With Captain America 2, "The Winter Soldier," taking place more in the present day than the WWII era of the first movie, Hayley Atwell will not be making an appearance in the sequel.
Hayley Atwell, who played Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, confirmed the news to TimeOut.com.
"She won’t, she confirms, be back for the latter’s sequel, which moves the action into the present day," TimeOut reported.
With Atwell out that means no flashback with her and Chris Evans. It most likely also means that Peggy Carter will not be featured in the present day, though an older actress could easily fit the bill. Still, you think they would just age Atwell with makeup and special effects, so most likely, it seems a sure bet we won't be seeing Peggy Carter.
One character we will be seeing a lot more of in Captain America 2 is Nick Fury, as Samuel L. Jackson recently let it be known that he will be featured in the movie.
The Russo Bros. are directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier which has an April 4th, 2014 release date and stars Chris Evans.
