Joe Russo Teases Sharon Carter’s Role Goes Beyond CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
When Captain America: The First Avenger was announced to be set in the WWII time frame, nobody had any question on who the female lead would be for the film. Peggy Carter was shoe-in for the movie, and not long after it was made offical Hayley Atwell was cast as the character. Fast forward to when Captain America: The Winter Soldier is announced, and it becomes a little bit more cloudy. Fans were wondering if Peggy would be brought back, or will they go with her niece Sharon Carter AKA Agent 13. Well we got the answer when Marvel released that they had cast Emily Van Camp as Sharon Carter in the movie. However, it has been confirmed that Peggy will play some sort of role in the movie.
In the comics, when Steve Rogers finds him self in the modern world, he has an on again off again type relationship with Sharon. Fans of the comics and the movies were curious to whether or not that will play out in the Winter Soldier. “We introduce her as a character in this movie, but it’s sort of a soft introduction,” says director Joe Russo. He also elaborated that they are setting her character up long term as well by saying, “There’s definitely the budding of [a romance], but it’s something that’s more left to future storytellers.”
So it looks as if Agent 13 will be a part of Marvel movie plans for a while. Could she have a role in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron or is it just more plans for Captain America 3, a film that the Russo Brothers are already plotting. Only time will tell, but make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy for the latest.
