Agent Carter Declassified is back! Even better: Agent Carter is back! Or will be next January! Alex and I discuss all the Agent Carter news since the show was renewed, from the show’s upcoming  L.A. location, to Hayley Atwell’s recent comments about diversity, to Dubsmash!

Then we use Peggy’s cameo in Ant-Man to segue into a discussion about that movie, particularly its treatment of Janet van Dyne and Hope van Dyne. Our discussion  lasted more about an hour, but in an ant-sized nutshell:

Marvel knows that a lot of people want more lady superheroes. The Ant-Man movie makes that clear. But Marvel still doesn’t think that’s a good enough reason to make a lady-led superhero film. The Ant-Man movie makes that clear as well.

What did you think of Ant-Man? Let us know in the comments below!

    Great podcast as usual! I had a lot of fun listening to this. :) You mostly hit on all my feelings about Ant-Man. I thought it was funny and one of the better movies in the MCU but the lampshading got old. The opening scene with Peggy surprised me. I had no idea it was coming but I was so cool to see her running Shield!

    I definitely think you guys should do podcasts about Jessica Jones, either part of this series or in a new one. But I NEED to hear you guys talk about it. It’s only the second property in the MCU driven by a female lead and I think that makes it pretty darn important.

    Oh quick question,what it the music you use in this podcast? I want to find it. I think my mom would love it. :)
