Actress Hayley Atwell is welcome to the idea of playing Captain Carter again for the MCU.
Even though Captain Carter has only been part of the MCU since August of 2021, Atwell has enjoyed a lengthy, although sporadic, tenure within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Peggy Carter, who she has portrayed at different ages and in different mediums.
After first playing Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers’ love interest, in Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011, her credits have included 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Agents of SHIELD television series, 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, her own Agent Carter solo series, and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.
During a recent appearance at AwesomeCon (via The Cosmic Circus), Atwell reveals that she wants to keep playing the role.
“Well…I haven’t got news for you. But I share your enthusiasm,” Atwelll shared. “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.”
Even though her character’s fate is pretty much clear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it would be relatively easy for her to come back as a variant from another part of Marvel’s multiverse.
