Hayley Atwell recently returned to Marvel to voice Peggy Carter in the first episode of the new animated series What If...? The episode asked the question "What If... Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?" and saw Peggy taking the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers. Last month, Peggy received her own episode of the Disney+ recap show, Marvel's Legends, and fans were disappointed that it included no footage from her short-lived series, Agent Carter. However, the site just added the Peggy-led short, Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter from 2013. Surprisingly, after less than two weeks on Disney+, the short film has already been removed.
In the short, "British operative Peggy Carter joins the nascent SHIELD organization. As she searches for the 'Zodiac' key, Agent Carter also battles her misogynistic, bureaucratic boss, Agent Flynn." It's currently unclear why the One-Shot was taken off the site so soon, especially considering Disney+ still has All Hail the King, the One-Shot starring Ben Kingsley as Iron Man 3's Trevor Slattery. That short was also added recently in honor of Kingsley's return for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Thankfully, Agent Carter is still available to watch on Disney+... for now.
Hopefully, the quick removal of the Peggy Carter One-Shot isn't an indication that Marvel is further distancing itself from any non-Disney+ series. Considering Agent Carter's James D'Arcy made a surprise appearance in Avengers: Endgame as Edwin Jarvis, it's hard to imagine they plan to start pretending the show never happened.
