The news came a couple of weeks ago that Marvel is toying with the idea of expanding their latest One-Shot short film “Agent Carter” into it’s own live-action television series. Little has been said about the project since then, but now star Haley Atwell says she’s behind the idea. Speaking with Digital Spy, Atwell had nothing but nice things to say about Marvel and what she’d like to see in the series should it come to fruition.
“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 aggressive and as aggressive as the men in those action sequences, but being able to be a little bit more rounded as a person. I think she could be a great role model and a great member of the Marvel Universe. 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.”
