With the imminent release of Iron Man 3 on Blu-ray, fans will be delighted to know that it includes another Marvel One Shot featuring Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), the British agent who starred in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Agent Carter is set a year after The First Avenger. Peggy has been shifted to a different agency where her new boss, played by Bradley Whitford, aims to keep her chained to her desk, sending less capable but more male agents out into the field. However, Peggy receives a tip off and decides to chance it out on her own to follow it up.
Peggy Carter is by no means the only film character to suffer with an oppressive boss. Check out some of these unpleasant characters.
5. Billy and JD – Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle (also known as Harold and Kumar Get The Munchies) tells the story of two friends with a craving for the ultimate burger after a night smoking weed to relax after a hectic day.
Harold Lee (John Cho) is an investment banker. Quiet and unassuming, he’s an easy pushover for his bullying colleagues, Billy and JD, who tell him that he needs to do all of their work as well as his own so that they can spend the weekend enjoying themselves. Incapable of standing up for himself, Harold agrees, but when he gets home, the easily led Harold is persuaded by his roommate Kumar Patel (Kal Penn) to get high instead of working. When they decide they need a White Castle burger, the pair embark upon an adventure to tack one down when they discover that their closest branch has been replaced with the vastly inferior ‘Burger Shack.’
Featuring an hilarious cameo by Neil Patrick Harris as a fictionalised version of himself, the film was a major hit and is considered to be deceptively clever, despite its down at heel subject matter. There have been three films in the Harold and Kumar franchise, despite Kal Penn taking a break from acting to work at the White House.
