Hayley Atwell Talked About Where She Would Want To See Peggy Carter

Captain Carter first got introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s What If… which showed a version of the character who took the super serum instead of Steve Rogers. Her live-action debut came into being with the sequel of Doctor Strange. Her character was rather well-received and while Wanda kills her just as quickly, Hayley Atwell wanted more from Peggy Carter.

“It was definitely not, you know, the trajectory that I see for Peggy. I would definitely like her to have more to do. It’s so funny, because, you know, I did that 10 years ago, and I love her because I love the people, and you never know [if there could be more].”

While it is still unclear when Peggy Carter would return, the actress wants to see her character do more, fight more, and have a much bigger role within the MCU. Becoming a member of the Illuminati gave her a wider range of everything she can achieve in the franchise. Atwell stated that she would like to see where the character would go according to what Marvel and the audience would want.
