Hayley Atwell Doesn't Believe We've Seen The Last Of AGENT CARTER In The MCU

While Marvel's Agent Carter won't be returning for a third season, Hayley Atwell is confident that there is far more in store for her character in the future. Could a movie be in the works?

While she started out as a love interest in the first Captain America film, Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter has grown into a much-loved and well-respected character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With multiple appearances in MCU films, Atwell went on to headline her own series, Agent Carter, which focused on the adventures of the character in the years after World War II. Unfortunately, the show was recently cancelled, despite a cliffhanger ending for season 2. Fans petitioned for a third season, but it doesn't seem to be in the cards, at least for the time being.

Speaking on a Television Critics Association panel for her upcoming fall show, Conviction, Atwell reiterated that she would find a way manage both series if ABC would allow her to. “I think they would have figured something out in terms of making a special or waiting until we finish this season and then me doing something else with another network perhaps,” Atwell said. “All I’m saying with that is it’s still a much-loved show for the people involved in the making of it and we know that the fans, it has a special place in their hearts. That’s something that I would be very happy to go back to if the opportunity came.”

Despite the show's cancellation, Atwell has been rather insistent with the Marvel higher-ups to continue with the adventures of Peggy, going so far as to suggest that they give the character a movie. “I’d love there to be,” she said. “I hound [Marvel Studios co-president] Louis D’Esposito on a regular basis saying, ‘Give me a movie.’ The great thing about Peggy is we know from The Winter Soldier that she lives a long life, so she can come back. I’m banking on when I’m in my 50s, let’s see what Peggy’s up to in this decade.”

Atwell clearly has a love for the character that's rare for actors, and remains insistent that we will see the character make another appearance, though she doesn't know when and where. “I don’t feel like I’ve said goodbye to her because she does still seem to live on a lot for a lot of the fans. Marvel is still such a big part of my career and I suppose my professional family that I would absolutely not rule out the idea of going back to Peggy at some point or seeing her in other avenues. I love her and I hope that she has a life elsewhere another time.”
