Hayley Atwell Wants Chris Evans To Return as Pro-Feminist Captain America in Agent Carter

Since we’ve first encountered Hayley Atwell’s Agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, we’ve adored her just as much as Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers has. And it was obvious why. Peggy, unlike other superhero leading ladies, was not a damsel in distress. In a male-dominated environment, here was a woman who had risen to a place of power. Now, this star of Marvel’s Agent Carter wants Chris Evans to return to the series as a pro-feminist Captain America. Here are the specifics:

The fifth movie in the MCU, Captain America: The First Avenger, featured a fan-favorite character for the audiences. Hayley Atwell’s portrayal of Peggy Carter in this movie became immensely popular, owing to the fact that she wasn’t your conventional hero’s sweetheart. Despite being regularly undercut by her male colleagues, Peggy was a no-nonsense SSR spy who could carry herself in any scenario. Marvel definitely knows that Peggy strikes a chord with a huge chunk of its viewership, as evidenced by her cameo appearances in movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, and Avengers: Endgame, as well as her own specialized 2015 spin-off show Agent Carter.

Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter make a good case for forming the top superhero love affair of all time. It’s a romance concerning loss and reconciliation that covers decades and even many timelines. One of the most endearing aspects of Cap and Peggy’s connection is that they always had photos of each other with them, even when they were parted by time. They both understood each other and were willing to aid one other in difficult times. Peggy assisted Steve in realizing his potential and saving Bucky and the other troops in The First Avenger. Even after they were away for quite a while, Peggy claimed Steve changed her life.

What Hayley Atwell said about Captain America:

Haley Atwell appears to possess a trait shared by many MCU performers, one that contributes to the popularity and enjoyment of the MCU  There is currently widespread conjecture regarding a Captain America and Peggy Carter team-up concept, in which Chris Evans dons the shield and accompanies Agent Carter on her adventures. It would be named ‘Captain America & Agent Carter’ and would most likely be a huge hit. However, this film or television show would seem like a sequel, extension, or remake of Steve Rogers’ narrative. Not Peggy Carter’s.

Now, Atwell is interested in seeing Steve Rogers’ feminist side as well as what Captain America looks like once he retires. Peggy will be able to thrive through her own show as a result of this. Peggy is one of MCU’s most understatedly iconic characters. Plus, she and Steve frequently appear at the top of the charts highlighting the world’s greatest couples. Also, given the success of programs like WandaVision on Disney+, the MCU is now in a position to tell a women-oriented tale. With SHIELD’s action narrative and Peggy Carter’s adventures, having Peggy explore issues of female empowerment seems to be on the table!
