Hayley Atwell would only return to Agent Carter on a few conditions

Hayley Atwell has revealed what Marvel would have to offer to lure her back to her Agent Carter role.

The actress played Peggy Carter in two Captain America films as well as a spin-off TV series, Agent Carter.

Speaking at a Q&A panel at ACE Comic Con Seattle, Hayley said she would only put her uniform back on if she was offered something new for her character.

“I think the main thing, though, is if it were — if there were interest in Netflix or in her being in a film or something — that it would have to feel… it would have to feel right,” she said.

“I wouldn’t want to go over old ground. It would have to be new, there would have to be higher production values so she could do more. I’d have to feel like it’s not just, you know, ‘a case a week with Peggy Carter’.

“If she’s had an impact on audiences, let that impact grow, so it delights them, but I think it should be to do with more of the current climate now. What are smart issues to bring up? How to create any sort of kind of social weight, an emotional kind of gravitas to the show,” Hayley added.

“So I think on the principle of it, if somebody approached me with it, I would be appropriately kind of tentative about it, because I would go, ‘Well, but, you’ve got to convince me of why we need this, and what for, and how is this a development of the two seasons that we’ve done?’

“So that’s more of the question — I’d just want to do something new with her.”

Hayley added that she was so grateful for the opportunity to play her character for such a good chunk of time, adding: “Well, I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to play a beloved character for so long, as is. It’s very unusual.

“I wouldn’t have thought starting off in my career that that would happen. You do one character for however many months, and then you go and do the next.

“So I think it’s an unusual position to be in — it would be very unusual to have the choice to do that again.”

Agent Carter seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
