Agent Carter Season Two Will Have A Subtle Link With Doctor Strange Movie

Season two of Agent Carter will have a rather unexpected link to Doctor Strange. The series will introduce a company called Isodyne Energy and Agent Carter showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have revealed to Comic Book Resources that it’s a company with a “dark” secret.


“Basically, Isodyne is a company that we invented based in part on real life companies like Radiodyne or General Atomic or the beginnings of the Jet Propulsion Lab, all of which were in LA in the ’40s, and were developing the space programme and were developing nukes,” says Fazekas. “That’s what Isodyne is, and what you’ll learn is they were involved in the nuclear testing out in the desert when they were testing the, at the time they were calling it the atom bomb – and one of these tests didn’t go as expected. You’ll learn more about that in season two, but they stumble upon what people in the Marvel Universe will know as Darkforce, but because they’ve never seen it before they just name it ‘Zero Matter’. That’s our tie-in to Doctor Strange and also to SHIELD because you’ve seen it in SHIELD as well.”

Darkforce powered the villain Blackout in the season one Agents Of SHIELD episode “The Only Light In The Darkness” but don’t expect it to have the same properties in Agent Carter.

“The cool thing about what we learned as we researched Darkforce over the course of Marvel comic book history is, it affects people in different ways,” says Fazekas. “It’s created a bunch of superheroes; it’s created a bunch of villains; and it has all these different properties. It could be a liquid, it could be a gas, it could be a solid, it could give you powers, it could kill you. It has a lot of different applications, which was cool for us. We were able to select what we liked and sort of make our own rules as to what it does, how it operates, and who it affects in our world.”

Agent Carter premiers in the UK on FOX UK on 28 January.
