A major aspect of Captain America was the romance between Steve Rogers (Played by Chris Evans) and Peggy Carter (Played by Hayley Atwell.) The two sweethearts were parted when our hero went into suspended animation. It’s possible they may meet again in Captain America: the Winter Soldier but she’ll be played by a different actress, and most likely an older one. Although the good Captain has remained youthful since WW2, Peggy will not have. If the character does appear in the sequel film, she will be 70 years older than she was in the original and will probably be portrayed by a more elderly actress.
Atwell originally indicated that she expected to be in the sequel, although her official answer when asked was “I’m not allowed to say yet”. Apparently, she was too optimistic. Recently, in an interview with Time Out, she revealed that she would not be in the film.
Joss Whedon, who wrote and directed the Avengers, said that he’d written a “beautiful and poignant scene” with Steve meeting an aged Peggy in the present. The scene was omitted from the script and never flmed. Maybe such a scene will be included in a future Marvel film. The Captain America sequel will focus on Captain America’s continued adjustment to the modern world and his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as the return of his old friend Bucky as the Winter Soldier.
Fans of the comics know that Captain America becomes involved in a long-term relationship with a younger relative of Peggy’s named Sharon Carter. It’s possible that Sharon will be in one of the future sequels, but that’s unconfirmed. In the meantime, Captain America: the Winter Soldier will have Chris Evans; Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury; Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow; Cobie Smulders as Agent Hill and Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.
