Agent Carter Said Goodbye to Marvel-Verse and Isn’t looking Back

The British-American actress Hayley Atwell, well known for playing Agent Carter used to mention good-bye to Peggy Carter and Marvel Studios when the TV display’s purple slip arrived.

The 36-year-old actress, who got hooked on theater growing up in inner-city London, the on screen love interest to Captain America, said for her recent, critically acclaimed performance on the BBC One-Starz collaboration “Howards End”.

Atwell played Agent Peggy Carter, a no-nonsense British WWII officer and Captain America love interest whose initial appearance in the first Captain America movie was so well-received that she was eventually rewarded with her very own small-screen spin-off, ABC’s Agent Carter.

“That was just a job to me,” informed Atwell at a New York City bar remaining month “I put as much into her as I have into ‘Black Mirror’ or any kind of my stage work. It just happens to become special because, when you’re in a franchise like that, it has more commercial interest”.

When asked being back to the cinematic universe in light of that shocking “Avengers: Infinity War” ending, she said, “to get a call now would be like, ‘Oh, God! I’m sure anything could happen, but it’s this genre world that’s so multifaceted it’s like, will it ever die?

While she’s been somewhat hesitant to let go, Atwell tells the reporters that she’s still gunning for an Agent Carter movie and the actress isn’t afraid to move on.

Talking about Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and his associates, she said, “I really like them, and I love the way they made me feel safe and also empowered, that’s the best thing to come out of it. It’s not this kind of scary, patriarchal, dominant, body-shaming Hollywood sphere machine. It was just really nerdy guys who love what they’re doing”.
