In an interview with Collider, Atwell's CAPTAIN AMERICA co-star Stanley Tucci confirmed she would be back for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER for a brief cameo.

When asked if he would be returning for the second outing, he replied: "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."

As of now, Atwell herself has not confirmed the news.
