Captain Carter’s Shield Comes to Life as a Wearable Marvel Legends Replica

Hasbro has officially unveiled the latest addition to its Marvel Legends Series Premium Role-Play line: a wearable replica of Captain Carter's Shield.

Marvel enthusiasts can now bring home their own Captain Carter shield, as it joins Hasbro's impressive collection of Marvel Legends Series Premium Role-Play items.

Drawing inspiration from Captain Carter's debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's What If...? Season 1 on Disney+, this wearable shield is a faithful 1:1 scale reproduction of the British hero's formidable Vibranium-made weapon. The replica boasts a width of approximately 24 inches or 64 cm, featuring meticulous sculpting and intricate detailing that accurately captures its on-screen appearance. Adjustable straps are included to ensure a secure and comfortable fit, allowing the wearer to be prepared for battle at all times. Recommended for ages 14 years and up, the Marvel Legends Series Captain Carter Role Play shield is now available for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse and at major retailers, with a suggested retail price of $149.99.

Captain Carter burst onto the Marvel Cinematic Universe scene in the inaugural season of Marvel Studios' groundbreaking animated series, What If...? This anthology delves into captivating alternate timelines within the multiverse, overseen by the enigmatic extraterrestrial entity known as the Watcher, voiced by Jeffrey Wright. Within this enthralling narrative, Captain Carter emerges as a variant of Agent Peggy Carter, residing in a reality where circumstances prevented Steve Rogers from receiving the Super Soldier Serum. In a selfless act of heroism, Agent Carter courageously steps forward to take his place, ultimately becoming the world's first Avenger.

Captain Carter’s Return in What If…? Season 2

Hayley Atwell, who has portrayed Peggy Carter since 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, will reprise her role as Captain Carter in the highly anticipated second season of What If...?. Atwell will once again lend her voice to the British superhero in the animated series. Photos of official merchandise for Season 2 have confirmed that Captain Carter will don an updated costume, adding an exciting new dimension to her character.

While specific details about the upcoming season remain closely guarded, it is expected to adapt stories from the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3 and 4. Notable characters confirmed to appear include Hela, Ego, Black Widow, Steve Rogers, Iron Man, Shang-Chi, and Black Panther.

Following Captain Carter's animated debut, Atwell had the opportunity to portray the character in live-action during a cameo appearance in Sam Raimi's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Despite the character's demise in the hands of Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch, executive producer Bryan Andrews revealed that Earth-838's Captain Carter is a distinct variant from the one introduced in What If...? Season 1. This tantalizing revelation hints at the potential future of this beloved hero within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

All nine episodes of What If...? Season 1 are currently available for streaming on Disney+. While Marvel Studios has not officially announced the exact release date for Season 2, fans can anticipate its debut sometime in 2023.
