There is a slight truth to the rumour that Haley Atwell would have a part in Ant-Man playing Agent Peggy Carter. Now it seems Marvel Studios are looking for a body double to serve as a stand-in for Atwell.
This further solidifies the rumour that Agent Peggy Carter will feature in a flashback sequence with Howard Stark and a young Hank Pym.
Project Casting are said to be looking for a candidate based in Atlanta as that is where the film is being shot: “Casting directors are looking for an actor to work as a stand-in for the actor Haley Atwell. Haley Attwell is 31, 5’7 and 112 pounds.”
They are also looking for another body double at 6’2” and 225 Ibs, so it is obvious that this is not a stand-in for Atwell: “NLC is looking for a body double….sizes are 6’2″, 225 lbs., Jacket 42R, Shirt, 16/34, Waist 34, Inseam 34, Shoe 13EE. We need you to come for a fitting at the studio in Fayetteville this afternoon or in the morning. Please submit only if you match these sizes.”
Ant-Man is due to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
