On Wielding The Various Weapons In The Movie:

"I started off with a pistol and the director could clearly tell how much I loved working with it and said 'Oh just give her a machine gun' and I was like 'yes'! So I got to play with that for a few months. There's lots of action in it and I'd love to do more of it."


On The Character Of Peggy Carter:

"I think she's quite stubborn, a slightly frustrated woman who struggles with being a woman in that time. But more importantly she's a modern woman and she sees something in Captain America that she relates to, and becomes kindred spirits. He treats her very differently to how she's been treated by lots of men, in this kind of dominated world she lives in. So she's very much a fighter."


On What It Was Like To Work Alongside Chris Evans:

"Chris was a gentleman. He's, I imagine, got so much more pressure than any of us, but yet he's incredibly sincere in this part, and very charming without being goofy, and very earnest in a way. He's a very talented guy and very bright, so it was a real pleasure to work with him."


Many thanks to @WillKRoberts for the heads up!

With an all star cast which includes Chris Evans as Captain America, Sebastian Stan as Bucky, Hugo Weaving as Red Skull, Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Tommy Lee Jones as Col. Chester Phillips, Stanley Tucci as Abraham Erskine and Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark, Captain America: The First Avenger will be released in 3D on July 22, later this year!

Love her accent.
Chewtoy - 5/18/2011, 11:28 AM
Give her the Lara Croft role. She's got the look and accent, and likes guns. Where else are you going to find all that in a respected actress?

superotherside - 5/18/2011, 12:17 PM
finally some cap news!

@marto second that!
Fogs - 5/18/2011, 12:42 PM
@marto - I like this idea, with some makeup she'd be slightly different, and we could hear Steve calling her "Peggy", then feeling really stupid because of it. Then to break the ice he could say "hey, you know I've banged your grandma? What about it, huh?"
JackSass - 5/18/2011, 1:26 PM
what a babe
luckylu - 5/18/2011, 1:57 PM

Is it me, or do all these interviews all sound the same? "Pleasure to work with, very bright, very night". Yawn..
JackSass - 5/18/2011, 3:12 PM
It's not you... they coach them on what to say. They are told to never say anything negative and praise their peers and the director even if they suck.

That's mostly what you get in interviews with stars.

That doesn't mean it's always disingenuous btw.. but when it comes to CBM's it's a way for them to avoid giving away anything good or telling their personal feelings about it all.
eico11 - 5/18/2011, 7:07 PM
definatley a good actress and cast but still a little worried about johnson as director, am i alone here?
partyhands - 5/18/2011, 10:02 PM
Sharon Carter is Peggy's niece, c'mon people.
croniccris - 5/18/2011, 10:31 PM
@teabag haha thats hilarious!! nice work tea!
FrankGarret - 5/19/2011, 5:07 AM
Peggy is Sharon's aunt, not her mom or grandmom. Probably great aunt, by now. Peggy was infact, introduced AS Sharon's older sister and mostly intended as part of her background. I think this marks the first significant depiction of Peggy.

I'd love Hayley returning as Peggy. Though Kate Mara looks a lot like her, so that could work too. They could tie into her cameo in Iron Man 2.

Also, I'd hit that like .... Like... Like something that hits things with notability!

capcyclopsftw - 5/19/2011, 7:23 AM
FrankGarret - I love that idea of Kate Mara tying in.
JerBear - 5/19/2011, 7:50 AM
@Nephillim
She's not? Really? I mean... really? Are you... you know... on the down low? Everything about her is good looking.
