Stunning British actress Hayley Atwell has confirmed she’ll feature in the next Marvel One Shot, which fans will first have a chance at viewing at this years San Diego Comic-Con. Her character Peggy Carter, in Joe Johnson’s action adventure THE FIRST AVENGER, was the Nazi-stomping lost love to the Cap (Chris Evans). She’ll also return for the forthcoming sequel in a number of flashback sequences, while Rogers struggles to keep his hands of her niece, Sharon (aka S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent 13).
Here’s an update on the project from the actress herself:
Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards. So Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically ‘What Peggy Did Next’, which will be shown at Comic-Con and be on the DVD extras of the second film (Captain America: The Winter Soldier). So as well as doing a bit in the new film, I’ve got a whole new spin-off short film. It has been great to be back in training with the stunt coordinators, kicking some butt again.
We’ve also added a number of news reports and set footage from the currently shooting Marvel sequel, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, which sees the return of shield-flinging Avenger, Steve Rogers. This time he’s up against former friend Bucky Barnes, now resurrected as a deadly assassin by Frank Grillo’s new madman, Crossbones.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER is released 4th April 2014 and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Toby Jones, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan. It’s written and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.
