Season two of ABC’s Agent Carter sees Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her right-hand man Jarvis (James D’Arcy) head to Los Angeles to investigate the mysterious Isodyne Energy. Investigating Isodyne puts the super-spy in direct conflict with the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of longtime Iron Man villain Madam Masque played by Wynn Everett.
In a recent interview with CBR, Agent Carter showrunner Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, explained that Isodyne Energy will allow them to tie the show both to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the upcoming movie Dr. Strange.
From the CBR interview:
When asked if Isodyne Energy is connected to the Darkforce, Fazekas answered affirmatively. “Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab — all of which were in L.A. in the ’40s, and were developing the space program and were developing nukes,” explained Fazekas. “That’s what Isodyne is, and what you’ll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb — and one of these tests didn’t go as expected. You’ll learn more about that in Season 2, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they’ve never seen it before they just name it Zero Matter. That’s our tie-in to the ‘Doctor Strange’ universe, and also to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ because you’ve seen it in ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ as well.”
Agent Carter returns with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, January 19, at 9 pm ET/PT on ABC.
