Is Peggy Carter Getting Her Own Short Film?


Captain-America-Peggy-Carter-Hayley-AtwellWhile it’s still unclear as to how Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter character will fit into the upcoming Captain America sequel, a part that is still a rumor at this point, it is still fairly likely that she will show up in some fashion. Another rumor that has been floating around for some time, specifically since the short film Item 42 made its appearance, is that more short films from Marvel were in the works. That talk has simmered down in recent months, but with the news that Peggy Carter is the center of a new short to be shown at this year’s SDCC, you can expect more rumors to come about.

While chatting with The Age (via BleedingCool), Atwell remained secretive about her involvement in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as can be expected. However, she did drop this little bomb in regards to the aforementioned short film.

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.

Pretty straightforward news there. Obviously, Marvel hasn’t said as much as a peep in regards to this news and I don’t really expect them to, unless it’s to vehemently deny it only for it to actually happen in a few months. A film like this would be a great tie-in to the upcoming The Winter Soldier film and could also be a filler story in regards to what happened with Peggy after Cap went down in the plain crash, leading up to present times. Total and complete speculation there, but it makes sense…kinda. We’;; be sure to keep you updated as more news comes along on this front.

Meanwhile, filming on Captain America: The Winter Soldier began filming not long ago and is set for a release next summer. Would you watch a Peggy Carter movie, even if it is a short?
