Captain America Writers Hope To See Agent Carter In Civil War
We've not even had the release of Marvel's two 2015 movies yet, but already a great deal of attention is being paid to what the studio will do next year, specifically with Captain America: Civil War. Now, Captain America and Agent Carter writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have stoked the flames of intrigue with their comments in conversation at the TCA press tour.
"It's been on and off the table for a while, let's put it that way," McFeely said of adapting the Civil Wars series. "And it's a challenge to do it and make sure that all the characters that we've established, and everyone's established in the MCU are serviced and sound correct, right? Because there's a difference between the characters in Civil War, which was written in 2006, 2007. The MCU doesn't exist [when it was written]. There isn't a Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans who has helped create the character so we need to make sure that that template gets adjusted and what have you in order to make sure it services these characters and not just sort of rip off their parts and make them look like them."
But it's when the conversation drew to Agent Carter - a character currently killing it on TV - that things got rather interesting.
"As we have not started shooting, and I'm on my fourth draft of many, that question [of who Peggy was to Tony Stark] has been in and out all over the place so who knows," said McFeely. "So many things can shake out but we've had conversations and we pitched scenes. Some stay and some don't. But we saw [Peggy] in Winter Soldier, so we know she's around".
Naturally you may expect Hayley Atwell to appear in some form of flashback scene, but what if Hayley Atwell isn't the one to feature in Civil War and it is instead Peggy's niece, Sharon Carter (Agent 13) who was played by Emily Van Camp in The Winter Soldier? Either way, it's great to see so much love being shown towards characters like Agent Carter and if you ask me, the more exposure she gets on the big screen, the better.
