Emily VanCamp’s Agent 13 Will Return in Captain America: Civil War

Although it’s not entirely a surprise given the importance of the character of in the comics, Deadline has just confirmed that “Revenge” star Emily VanCamp will be reprising her Captain America: The Winter Soldier role as Agent 13 in next year’s Captain America: Civil War. She joins a massive ensemble, currently set to include Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Robert Downey Jr., Martin Freeman, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Daniel Brühl, Frank Grillo and Chadwick Boseman!

Posing as the Avenger’s neighbor, “Kate,” Agent 13 was tasked with keeping an eye on Steve Rogers for S.H.I.E.L.D. Although the character in the film is clearly based on the comics’ Sharon Carter (the niece of Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter), Agent 13’s actual name in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not been wholly confirmed. It’s a safe bet that we’re going to know a whole lot more about her, however, this same time next year.

Civil War, the first “Phase Three” film from Marvel Studios, follows the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and sees the collective governments of the world pass an act designed to regulate all superhuman activity. This polarizes opinion amongst the Avengers, causing two factions to side with Iron Man or Captain America, which causes an epic battle between former allies. 

Set to be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo (the Winter Soldier sibling pair that are also helming the two-part Avengers: Infinity War), Captain America: Civil War hits theaters and IMAX on May 6, 2016.
