Interpreting since 2011 the recurring role of Peggy Carter in the films of the MCU, Hayley Atwell will make a detour on the side of Netflix in an animated adaptation of the famous series of video games “Tomb Raider”. Indeed, she will lend her voice to the iconic star of the video game world: Lara Croft.
Tomb Raider on Netflix: waiting for the movie?
In recent years, the video game saga not only had a small visual facelift in the mid-2010s, but it also had a film adaptation in 2018. Worn by Alicia Vikander, tomb Raider has had sufficient success. While a sequel on the big screen is still pending (pandemic requires), Netflix took the opportunity to adapt the video game into an animated series.
This new production tomb Raider will follow the events seen in the new video game trilogy published by Square Enix since 2013. We will therefore find a more mature and experienced Lara Croft. The purists of the first games tomb Raider should therefore appreciate.
Peggy Carter in voice
For doubling the voice of the heroine in the original version, British actress Hayley Atwell was chosen. The latter is no longer unknown to the general public since, since 2011 and Captain America: First Avenger, she regularly appears in several MCU feature films as Peggy Carter, love interest of Steve Rogers. She even got her own series called Marvel’s Agent Carter. The actress is also not a novice dubbing, as we could see in the film. Peter Rabbit 2, series The Trio from elsewhere: Les Contes d’Arcadia (also on Netflix) and What / If, animated show of the MCU in which she reprizes her role of Peggy Carter.
For the moment, no release date has been communicated for this tomb Raider Netflix version. It will be written by Tasha Huo (The Witcher: Blood Origin) and animation by Powerhouse Animation (Masters of the Universe: Revelation).
For Hayley Atwell, in addition to being present on the Disney + and Netflix platforms, we will also find it in theaters since it will be part of the cast of Mission Impossible 7 and Mission Impossible 8.
