Avengers: Infinity War is currently the highest grossing comic book movie of all time with over 1.8 billion dollars made worldwide. It is only a matter of time before it hits 2 billion. This is all due to its postivie reception from both fans and critics alike, who have felt that the film did well with balancing all the characters in the large ensemble cast. Unfortunately, some were not in the film, including Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter aka Peggy Carter’s niece.
The last time we saw Sharon Carter was in Captain America: Civil War where she shared a very passionate kiss with Steve Rogers. Many looked at this as a foreshadowing of a possible romance but, at least for now, her story has been put on hold as she was absent from Avengers: Infinty War. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely explain with Collider about this:
“Sharon Carter was a victim of what we came to realize as we were writing it,” Markus explained, “which is that if you’re writing scenes that set up people before the story has gotten to them such as Steve and Sharon trying to make it work in an apartment, they’re gonna go because the movie does not have time to catch up ‘previosusly on the life of Steve Rogers.”
It makes complete sense as towards why they chose to not include her in the movie as it wouldn’t have been a very relevant storyline in the already jam packed story tha came to be Avengers: Infinity War. Along with Sharon Carter, characters like Hawkeye, Ant-Man and even Valkyrie were also absent from the film, but may have a role in the 4th Avengers film. Whether or not Sharon Carter will be in Avengers 4, is unknown, along with the other absent characters. For now, fans can go enjoy Avengers: Infinity War, which is playing in theaters now!
