Now that WandaVision has ended, we already have our eyes on the next Marvel Cinematic Universe entry on Disney+, The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. It also means that it is time to retrace the character’s steps, which will take center stage in the upcoming series. Today we will be looking at Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter, who we haven’t seen since Captain America: Civil War. So, it’s going to be quite the treat to see her back in action after almost five years. Let’s take a look back at her journey within the MCU.
We were first introduced to her in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as an agent of the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. She goes undercover to protect Steve Rogers before blowing her cover after Nick Fury gets shot by the Winter Soldier. It is the moment we hear her codename Agent 13 for the first time. Once HYDRA reveals its true identity of infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D., she plays a pivotal role in saving various agents. After the spy organization gets disbanded, she joins the CIA’s Joint Counter Terrorist Center. It isn’t until her next appearance in Captain America: Civil War that she reveals her relation to Steve’s old flame, Peggy Carter. Her speech also inspired him to stand his ground against the newly enacted Sokovian Accords.
After they meet up again, she informs them of Bucky’s whereabouts, who got framed for an explosion in Vienna that lead to the death of Wakandan king T’Chaka. They meet up again after his arrest in Berlin, where she is working alongside Everett Ross. She takes on a mind-controlled Bucky alongside Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark, and T’Challa, but they are unable to take him down. She ends up joining Rogers’ side and ends on the run from the government alongside the superheroes. In Avengers: Infinity War, we only briefly find out she was among those that got snapped during a quick glimpse at the Avengers’ list of missing heroes.
What’s Sharon been up to all these years? How will being Snapped out of existence for 5 years have impacted her life? What will lead her to cross paths with Sam and Bucky? These questions, and more, will be answered in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, which airs on Disney+ March 19th.
