Marvel Unveiling Mystery Project At Comic-Con That Features An Action-Heavy Peggy Carter?
Hayley Atwell talks about Captain America: The Winter Soldier and hints at mysterious Marvel SDCC project that will show off what Peggy Carter can do. Visit our Captain America section for more Winter Soldier news.
In a recent interview with The Age, actress Hayley Atwell briefly discusses her role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The actress also hints that something was recently shot in the UK for her Peggy Carter character that will show of what Peggy's really capable of; Atwell says the footage should be unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con.
On her part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
Atwell: "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."
Hints that Peggy will be showing off what she's 'really capable of' in some mysterious footage at SDCC.
Atwell: "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."
On getting a spin-off for Peggy.
Atwell: "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."
On playing Lara Croft in Tomb Raider.
Atwell:"There's also some kind of online campaign for me to do Tomb Raider Reborn, which I know has just come out as a computer game. MGM have the rights to make it into a film, which would be fantastic to do because I'd get to spend a year of my life training hard and pick up all sorts of fantastic fun skills."
It's interesting that Atwell says that whatever was filmed for Peggy was shot 'here' with here being her hometown of London. Captain America: The Winter Soldier just started filming in Cleveland, Ohio a few days ago so it doesn't sound like it was scenes for that particular film. In all likelihood, this sounds like another Marvel One-Shot short film that could look to expand on the escapades of The Howling Commandos during the World War II era. Previously, Gabe Jones actor Derek Luke mysteriously hinted at a similar return for his World War II character. However, it's best to end this with the caveat that you can never say for sure what things are until they're officially announced, especially when it comes to Marvel Studios.
