CAPTAIN CARTER Live-Action Series Rumored To Be In Development At Marvel Studios
Following the character's recent live-action debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a new rumour suggests Marvel Studios is moving forward with a Captain Carter TV series for Disney+...
What If...? kicked off with a stellar episode taking us to a reality where Peggy Carter became the First Avenger instead of Steve Rogers. With that, Captain Carter was born, though we're still a little confused as to why Marvel Studios hasn't given her the "Captain Britain" mantle. Perhaps that's something she'll gain in the live-action Captain Carter series rumoured to be in development?
The DisInsider broke the news, claiming that a show is in the works for Disney+. There's no word on who will write and direct the potential project, though Hayley Atwell would presumably return.
If this becomes a reality, it would be a fantastic female-led series to add to Marvel Studios' current streaming lineup. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness [SPOILER ALERT] killed the Earth-838 Variant of Captain Carter, so we're assuming she wouldn't be the lead of this show. It also seems unlikely that it'll be the animated Variant as her story looks set to continue in What If...?
Whatever the case may be, the Doctor Strange sequel proved just how awesome it would be to see Atwell kicking ass as Peggy, and this would be a major upgrade over ABC's short-lived Agent Carter.
As always, this is just a rumour, and even if Marvel Studios is considering a Captain Carter series, that doesn't mean it will eventually come to fruition. We're still waiting for Kevin Feige and company to make future plans clear, so fingers crossed this makes the cut in the next slate announcement.
