"Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards, so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically 'What Peggy Did Next', which will be shown at Comic-Con [the annual international pop culture convention held in San Diego] and be on the DVD extras of the second film."

She went on to express her excitement for the spin-off.

"So as well as doing a bit in the new film, I've got a whole new spin-off short film. It has been great to be back in training with the stunt co-ordinators, kicking some butt again."

Peggy Carter will appear in Captain America: The Winter Soldier via brief flashbacks.
