Speaking to The Big Issue, Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell has confirmed she’ll be starring in a Marvel short that’ll fill in the gaps in her character’s story.

“Fans of the first film really wanted to find out what happened to Peggy afterwards,” said Atwell, “so Marvel are also making a short film, which is basically ‘What Peggy Did Next’, which will be shown at San Diego Comic Con and be on the DVD extras of the second film.”

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is due in cinemas 4 April 2014. Buy the first film as triple-play DVD, Blu-ray and digital copy for £17.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
