Agent Carter returns for Season 2 Tuesday night for 10 new episodes that take Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to Los Angeles for a new adventure that begins with a very strange murder case.
On a visit to the set of the show, Agent Carter executive producers Tara Butters, Michelle Fazekas and Chris Dingess discussed some of the new elements in Season 2, including an expanded noir-feel and Marvel comic elements like the Darkforce and Whitney “Madame Masque” Frost.
With the show’s move to 1947 Los Angeles comes a natural shift into more of a noir-influence.
Fazekas: We talked about L.A. a lot in the first season. I think because when you’re talking about telling stories in the 40s, and a lot of the film noir of the 40s takes place in L.A. And obviously, we shoot in L.A., so it had been something that we talked about a lot. And we started to build a story around that because what’s great about that is you have the glamour and the glitz of Hollywood, and you have crime and corruption right next to each other. And so we just started to say, well, how would we get Peggy to L.A, obviously, is the first question. And how much time has passed between the first season and the second season? And because there’s been a lot of time between the first and the second season airdates, we wanted to sort of show, okay. Time has passed. People are in a little bit of different positions. And things have happened between the seasons that we maybe don’t know about.
After an initial announcement that it was finally coming to North America last year, NCSoft’s kung fu-focused massively multiplayer game, Blade & Soul, goes live for all players today. But according to the publisher, the content at launch is just the beginning of what North American players be able to access in 2016.
While Blade & Soul has run a series of betas and provided early access to some players, today will be the first time players can access two “epic” difficulty dungeons meant for players at the level 45 cap. These dungeons are Blackram Supply Chain and East Fleet Supply Chain. They will have a six-player normal difficulty setting as well as a four-player hard mode, where enemy attacks will no longer be telegraphed.
