Stanley Tucci Says Hayley Atwell Will Be Making a Cameo in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

     February 13, 2013


Last month, we reported that Hayley Atwell would not be reprising her role as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  In an interview with TimeOut, she said she wouldn’t be returning.  However, Steve interviewed her Captain America co-star Stanley Tucci earlier today for Jack the Giant Slayer, and it looks like her comments may have been a little misdirection or the script has changed since her interview.

Hit the jump for more.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens in 3D on April 4, 2014.


Tucci is one of my favorite actors, and was one of the best aspects of Captain America: The First Avenger.  When asked about the film, Tucci talked about how much he enjoyed working on it:

I loved making that movie.  I had a great time.  I really like Joe Johnston.  I think he’s a wonderful director.  I also love the look of the film, and the tone of the film, and the character was great.  I was thrilled to be able to play that.  I was so sad that I died because I wanted to come back and do another one.  It was great to be offered this old, German scientist.  I thought, “Oh, that’s great.”  I couldn’t tell if I was really flattered or insulted.  I don’t know.

When Steve brought up the film’s strong love story, and Tucci shared that praise:

Oh, it does.  And Hayley Atwell, who I just had dinner with last night, we’ve become good friends.  I really love that.  I really love the relationship between the two of them.

No, they haven’t, unfortunately.  I’m really sad.  I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.

While I would love to see more of the Dr. Abraham Erskine, it doesn’t make much sense since he got to see Super Soldier Steve Rogers for all of ten seconds before being killed.  There’s a far greater likelihood of Atwell, especially since a deleted scene in The Avengers shows Rogers going through old dossiers and discovering that Peggy is still alive.  However, as Tucci says, it looks like we’re going to be seeing Peggy in a flashback scene.  It will be interesting to see if this pans out, and how the scene will fit into the film.
