Hayley Atwell Not Playing "Old Peggy" In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Hayley Atwell Not Playing "Old Peggy" In AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

The other day Hayley Atwell revealed, Joss Whedon had written in her into Avengers: Age of Ultron. For those of you hoping she would be battling Ultron and his minions with her walker, you would be wrong. No, "Old Peggy" will be in the Avengers sequel.

MTV's Kevin P. Sullivan was in the Comic-Con press room and did a quick interview with Hayley Atwell. There, he asked her about her Avengers: Age of Ultron role which she recently announced. She told Kevin that she will not be seen as the present day "Old Peggy" in Avengers 2 - as she was in Captain Ameria: The Winter Soldier. The safe bet, 'Peggy Carter' will be used in a flashback sequence. Last we saw of 'Peggy' she was in a retirement home suffering with alzheimers. Last we saw of 'Peggy' she was in a retirement home suffering with alzheimers.

The role was a last minute addition. Joss and Hayley had gone out for drinks and during a conversation he suggested he write her into the flick and she eagerly accepted.

Time Gem? Flashback?
DefcoN - 7/25/2014, 5:43 PM
Oh, flashback. Even better.
NightWatcher - 7/25/2014, 5:45 PM
Nice, now we get young Peggy and Bond!

NovaCorpsFan - 7/25/2014, 5:45 PM
Flashback. Maybe Jim Hammond is involved.
MrLoki - 7/25/2014, 5:48 PM
Flashback. Or Ultron is manipulating Steve's mind and makes him imagine Peggy.
Bekss - 7/25/2014, 5:48 PM
The Vision giving Cap and Peggy an illusion so they can have their dance before she dies
ALegendaryPanda - 7/25/2014, 5:48 PM
DAMN... I was really looking forward to an Old Peggy vs Ultron fight scene :(
DannyRand1225 - 7/25/2014, 5:49 PM
the report awhile back was that it had her and Steve had a ballroom and that Paul Bettany was there too..i think its a dream sequence..in order to dimantle the team..maybe Ultron sends Vision to take care of the avengers and maybe Vision puts Cap into a virtual thing or something
MrBlackJack - 7/25/2014, 5:58 PM
I knew it!

*snaps fingers*

If it's a flashback I bet she died and it's Steve remembering her. Or it could be part of the rumored time travel plot.
NightWatcher - 7/25/2014, 6:04 PM

My God! Somebody post that article! ;)
Kingdork - 7/25/2014, 6:11 PM
Nice alzheimers joke there ^^
TheMadman - 7/25/2014, 6:12 PM
The irony of repeating the line about alzheimer's...
GliderMan - 7/25/2014, 6:12 PM
She'll die, somehow due to Ultron? That way they wouldn't really have to show her. But yeah, I think that flashback sequence is Scarlet Witch getting in his head.
ComradeGrey - 7/25/2014, 6:14 PM
Okay, seriously, I know CBM is a tabloid but the spelling and grammy here is [frick]ing awful. So much so in fact that you're often saying the opposite of what you mean to.

"No, "Old Peggy" will be in the Avengers sequel."

This is read as "No,(with the comma making it an independent clause) "Old Peggy" WILL be in the Avengers sequel."

Shit on a [frick]ing biscuit, did any of you even finish grade school?

"on a role" is not the same thing as "on a roll"

HAHAHA Alzheimers jokes are so [frick]ing funny. It's not like it's a horrible neurodegenerative disease that robs people of themselves and their families in the final years of life.

You guys may get the scoops the fastest but jesus-fish-[frick]ing-christ have a little journalistic quality.

iFightForTheUsers - 7/25/2014, 6:16 PM
Maybe Ultron finds a way to get in all of their heads and Cap's sequence has to do with Peggy?
Jakewyatt - 7/25/2014, 6:16 PM
Good call bekss
SauronsBANE - 7/25/2014, 6:19 PM
I'm not much of a stickler for fixing accidental typos and all that, but this time I gotta agree with ComradeGrey. In this case, it completely changes the meaning of the article in the teaser. And Alzheimer's jokes are NEVER in good taste. You'd think the site that suffered through the internet-wide embarrassment of that certain "satirical" article would know better by now. CBM has its reputation for a reason though, I guess.
UltimateCookie - 7/25/2014, 6:22 PM
Most likely a flashback or a apparition. However, if Hayley can be young Peggy in the current timeline that would be dope/
Wannabe - 7/25/2014, 6:24 PM
This article is a mess. Please fix it.
AsgardianHobo - 7/25/2014, 6:25 PM

Nope. At least as far as I know
Gmoney84 - 7/25/2014, 6:25 PM
Jarvis will be Howard Starks real life butler. Tony creates the AI Jarvis based on the real dude from the 40's.
antman8o8 - 7/25/2014, 6:27 PM
Honestly that's good. She's served her purpose for these movies. Bring on Sharon if anything or HELLO Ms. Marvel. Whedon is saying there are 4 prominent female roles I hope the last one belongs to Carol Danvers already!
MattMan - 7/25/2014, 6:27 PM
ParisSun - 7/25/2014, 6:27 PM
That's great.

Now I will have to agree with some of the others on the heading. I normally could care less. But man that was awful. It took me a few reads to figure out that you meant "old Peggy" would not be in AOU.
GliderMan - 7/25/2014, 6:29 PM
@HarrowingGreen What Hulk attacking Leviathan rumor? Did you mean Black Widow?
GliderMan - 7/25/2014, 6:30 PM
@TexasTwoFace Yes, Siri.
IrenaH - 7/25/2014, 6:32 PM
Those quotes we've gotten about Scarlet Witch being in tune with "parallel worlds and parallel times" and being able to "get inside your head" makes me think she'll be responsible for making Steve see Peggy (assuming Peggy does appear in a hallucination/flashback that is).

I heard ages ago that there was some sort of post WW2 scenes involved. Must be where peggy comes in which is awesome. Old peggy dying would have been sad
Null - 7/25/2014, 6:45 PM
In CA:TWS I was in awe of that scene. I didn't know they used motion cap.
dethpillow - 7/25/2014, 6:45 PM
@IrenaH - yes, that would be really cool. possibly something like Ezio is saying too.
DIrishB - 7/25/2014, 6:51 PM

"The Vision giving Cap and Peggy an illusion so they can have their dance before she dies"

That'd be brilliant. Both very touching and a nice wrap up to that lingering plot thread.
UltimateCookie - 7/25/2014, 6:52 PM
Agreed. I would love Steve and Peggy to finally have their dance. I might shed tears if that happened.
SuperCat - 7/25/2014, 6:54 PM
No elderly tig ol' bitties? Sweet!
ComicsBornAndBred - 7/25/2014, 6:58 PM
Flashback!!!! Pics displayed a dance scene between her and Cap
dethpillow - 7/25/2014, 6:58 PM
it's weird when you think about what that actually means for Ultron. He lives in a place that's got nothing to do with the physical world. like how McWeeny said that thing about the fight spilling from the virtual world into "reality".

and we associate "virtual reality" with hokey things like oculus rifts and Tron and the Matrix and stuff. but if you really imagine it, it's not even anything like the world. why would it be patterned after the physical world?
in stories it just always is becuz how else do u tell that? I guess maybe if Ultron was created out of Tony's image, then it would make sense that he would envision his own world in terms of what Tony could reference. I suppose that's the answer why. but if you pull that veil out of Ultron's head, and just imagined it completely purely, it's just really trippy. what the hell does that even mean?

and then the weirdest thing is when you realize that there's no difference between Ultron and us. we have control over our bodies and we have brains. but our brains are just translating something weird into things that we can understand. and then if you ripped that veil of a brain out from us, we would be dead, but what would be there around us? u know? it's really strange to think about.

i think that's a big part of why we don't understand time. and how consciousness actually creates the world as we know it. lots of scientists seem to say things that are kinda pointing towards this. but it's just so incomprehensible to us. but it's why there's no such thing as time travel. cuz time isn't possible to travel thru. it'd be like saying, i'm gonna travel thru magnetism now. or travel thru gravity. there's no such thing really as that.

I don't think Avengers is gonna mess with stuff that's too complicated, but Ultron is just a weird character, and I hope at least some stuff like that is dropped around just to trigger some tripping out by people over it.
dethpillow - 7/25/2014, 7:03 PM
that's what has always bugged me about how when people are like... time is the 4th dimension...
i don't buy that at all.

"Last we saw of 'Peggy' she was in a retirement home suffering with alzheimers. Last we saw of 'Peggy' she was in a retirement home suffering with alzheimers."

I don't know if that was intentional or not but that is hilarious.
