Marvel has announced that James D'Arcy has been added to the cast of Agent Carter, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off focusing on SSR operative Peggy Carter.
D'Arcy has been cast as Edwin Jarvis, the butler to Dominic Cooper’s Howard Stark. In the show, Jarvis will be an ally to Carter, helping her as she embarks on missions for the SSR.
If D'Arcy's character sounds familiar to Marvel fanboys, it's because because J.A.R.V.I.S. is the name of Tony Stark’s artificial intelligence in the Iron Man and Avengers films, voiced by Paul Bettany. Edwin Jarvis was Tony’s butler in the comics, but he will serve that role to the elder Stark in the upcoming show, which kicks off this winter.
Jarvis’ inclusion in Agent Carter is an important piece of the puzzle in Tony Stark’s history, and could help to reveal more of the Stark family’s past before the Avengers sequel debuts on May 1, 2015.
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
