Captain America Sequel to Include The Falcon and Sharon Carter?Movie News — By ecksmanfan on August 19, 2011 5:02 am
Now that Captain America: the First Avenger has hit theaters, and performed pretty well at the box office, and the Avengers film is currently filming, it won’t be long before a sequel for Cap is under way. In fact, a script is currently being worked on by Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely, who recently talked to PopcornBiz about some of the things they’d like to see in the upcoming sequel.
Regarding the time-frame for the film:
“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.’”
What about Captain America in the 1940′s:
“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.”
Inclusion of the Falcon and Sharon Carter:
“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.”
Obviously, it is still very early in the process for this film and this sounds more like wishful thinking rather than a possibility. I’d suspect we’d see Winter Soldier before we see The Falcon show up in a Captain America film. As for Sharon Carter, being that she made a cameo appearance at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger (played by Amanda Righetti), it’s almost a sure bet she will appear once again.
