Just when we thought we couldn’t possible be any more excited about Hayley Atwell’s new Marvel/ABC show Agent Carter, she has to go and be all adorable at SDCC and say words and now we want the show immediately.

Atwell and the creative team discuss Carter’s story and the show at length here, talking especially about what it’s like for Carter as a woman, who has to find her own way within the intelligence community once the men start returning from World War II. Marvel’s Agent M, Ryan Penagos, also gave us some deets on who will be directing the first few episodes of Agent Carter – including Lou D’Esposito (who directed the original Agent Carter one-shot), and Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors, the Russo Brothers.

If you can’t get enough Atwell (and we don’t blame you), here’s a peek at the Agent Carter panel from yesterday at SDCC.
