Hayley Atwell On What it Would Take for Her to Play Peggy Carter Again

Posted by July 31, 2018 Comment

If there is one thing that almost all Marvel fans agree on it’s that Agent Carter was cancelled way too soon and that we’d all love to see it return. As early as this year, when ABC cancelled Roseanne, there was a group of fans asking the network to bring the mini series back.

Hayley Atwell is appearing in the upcoming Disney film Christopher Robin and Screen Rant asked her if she ever missed playing Peggy Carter.

Do I miss it? Well, I’m slightly divided because as an actor you give what you can, you do your job to everything and every character you play and some are going to have more impacts than others and this within the Marvel world has had lasting impact because the nature of the franchise being a very expansive and ongoing thing, and that’s really wonderful, and I’ve met a lot of fans of the show and to be the kind of custodian for that period of time for Peggy Carter is lovely. If there’s going to be one character that follows me around out of all the characters I’ve played she’s the one that is the most palatable, kind of meat of everyday life to be associated with. But I think I wouldn’t want to kind of… if I had the opportunity again to play her then it would have to feel that it was an appropriate development and something a lot more than I’ve already done.

So it wounds like Atwell would be willing to return to the role as long as it was something new. Whether or not that would be a third season of the show or maybe a role in a movie it really isn’t clear but considering how quickly fans jumped on the opportunity to bring back the show.

Summary: Working-class family man Christopher Robin encounters his childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life.

Christopher Robin is directed by Marc Foster, stars Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Jim Cummings, Chris O’Dowd, Toby Jones, Peter Capaldi, and Brad Garrett. It will be released on August 3rd 2018.
