We always love spin-offs, aren’t we?
After the succes of the One-Shot in the Blu-ray edition in Iron Man 3, ‘Agent Carter’ has made us fall more in love with Peggy and Marvel knows it!
Hayley Atwell, 31 years old, who will appears in the big screen again on the second movie of Captain America, ‘The Winter Soldier’, in which she plays Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers’s main love interest – will soon start working on ‘Agent Carter’, a small screen spin-off which will air in the US.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ”This is a massive deal for both Hayley and Marvel comic fans. It’s Marvel’s major project of 2014, and it will be a big budget production. Hayley is absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity and is incredibly grateful to Marvel fans who have basically been campaigning for a spin-off show for the past six months. It means moving to LA for six months but her friends and family are all behind her, and this is a huge opportunity.”
Hayley has previously admitted she would be interested in starring in a spin-off TV show because she wants to show a different side to no-nonsense Peggy. She said: ”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 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 personally can’t wait to see this new spin-off, the big question now is, will Chris Evans make an appearance as Steve Rogers? In which time will they base Peggy’s story? Uh uh.. Wait and see…!
