5 March - James' last day on the set of Survivor
- Category: Survivor
James finished filming his role in Survivor on March 5th. The last part of filming took place in Sofia's Nu Boyana Film Studios.
Survivor tells the story of a State Department employee (Milla Yovovich) newly posted to the American embassy in London, charged with stopping terrorists from getting into the U.S. That puts her right in the line of fire and she is targeted for death and framed for crimes.
James plays Paul Anderson. We don't know much about his role, but we think he plays a Secret Service agent (MI6 or CIA?) who is after Milla's character. He chased her in London's underground and was probably killed - there was an explosion filmed in Nu Boyana studio on his last day on the set... I hope my speculations are not true...

Interview: Capone does some deep thinking with actor James D'Arcy about AFTER THE FALL, JUPITER ASCENDING and more!!!
- Category: Survivor
Published on Feb. 14, 2014, 5:33 p.m. CST. Steve Prokopy "Capone" at Ain't It Cool News talked to James via phone from the set of his current film, the James McTeigue-directed SURVIVOR, with a stellar cast that includes Milla Jovovich, Emma Thompson, Pierce Brosnan, Angela Bassett and Dylan McDermott. D'Arcy was a real treat to talk with, even though he was afraid he wasn't in the best shape to be doing an interview. He described James as one of those wonderful, all-purpose actors with chameleon-like abilities who you've probably mistaken for other, more famous actors. When he wears his hair a certain way, you might think he was Ralph Fiennes; his phone voice is something of a dead ringer for Benedict Cumberbach...
James D’Arcy: Hi there. How are you, Steve?
Capone: Good, James. How are you?
JD: Good, thank you. You’ll have to forgive me if I’m a bit slow. I’ve come off a few days in a row of night shoots, and I’m kind of upside down. So, bear with me if you would. I’ll do my best.
Capone: Of course. Where are you calling from exactly?
JD: I’m in London at the moment.
Capone: Okay. The only reason I ask is because I actually saw the pilot of your TV series "Those Who Kill," and that’s shot in Pittsburgh. Are you done shooting that already?
JD: Yeah, yeah. We’ve done the first season. We finished it before Christmas. How’s the pilot? I haven't seen it.
Capone: Oh, the pilot’s terrific. I just watched it last night, and I won't lie, it freaked me out a bit.
JD: Go on, tell me, tell me. I’m intrigued.
Capone: I’m such a Chloe Sevigny fan, and the intensity with which she's approaching this character is so different than a lot of these procedurals do it. I’m really intrigued where it goes from there, because the first episode feels like a short film, and of course what you’re doing is a little nerve rattling as well. That moment where you lock her in the box is great.
JD: Right, well the pilot is a lift from the Danish show. I’ve never actually seen the Danish version, but I seem to remember when we shot it that it is actually an episode that they shot in Denmark. So that’s why it feels like a self-contained film, because all their episodes were 90-minute, self-contained TV movies. We deviate pretty quickly off of the pilot.
Capone: I’m looking forward to it. With AFTER THE DARK, I was describing the film to somebody as the most daunting philosophy final exam that you could have, plus it’s set in the apocalypse. What was it about this particular story that you found most appealing, other than you get to play God?
JD: [laughs] Well, there was that. I love the idea of being this Machiavellian puppeteer who was toying with these kids; lives. I liked that he was morally in a grey area, I guess, in terms of the way he was approaching things, and what he kept was saying was absolutely for real. I liked that complexity of it I suppose. I thought it was smart as well. It’s not often you read those kind of films and they have any kind of aspiration at all. And I thought that was really commendable and something that I wanted to investigate.
Another part of it was, they sent me a bunch of photographs of where we were going to go shoot in Indonesia, and it was very difficult to get away from that because it just looked so spectacular. I’m not sure that the Prambanan Temple has ever been in a film before. We stood on the side of Mount Bromo and shot there for; I think we were there for three or four days, and that’s extraordinary. That’s like filming on Mars, and it would be great when the sun came up. We'd get there at four in the morning, so we could get like the very first bit of light, and we could be shooting right away. At around about 11 o’clock, there’d be a light dust, like a light wind would come. Nothing, no big deal, but because all the volcanic dust is so fine there, a light dust is equal to a sand storm. So between 11am and 3pm, it was very difficult to film. It was extremely uncomfortable filming that sequence. And then at the end of the day, it would die down a little bit and it was great.
I did not know that it was an active volcano until we got there. I was under the impression that the last time that thing had blown was 300 years ago, and then when we got there, I think it was the production manager that said, “Oh no. There was an eruption last year.” And I said to him, “Seriously? Wow. But I mean everyone was safe, right?” He said, “No, no, 22 people died.” And I went, “Okay, so tell me what happens if the volcano does actually erupt?” He said, “We die.” And I went, “We don't get in fast cars and drive away?” And he said, “There’s no chance. You wouldn’t be able to do it.” So that added a bit of tension, which was kind of fun.
And the reward for getting through those four days was then we went to the Belitung Islands. I couldn’t believe that such a place existed on earth, because there are no tourists. There’s just no one. No one was there. There are thousands of those islands like the one that we shot on. I guess that was a little bigger than most. And the one that we shot on had been very slightly built on, and by "very slightly," I mean like two extremely modest structures, but there’s no water, and I think that's maybe why right now you can own one of those islands relatively inexpensively actually, but you can’t do much with it. I say "relatively inexpensively," I mean, you and me couldn't afford it. But if you had money and you wanted to own an island, it’s actually not that difficult to pick one of those up. But what you would do with it once you had it, I don't really know. But it was extraordinary because it was like filming in paradise.
Capone: Working with all these younger actors, did it make you feel not just older but slightly separate from the rest of the cast, which would be appropriate for this character.
JD: Yeah, I felt slightly separate from the rest, as you say, because I was at the front of the class, and I was looking at them. I was never part of their group. I wasn’t sitting next to anybody. There was always that separation in the script, and actually they were all extremely nice, and I hung out with them. We had a really good time, but there were a few moments when I certainly went, “Oh wow, I am definitely older than you guys.” Because they would be talking about things, and I had no idea what they were talking about. Belitung They’d be talking about like some pop star or something, and I would not know, and they would all look at me incredulously that I wouldn’t have heard of so and so. At the time that we shot it, I remember everyone on the set was playing Fruit Ninja, the app game. I'd never heard of it. They were all like, “What? That can’t be right.” So it was fun because I got to be 22 again. They brought me right back into the fold as it were.
Capone: Over the years, you've built up the reputation of being this perfect chameleon actor to the point where some people might not even realize it’s all the same person in all of these roles. And you also never repeat yourself in terms of the types of roles you take. Is that a deliberate thing, or is that just good fortune at this point?
JD: It’s a little bit of both. The truth is I am definitely attracted to something that I haven't done or something that scares me, something I feel I can’t do. That definitely is a motivational force, and then there is another part of that, which is, early in your career, you don’t have a huge number of choices, you just have to do what they offer you. There was a time in truth in my 20s when I did a huge number of period dramas in Britain, and I got to the point where I couldn’t really get anymore period dramas, because I had been in all of them. So I was just one of those faces to the people who were casting them that they were bored of seeing in those dramas. But then nobody in Britain would consider me for anything else.
That's actually why I first went to the States, because I was struggling to get work. And within six weeks of being there, I was cast in a pilot playing a gun-toting, he was an alien in truth, but with an American accent. An American-speaking, gun-toting, action figure--within weeks of getting there I was in a pilot, which I really enjoyed, but sadly they never picked it up. And then somehow--I don’t even know how it happened--something changed, and I guess I got a little lucky. And then at some point, it’s a little bit easier to say no to things that you feel like you’ve really been there before.
I do enjoy variety. It is really good fun. I think I would struggle with playing the same role for years and years and years. I don’t know that I would be a great fit for that kind of thing. I love the challenge of it. I did this one very small film, which very few people saw, called SCREWED, and I did it right after the Madonna film. Within four days, I went from being the King of England to being an East London prison officer. And it’s really the most frightened I’ve ever been, because all the people that were making the movie were from East London, the real thing. In fact, the guy who wrote it, it was essentially his autobiography. And, I remember getting on the set and going, “I can’t believe that less than a week ago I was playing the king, and now here I am playing someone who is actually employed by my 'niece'.” If you think about it, as a prison officer, you are employed by the Queen in Great Britain. So, I think I’ve been a bit lucky in that regard.
Capone: I could have spent this entire interview just talking about what you all did in CLOUD ATLAS, and I’m excited to see that you’re in Wachowski’s next film, JUPITER ASCENDING. I’m from Chicago and I know they shot a great deal here; did you actually get to shoot anything in Chicago?
JD: No, I hate to tell you, my contribution to JUPITER is relatively small. I am a part of it, but you’ll see when you see the film. I’m not a big part of it.
Capone: Can you just go ahead and tell me the whole story?
JD: [laughs] I am not going to tell you the whole thing. Man, they kept that script so under wraps. They didn’t give me the script; I had to go somewhere to read it. I guess that’s the way with all these big films now. I understand. If you’re going to spend all of that money making a big spectacle like JUPITER--you can tell it's going to be huge just based on seeing the trailer--you want the audience to have the surprise.
Capone: The Wachowski's were like that even before. They were always so secretive, which is great. What is different about the way the Wachowskis work with actors, and just work in general?
JD: I’ve often wondered about this question about directors. It’s so difficult to put your finger on it, because when it goes right--like it does with Andy and Lana, and it does with Peter Weir, and it does with Tom Tykwer and a number of other directors I’ve worked with--you can’t think how it could not go right. It’s just easy. They say three words to you, and you just know what they’re talking about. It somehow just works. And when it goes wrong when you’re with a director, and you just aren't connecting well, you can’t think what it was like when you were with a director where it worked. It’s so interesting. You’re on the set, and they’re talking to you and they give you the note, and you just don’t get it. I don’t know quite why that is.
Some people just have a great way of getting into an actor’s head and communicating with them really well, and Andy and Lana absolutely have that. And they’re also very playful on the set. They’re not precious about stuff. You don’t wanna change their words anyway, but in terms of the way that one might perform any given scene or line, they don’t have a preconceived idea of what that’s going to look like. They’re very playful, which I think is lovely, to go to work and have that freedom. You feel very safe with them. If you fail, they’re not going to put it in the film. You really do feel very protected by them in that regard.
Capone: I noticed also this summer you’ve got a comedy coming out. I assume it’s a comedy based on the cast that’s surrounding you.
JD: It’s a comedy, yeah.
Capone: Do you approach comedy any different than any other type of acting?
JD: I am not very funny in this film. [laughs] It is a broad comedy. I am not the funny part of it. I am the real threat in the film.
Capone: I was going to say, it sounds like you’re the villain.
JD: Yes, I’m the villain. I have done comedy though. Comedy is completely different than doing drama. With drama, they call cut, and I don't ever think about it ever again. I go have a nice meal, I go to bed, I sleep great. Comedy, you wake up at 3am in a complete sweat thinking, “Oh my god, if I had just moved an inch to the left, it would have been funny.” Comedy is horrendous to do. Drama, I can do that all day and all month and all year, but comedy is really draining. My hat is off to Will Farrell and people like that who are just so gifted in that area. It is a gift. It’s extraordinary, and I guess if I did more of it, I would learn more. I was just working with Dylan McDermott, and we were talking about THE CAMPAIGN, and he said that Will Farrell would just go off on a 17-minute take, and he had to spend 17 minutes in the shot trying not to fall over laughing.
Capone: So what are you shooting right now?
JD: It’s called SURVIVOR at the minute, with Mila Jovovich and Pierce Brosnan and Dylan. I don't know that it is going to end up being called SURVIVOR. I’m not sure. That is the working title.
Capone: Who’s directing?
JD: James McTeigue [the first assistant director on all three MATRIX films and second unit director on SPEED RACER].
Capone: Another Wachowski connection.
JD: Yeah, he’s great. He’s really wonderful.
Capone: Yeah, he’s really awesome. James, thank you so much for talking.
JD: Thank you, I appreciate it. Take it easy

James on the set of Survivor
- Category: Survivor
A new photo of James filming "in the bowels of London" appeared today. Milla Jovovich commented: "You make the bowels of London look "luxury" darlin!" We agree! (For more photos check the previous post )
Survivor centres on a United States State Department official, played by Milla, who is sent to work at the American embassy in London. She is tasked with stopping terrorists from getting into the US but when her offices are bombed and she is the only survivor, she is framed for crimes she didn’t commit.
Pierce’s character fights to clear her name as she goes on the run and attempts to stop a major attack in New York’s Times Square.
James' role in the film is as yet unknown. Judging from the photo (gun in his hand and a Spook-like look) he plays a spy/agent/MI6 employee. Is he chasing Milla through underground London or helping Brosnan's character to save her?
PS Tumblr is still "talking" about James' appearance in Harold Pinter's Theatre last week.
Peggy & Jarvis goes to Hollywood, and Jarvis hates it there!
- Category: Agent Carter
EW provided us with a first look of a new setting and backstory for Jarvis and Peggy in Season 2 of Marvel's Agent Carter, and a new comic-con poster!! (Image Credit: Kris Anka / Marvel/ABC)
Agent Carter is heading to Hollywood!
When the second season of the ABC drama kicks off, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) will be westward bound thanks to the SSR. “There’s a case that goes beyond what the LAPD or normal local police would be able to handle that falls into their purview,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW.
'Agent Carter' season 2 set in L.A.
Moving the setting across coasts provided the series with a whole new look, according to EP Tara Butters. “It’s a great place for us location wise, so you can see so many different parts of glamor and grit,” as evidenced in the limited edition Comic-Con poster for the show’s second season below—which you can pick up for free at the Marvel booth (#2339) from Thursday-Sunday, while supplies last.
“In Los Angeles, you have the spectacular wealth, glamour and beauty right next to the grit and crime—often right up against each other,” Fazekas adds. “We’re very much being inspired by Noir films.”
As EW revealed on Tuesday, Peggy will be joined by Jarvis (James D’Arcy), Agent Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) and likely Agent Jack Thompson—sources say deals for Chad Michael Murray, Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan are forthcoming.
“We have a nice organic way to infuse Jarvis,” Fazekas says. “That was always the challenge. He’s not an agent. The case for the first season is over, so the biggest question for us this season was: We love Peggy and Jarvis together, that’s a really important relationship, how do we keep them together? LA has provided us a really nice, organic way to do so.”
Unlike last season, however, Jarvis isn’t necessarily keeping tabs on Carter for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper). “She’s not working for Howard in this regard,” Fazekas says, noting that Peggy has a level of respect now from her co-workers after the events of season 1. “The nice thing about Peggy this season is she’s not having to hide her agenda from the SSR. [Jarvis] is helping her out, just in a different way.” Unfortunately, Jarvis is not a fan of Los Angeles. “He hates California,” Fazekas says. “He hates palm trees. He does not stop wearing a wool suit.”
Agent Carter is slated to return midseason on ABC.
James is filming "Survivor” In London
- Category: Survivor
Thanks to Milla Jovovich (on Twitter) we got to know that James is her co-star in Survivor, a "V for Vendetta" director James McTeigue's action thriller. Survivor began filming on Monday, January 20. in London.
The photo was taken during the filming today: "Shooting in a tunnel that may lead to the centre of the Earth”.
Philip Shelby script follows a State Department employee (Milla Jovovich) newly posted to the American embassy in the UK. Given responsibility for stopping terrorists from getting into the US, she is soon targeted for death, framed for crimes she didn’t commit, and on the run.
Not only must she clear her name, but she must also stop a large scale terrorist attack targeting Times Square on New Year's Eve. Pierce Brosnan, Dylan McDermott, Angela Bassett and Robert Forster also star.
Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, Boaz Davidson and Matt O’Toole will produce.
On Instagram, Jan 31 2014 @jamesdarcy1234 posts:
"Our lovely leading lady keeping warm in the tunnel that might lead to the centre of the Earth.#survivormovie"
and to which @millajovovich reposts:

Agent Carter season 2 news
- Category: Agent Carter
Kelsey MacNeal on ew.com:
After snagging a second season renewal, Agent Carter is leaving New York City behind.
In the wake of saving the world once again and letting go of her beloved Steve Rogers, SSR Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is moving to Los Angeles in season 2.
Here’s the description of the new season: “Dedicated to the fight against new atomic age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home — and perhaps even a new love — she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.”
Hayley Atwell revealed that season 2 of Agent Carter will consist of 10 episodes, two more than season 1. We are sure that James will reprise his role as Jarvis, although it hasn't been officially confirmed yet.
Smoke and Mirrors - "Agent Carter" Ep.4 promos
- Category: Agent Carter
"Agent Carter" Episode 4 Smoke and Mirrors will air next Tuesday Febr 2 on ABC. Synopsis: Agent Carter and the SSR learn there's more than just a pretty face behind Hollywood star Whitney Frost, Peggy's most dangerous foe yet.
Here are the trailer and a funny sneak peek of episode 4.
Stephen Patterson from Movie Pilot wrote this excellent review after the British premiere of Agent Carter S2:
I was skeptical, after completing the first season, if the series was going to be able to maintain it’s high standard. After all, the series was imagined as an eight-part storyline, how could it possibly continue? Surprisingly, the second season has started incredibly well and, after only three episodes, it's quickly becoming my favourite show on television. Setting up a completely separate arc from the first season (as well as a few remaining storylines from the first), the second season feels completely fresh yet familiar. The storylines are well paced and very much reflect the style of the films belonging to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
I'm a sucker for a good 1940's War drama. Marvel's Agent Carter takes place in 1946 - one year after Captain America: The First Avenger, and highlights the attitude towards women during a post-war world. The creators of the show have done a wonderful job at recreating the setting - specifically downtown New York which, even at 1080p HD, looks incredibly realistic. The outfits, hairstyles, music and establishments all reflect the time period wonderfully, making Marvel's Agent Carter visually stunning and unlike anything else on television.
Perhaps the best thing about Marvel (Unlike DC) is that their television shows take place within their cinematic universe, meaning that we get the pleasure of having the same actors return to their cinematic roles. Hayley Atwell is captivating as Peggy Carter. I have been a fan of hers and the character since I first saw Captain America: The First Avenger. In a world where women are not recognised as equals, Peggy Carter stands out and is not afraid to do whatever it takes to get the job done. James D'arcy is brilliant as Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark's unfortunate yet caring butler, who forms a great partnership with Carter. With more hilarity than you may expect in such a show, their partnership and ultimately friendship is arguably the highlight of every episode. In fact, I would go as far to say that theirs is the best partnership currently on television. Dominic Cooper often returns as Howard Stark, who is as crude as he is caring. It's pleasant when beginning a new show, to be already acquainted with many of the characters.
If you’re a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then this show is for you. If you’re a DC fan (I personally would identify with DC more than Marvel), then the chances are you will enjoy the show too. If you just enjoy damn good television, then I can't recommend this show enough! I am a comic book geek: I watch nearly every superhero show on television (past and present - including the classic Batman and Wonder Woman series), yet I find myself looking forward to Marvel’s Agent Carter more than any other show on television. If you enjoyed the first season, I urge that you watch the second, as it continues a wonderfully crafted, well planned out storyline with some of the greatest fictional characters ever made. In the season two premiere, Jarvis asks Peggy Carter if she's ready for "another adventure". To answer that question for her: yes. I, for one, can’t wait for the next episode.

Proper, professional, and humble, Jarvis mixes the traditional flavor of earl grey with bright notes of lemon and the honeyed sweetness of chamomile, making him a reliable blend to have by your side. Best enjoyed before 9 o'clock.

Want more Agent Carter? It's all down to you!

An article from Agent Carter.net:
After this week’s action packed episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter it is hard to fathom that we have only 3 episodes (only 2 now) to go before the season is over. I want more. You want more. We all want more Agent Carter!
Guess what fans, it’s up to you to make it happen, don’t just sit back and hope for the best. While renewal chances are good, there’s never a guarantee so you need to do your part.
We asked Agent Carter Showrunner Tara Butters what fans can do. “Let ABC know you want more Agent Carter by catching up on your episodes,” she said, “Tell them you want more Agent Carter.”
Writer of this week’s episode Jose Molina chimed in too saying the fate of the show is in our hands when he tweeted:
@JoseMolinaTV: If you like #AgentCarter, PLEASE watch legally at http://abc.com or iTunes, etc. You decide the fate of the show. #RenewAgentCarter
Some people will try to tell you that ratings and key demos are all that matters and if you are not a Nielsen viewer tough luck because there’s nothing you can do but it’s not true. Not true at all. There’s plenty you can do to make sure Agent Carter returns for another season.
The simplest way to get your voice heard is to watch (and re-watch) the episodes online via legal options. The ABC website, ABC Watch app, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, xbox, Google Play are all legal ways you can watch the show. Every week we update the Watch page here on AgentCarter.net with the latest links to make it easy for you.
Watching this way may not be included in the overnight/DVR viewing figures we see published every week but ABC and Marvel do keep track of these services and it is an important way for them to monitor their audience numbers. It also brings in money through direct sales and advertising so it does matter and with less and less people tuning in to watch live television in general every season, it matters more and more.
In addition to watching online please take just 2 minutes out of your day right now to give ABC some direct feedback, there are several ways you can do this and they are all quick and easy.
LEAVE ABC FEEDBACK BY PHONE
One of the most effective ways of having your voice heard is to pick up the phone and call ABC’s feedback line. You will have the opportunity to leave a 30 second message. There are several steps you will need to go through and to make it easier for you we’ve listed all the numbers you will need below so you don’t have to wait for the whole recorded message, just hit the next number when each message progresses. Think about what you’d like to say before you call. Tell them how much you enjoy the show and that you would like to see it renewed.
Dial the number 818-460-7477 (within the USA, add +1 at the beginning if dialing via an international cell phone) to get the “Audience information department”
Press 1 for “ABC television network”
Press 2 for “leave comment”
Press 2 for “prime time shows”
Enter 243 for “Marvel’s Agent Carter”
Leave your message up to 30 seconds long and then simply hang up.
SEND ABC AN EMAIL
You can email ABC programming feedback using the form on the following page. Tell them what it is about the show you enjoy and that you want to see the show renewed.
USE SOCIAL MEDIA
Make the most of social media. You can use Facebook, Twitter etc to be counted as a fan by ABC by “liking” the official Facebook page and following the Twitter account. Respond to their posts regularly. Tag your tweets with the official tag #AgentCarter during the episodes (both Eastern & Pacific regardless of where you live) and discuss the show with your friends.
I have to add that Agent Carter fans made "poor Jarvis" , "Peggy Carter", #AgentCarter and Dottie trending in the US and Canada. "Poor Jarvis" was trending worldwide Tuesday evening!

The show's ratings aren't very good, unfortunately, but the critics love it. Agent Carter is 97% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. And it's among top 10 TV shows mentioned at social media.
Plus, Jarvis is a fan favorite. Of course, we KNEW IT WILL BE SO from the beginning, but it's very very pleasant to read tweets ("love Jarvis") and see hundreds of gifs all over the social media!
Video interviews with James and Hayley from San Diego Comic Con
- Category: Agent Carter
James and Hayley gave several video interviews during the San Diego Comic Con., some of them funny, some sweet, all of them interesting :)
Tonya Papanikolas interviewed them for Spoiler TV. She wrote:
But before you watch the video, here’s what we learned from the executive producing team of Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas and Chris Dingess.
First of all, the show is moving to Los Angeles for season two as Peggy is called to investigate a murder. Butters teases, “The investigation ends up being a much bigger, more Marvel-y kind of subject matter.”
Jarvis is heading west as well. Fazekas says defense contractors were prevalent in Los Angeles in the 1940s. So the writers decided to move Howard Stark out to California for government contract work. And while he’s there, Stark starts a movie studio. All of this will keep Jarvis busy.
The new location will give some of the characters fresh outlooks. “When you talk about Hollywood, it’s a place where people move to sort of reinvent themselves, and we touch on that,” Dingess reveals.
With the Los Angeles shift, the feel of the series will also change. Butters tells us, “One of the things that we’re really excited about is that you get to show the Hollywood glamour and the 1940s movie scene and the kind of underlying tones of a film noir.”
Also of note: Anna Jarvis will no longer be a mysterious voice. Her character finally makes an appearance on screen. Characters like hers will introduce new relationships for the show. But on the other side of the spectrum, Dingess tells us, “Existing relationships that Peggy has with different characters will become more complicated.”
Of course, the relationship between Peggy and Jarvis remains the central relationship of the series. That is due in large part to the chemistry between the actors. Dingess says, “As we were writing season one and we got them together, by episode three we really had a very strong sense of their chemistry. Everyone wanted to milk that chemistry for all it was worth.”
Butters adds, “They’re so incredibly charming together. And I love seeing a man and a woman [on TV] having great chemistry without it being necessarily sexual. I think it’s just such a nice relationship you don’t always see on television.”

Nerd HQ 2015: A conversation with Marvel
- Category: Agent Carter
This photo above was made by Jennifer Carey from The Geek Girl Project, who attended the panel. Thank you!
The Conversations for a Cause panel series from San Diego Comic-Con featured discussions with genre film and TV legends like Joss Whedon, Guillermo del Toro, Scott Bakula, and many more. It began on Thursday in The New Children's Museum in San Diego, but -for us - the most interersting panel took place on Sunday morning. James, Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) appeared in Marvel panel that was streamed live on IGN.com. If you didn't see it yesterday, here is the video. Enjoy:
The Dubsmash War between James and Hayley versus Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg raised much interest in the media. Radio Times posted a funny article (with videos) on this "lip-synch battle" between Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, the same did The Insightful Panda, saying: When Agents Collide, Everyone Wins! The article concludes:
Whether this is the end or just the beginning, this war confirms two important things.
The last video of the "battle" Chloe posted on her Instagram and said: "The war continues. The Bad Blood video as promised for our #NerdHQ panel".

Peggy's Betrayal Puts Jarvis In "Nightmare Situation"
- Category: Agent Carter
Hollywood Reporter published a new interview (by Aaron Couch) with James today:
'Agent Carter': Peggy's Betrayal Puts Jarvis in "Nightmare Situation". James D'Arcy also weighs in on if Howard Stark's butler could appear in future seasons: "There are so many permutations that could get them back together."
Jarvis (James D'Arcy) will have some major explaining to do on Tuesday's Agent Carter.
The loyal butler to Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) betrayed Peggy (Hayley Atwell) in a big way last week, when he knowingly helped his boss manipulate her into stealing a vial of Captain America's (Chris Evans) blood. Howard had Peggy believe she was stealing a dangerous weapon, but his plan was to recover Cap's blood and use it to further medical research (and make a healthy profit, of course).
It was quite a blow to Peggy, who had a romantic relationship with Cap during World War II, and had grown to consider Jarvis a close confidant. D'Arcy says Jarvis is in a "nightmare situation" when the episode begins.
"He was definitely aware of Stark's plan. What he had not accounted for was he would suddenly discover loyalties in another direction," D'Arcy tells The Hollywood Reporter. "They meet up and have a blazing row."
Tuesday's episode is to feature a direct tie-in to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, which introduced Peggy Carter to the screen. The Howling Commandos are making an appearance, and while in the comics and in the film they were under the command of Captain America, this time Peggy will be taking the lead.
"Peggy gets her own operation and that's a big deal considering where we've come from," says D'Arcy. "Jarvis is slightly instrumental to that in the beginning, not perhaps in the most obvious ways, but he challenges her to really explore what she really wants."
Jarvis has become the surprise breakout character in Agent Carter, with the onscreen chemistry between D'Arcy and Atwell much talked about among fans of the show. Atwell and showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have expressed hopes for future seasons to explore Peggy's adventures throughout different decades. What would that mean for Jarvis' role in these adventures?
The Iron Man films have already established that Jarvis remains with Howard Stark and ends up playing a role in little Tony Stark's (Robert Downey Jr.) upbringing, as Tony's A.I. is named after Jarvis. D'Arcy suggests that perhaps Jarvis could take a vacation to join Peggy on future adventures.
"I'm not sure if he can take a sabbatical, but there are so many permutations that could get them back together," says D'Arcy. "One of the things Marvel is really, really good at is managing to weave the various threads of their universe together without making too many jumps in logic, but also making it satisfying."
Episode 5 The Iron Ceiling:
Peggy is finally trusted with a mission and calls upon her trusted Howling Commandos squad for backup. But her cover could be at risk when SSR Chief Dooley also sends Agent Thompson with her.
