There’s a universal truth acknowledged by Marvel fans, and it has to do with Peggy Carter’s screen time. Hayley Atwell brought the red-lipped heroine to life in the first Captain America film, and the MCU has brought Peggy in for various cameos since. And, thanks to a Twitter post, fans think the SHIELD founder is prepping for another big screen outing.
Fans began buzzing about Peggy’s possible MCU return after a curious photo of Atwell was shared online. The co-president of Marvel Studios posted a picture of himself with Atwell, writing, “Look who came by to visit today.” Louis D’Esposito uploaded a second photo of them together in front of a mural of the Howling Commandos.
“Standing in front of my favorite murals with one of my favorite people, Hayley Atwell,” the co-president wrote.

While the pictures might have been taken during a social call, fans are thinking it’s more likely business was on the pair’s mind. Fervor surrounding Peggy has yet to die down since her solo outing with Agent Carter got abruptly cancelled, and the MCU has a few films in store which could benefit from the character’s presence.
In fact, there are at least three films which would suit Peggy just fine.
Today marks the first day of filming on the long-awaited sequel to Ant-Man. Marvel Studios confirmed production on Ant-Man and the Wasp is underway, and it is possible Atwell could take part in the feature. The first Ant-Man movie began with a flashback sequence that featured Peggy with Hank Pym back in the day, so the sequel might nod back to that era as it continues to explore the original hero’s past.prevnext
Captain Marvel To The Rescue
Back in July, fans were informed of an important tidbit regarding Captain Marvel. The female-led superhero film will see Brie Larson suit up as Carol Danvers, and the feature will be set squarely in the 1990s. Thanks to its backdated setting, Captain Marvel has ever opportunity to bring back Peggy as she’d still be alive during the feature. Captain Marvel is also set to rope in Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, so fans are keen to see if the original SHIELD director interact with her predecessor.prevnext
Thanos & The Infinity Gauntlet
Peggy has been ushered into the MCU for various reasons, but Avengers: Infinity War could use the heroine for one heart-wrenching purpose.
Much like how Scarlet Witch used Peggy against Captain America in Age of Ultron, Thanos could do the same with Peggy in the third Avengers film. The Mad Titan will be looking for ways to break Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and Steve would combust if Peggy were revived by an Infinity Gem. The resurrection would hit Captain America hard in the wake of Peggy’s death, but there is also a chance such a return could be done corporeally. Should Steve die in the third Avengers film, it wouldn’t be strange for the hero to pass away thinking about his lost love, and fans would be left in tears over the sob-worthy hallucination.prevnext
