Hayley Atwell Confirms 'Peggy Carter' Will Return In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

There were already reports that she was spotted on The Avengers sequel's set, but Hayley Atwell has confirmed that we'll indeed see Peggy Carter on the big-screen again after she hits the small-screen

Hayley Atwell is gearing up to start shooting Marvel and ABC's new Agent Carter TV series, which will center on the 1940s character she first established in Captain America: The First Avenger and later fleshed out in Marvel's Agent Carter short film. However, after she hits the small-screen next year, Atwell will follow up her Captain America: The Winter Soldier scene on the big-screen with a role in Avengers: Age of Ultron next summer. The English actress told Entertainment Weekly mag' that her inclusion in Marvel's most highly-anticipated sequel came about during an evening with writer/director Joss Whedon. "We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you,'" she says. "And I was like , 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'" Obviously, Hayley Atwell couldn't reveal details about her presence in the sequel or whether she'll appear in a flashback, and/or play the elderly Peggy Carter in present day a la The Winter Soldier. However, set reports back in April claimed she and Chris Evans had filmed scenes inside London's Rivoli Ballroom, where there were several "Lindy Hop dancing" extras.

You may also recall back in 2012 Joss Whedon revealed that one of the best scenes he wrote for The Avengers was a "beautiful and poignant scene between Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter," which took place in the present. Evidently, the scene didn't make the final cut and was never filmed because the writer/director felt the scene was "killing the rhythm" of the superhero blockbuster. In retrospect, it was probably for the best, but perhaps, Whedon has incorporated that scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Anyhow, regarding that ballroom scene filmed in London, Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans were supposedly joined by Paul Bettany, who plays The Vision.  What do you think?

Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015.

So that was the pic where evans and thor are standing in her house again.
JorL5150 - 7/21/2014, 4:48 PM
She's Tony's mom.

Talk about Oedipal complex....

Flashback/memory Cap recalls of better times. Sharing a lovely moment with Peggy. I also feel like it will reveal some old HYDRA info...maybe display Baron Von Strucker (if he's long lived). Who knows... Also heard that Paul Batany was involved in the scene and possibly Howard Stark. Interesting. Maybe Jarvis was an old friend of Howard's whom Tony names his AI after in the future. Maybe the humanoid Torch Howard had at the expo resemble this human Jarvis and then Vison Of the future is molded after the humanoid cyborg Torch

Now if we don't get this many news from other studios in comic-con I'm gonna be dissapointed.
PAF - 7/21/2014, 4:49 PM
YES! Love me some Atwell.
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/21/2014, 4:49 PM
Hayley Atwell is drop dead gorgeous
Lizardking310 - 7/21/2014, 4:49 PM
Why? Her and Steve had a great scene already in winter soldier. Don't need to see that again !
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/21/2014, 4:49 PM
And talented
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/21/2014, 4:51 PM
Her And Evans have great chemistry why not build on it and display it more?? Unlike Thor and Jane, they have a good romantic story that makes sense. I like their chemistry just as much as Tony and Pepper.

Not to get all nitpicky @DCMF, but doesn't the Agent Carter TV show come out before AOU? Wouldn't the tv show be her next appearance before AOU?
Ramiel - 7/21/2014, 4:51 PM
The more Atwell, the better.

DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 4:54 PM
Hayley Atwell is awesome..i still remember the whole thing of her touching steves chest when he becomes infused with the SS serum..she actually did that reactively..she didnt expect Chris Evans to have that kind of Body for the role and wanted to feel if it was real or something, haha, love her and i remember the report being that steve and peggy were at a ballroom, dancing and that Paul Betany was there too, since it has now been revealed that Vision is "TEAM ULTRON" as Whedon put it, maybe to put steve out of commision, he puts in a sleep like state where he dreams of peggy and steve having their dance
FordEl - 7/21/2014, 4:54 PM
Why? I like her but it sounds so unecessary

JoJo1982 - 7/21/2014, 4:55 PM

Sony and Fox has been pretty hush mouth so far
Wannabe - 7/21/2014, 4:55 PM
So is this film going to have some more character development rather than slug fests? If so, hell yeah.
ruadh - 7/21/2014, 4:55 PM
Not surprising, with their 40's scenes.

AlexanderLykins, I'd say we'll get that next year at the soonest.
Destined - 7/21/2014, 4:56 PM
@ComicsBornandBred you have no idea what other would give to have Peggy in present day MCU with Steve where she belongs. And Chris and Hayley are gold together le sighs...
DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 4:56 PM
Bekss- i dont expect Sony to have anything,maybe Fox will have FF as a surprise, WB and DC will have a short teaser for Batman V Superman and they will confirm their dc movie lineup
DeusExSponge - 7/21/2014, 4:57 PM
Man Comic-Con better not be like this years E3 where all the surprises are announced before the event and there was basically nothing left for the event!
Destined - 7/21/2014, 4:57 PM
Meant *I* would give...
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/21/2014, 4:58 PM
Nice. She's probably going to die which will lead Steve on an emotional path.
AlexanderLykins - 7/21/2014, 4:59 PM
Only the good stuff!
AlexanderLykins - 7/21/2014, 4:59 PM
MCU news just keeps rolling in. How long before we get Black Panther confirmed?

At this point before Comic Con
Scorpion8125 - 7/21/2014, 5:01 PM
I want to die during my H Atwell lap dance.

DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 5:01 PM
man, when it was revealed that she had Alzheimers, i couldnt control myself, Steves reaction was so sad, its like he had been through this before
AlexanderLykins - 7/21/2014, 5:01 PM

ruadh - 7/21/2014, 5:02 PM
Thedarkknight1939, more likely she gets a flashback cameo.
GeekyCheekyChic - 7/21/2014, 5:02 PM
If she dies ill cry more than I did during Winter Soldier.
DannyRand1225 - 7/21/2014, 5:03 PM
MrCBM56 - 7/21/2014, 5:03 PM
@0megaDaGod the scary thing is.... They are.
ruadh - 7/21/2014, 5:04 PM
Alexanderlykins, just being realistic. They'll probably anoince Strange and a new sequel officially, but probably nothing else this far out.
DCMarvelFreshman - 7/21/2014, 5:04 PM
@Pheezmatic You're absolutely right. I was under the impression that Agent Carter would premiere in the fall, but I was mistaken. Thanks for the heads up.:-)
