Hayley Atwell reveals plans for Peggy Carter One-Shot

Short film to be included on Captain America 2 DVD

Having had her role significantly scaled back for Captain America: The Winter Soldier , Hayley Atwell has frequently discussed her interest in exploring Peggy Carter further in a character-specific spin-off.

While that had initially sounded very much like a hypothetical proposition, it now seems that Marvel has been paying attention, and is set to bring Atwell's idea to fruition in a new One-Shot.

“Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards," revealed Atwell to The Big Issue , "so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically ‘What Peggy Did Next’. It will be shown at Comic-Con and be on the DVD extras of the second film."

Atwell is also set to reappear in the sequel itself, but presumably only in a handful of flashback scenes, with her relationship with Steve Rogers cruelly cut short at the end of the last film.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and co-starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in the UK on 4 April 2014.
