Sounds Like We’re Getting a Peggy Carter Short This Comic Con



There’s been an online campaign for Peggy to be featured. People really liked her. So Marvel have made sure that as part of Comicon there will be a little kind of snapshot as to what Peggy’s actually really capable of, which was finished here and which was great fun. Hopefully, it will lead to other things. — Peggy Carter actress Hayley Atwell to The Age.

Marvel Entertainment has shown an interest in giving short films to secondary characters, and have already dedicated one to a fan favorite. Peggy Carter is a character who has yet to be given a kind of closure by either Captain America: The First Avenger or The Avengers (even considering deleted scenes), so it makes sense that they might give her some in a short. In the Age article the actress also confirms that she’d be totally down to play Lara Croft in a Tomb Raider movie, so that’s awesome.
