Hayley Atwell will not return to Captain America

It looks as if Hayley Atwell won't be returning to the screen as Peggy Carter in the Captain America sequel, 'The Winter Soldier'.

Talking to Time Out recently, Atwell  revealed that she won't be joining the production.

Instead the sequel, which will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo looks likely to feature Peggy's younger sister, Sharon Carter as the main female lead character.
