Emily VanCamp, who made her debut in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Agent 13, will return to the franchise with next year’s Captain America: Civil War, this time openly identifying herself as Sharon Carter – the niece of Steve’s former love, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). In her handful of scene in The Winter Soldier, VanCamp’s Agent 13 made it clear where her allegiance lay – with Captain America. And going into Civil War, it appears that hasn’t changed. Per VanCamp, Sharon is still very much Team Cap.
“She’s definitely Team Captain America,” VanCamp said of the conflict when she stopped by the ET offices on Tuesday. “That’s who she is within the universe, I mean, she’s always had his back.”
While VanCamp only had a short amount of screen-time in The Winter Soldier, her character still managed to play a rather important piece in the story. Of course, that doesn’t mean she managed to really get in on the action. Outside of the scene between Agent 13 and Frank Grillo‘s Brock Rumlow, VanCamp’s role wasn’t very action orientated. Going into Civil War, however, that appears to have changed as she’ll have a fight sequence with the Black Widow herself, Scarlett Johansson.
“I got to do a small fight sequence with Scarlett [Johansson] which was fun,” she said. “We’re all just kind of kicking ass in those movies.”
VanCamp also talked about a potential romance between Sharon and Captain America. Of course, when the shortlist for the female lead went out for Captain America: The Winter Solder, it was said that the character would serve as a love interest for Steve Rogers. This led many to assume we’d see something blossom between Steve and Sharon in the sequel, which of course, didn’t happen. So what about Civil War? Will there be a hint of romance between the two characters in the third installment? Although VanCamp plays coy about it when asked, she doesn’t outright deny it as a possibility.
“That’s where it all gets really tricky,” the actress admits, “because there are die-hard fans that want to see him with different people. There’s all the different camps, so hopefully people are happy with it.”
Captain America: Civil War will hit movie theaters on May 6th, 2016.
