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. That’s Mission: Impossible 7, for those keeping track at home, and while it’s rare for a franchise to feel like it’s at its peak after half a dozen films, last year’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout was such a high point that we’re completely amped to see what Tom Cruise and director Chris McQuarrie do with it next – and Atwell has us even more excited for it.

Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter

Hayley Atwell was on a Television Critics Association panel for her new series Conviction, just after ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey spoke about the decision not to move forward with a third season of Agent Carter. After the panel, Atwell spoke with reporters about her feelings about Agent Carter and gave us hope of seeing Peggy Carter again. She was prepared to do both shows if ABC would let her.

“I think they would have figured something out in terms of making a special or waiting until we finish this season and then me doing something else with another network perhaps,” Atwell said. “All I’m saying with that is it’s still a much-loved show for the people involved in the making of it and we know that the fans, it has a special place in their hearts. That’s something that I would be very happy to go back to if the opportunity came.”  Read More »

New Marvel Studios Logo

ABC has been wanting to expand their Marvel slate. Marvel Television developed a pilot for Marvel’s Most Wanted, a spinoff featuring two characters from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) were even written out of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to set the stage for their own show. However, ABC ultimately decided not to order Marvel’s Most Wanted to series. Should it fail to find another home, could Palicki and Blood return to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

“Interesting question, one that Marvel’s probably best positioned to answer,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said during the panel. “The characters were sort of disavowed in the show as they call it, but I never underestimate Marvel’s ability to bring people back.”

Dungey also touched upon the decision to cancel Agent Carter, teased other Marvel ABC shows in development, and discussed the Castle cancellation. Read More »

Captain America Steve and Peggy

Steve and Peggy’s romance was one of the very best things about Captain America: The First Avenger, a bittersweet subplot that humanized one of Marvel’s most unfailingly noble heroes and gave us one of the franchise’s greatest heroines. Alas, their love story ended when Cap crashed his plane into the ocean. By the time he emerged from his Capsicle coma 70 years later, she was an old woman with a failing memory.

So in Captain America: Civil War, he finally moves on… with her much, much younger niece Sharon (played by Emily VanCamp). Their romance is possibly the worst thing about Captain America: Civil War, a half-hearted flirtation that culminates in a tepid kiss. And it turns out Aunt Peggy doesn’t approve either. Recently, Peggy Carter herself — well, actress Hayley Atwell — joked that this was the kind of “disrespectful” relationship could drive her character to supervillainy.  Read More »
