Hayley Atwell Says to Expect More Black Widow in “Agent Carter” Season 2

“Agent Carter” star Hayley Atwell revealed that Bridget Regan’s Dottie Underwood will make a comeback in season two during her panel at Fan Expo Canada.

When asked about the return of Dottie, Atwell responded, “Oh, she’s a slippery bitch. We haven’t seen the last of her. Peggy has male baddies that she fights, but to have someone who is physically her equal — she’s a Black Widow, incredibly capable and very smart — I think that shows some balance for Peggy, like a flip side of the same coin. You’ll see more of her in Season 2.”

Regan has been rumored to return to “Agent Carter” since earlier this summer, when reports claimed that she, Chad Michael Murray (Agent Jack Thompson) and Lyndsy Fonseca (Angie Martinelli) were in talks for the show’s sophomore season. There has been no update regarding Murray or Fonseca’s returns, but Atwell’s comments confirm that Regan is back on board.

In the first season, Dottie worked with Dr. Ivchenko (Ralph Brown) in order to locate a vial of Captain America’s blood among Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) most dangerous inventions. A product of the Black Widow program, Dottie had the skill to match Peggy Carter, resulting in a climactic final confrontation between the two. Peggy, distracted by Howard’s collision course with New York City, unwittingly allows Dottie to escape despite her injuries.

Starring Atwell, James D’Arcy and Enver Gjokaj, “Agent Carter” is scheduled to return to ABC at an as-of-yet undetermined date this fall.
