CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Directors Tease AGENT CARTER Involvement
Anthony and Joe Russo are already hard at work developing Captain America 3 for a 2016 release, but they will first tackle two episodes of Agent Carter. They talk about that in detail here, as well as how they became involved and the benefits of a shorter season. Check it out!
It was revealed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo would helm the second and third episode of Agent Carter for ABC. It came as exciting news for the eight episode series which will help bridge the gap between the first and second halves of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In a recent interview with Collider, Anthony had this to say about how they became involved in the series and what they hope to bring to the table. "This is very much a baby project of Louis D’Esposito who’s one of the co-heads at Marvel. He directed the Marvel One-Shot that the series is based on, so he asked us. It’s kind of nice to get the people who have been connected to the Captain America storyline involved in helping to launch that show about a character who’s so critical to this universe."
As for how they feel about working on a show which consists of only eight episodes (although as True Detective and Fargo recently proved, that's more than enough time to tell a great story), Joe says, "[We] love that they’re doing a limited run of it because it’s easier to maintain quality over a lower amount of episodes. I think everything’s lined up for a really, really good show there." Anthony meanwhile, adds: "We’ve been saying this for years, because working in network television it’s so hard to deliver that many episodes; it’s brutal—especially with a show that has an ambitious production dimension to it. It’s crushing."
Talk then turned to just how much involvement they'll have with Agent Carter, and as you might expect, Captain America 3 is going to keep them so busy that they won't be getting involved in the writers room. However, Joe did reveal that, "There’s been a little bit of just general conversations about our experience in television and potential pitfalls, things to look out for. Creatively, Markus and McFeely are heavily involved, D’Esposito is heavily involved. We’ll get a script two weeks before we shoot and then we’ll give our input." They would then confirm that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston will indeed be helming the fourth episode. You can see the full interview by clicking on the link below.
