Hayley Atwell Would “Definitely” Do An Agent Carter TV Show
Marvel is supposedly working on a TV show based on the recent Agent Carter short staring Hayley Atwell that was released with the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray. The series is looking for a writer and production is tentatively scheduled for early next year. We’d heard a few details about the possible show except for whether or not Hayley Atwell would even be up for doing a TV gig. Well the actress has finally weighed in on the prospect and it’s something she’d be really excited to do.
Speaking with Digital Spy, Atwell said she had read about the potential series and would definitely be up for reprising the role on the small screen:
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.
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 agressive and as agressive as the men in those action sequences, but being able to be a little bit more rounded as a person. 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.
Agent Carter is Marvel’s greatest one-shot success to date, and that’s saying something considering the others. With the rising popularity of Peggy Carter on the big screen, mixed with her upcoming appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it wouldn’t be surprising at all if Marvel cashes in on Atwell‘s rising star. What do you think about the Agent Carter show now that you know Atwell would be on board?
