Watch your back Agent Coulson, it looks as though you could have some stiff competition in the form of Captain America's former lady love, because rumours about a possible Agent Carter TV series courtesy of Marvel Studios.

Hayley Atwell has already reprised her role for a series of one shots, which featured on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray release, but if Deadline is to be believed then Marvel are getting ready to take things a step further and give Peggy her very own TV series on ABC. That's the same channel that gives us Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D by the way.

Reports say that the project is in the very early stages of development, so don't go getting too far ahead of yourselves now. It's also not clear who'll be playing Carter on the telly either: Who knows if Hayley Atwell even has the time to do it?

Oh, and Marvel fans might be delighted to hear that the project is apparently only one of several in the pipeline.

Catch Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D on Channel 4 from Friday September 24th.
