It’s On! Captain America: Civil War Begins Shooting, Featuring Agent 13 And Black Panther
Your job is to plant yourself by the theater, and tell the whole world: no, you move.
According to Deadline, Emily VanCamp will suit up once again as Agent 13/Kate/Sharon Carter for Captain America: Civil War, alongside Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther! Wakanda, here we come.
During the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agent 13 was tasked with keeping an eye on Cap, under the guise of “Kate,” his next-door neighbor. After making googly-eyes at each other over laundry, she was the first agent on the scene after the Winter Soldier shoots Nick Fury. Her identity as Sharon Carter (Peggy Carter’s niece) is still unrevealed in the MCU, but to a lot of comics fans, it’s pretty obvious at this point.
In addition to VanCamp’s return, io9 reports that the Latino Review has heard rumors surrounding Martin Freeman‘s possible role in Captain America: Civil War. According to those rumors, Freeman will be playing Everett K. Ross, a character from the Black Panther universe. According to Marvel Database, he is “an expert in Wakandan questions.”
Just today, Marvel announced that they’ve begun production on Captain America: Civil War, and the announcement comes with a MASSIVE laundry list of characters.
Set for release in the United States on May 6, 2016, Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Community) from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Solider, Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger). The film returns Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron) as the iconic Super Hero character Steve Rogers/Captain America along with Robert Downey Jr. (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s Iron Man 3) as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: The First Avenger) as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier) as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3) as The Vision, Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s The Avengers) as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3) as Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Elizabeth Olsen (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Godzilla) as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
After his debut in Marvel’s “Ant-Man” on July 17, 2015, Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) will make his first appearance alongside the Avengers as Scott Lang/Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
The film also includes outstanding additional cast, including Chadwick Boseman (42, Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Revenge) as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds, Bourne Ultimatum), Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Warrior) as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt (A History of Violence, Marvel’s The Incredible Hulk) as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross and Martin Freeman (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies).
On top of all the returning Avengers and an appearance from Ant-Man, there’s a neat throwback to The Incredible Hulk with Edward Norton in William Hurt’s return to the Marvel universe.
But perhaps the most interesting bit to come out of the announcement is that this’ll be our first glimpse of Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in action.
