Hayley Atwell will have a cameo in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.

The 30-year-old actress starred in the franchise's first movie 'Captain America: The First Avenger' and while it was thought she would not return for its sequel, it has been confirmed she will have a small role.

Her 'First Avenger' co-star Stanley Tucci revealed the news when he was asked if her would be returning.

He said: ''No, they haven't [asked], unfortunately. I'm really sad. I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.''

As the majority of the film will take place in the present day after the captain - played by Chris Evans - found himself transported from the 1940s at the end of the first film, it is thought Hayley will appear in a flashback scene.

Emily VanCamp has been cast as the female lead, potentially as Peggy Carter's niece, Sharon.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' - which is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and co-starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan - will be released early next year.
