Will there be more Peggy Carter in the near future?
In Marvel’s upcoming animated series, What If…?, it has been confirmed that Hayley Atwell will be voice acting. This has driven fans to hypothesize about more appearances from Agent Carter in the near future.
However, Hayley Atwell voiced her opinion regarding her character’s conclusion, affirming that she is content with the ending given to her character.
In an interview regarding her experience playing Agent Peggy Carter, with The Hollywood Reporter, Hayley Atwell admitted, “I feel really fulfilled. It was a great time, and I think they ended it beautifully with Endgame.”It feels like a fitting end to that narrative. I’m a classically trained theater actor so I want a stab at the challenging parts in the canon for theatrical actresses. That’s something that I’ve always aspired towards. So, I feel lucky to have played her, but she’s one aspect of my career. She’s one part that I’ve played.”
“With every job that I’ve done, I’ve taken the job because I’ve seen something within the character that I’d love to explore or try and be challenged by. With a leading part, it requires a lot of my focus and passion, but it’s the same focus and passion whether it’s Peggy Carter or it’s Rebecca West in Rosmersholm on stage, which I just finished. It’s the same curiosity to see what each character’s world is,” supplemented Hayley Atwell.
Marvel’s Agent Carter was critically acclaimed and had an ardent following, although the audience was not very large. Conclusively, this led to the end of the series.
Hayley Atwell was moved by the fans overwhelmingly positive response towards her character, and she mentioned she is deeply grateful for their support.
“What’s remarkable is that this is a couple of work days for me,” Hayley Atwell affirmed. “I’ll do half an afternoon on Endgame, or then you’re in the studio for a couple of hours on What If…? Because so many fans love this franchise, it’s so much bigger than the time that affected my actual life, which is a remarkable thing.”
