Hayley Atwell confirms she will appear in Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Hayley Atwell has confirmed that she will have a role in Marvel's Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
The British actress has said that she will reprise her role as Peggy Carter in the second instalment of the Joss Whedon directed film series.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Atwell said that Whedon had told her she would be in the film after a night on the town, she said: "We went out drinking one night and he (Whedon) was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you." And I was like, 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"
It had been originally intended that Captain America would visit an elderly Carter in the first Avengers film, but the scene ended up featuring in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Atwell made her first appearance for Marvel in Captain America: The First Avenger and will star in the forthcoming Agent Carter TV show.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is due to be released into UK cinemas on April 24th next year, with the US release coming a week later.
