Captain America’s girlfriend Peggy Carter will be reunited with all three Cap directors on her new TV series.
Marvel has announced that three episodes of the new show Agent Carter will be helmed by Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston and Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Marvel Studios co-president and Peggy Carter fan Louis D’Esposito will direct the pilot episode, following his work behind the camera on the Marvel One-Shot short film Agent Carter that ignited interest in the series.
This may come as a surprise given the bad blood between Joe Johnston and Disney that’s a result of their bitter working relationship during the making of The Rocketeer back in 1991. It looks like those issues have since been resolved.
Hayley Atwell will be back to reprise her role, and the show will take place in 1946, chronicling the rise of SHIELD and the shadowy new version of HYDRA. It will premiere this December.
