Hayley Atwell with Kenneth Choi and Neal McDonough, playing their Captain America characters Agent Peggy Carter, Jim Morita and Dum Dum Dugan will appear in a 1940s-era flashback kicking off the September 23rd season premiere of the ABC series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Back in the day, Carter was an integral member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. prototype group Strategic Scientific Reserve and her path was similar to that of Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who must now rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up after the seismic events of last season.
"Coulson is a big student of history and wants to return to those old ideals of Agent Carter's time,"
says executive producer Jed Whedon. "He's, like, 'Let's be the S.H.I.E.L.D. we were meant to be!' He wants to do the job right this time."
No word yet if either Kenneth Choi or Neal McDonough have signed for the Agent Carter series.
