent Carter One-Shot led many to speculate that Hayley Atwell would return as Peggy Carter in an upcoming Marvel project, possibly Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. The removal of the Agent Carter One-Shot could be nothing more than a simple shift around of material on the service, but given that What If…?‘s final episode is expected to include Captain Carter, it seems odd that Disney would remove a title featuring Atwell’s character.
