Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter, or simply Agent Carter, is a 2013 direct-to-video short film, and the third in the Marvel One-Shots series. It was produced by Marvel Studios to be exclusive on the Blu-ray release of Iron Man 3, distributed by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on September 24, 2013. It was directed by Louis D'Esposito, from a screenplay by Eric Pearson.
Agent Carter resulted in ABC commissioning the second Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series, also called Agent Carter. The timeline of the short film and the series greatly conflict with each other. Although the former has been confirmed to either to take place before or even during the TV series (the first episode even uses flashbacks to this One-Shot), they are both initially set in 1946, with the One-Shot dealing with S.S.R. Agent Carter dealing with the loss of Steve Rogers, and recruited to S.H.I.E.L.D. effective immediately, where as the TV series takes place between 1946-1947, with still S.S.R. Agent Carter dealing with and moving on after losing Rogers.
World War II has ended and Peggy Carter is stuck at her desk by her sexist boss, Flynn. When Peggy is alone at night at the office, she answers a call about the mysteries Zodiac, which she is sent to retrieve.

- The film follows the events of Captain America: The First Avenger.
- The short and the first season of the TV series, follow the same basic concept of trying to complete a mission assigned to her behind the back of the S.S.R., only with Howard Stark himself needing help, instead of some mysterious voice on a phone, and very different outcomes for Peggy.
