One thing among many that Marvel Studios have excelled at has been that of incorporating the rich amount of supporting characters that complement each of its heroes. To date, we’ve seen the likes of Pepper Potts, Happy Hogan and General “Thunderbolt” Ross play key roles in a variety of movies. And with Avengers: Infinity War‘s release looming, one could expect to see some familiar faces resurface, but odds are that much of the focus will be placed on the super team themselves in the first of a two-part magnum opus.
One character in particular that originated in the source material whom I believe is yet to get her due is that of Sharon Carter (played by Emily VanCamp). First introduced on screen in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, she’s proven to be a keen ally to Steve Rogers and, while a few sparks have flown between them in the time since, she hasn’t quite achieved the importance of her comic book counterpart.
As is the case with any actor actively involved with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one can’t help but wonder if they’ll be taking part in the extravaganza that Infinity War is expected to be. Well, as it turns out, VanCamp herself told Deadline that she has “no idea” if she’ll be joining in the action. Still, her appearing in that film or its untitled followup shouldn’t be ruled out, as she had this to add:
“With Marvel, they can give you a call the day before you shoot. You don’t know what’s going on with their movies because they’re very secretive.”
Like I said moments ago, the relationship shared between Sharon and Steve isn’t quite as storied as it was in the comics, but we do hope to see her return if indeed Chris Evans is on his way out. What’s funny is that Deadline suggested she appear in Captain Marvel, to which she beamingly replied, “you guys put it out there.” Knowing how that movie is set to take place in the 1990’s though, we wouldn’t advise holding your breath.
Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theatres on May 4, 2018.
