Hayley Atwell Only Now Learned ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Ending – ‘Really’

One of Marvel Studios’ own stars still hasn’t seen the film

Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” has been in theaters for more than a month, but Hayley Atwell, who portrayed Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, still hasn’t seen the movie.

Speaking with The Huffington Post, Atwell was asked if her character, who died in “Captain America: Civil War,” could make a return in light of “Infinity War’s” ending that shocked fans around the world. Atwell replied with something shocking herself: She hasn’t even seen the film yet. And when the Huffington Post told her how the blockbuster ended, she responded, “Really.”

Ever since Atwell co-starred alongside Chris Evans in “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and then starred in her own spinoff TV show on ABC, “Agent Carter,” fans have been clamoring for her return to the franchise. “To get a call now would be like, ‘Oh, God!'” she continued. “I’m sure anything could happen, but it’s this genre world that’s so multifaceted it’s like, will it ever die?”

Though it’s not like she would hang up the phone if Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige came calling.

“I really like them, and I love the way… they made me feel safe and also empowered,” she said of working with Marvel. “That’s the best thing to come out of it. It’s not this kind of ― from my experience ― scary, patriarchal, dominant, body-shaming Hollywood sphere machine. It was just really nerdy guys who love what they’re doing.”
