  • James D'Arcy played Sherlock Holmes in a made for TV movie, Sherlock. Robert Downey Jr., who portrays Howard's son Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the "modern day" Marvel/Avengers films, has appeared as Sherlock Holmes several times, including Sherlock Holmes and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
  • James D'Arcy was initially nervous about portraying Jarvis's comedic side, given his history of "predominantly playing psychopaths."
  • James D'Arcy and Dominic Cooper have both played Ian Fleming.

Hayley Atwell describes her character's elderly appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a benefit for the show: "We have an opportunity, if the show does go into more seasons, we know that we can explore all of these aspects of her character because we know she lives such a long life and she's had a fulfilled life. obviously, the era is 1946 but in the second, third, fourth, fifth season - if it goes onto that - we can explore different time periods. We can explore the late forties, the early fifties, the sixties, the seventies, the eighties, up until present day, so it's very exciting because of that."

  • James D'Arcy took care not to study the performances of Paul Bettany as Jarvis's successor JARVIS.
  • Cinematographer Gabriel Beristain used a combination of modern digital technology and traditional analog techniques to replicate the feel of period films.

  • In Season One, it is shown that the "Leviathan" organization in Russia has a training/brainwashing academy to turn young girls into lethal assassins. This story arc alludes to the training received by Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a. "Black Widow" of The Avengers who, in her comic book origins, was trained by the Russian KGB as a little girl in such an academy. In the Season One, Episode Seven story "SNAFU", Dottie Underwood, who has been revealed to be a Leviathan assassin, overwhelms SSR agents using the same stylistic fighting and acrobatics used by Black Widow. A comparison of skills can be made by watching Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) fighting in the current string of Marvel films (Iron Man 2 (2010), The Avengers (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), etc.)
  • The series features Edwin Jarvis, Howard Stark's butler and right hand man. Tony Stark (Iron Man) named his J.A.R.V.I.S. artificial intelligence program after Edwin Jarvis, and the program holds much the same role as Edwin Jarvis did to his father.
  • For her role as an undercover agent, Bridget Regan trained with a Tae Kwan Do expert and studied Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow choreography from the MCU films.
  • This series features Iron Man (Tony Stark)'s comic-book enemies, though here they are pit against Tony's father Howard and Peggy Carter:
    • Anton Vanko (the Crimson Dynamo) appears in the first season
    • Dottie Underwood is a Black Widow (it was originally a title in the comics, and Natasha Romanoff is the most famous lady to hold it)
    • Whitney Frost, known in the comics as Madame Masque appears in the second season.
  • Dr Ivechnco's plan is to use a gas designed by Howard Stark to make people want to kill each other. This is simmilar to Richmond Valentine's plan in Kingsman: The Secret Service, to make the population of the world kill each other using a free SIM card. Valentine is played by Samuel L. Jackson, who also plays Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to which Agent Carter belongs.
