Peggy Carter isn't coming back...
Don't expect to see Steve Rogers' first love in the next Captain America film. Hayley Atwell told Timeout during an interview that she would not be back as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
As the site puts it, "[Atwell] won't, she confirms, be back for the latter's sequel, which moves the action into the present day."
The current rumor is that the female lead in the film will be Sharon Carter, Peggy's niece. Jessica Brown Findlay, Emilia Clarke, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots and Alison Brie are said to be in the running for that role.
The film will see Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders and Sebastian Stan reprise their roles as Cap, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Maria Hill and Bucky. Anthony Mackie will be playing Falcon and Frank Grillo will portray Crossbones. It hits theaters on April 4th, 2014.
