Hayley Atwell confirms Winter Soldier return for Peggy Carter….

April 19th, 2013 by Marc Comments

While Captain America was not our favourite Avengers movie it did have some great things. One if these was Peggy Carter, played by the lovely Hayley Atwell..

Well the guys at Comicbookmovie have some exciting news for fans of the actress/character. The actress has been chatting about her role in the upcoming Captain America sequel, The Winter Soldier and has revealed some interesting little tidbits: “They’re so tight, the Marvel family, and private. I can say that I am involved in some way in the second one. Just know that it’s not me being cryptic, it’s Marvel. They can just as easily kill me off if I threaten to tell the story before it’s time. They’re keeping it all under wraps.”

However, while cagey to talk about the movie she did tease about a new project involving Peggy that she’s Woking on: “There’s been an online campaign for Peggy to be featured. People really liked her. So Marvel have made sure that as part of ComicCon there will be a little kind of snapshot as to what Peggy’s actually really capable of, which was finished here and which was great fun. Hopefully, it will lead to other things.”

we’re guessing this is one of the Marvel shorts – like A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Thor’s Hammer and the others – featuring her after she lost Cap in the first movie. But could this lead to a standalone movie?: “I’d revisit Peggy again. She’s pretty uptight. I’d like to, if I get a spin-off, definitely add a bit of humour in there. She’s very British. Very uptight. Let’s hope if she gets a spin-off it’s modern day, so she can relax a little bit, let go of the uniform.”

So what say you all? Would you like to see more of Peggy (Behave)? Let us know in the usual ways…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
