Disney XD’s animated Avengers Assemble has adapted Marvel Comics storylines from “Squadron Supreme” to “Ultron Unlimited.” The current season, Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars, has brought back many of our heroes and villains like Arnim Zola, Enchantress, and The Wasp. The next hero to make her return is a fan favorite along with a fan-favorite actress on board to voice her.
Hayley Atwell is now back as Peggy Carter in “New Year’s Resolution.” Here, she and Howard Stark team up with Iron Man and Captain America in order to save the timestream from Kang the Conqueror.
We see Peggy and Captain America reunite in the midst of a Stark family squabble. This is what fans maybe thought they would never get to see. Atwell is in full form in the preview, bringing her confidence to animation as she did to her live-action performances.
Atwell has made very brief appearances in Marvel properties since the cancellation of the ABC series, Agent Carter. There are opportunities for her to make a full live-action return. If this episode is pretty well received by fans and critics, it may send the right kind of message.
This week’s episode of Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars, “New Year’s Resolution,” debuts Sunday, Dec. 3, at 8:30 a.m. ET on Disney XD.
