Following the poster that debuted yesterday, Marvel Entertainment and ABC have released the first official plot synopses for the first two episodes of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” which will air back-to-back when the series premieres. The first episode, titled “Now is Not the End,” is described as follows:
“Peggy is contacted by old acquaintance Howard Stark 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.”
“Now is Not the End” was written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and directed by Louis D’Esposito. The second episode, titled “Bridge and Tunnel,” is officially described as follows:
“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?”
“Bridge and Tunnel” was written by Eric Pearson and directed by Joseph Russo.
Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is executive produced by Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.
