Default Re: Hayley Atwell/Peggy Carter back for Cap 2!

Love that it is coming with IM3. Gives me hope there will be some lengthy flashbacks in TWS involving Peggy as well.

She was the perfect female protagonist, and I hope future CBM leading ladies follow in her footsteps.

It's so unfortunate that her character has to be relegated to the past, however. I was probably among the few who wished they would just go the cheesy route and have her play Sharon Carter as well. In the end though, it's probably for the best they just give her character more focus in a spinoff rather than inventing a cheap workaround.
She is by far one of the things that has happen to the MCU. Hayley's performance as Peggy Carter was incredible, and you are so right. It is fantastic to see them acknowledge it.

Just love how Peggy's story is seemingly keeping the Indy vibe from the first film. Fits with the time period very well imo.
