Yes, we pretty much assumed this was a done deal ages ago, but it’s good news regardless.

Though considering Marvel recently told us actor James D’Arcy was set for Agent Carter as Howard Stark’s butler,  Edwin Jarvis, it’s pretty silly this announcement comes afterward.

Marvel writes:

Cooper first played Tony Stark’s father in Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” before returning for a cameo at the end of “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter,” and now Cooper will reunite with star Hayley Atwell for “Marvel’s Agent Carter.”

“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell, follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”

We got our first teaser of Atwell’s performance in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of SHIELD last week, are you stoked for more?
