First things first: Captain America’s Peggy Carter can definitely kick some grade-A ass.

You only need to see this brand spanking new clip from the new Marvel One Shot titled Agent Carter and you’ll know what we mean.

This new short film—which will be included in Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 Blu-ray and DVD release in September—features Captain America’s (Chris Evans) WWII lady love Peggy Carter (the wonderful Hayley Atwell) who literally kicks some ass in style (girl doesn't even break a sweat—or a nail) in this exciting new clip.

Have a look:

Agent Carter is directed by Louis D’esposito, the guy who also made the Marvel One Shot: Item 47. He also happens to be Marvel Studios’ Co-president.

Agent Carter— which also sees the return of Howard Stark played by Dominic Cooper—picks up where Captain America: The First Avenger left off. The spunky and fearless Agent Peggy Carter finds herself stuck working for a sexist boss by the name of Agent Flynn (Bradley Whitford). Peggy is put on the path of the mysterious “Zodiac” key and goes on a solo mission.

If it’s as cool as the Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg)-centric Marvel One Shot The Consultant, and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor's Hammer (and it looks like it might be), then we should be in for a treat!

What do you think? Are you looking forward to Agent Carter's solo outing?
