The MCU's Multiverse arc opens a lot of possibilities for characters who want to debut or return to the mega-franchise. One of them is Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter, who was widely rumored to join the MCU in future projects as Captain Carter.
Captain Carter first appeared in Disney+'s animated series, What If, voiced by Hayley Atwell herself. Although What If doesn't really do anything with the real MCU Universe storyline, surprisingly, Atwell's Captain Carter officially returned in the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Despite having a significant amount of screentime, Atwell's return as the female counterpart of Captain America and a founding member of the Illuminati was glorified by the fans. While fans continue to wonder if the character is back for good, a new report by DisInsider's Derek Cornell claims that a Captain Carter series is being developed under Marvel Studios.
See The DisInsider Show's report below:
"Hot off of Doctor Strange 2 and What If…?, we are hearing not for sure if it's a series, but we're hearing a Captain Carter live-action series," Cornell said. "Series or movie, but something is in the works, live-action will be coming."
It would certainly be fun to see Captain Carter in future MCU projects. However, now that the vibranium shield was handed over to Sam Wilson, this might confuse the fans on who is really the successor of the Captain America mantle.
For now, we don't have much information yet about the Captain Carter series. But with Phase 4 revolving around the Multiverse, where infinite possibilities exist, Hayley Atwell could still return as Captain Carter. After all, after being easily annihilated by Wanda in the Doctor Strange sequel, Marvel Studios might give the character some justice.
You can catch Hailey Atwell as Captain Carter in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, still showing in theaters worldwide.
