Captain Carter was introduced to the MCU in the first episode of Marvel’s Disney+ animated series what if where Peggy Carter played by Hayley Atwell was injected with the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers and we got Captain Carter instead of Captain America.
Subsequently, she also appeared in the later part of the series before finally getting a live-action role in Doctor Strange: Into the Multiverse of Madness as a member of the Illuminati group in an alternate universe Earth-838. Along with her, the group also had Maria Rambeau’s Captain Marvel, Baron Mordo, Blackbolt, Mister Fantastic played by John Krasinski, and Professor Charles Xavier.
Although fans were very excited to finally see Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter in live-action, the joy was short-lived as she and her co-team members were quickly devastated by Wanda Maximoff in a way quite bloody. But recently in the SDCC, it is revealed that it was not the same character from what if who was bisected by her shield in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Talk to comicsWhat If director Bryan Andrews claimed it wasn’t their Peggy Carter but a variant:
“I think it’s important to point out that this is not our Captain Carter. This is a variant version.
Even series executive producer Brad Winderbaum claimed it wasn’t their Carter as if “It would have been their Captain Carter, so it wouldn’t have been so easy to take her down” which confirms that this character now has a long future ahead of her in the MCU.
