SDCC: Captain America Directors Joe Johnston And Joe & Anthony Russo To Direct Agent Carter Episodes

Marvel Studios announced today, from a panel at the 2014 Comic-Con: International San Diego, that Captain America: The First Avengers director Joe Johnston and Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo will each direct an episode of Agent Carter.

The Russo brothers will direct the series’ third episode, while Johnston will follow with episode four. Agent Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell, played a major role in Johnston’s first Captain America film, as Steve Rogers’ ass-kicking love interest. She played a smaller role in the Russo brothers’ sequel.

Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb also revealed that the series will take place in 1946, but will have significant ramifications for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the present day.

Agent Carter is set for a midseason premiere on ABC.
