Agent Carter Has Found Its Villain For Season 2 and it’s a 1940s version of Madame Masque. Executive producers Tara Butters and Chris Dingess talked about it during an interview with slashfilm
“I think we’ve changed the look of her a bit obviously. We’ve made her an actress, which is very Hedy Lamar. She was a ‘40s siren actress who was also a scientific genius, so that’s part of what we’re mining with this character. For me it is, because I feel like that is something that… as much as there are not enough female heroes just on television, I feel like having a female villain is just as equally powerful.”
Butters and Dingess also talked about the setting and the transition made for season 2 From 1940s New York City to Los Angeles:
“It was something we had talked about in the middle of the first season, just because there are so many fun stories we thought we could tell. But then actually as the season progressed, we realized that not only was it a good idea for the storytelling, but also the idea that for the physical shooting, it’s much easier for us to shoot L.A. for L.A. than try to shoot L.A. for New York. So it served two purposes.”
Agent Carter season 2 will air in January 2015.
