Hayley Atwell Confirmed for ‘Mission: Impossible’ Sequels

It looks like after working for S.H.I.E.L.D., Peggy Carter joined the Impossible Mission Force.

Hayley Atwell has confirmed on her Instagram that she has joined the cast for the next two installments in the Mission: Impossible franchise. She joins returning cast members Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames. Fingers crossed Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, and Maggie Q find their way back to the seventh and eighth films as well.

I had a go at a ‘photo grid’ in an attempt to display some tech-savvy-millennial skills. For those of you who don’t know, this involves nine separate posts loaded one at a time which only come together as a complete image when someone views the profile page. Some of the comments were of the ‘wot-is-goin-on-u-can’t-frame-a-picture, mate’ variety SO, to ease the confusion, here is my news in one post….. I’m thrilled to have joined @tomcruise and @christophermcquarrie for the next TWO Mission Impossible movies. To have gone from a classical play in the west-end to an audio book recording of a great new novel to a Disney/Marvel animation and now the female lead in a huge action franchise is the kind of variety that fuels my curiosity and keeps me learning and striving to be better and do better. I can’t wait to start sharing this adventure with you. Mostly in the form of effusive, sweaty ranting about stunt training while spontaneously vomiting with excitement/exhaustion. Lucky you. 🕺

Although playing Agent Peggy Carter in a variety of properties throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be Atwell’s most well-known role, she has been branching out in recent years. She had a starring role in ABC’s Conviction, and appeared in Disney’s Christopher Robin. She will next be seen in Netflix’s upcoming drama series Criminal: UK.

I’m definitely a fan of Atwell’s, so I look forward to seeing her act opposite Cruise and Ferguson. However, it’s not clear yet whose side she will be on. Maybe she was August Walker’s (Henry Cavill) wife? The possibilities are endless.

Christopher McQuarrie has signed on to write and direct the next two installments which will be hitting theaters on July 23, 2021 and August 5, 2022.
