Hayley Atwell Talks PEGGY CARTER TV Series

Last month we learned that Marvel and ABC are looking to develop another TV series together, this one based on Peggy Carter from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There was no indication at the time whether Hayley Atwell would be a part of the series. When asked about the new series when talking to Digital Spy, she said it is something that she would be a part of. 

"I read about that too. The one-shot was so successful, the fanbase were like, 'We want more of Peggy!.' I think Marvel probably take that very seriously, and it's certainly something I would be a part of doing. I'd be interested to show different sides of Peggy."

She goes on to talk more about the character, saying, 

"Although she's kick-ass, and she can be aggressive and she can be just as competent as the men, it'd be nice to show that she's a feminist in a way. It's not just about her being aggressive and as aggressive as the men in those action sequences, but being able to be a little bit more rounded as a person. I think she could be a great role model and a great member of the Marvel Universe. I love the Marvel lot, they're really great people to work with, so it would be nice to go back and work with them again. I'd definitely do it."

There's a lot of potential for a series like this. Peggy is a really interesting character, and I love the time period that she is set in. A lot of people seem to be excited for it, so I hope it happens!
