Joe Quesada dircting Slingshot

Over the last few years, Marvel has used the winter break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a spot to air new, short seasons of other properties. The benefactor of this break was Agent Carter, but its time came to an end after two seasons. This opened the door for new possibilities, which is what allowed Marvel to announce that Elena 'Yo-Yo' Rodriguez (Natalia Cordova-Buckley) will get her own digital mini-series. The premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot is approaching quickly - as Marvel ventures into uncharted waters in distributing content that exists within the MCU continuity.

While the series is meant to explain Yo-Yo's life in between season 3 and 4, it will also bring in other familiar faces. Every major S.H.I.E.L.D. cast member appears to have a role in the upcoming Slinghshot series, but they will not be the only familiar Marvel names attached to the series. As it turns out, the mini-series was able to get Joe Quesada as its director.

IGN made the announcement with a video interview of Cordova-Buckley, Clark Gregg, and Quesada himself, with each talking about the experience of working together. Quesada's history as an artist shows with his detailed storyboards for the Slingshot digital series - and even though this is not Marvel's most significant property, it says a lot that this is the project that Quesada will use it to make his directorial debut.
