Hayley Atwell Will NOT Return For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Hayley Atwell Will NOT Return For CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

After modest interviews and a deleted scene from The Avengers alluded to her reprisal in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Hayley Atwell now reportedly confirms it's not happening.



After playing coy with “I'm not allowed to say yet,” last September, Hayley Atwell had seemingly confirmed she’d be reprising her ‘Peggy Carter’ role from Captain America: The First Avenger in the 2014 sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. However, a recent interview with the English actress indicates that headlines apparently jumped the gun. An excerpt from her chat with TimeOut simply reveals, “She won’t, she confirms, be back for the [Captain America] sequel.”

Now that Atwell can finally confirm she won't return for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, more questions are raised. Considering the character is at least 80 years old in the present-day of Marvel's shared universe, in which a deleted scene from The Avengers confirmed she was still active, an older actress may be sought out. It's also possible that Steve Rogers and Peggy Carter's relationship will flesh out in a third Captain America film, for which plans have been alluded to too.

Perhaps Marvel's creative consultant Joss Whedon will make use of the couple's heartbreaking dynamic for a subplot in The Avengers highly-anticipated 2015 sequel. The writer-director revealed early last year that one of the best scenes he wrote for The Avengers was never filmed and a “beautiful and poignant scene” between Steve and Peggy in the present. What do you think?



Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D, and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

Starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders with Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014.
