On top of that, Marvel has released synopsises for the first two episodes, “Now Is Not The End” and “Bridge And Tunnel“, which will air back-to-back in a mighty two-hour premiere for US viewers.
“Now Is Not The End” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and directed by Louis D’Esposito:
Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger“) when he is framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons and can trust no one else. To help Peggy clear Stark’s name, he insists his butler, Edwin Jarvis, be at her beck and call–whether she likes it or not. But the risk is great: If caught, Agent Carter could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison…or worse.
“Bridge And Tunnel“, which will air immediately after, was written by Eric Pearson and directed by Joseph Russo:
Howard Stark’s deadliest weapon has fallen into enemy hands, and only Agent Carter can recover it. But can she do so before her undercover mission is discovered by SSR Chief Dooley and Agent Thompson?
So far, there have been no news regarding when Marvel’s Agent Carter will air in the UK. It seems like it would be a good move if Channel 4 were to pick up the series after the success its sister show Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD has brought the broadcaster, but nothing has yet been confirmed.
On the other hand, the show could still pull a Constantine and upload episodes to a UK streaming site like Netflix or Amazon Prime soon after each has premiered in the US.
Marvel’s Agent Carter starts in the US on 6 January on ABC. You can buy Captain America: The First Avenger on Blu-ray for £9.50 from Amazon.co.uk. For more on Marvel, check out the 100 All-Time Greatest Comics bookazine!
