In the forthcoming third season of What If...?, fans can expect Captain Carter, portrayed by the adored Hayley Atwell, to step into the forefront, promising an exciting focus on her character's journey. Reportedly, as disclosed by Alex Perez of The Cosmic Circus, it is stated that the character is set to be part of Avengers: Secret Wars.

With Secret Wars expected to draw characters from across the MCU Multiverse for an epic battle, it's no surprise that Marvel Studios would want to include Captain Carter. She has emerged as one of the franchise's fan-favorite variants, making her a fitting addition to the film's lineup.

She prominently features in multiple episodes of the Disney+ animated series What If...? throughout its initial two seasons. Additionally, Atwell portrays a different variant of Captain Carter originating from Earth-838, who becomes a member of the Illuminati, in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).

It's rumored that the upcoming film Deadpool & Wolverine will continue to lay the groundwork for Secret Wars.
