Could Marvel do a Captain America and Peggy Carter series?


Avengers: Endgame writers fuel rumors that a Marvel show about Captain America and Agent Peggy Carter could be possible in the future.

*Spoiler Alert: The following article discusses the events of Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame in detail.

Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has left many questioning the mechanics of time travel in the film, especially after the denouement saw Captain America return to the past and start his life anew with Agent Peggy Carter. Though Marvel fans are divided over Cap’s decision, one can’t help but wonder what Cap and Peggy’s adventures would have been like.

Captain America heroically sacrificed himself at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger, leaving a heart-broken Peggy Carter to forge ahead against the systemic misogyny of her time. She obviously did plenty right, as Peggy helped create S.H.I.E.L.D. and managed to live a fulfilling life. So how did their lives pan out in the new timeline when Steve returned?

Now that there are so many new avenues for original Marvel content – Disney’s streaming service Disney Plus and the Marvel-Hulu partnership – could fans get a series featuring these two characters? Endgame writer, Christopher Markus, had this to say:

"“Possibly. I think maybe all I did was Steve was a stay-at-home dad and Peggy went to work at S.H.I.E.L.D. I don’t know that there were any adventures.”"

The thought of Steve Rogers kicking it back and watching his ‘best girl’ succeed is a delightful thought. In fact, it would make for an important and emotional mini-series were Marvel to ever go down that route. It’s not often male characters take a back seat to their female counterparts in genre cinema and a show about these two love-birds would be a refreshing change of pace. They could easily form a dynamic similar to the one Peggy had with Edwin Jarvis in Agent Carter, with Peggy on the front-lines and Steve helping her in the background.

ABC’s prematurely canceled Agent Carter series dealt with the discrimination of the early 50s, many aspects of which remains painfully relevant today. A series with Steve and Peggy could very well examine similar themes especially as Cap would have a modern perspective on the matter.

Both Cap and Peggy are fan-favorite characters, but it seems highly unlikely, though, that this show would ever come to fruition. Chris Evans has hung up the shield now that Avengers: Endgame has completed Cap’s arc. But never say never, especially with Marvel.
