‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ — Hayley Atwell Returning After All?
We’ve already heard a lot about ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ specifically regarding which stars from the first would be returning for another go with the Cap. Toby Jones and Sebastian Stan are both reprising their roles, while leading lady Hayley Atwell was a no-go. However, that last part might not be entirely true after all, according to her former co-star Stanley Tucci.
The star, featured in ‘Captain America’ as one of the scientists who transformed Steve Rogers into the “First Avenger,” has been making the press rounds for his latest endeavor ’Jack the Giant Slayer.’ In an interview with Collider, the subject of ‘Captain America’ came up and if he’d been asked to return for the next chapter, and he let slip a small-ish spoiler:
I loved making that movie. I had a great time. … No, they haven’t [asked me back], unfortunately. I’m really sad. I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.
Not the biggest news in the world, but at least the fanboys should be pleased. Atwell previously told TimeOut that she wouldn’t be returning at all, and perhaps that was true at the time of the interview, but we all know how fast the weather can change. (Five hypothetical points to whomever knows which movie that line is from.)
So what do you think? Are you happy Agent Carter will be kept alive in memory, or would you prefer her to remain in the shadows of ‘Captain America’ history?
