Gods be good, why would any man ever want to be king? When everyone was shouting King in the North, King in the North, I told myself … swore to myself … that I would be a good king, as honorable as Father, strong, just, loyal to my friends and brave when I faced my enemies … now I can’t even tell one from the other.

"And how she smiled and how she laughed, the maiden of the tree. She spun away and said to him, No featherbed for me! I’ll wear a gown of golden leaves, And bind my hair with grass, But you can be my forest love, And me your forest lass…”
Did you like that [Peggy Carter] was a strong capable woman instead of “please help Captain America!”?Yeah, f*ck that (laughs). And why not, she was in a position where if she was like that, she wouldn’t be of that position. And when she says “I know what it’s like to have a few doors slammed in my face,” I think because she’s this attractive woman who’s beautifully made up, she had to fight a little bit harder to get where she is to prove that she’s capable. And I think that’s great because there’s a kindred spirit between here and Steve, there’s an equality about them and I love that. I think of women in the forties like Bette Davis or Katherine Hepburn, or my grandmother and I think “wow, they knew their power as women, so beautifully.” And Peggy in the script had that too, and I love that about her.
