It was confirmed last year that Hayley Atwell, who played the role of Peggy Carter in the first Captain America film, will not be returning for the sequel. However, recent news seem to contradict this, as Hayley Atwell is said to be filming a cameo for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She’s not going to be the female lead, but she’s still going to reprise her role, however short. Right?
The news came from Stanley Tucci, who appeared with Atwell in the first film. The actor accidentally spilled the beans when he was asked on whether he himself would be reappearing in the sequel:
“No, they haven’t [asked], unfortunately,” revealed Tucci. “I’m really sad. I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, and co-starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in the UK on 4 April 2014.
