AVENGERS: ENDGAME Writers Think a Captain America and Peggy Carter Film or Series is a Possibility
For those of you wondering if there could be a series of adventures that include Captain America and Peggy Carter, the writers of Avengers: Endgame think it’s a possibility.
Before I dive into this, I’m going to throw up a spoiler warning just in case some people still haven’t seen the movie yet.
As you know, Peggy Carter appeared in Avengers: Endgame and Steve Rogers went back in time to the 40s, married her, and lived a long happy life with her. A lot of fans have wondered if we might see a film or TV series that show us what kind of adventures they had together.
When asked by Fandango about the possibility of a TV show or movie for these characters, Endgame writer Christopher Markus said:
"Possibly. I think maybe all I did was Steve was a stay-at-home dad and Peggy went to work at S.H.I.E.L.D. I don't know that there were any adventures."
The adventures of Captain America Dad! Ok, it might not be the kind of story fans would want to see, all I know is that there had to be some adventures! It’s Captain freakin’ America and Peggy Carter! Markus seems to be showing a lack of imagination here.
When previously talking about Caps story arc in Endgame and why they didn’t end up killing him, McFeely said:
“From the very first outline, we knew he was going to get his dance. On a separate subject, I started to lose my barometer on what was just fan service and what was good for the character. Because I think it’s good for the characters. But we also just gave you what you wanted. Is that good? I don’t know. But I’ll tell you, it’s satisfying. He’s postponed a life in order to fulfill his duty. That’s why I didn’t think we were ever going to kill him. Because that’s not the arc. The arc is, I finally get to put my shield down because I’ve earned that.”
That being said, maybe Cap didn’t really do much. Maybe he was just a stay at home dad! He went on to say, Steve's arc is “about trying to find some personal life, you know? Like he's been a man for others for so long, when does he get to be a man for himself? And how is that not selfish? How is that just earned?”
So Steve Rogers found a way to find a life and it is a life that he so desperately wanted. I just can’t help but think that there’s a much bigger story to tell. Cap doesn’t seem like the kind of guy that wouldn’t get back into the action to help save people.
I wonder if he ever had any conversation with Howard Stark about his son Tony.
