Thanks to the stories involved in Loki, Marvel Studios opened the book on the stories that could be told with the creation of the multiverse. That’s why the first season of What if…? introducing fans to new iterations of characters they’ve come to know and love over the past decade. That includes Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter, a version of Peggy Carter who took the Super Soldier Serum instead of Steve Rogers.
The character’s introductory episode was largely based on: Captain America: The First Avenger, and the second time we saw the character, she was in the middle of a scene straight out of the opening moments of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Now, an avid Marvel fan has imagined Atwell playing the part in live-action.
Friday, @SaifulCreation released a teaser poster of Atwell’s likeness on the body of Steve Rogers on the theatrical poster of The winter Soldier. The logo has also been swapped, with the What if…? brand is shown instead of that of the Winter Soldier. Check out the piece for yourself below.

Luckily for fans of the character, What If…? producer Brad Winderbaum has confirmed that the character will return in future seasons of the animated series.
“We realized, I think, early in development when we started getting AC… [Bradley’s] scripts and start looking at the arc of the series that there would be a character that bubbled up and became more important,” Winderbaum said at a press conference for the show earlier this year. “Not more important than the rest, but had a strong relationship with The Watcher, who is really our driving force behind the series, and that’s Captain Carter.”
“And we realized when we started developing the second season that Captain Carter would be the character we would revisit every season and continue that adventure,” the producer added. “Obviously, we’re telling a story on a giant multiverse canvas, so you never really know who’s going to show up where and when. It’s basically an anthology, but there’s always opportunity to make fun connections” behind the series, and that is Captain Carter.”
The first season of Marvel’s What If…? is now streaming on Disney+.
