hayley atwell mission impossible

Hayley Atwell, the once and future Peggy Carter actress in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is going to be joining a different cinematic universe of spies: she’s the latest addition to the next Mission: Impossible film.

With the release of It Chapter Two, director Andrés Muschietti brings to a close the saga of Stephen King’s 1,000-page horror novel. But could there be room for a third It movie outside of Muschietti’s two 2-plus hour movies? Star Bill Skarsgård thinks so.

MCU Kate Bishop

Looks like Marvel Studios just hit another casting bullseye: the company’s Disney+ series Hawkeye has targeted Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Bumblebee) to play the MCU Kate Bishop.
