Atwell set to return for Captain America: The Winter Soldier after all?

February 15th, 2013 by Marc Comments

She denied it, but it looks like Hayley Atwell IS returning in Captain America: The Winter Soldier…

Despite Winter Soldier taking place in the modern day, after the first movie, it looks like Peggy Carter, the love of Steve Rogers’ life, will be back, although in what capacity is still up for total speculation.

Although, there’s really only two ways. Either in flashback – although how much more there can be to here story given the way it was covered in the first movie is questionable – or, and this seems more likely to us at FTN, Steve visits her in the modern day despite her age, as he – and this was explored in Mark Millar’s Ultimates – is having difficulty adjusting to modern life.

This all comes from Stanley Tucci who, at Jack The Giant Slayer junket, told Collider that he and Atwell will be returning but he will not. Tucci played Dr. Abraham Erskine in the first movie, the scientist who made Rogers tha man he is today…

The Winter Soldier is released on April 14, 2014

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
