The Captain America Sequel Could Focus On The Falcon and Sharon Carter
Screenwriters Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely tells PopcornBiz, what you can expect in Captain America 2.
Modern day Cap for the sequel?
“It might be doing a disservice not to address the present day Cap, particularly because so much of the comic book run right now is present day Cap – that ‘man out of time’ is the icon,” admits Markus. “The Captain America that most people know is really from kind of the reboot, when Stan Lee brought him back in '63 and '64, frozen from a block of ice. So his biggest personality trait is that he's this man out of time, and for us, we didn't have the opportunity [to explore that]. This was a guy in the RIGHT time.”
Could we see The Falcon and Sharon Carter in Captain America 2?
“I want both of them!” says Markus. “Sharon is meaty, almost to a point where you get a little uncomfortable because her relation to Peggy has shifted over the years, as time has passed. She's the sister, she's the cousin, she's the niece. You have to walk a fine line there because it does seem like you're dating your girlfriend's daughter. Falcon is awesome. We can't play with time so much to have Cap go back to Harlem in the '70's and clean up the streets, but it would be awesome to go straight up, like, 'Shaft' with Cap and the Falcon.”
And what about Cap in the 40's?
“We certainly want at least a portion of the '40's, I think,” co-screenwriter Chris Markus tells PopcornBiz, and his screenwriting partner Stephen McFeely agrees: “The span of the movie is about two or three years, and there's a few times in the film where you jump four months ahead, you jump six months ahead. So we did that with the intention of saying, 'Okay, there are certainly unseen adventures that Captain America went on in that period that if we want to, we can go back and explore later.’”
Well it's pretty well assumed that actress, Amanda Righetti is going to play Sharon Carter. She is one of the stars of the CBS hit show, The Mentalist, and she made a brief cameo at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger.
Who is Sharon Carter?
Inspired by stories about her Aunt Peggy's adventures in the French Resistance alongside Captain America, Sharon Carter joined the newly-formed espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. During an early mission against Hydra, Sharon was attacked by the mercenary Batroc and aided by Captain America. Initially knowing her only as Agent 13, Cap worked alongside Carter on several subsequent missions against A.I.M., the Nazi Red Skull, and others; the two soon became lovers - courtesy of marvel.com
The Falcon, who do you think should play him? He was one of the first black superheroes and a sidekick for Captain America. Read below for more information on The Falcon. Fun fact: Sam was asked to be part of The Avengers because of affirmative action, but turned it down.
Who is The Falcon (Sam Wilson)?
The Red Skull sought to use Wilson as a pawn against Captain America, who was currently on the island searching for the villain. The Skull reasoned that Wilson's idealism would appeal to the Captain enough to become his crimefighting partner. Then, at some later date, the Skull could use Wilson against his enemy. He used a Cosmic Cube to revert "Snap" into Sam and give Sam the ability to telepathically communicate with birds, especially a bird that Wilson had bought named Redwing. Sam helped Captain America defeat the Skull and did indeed become his partner as the Falcon.
Abilities & Powers:
Excellent trainer of birds, and has been highly trained in gymnastics and hand-to-hand combat by Captain America.
Originally possessed the ability to telepathically communicate with his pet falcon Redwing, but that ability has grown into the ability to telepathically communicate with any birds within an unknown radius. Through this telepathic link he is also able to receive mental images of what the birds see. - courtesy of Marvel.com
