Season 2 of What If…?, by Marvel, will again feature Captain Carter (played by Hayley Atwell). The information was confirmed by Brad Winderbaum, one of the executive producers of the project at Disney+, through a virtual press conference.
“From the beginning, we realized that she was a character that became very important because she was just Captain Carter,” he explained. “In Season 2, she will be the one we revisit to go on a new adventure,” he said.
The character, which corresponds to the protagonist of the first episode of season 1, will converge with the specific plot of Steve Rogers as Captain America. Peggy Carter first appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, released in 2011. Developing her own narrative, she was at the helm of the Agent Carter series on ABC between 2015 and 2016.

In this animated anthology, set to premiere on August 11th on streaming, many possibilities will be explored from facts already known to the public. However, the characters will appear in different contexts from their originals, culminating in something quite innovative.
