“I remember when I was filming it, the prop master had put a framed photograph on Peggy’s bedside, of Peggy with her husband and her children, and Louis de Esposito ran over just before we started rolling, going ‘Take that out. We don’t know yet. We don’t want to limit ourselves by kind of suggesting this is who she’s married’ and so that was taken out. And I thought, ‘OK, that’s really interesting.'”

The producer of the film, Louis de Esposito, removed the frame so they can create more possibilities in the future. The only information regarding Carter’s husband that the viewers got was that Captain America saved his life.

“I think what [Marvel is] so good at, they’re so good at giving the audience what they want and exceeding the expectations. And I think that’s why they’re always aware of just feeding the amount of information that the audience need to know, to keep engaged, but also delighting them and surprising them with, with new information.”

In the 2015 show, Agent Carter, Daniel Sousa was Carter’s love interest. However, the show was canceled and fans never got the full story.
