MTV’s Kevin P. Sullivan was in the Comic-Con press room and did a quick interview with Hayley Atwell. There, he asked her about her Avengers: Age of Ultron role which she recently announced. She told Kevin that she will not be seen as the present day “Old Peggy” in Avengers 2 - as she was in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Last we saw of ‘Peggy’ she was in a retirement home suffering with alzheimers.
The role was a last minute addition. Joss and Hayley had gone out for drinks and during a conversation he suggested he write her into the flick and she eagerly accepted. (x)

Seriously, let’s pause for a minute to appreciate how epic their friendship is. Bucky was brainwashed to the point of torture but he STILL remembered how important Steve was to him. And Steve literally dropped his shield - the symbol of everything Cap - to let Bucky beat him within an inch of his life because he WOULD NOT fight him. He had faith in Bucky, his best friend, because even when he had nothing, he had Bucky.
“Natasha is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who don’t have their own franchises. Although she’s in ‘Cap 2’, [and] she’s great. She was the most fun for me because she’s not a hero, you know, and it’s something that I read - and I feel bad that I can’t remember who wrote the book - but it’s in one of the books explaining, ‘Those guys are heroes, you are a spy. It’s a different thing - it’s a different skill set - and you don’t have any of their moral high ground or ay of that good stuff.’ And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff I’ve got going on with her in the second one is killer.” - Joss Whedon on plans for Black Widow in Avengers: Age Of Ultron
