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.

She plays a big role in my story..my fantasy story...okay,it's a porn story.
GetsugaTensho22 - 4/19/2013, 4:17 AM
Probably another DVD-exclusive short like the Agent Coulson ones.
CarlXVIGarfield - 4/19/2013, 4:25 AM
I hope it's a WW2 flashback pre-title intro that ties in with something crucial in the present day story.
marvel72 - 4/19/2013, 4:34 AM
invaders movie?
MrLoki - 4/19/2013, 4:38 AM
I really like her, she is a great actress.
A spin-off movie will never happen, of course, but maybe some one-shot short film for CA:TWS blu-ray?
Kayo - 4/19/2013, 4:39 AM
this girl is a hotty.
mgeoff88 - 4/19/2013, 4:55 AM
Hayley Atwell kicking ass as Peggy Carter again... [frick] Yeah! Seeing just how badass Peggy is sounds awesome!

I think the short will be about what happened to Peggy after Captain America was presumed "K.I.A."

I also want to see Hayley Atwell play Lara Croft! If MGM sees the Marvel footage, they better call her agent. That would be the perfect test reel for her as Lara Croft.

A WWII one shot for one of the Dvds would be great. Let's hope the Howling Commandos are in it. They really got the short end in First Avenger.
jimoakley666 - 4/19/2013, 5:37 AM
A Cap 2 flash back? Or the SHIELD series?
MarkJulian - 4/19/2013, 5:41 AM
Could also be for the SHIELD series. Interesting thought.
capcyclopsftw - 4/19/2013, 5:44 AM
Where does it say "action heavy"?
NeoBaggins - 4/19/2013, 5:55 AM
I liked her in TFA, but a spin-off sounds painful. A girls gotta dream.
MarkJulian - 4/19/2013, 5:59 AM
When she says that 'whatever this is' will show off what Peggy is really capable of, I don't think that means she'll be sitting around drinking tea and eating biscuits.

@Nibs
With respect. Go [frick] yourself you misogynistic blinkered mouth breather.

In other news... this sounds interesting :)
BloodyHell - 4/19/2013, 6:14 AM
peggy is sweet, awesome
lntrn8 - 4/19/2013, 6:21 AM
controversial love scenes please
SupermanReturns2 - 4/19/2013, 6:23 AM
That woman has "IT"!!
superotherside - 4/19/2013, 6:24 AM
Cool. Can't wait for more Peggy, and a huge yes to her as Lara Croft!

dellamorte1872 - 4/19/2013, 6:29 AM
@DARTH - YOU are a dick. sorry nibs opinion makes you angry but you had to get personal and try to start shit? he just commented on her post and everyone was thinking similar i'm sure A PEGGY CARTER SPIN OFF wont ever happen. nibs commented on HER statement and you get pissed enough to say something? that's what the comments section is for. writing your opinion just b/c you disagree for whatever pathetic reason you have (maybe you masturbate to her). so you take offense. lol you're an immature prick lol
DefcoN - 4/19/2013, 6:31 AM
Oh I know what she could do to me any day now :)

Now seriously, I'm glad she is still involved in some way, she's a fine actress.
DarthMauve - 4/19/2013, 6:46 AM
@dellamorte1872
Oh the irony of your little tirade. Actually it was less about his opinion (which he's entitled to) and more about the 'slap the bitch' comment, thought I'd throw some unwarranted aggression right back at him.

Also don't lecture someone on being immature when you put two 'LOL's' in one sentence.
Fogs - 4/19/2013, 6:58 AM
Hayley FTW, she's cute, hot and an awesome girl.
Fogs - 4/19/2013, 7:00 AM
But no Peggy spin-off.
NeoBaggins - 4/19/2013, 7:13 AM
lol@nibs Hilarious. You pissed off the White Knites with that one.
gambgel - 4/19/2013, 7:20 AM
a one short would be cool, definetly.

I honestly feel like her role on Cap1 wasnt as great as it could have been, but she did a good job
DarthMauve - 4/19/2013, 7:22 AM
@NeoBaggins
Yup I respect women, guilty. So that comment I'll take right on the chin.

Dammit, I hope Gusto doesn't read that :)
dellamorte1872 - 4/19/2013, 7:53 AM
yes. lol - is text speak b/c i was laughing at you. funny how you try to redirect your anger towards me after you called someone out. and i guarantee you, he will never meet ATWELL or "slap her" so you're "tirade" WAS indeed quite immature especially b/c you needed to TRY and redirect your frustrations and make the attempt of alleviating you're ire. freedom of speech.....it is a bitch!
OrgasmicPotatoe - 4/19/2013, 8:03 AM
I'm sure she already has all the skills she needs to impress me.
DarthMauve - 4/19/2013, 8:07 AM
Internet tough guys for the win!

Hilarious :)
Minato - 4/19/2013, 8:21 AM
How can u not love CA:TFA?
DarthMauve - 4/19/2013, 8:34 AM
@Hush2010
Those that don't love CA:TFA are clearly dead inside. The film had problems and fell a little short but it had heart. Great Movie.
SCURVYDOG619 - 4/19/2013, 8:48 AM
Hmmm...Howling Commandos short with Peggy and ORIGINAL Nick Fury,perhaps?
GreenRageMonster - 4/19/2013, 8:57 AM
If she is alive and young in CA-TWS; i will be like WTF, that doesn't make any sense
pedroparker - 4/19/2013, 9:20 AM
she is not my type
Inhuman - 4/19/2013, 10:25 AM
First of all a spinoff, zzzzzzzzzzzzzz boring. Absolutely not....... second, if they wanted to do a marvel one-shot of peggy carter then yea thats fine
HeadPool420 - 4/19/2013, 10:42 AM
Shes a good Peggy! But she aint no Peggy Bundy!!!!
ChaosLord - 4/19/2013, 11:50 AM
INVADERS!!!! HELL YES!! To all my fellow Invader fans thanks for reading my mind!!! Im even a fan of the Liberty Legion! KICKA@$$!!!!!
Bigred20 - 4/19/2013, 12:30 PM
maybe a short film that shows what peggy went through between the first avenger and the avengers and/or TWS?
Durf - 4/19/2013, 1:12 PM
Sounds like a One-Shot featuring her on a mission(with the Howling Commandos?) possibly. I'd be down for that
