Originally posted 01/06/2015 05:30PM

Even with Avengers: Age of Ultron set to hit theaters in May, Agent Carter just might be one of Marvel's most highly anticipated offerings.

After the events of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, Agent Carter follows Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) as she navigates New York City in the 1940s as a double agent for the Strategic Scientific Reserve – a precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D.

As she undergoes secret missions for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) to clear his name, she is forced to overcome the endless obstacles put in front of her that come from being a single woman in the 1940s. Meanwhile, she continues to mourn the loss of the love of her life, Steve Rogers.

The series, which premieres Jan. 6, follows Peggy's return to America from World War II and the events of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger.

Movie history proved golden at this year's Oscars – what with the winning The Artist and Hugo, as well as the nominated My Week with Marilyn – so, what's next?

How about a look-back to Tinseltown's glorious and goriest past with Scarlett Johansson and Anthony Hopkins, who are set to costar in the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, reports Variety.

Johansson will play leading lady Janet Leigh, who took the screen's most famous shower in the 1960 classic of its genre. James D'Arcy (Madonna's W.E.) will play Anthony Perkins, whose acting career never quite recovered after he was typecast as Norman Bates, a motel owner with something of a mother complex.
