While the panel was light on showing anything new, it sure wasn’t light on news. First up was Agent Carter and here is what we learned:
- They haven’t shot a single frame of the pilot yet but will take place in 1946 well after Steve Rogers has disappeared and we see Peggy picking up the pieces of her life
- Peggy Carter’s screen time in the pilot will equal her total screen time in both Captain America films and the Marvel One-Shot that became the basis for the series
- We were shown a teaser for the series but it was more showing clips of Peggy from the Captain America: The First Avenger film and the one-shot
- Lou Esposito who directed the One-shot will direct the pilot
- Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier will direct episode 2 and 3
- Joe Johnston, director of Captain America: The First Avenger will direct an episode
- No word on whether or not Dominic Cooper will appear as Howard Stark
- The show will also detail other women like Peggy in the show
- Also during the panel, three women dressed as Peggy Carter, came up in a row to ask a question much to the delight of Jeph Loeb.
Now onto Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Nothing new was shown as the show only just started filming this past Thursday but we got shown a pretty funny blooper reel, which you can see over at Entertainment Weekly.
- Lucy Lawless will play a long-time SHIELD vet called Isabelle Hartley who likes to keep a knife by her side
- STRIKE’s Luke Hunter will be joining the show and will be played by newcomer Nick Blood. Luke is a mercenary and not a SHIELD agent but gets recruited by Coulson
- The big bad will be a character called Daniel Whitehead, a HYDRA baddie and will be played by Reed Diamond
- The cast didn’t seem open to a redemption arc for Ward, where we saw a scruffy looking Brett Dalton on stage.
- We also saw a video featuring Patton Oswalt as Billy and Sam Koenig that hints that we will be seeing Barbara Morse aka Mockingbird on the show.
Agents of SHIELD will return on ABC on September 23, 2014 at 9pm ET/8 pm CT while Agent Carter will premiere sometime in 2015.
