Hayley Atwell, who is perhaps best known for her role as Captain America’s lost love Peggy Carter in five Marvel Cinematic Universe movies (most recently “Avengers: Endgame”) and two seasons of her own spin-off series “Agent Carter,” has officially joined another long-running franchise – “Mission: Impossible.” Apparently she has chosen to accept it.
Writer/director Christoper McQuarrie, who is currently working on two follow-ups to last year’s brilliant “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (set for release in 2021 and 2022), announced on his social media channels that Atwell would be joining the team. He framed a black-and-white photo of the actress against the black “IMF” dossier made famous in the original 1960s TV series. (Atwell turned her entire Instagram feed into a giant mosaic of the same image.)
It’s unclear if Atwell will appear in one or both of the sequels but either way, we are deeply excited.
