Ever since she debuted in Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hayley Atwell‘s Peggy Carter became one of the fan-favorite characters, especially after making an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as a live-action variant of What If…?’s character Captain Carter. Although that variant didn’t last long in the movie, with the Marvel Multiverse, there’s always a chance that we’ll see Atwell in Captain Carter suit again, and Atwell now shares she’s eager to play the role she’s most famous for again.
“Well…I haven’t got news for you. But I share your enthusiasm. And I would love to if Marvel did find a home for her; that’s a home that feels worthy of her in terms of her evolution as a character and development as a character. […] The experience I’ve had in playing her has given me the most incredible opportunity to hone my particular craft in this franchise. And I’ve got more to do, and because I feel the fans deserve that. In some ways, with a lot of people, she’s a minor player, and it wouldn’t make sense if I was to continue to be a minor player in that if it felt like, well, this is a different time. And also particularly as a woman with everything that’s happened the last few years. When she says in her timeline, ‘I know my value and everyone else’s opinion; it doesn’t matter,’ that’s really good.” — Hayley Atwell at AwesomeCon (via The Cosmic Circus)
Atwell joined the MCU with 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger. She reprised the role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Avengers: Endgame, and earlier this year in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. She also starred in her own spin-off series Agent Carter for two seasons on ABC, and showed up in two episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Last year she voiced her MCU character in the animated series What If…?, and it’s expected that she’s going to reprise the role in the upcoming second season.
Next year we’ll watch Hayley Atwell as Grace in the upcoming movie Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One, and she’s already set to reprise the role in Part Two in 2024. Atwell was also confirmed to voice Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider animated series.
