Hayley Atwell Seemingly Confirms Her Reprisal In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Hayley Atwell Seemingly Confirms Her Reprisal In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Even though it's somewhat inevitable, especially if the sequel will include flashbacks, the Captain America: The First Avenger Peggy Carter actress has basically confirmed her return in the sequel!

Although the subtitle of the forthcoming Captain America sequel already alludes to the return of James Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stan, a deleted scene from Marvel The Avengers also hinted at the return of another 40s-era ally of Steve Rogers. With that in mind, it's no surprise what the actress behind Peggy Carter, Hayley Atwell, had to offer when Bleeding Cool approached her at the premiere of her new film, The Sweeney.

“I can’t say yet because it hasn’t been officially released, and Marvel are very protective of their franchise.”

The Winter Soldier co-director Anthony Russo cleverly dodged a question in regards to the sequel exploring “dark” flashbacks. And with Peggy Carter still “active” in modern times, we'll likely see her in flashbacks, and/or modern times. And if modern times, we'll either see an older actress behind her portrayal or an aged Hayley Atwell, with the use of Hollywood makeup and special effects. Anyhow, Marvel has also yet to “officially release” which actress will nab a new female addition to the cast, believed to be Peggy Carter's niece, Sharon Carter.

Described as a political thriller, Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) continues his affiliation with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. With an expected return from James 'Bucky' Barnes (Sebastian Stan), actor Anthony Mackie is also set to star. And Anthony & Joe Russo (“Community,” “You, Me and Dupree”) take over directorial duties from Joe Johnston, who helmed the first film. And “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4, 2014.

In journalism language that means:

"Why yes I am coming back, but it's a secret and I'm not allowed to say that."

"Described as Political Thriller?"
I like the sound of that.
marvel72 - 9/3/2012, 12:55 PM
the flashback moments in the winter soldier storyline were some of the best moments.

Task #1: Fix the damn Captain America costume.
thewonderer - 9/3/2012, 1:08 PM
I think making her Sharon carter is the worst idea anyone in history ever came up with
AlexDeLarge87 - 9/3/2012, 1:12 PM
Awesome if she returns.

Sarah Carter should play Sharon.
AutobotCommander84 - 9/3/2012, 1:15 PM
Do what they did for Carla Gugino in Watchmen. Just put makeup on Haley Atwell and you have an aged Peggy.

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/3/2012, 1:19 PM
I want Cap to visit old Peggy. That could be a very emotional scene if done right.
OdinsBeard - 9/3/2012, 1:25 PM
I vote to have her play Sharon.
Super12 - 9/3/2012, 1:26 PM
^agreed. I was really hoping it'd be a scene in The Avengers but I think it'd be best in Cap 2.
CharlesLord - 9/3/2012, 1:27 PM
have her play Sharon!!!!!!
DCMarvelFreshman - 9/3/2012, 1:33 PM
@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 Agreed, we need a proper interpretation of that dynamic on-screen. It was handled pretty well in the Ultimate Avengers animated movie.

"political thriller"

Wow. That has all the potential in the world to suck. Captain America is my favorite hero, but Marvel hasn't done very well with the character over the past 35 years. He's VERY popular with those of us that like him, but from time to time the liberals running the MCU can't help but bash him and make him seem week or stupid in his adoration for God and Country. Another tired storyline is the "Government has done me wrong..." story. I would really like to see them stay away from that crap. It can be compelling in small doses, particularly when it pits Cap against politicians that are corrupt and no longer serving the public, but it tends to make him seem whiny and weak.

Cap is a great hero because he embodies the best of America. He was transformed into a perfect physical specimen, but he was already perfect in his moral code and the lack of malice or prejudice in his heart. There are great scenes all through the comics over the past 40+ years showing this. I hope they don't screw it up.

They've done pretty well, so far. They seemed to realize that Cap's bump in popularity of late is based on the Ultimate comics. There they've gone back to a BA soldier that always does the right thing and always seems to have a plan. He never says die and knows that he can get anything done if he trys hard enough.

(steps off soapbox)

"im not peggy im sharon cant you tell by my accent??"
jimpinto24 - 9/3/2012, 1:37 PM
I would like to see Hayley Atwell come back to reprise her role as Peggy Carter. Either flashback scenes or a scene where Steve meets the older Peggy. As far as casting for Sharon Cater, I would like Marvel Studio's to cast Imogen Poots as Sharon, but I wouldn't mind if Marvel Studio's casted Anna Kendrick as Sharon.
Ceejay - 9/3/2012, 1:48 PM
Good, because she's delicious!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/3/2012, 1:49 PM
Yea that is what I was thinking. A lot of cool parts in that movie were in Avengers too. Hulk trying to use thor's hammer as one of those things.
Optimus83 - 9/3/2012, 1:53 PM

it would be a great Wonder Woman for a solo movie and JLA. ...

ella sería una estupenda Wonder Woman para una película en solitario y de la JLA. ...
RunDTC - 9/3/2012, 1:58 PM
please let her be Sharon!

Hayley Atwell

BooYah - 9/3/2012, 2:02 PM
Good news. I wonder who they'll cast as Sharon.
Guerillas - 9/3/2012, 2:02 PM
GoILL - 9/3/2012, 2:07 PM
She is hot, glad that she is coming back.
MassNerder - 9/3/2012, 2:11 PM
Grimfoe, Captain America's spike in popularity is due to Brubakers amazing run. It's in the numbers bud.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 9/3/2012, 2:12 PM
YAY!!!! shes such a hottie . omg!
lokibane2012 - 9/3/2012, 2:15 PM
This woman is so [frick]ing hot. I hope she's Sharon Carter, so we can see more of that nice ass in tight clothing, in this film and in future films.
Deadpool101 - 9/3/2012, 2:34 PM
she is so freaking attractive
CaptainObvious - 9/3/2012, 2:43 PM
Too bad she's probably going to be in old lady make-up. Hahahahahaha!
Maia87 - 9/3/2012, 2:57 PM
Glad she's back. She was a strong female character.
JULEZ13 - 9/3/2012, 3:00 PM
Pretty sure she'll be in flashback scenes... Or a Peggy with lots of makeup etc to look like an old lady... But then, why go through all that trouble? Just hire an old lady!

Her playing her great niece Sharon would be the stupidest shit ever. I hope they don't do that. Can't wait til this movie though! Its my most anticipated Phase 2 movie next to Avengers 2!
JULEZ13 - 9/3/2012, 3:02 PM
Oh and I too want to see Cap visit her while she's withered and old! That will be an amazing scene and would be one of the best in CBM history! If done right of course.
Lozzy - 9/3/2012, 3:11 PM
awesome if shes in flashbacks but please not as Sharon Carter it would look awkward and confusing. Anna Kendrick for Sharon!!
NostalgicYouth - 9/3/2012, 3:21 PM
@runDTC Those pictures are bonerrific, thank you man; thank you!
Ha1frican - 9/3/2012, 3:32 PM
If you rmember frm the Cap Avengers opening it says she was still alive and it was hinted at before that there was a cut scene involving her in modern day. I bet she mainly comes back in flashbacks (there are years missing from ww2 because of the montage) but i think its possible we will see a reunion.
Moakynubs - 9/3/2012, 3:34 PM
It goes like this: If the answer is no, the actor doesn't say maybe or that it's a secret. They might say they'd like to be. If it's a yes, it's a secret.
DoomXfactor - 9/3/2012, 3:36 PM
She has to come out in more movies. She's [frick]ing hot!!!
sbdc1939 - 9/3/2012, 3:55 PM
good i hope she is still in there someway she so f###ing hot!!! see i pleeped myself....
cyclopstb - 9/3/2012, 3:55 PM
They'll gonna have to turn her into an old lady because Peggy was young in the past.
CoolantTech - 9/3/2012, 4:01 PM
Wouldn't mind seeing her as Sharon just change the hair, remove the lipstick, and drop the accent along with wearing the more modern sheild catsuits, if she's a good enough actress, which im sure she is she could definately pull it off
