Hayley Atwell Confirmed for ABC's and Marvels 'Agent Carter' ?

Today Mirror UK announced that Marvel has landed Hayley Atwell to reprise the role of Agent Carter in ABCs Agent Carter! Agent Carter is a period TV series that will follow the events of the Marvel: One Shot Agent Carter and the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D:
“This is a massive deal for both Hayley and Marvel comic fans. It’s Marvel’s major project of 2014, and it will be a big budget production. Hayley is absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity and is incredibly grateful to Marvel fans who have basically been campaigning for a spin-off show for the past six months. It means moving to LA for six months but her friends and family are all behind her, and this is a huge opportunity."
  Hayley Atwell adds about coming back as Peggy Carter...
"The one-shot was so successful, the fanbase were like, ‘We want more of Peggy! I think Marvel probably take that very seriously, and it’s certainly something I would be a part of doing. I’d be interested to show different sides of Peggy. Although she’s kick-ass, and she can be aggressive and just as competent as the men, it’d be nice to show that she’s a feminist in a way. It’s not just about her being aggressive and as aggressive as the men in those action sequences, but being able to be a little bit more rounded as a person.”
This will be the second Marvel show on ABC. Again its a prequel to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It is expected be out Fall 2014
