50 Girlcrushes of 2013: Hayley Atwell
Peggy Carter. Peggy FUCKING Carter. Watching the Peggy Carter short was both exhilarating and maddening. Exhilarating because I got to see one of my favorite characters again and she exceeded my expectations for everything I would want in a heroine. Maddening because we only got a short and this character deserves so much more. While there are rumors of a possible Peggy Carter series now that Marvel has several different platforms on which to deliver it (TV geek speak for either it can be on ABC or it can be on Netflix), but one thing is certain, if there is no way to get Hayley Atwell involved in any future series, the project might as well never see the light of day. Atwell is the reason Peggy Carter is so wonderfully vibrant and fierce. There is this strange idea that still permeates a lot of media that in order for a woman to be seen as tough or as a hero that she has to adopt more masculine traits (although it is getting better), as if men are the only people to ever be heroes, but Carter is wonderful because she is smart and capable and she does it all in red lipstick and a nice skirt. People who under-estimate Peggy Carter are doomed to look like idiots and who doesn’t love a character like that.
Hope you enjoyed Turkey Day! Take it easy today and watch the first-ever StoryCorps special, Listening Is an Act of Love.
