Agent Peggy Carter strutted her stuff at Comic Con this year, with some impressive announcements. Agent Carter originally appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger as a progressive female soldier and love interest for the titular character. In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we learned that in the absence of Captain America, Carter was part of the establishment of SHIELD. Marvel’s Agent Carter will take place between those 2 events. Hayley Atwell reprises her role as Peggy Carter, with the series taking place in 1946.
The Comic Con panel for the series broke the news that the 2nd and 3rd episodes of the series will be directed by Joe and Anthony Ruso, who directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While episode 4 will be helmed by Captain America: The First Avenger Director Joe Johnson.
Marvel’s Agent Carter will air between the 2 halves of season 2 of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. The show is written and produced by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters (Reaper).
