Hayley Atwell confirms Peggy Carter is in Avengers: Age of Ultron

07.22.2014

Marvel's multi-platform synergy between feature films and the small screen seems to be setting them apart from DC who will not mix films and television. With AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. already crossing over with THOR: THE DARK WORLD and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, there is no doubt ABC and Marvel will hook up to cross-promote the instant blockbuster AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

Hayley Atwell is already confirmed to headline her own AGENT CARTER series during mid-season in January 2015 which means it would be an ideal cross-over with AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Atwell even confirmed she will appear in the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly:

"We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you,'" she says. "And I was like , 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"

Reports have Atwell and Chris Evans shooting a scene in a dance hall with extras performing the Lindy hop which sounds like it would be a flashback scene or a dream sequence. Comic Book Movie says that Paul Bettany was in the scene as well but did not indicate if he was in character as The Vision. Whether this scene makes the cut or not will remain to be seen, but it would certainly be cool to see Hayley Atwell make her third Marvel feature appearance after knocking it out of the park as an aged Peggy in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. Check out her digitally-enhanced transformation in the image below.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON hits theaters on May 1, 2015.

I'm guessing that this is going to all be in Captain America's head. Probably a result of what Scarlett Witch can do.

See no reason why a female-led secret agent show set in WW2 couldn't be great, so hopefully they'll have some cool storylines planned out, presumably involving Hydra and maybe characters the films haven't used yet like Baron Zemo. There's scope for retro spy-tech and weaponry - could even have a Wolfenstein or Hellboy vibe to it - even if you're not sold on her character yet, the series has a lot of potential.

She was great in First Avenger and was disappointed we didn't see more of her in Winter Soldier. Was hoping for a dance with her and Steve to give them closure, but it now sounds like we may get it after all in Age of Utron.

Anyway, more Atwell and Agent Carter the better in my opinion. Can't wait for her show.

And speaking of flashback cameos and dream sequences, I would like to see Dominic Cooper make another appearance as Howard Stark in some fashion. To good of an actor not to

I don't know if she needs her own show, but as far as the Marvel females go in the MCU, other than ScarJo as Black Widow, Atwell has been the best. Then Paltrow. Portman and Hall are good actresses but aren't given much to do, same with the Sif girl. I wonder if Liv Tyler will ever return as Betty Ross, or is Marvel trying to distance themselves from The Incredible Hulk?

Im sorry, but this character does not appeal to me. Her having her own tv show is about as unnecessary as it gets, and if she never appeared in another marvel film I wouldn't ever think of her again. I really dont understand how she got her own television show.

Because she stole Captain Americas movie and then started in the best one shot Marvel has done. Fans love her and for good reason. It's not surprising at all she got her own show.

Lord - I have to agree with you. I don't hate her but I just don't care. They can put their time and money into another character.
I will give the show a shot tho as you never know.
