‘What If…?’ Director & Head Writer Want Hayley Atwell To Land A Live-Action ‘Captain Carter’ Film Franchise

Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter was first introduced back in Captain America: The First Avenger and is a character that keeps chugging along, despite her death in Captain America: Civil War. Appearing in Avengers: Endgame and will have a reoccurring role in the animated series What…If? in subsequent seasons.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, What…If? head writer A.C. Bradley and director Bryan Andrews are now supporting the idea of Atwell getting her own live-action films as Captain Carter. Hopefully, they’ve extended this desire to Kevin Feige and the team at Marvel.

“I know A.C. and I feel totally the same in this, and while we don’t know if this is necessarily going to happen, it would be amazing if they would just do a Captain Carter movie. Just get Hayley Atwell in the suit, give her her own franchise and just have her blow doors like hells to the yeah.”

The Ronin echoed our own desire last week about Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter leading her own team, a Multiverse version of The Invaders, for a live-action project.

To be fair, this ultimately might not happen as James Gunn has had some issues trying to get a Ravagers and Drax/Mantis series going at Marvel Studios in the past. So, it’s possible unless Captain Carter is a big part of the studio’s future plans we might not see her outside of animation leading her own adventures.

We can hope that Atwell gets more projects thanks to The Multiverse allowing Peggy Carter to return for things other than a third season of Agent Carter, which is the least likely thing to happen as Marvel Studios has indicated all Marvel Television projects fall outside of the main MCU canon.

There are already unconfirmed rumors Captain Carter might be appearing in upcoming films. However, her lengthy production shoot on Mission: Impossible 7 (spanning a year and a half) and eventually shoot for Mission: Impossible 8 might be a problem with her showing up in a significant way.

I guess we’ll have to be patient and see if Marvel ultimately uses Captain Carter on the live-action side of things.
