Marvel's What If... to Show Peggy Carter as Captain Carter
When What If... hits Disney+ in 2021, it'll feature some familiar faces, including Agent Carter alum Hayley Atwell. In fact, Atwell will be playing a different version of Peggy Carter in the time-bending series. Footage released earlier tonight at D23 Expo showed Peggy Carter being transformed into Captain Britain-like character called Captain Carter.
Here's a footage description from ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis, who's on-site at D23 all weekend:
"The footage sees Iron Man, Hulk, Thor and several key MCU momnents. Jeffrey Wright narrates how time is a rison of endless possibilities. In animated form, Captain America goes in to get his super soldier transformation but the room explodes. Star-Lord is someone else. Bucky and Cap fight on a train -- because Cap is a Marvel zombie. Peggy Carter gets the super soldier treatment. She is Captain Britain. She stops a car with the shield and flips it over her. THe Watcher is shown. Comic-loke panels make-up the What If...? logo with images from episodes."
Last year Atwell seemed a bit hesitant to reprise her role as the pre-SHIELD special agent.
"If I had the opportunity again to play her, I would have to feel that there was an appropriate development and something more than I've already done," Atwell said at a press event last year. "It's a bit of an anomaly to revisit characters as an actor."

Jordan), Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Thanos (Josh Brolin), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Nick Fury (Samuel L.
