In an interview posted today at Digital Spy, actress Hayley Atwell commented on the news of Marvel looking to do an Agent Carter spinoff television series. She mentions that fan reactions to the Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter that was released with the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray release has been really positive and that fans want more of Agent Peggy Carter.
Atwell goes on to say that is certainly something she would like to be a part of, to show different sides of Peggy. She continued:
“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.”
Atwell added: “I think she could be a great role model and a great member of the Marvel Universe.
In a time that many are wondering where the leading Marvel female heroes are, an Agent Carter series, even if on TV, would go a long way to help build the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And with Hayley Atwell saying it would be nice work with Marvel again, I think they should be jumping all over this opportunity to build upon. (Source: Digital Spy)
