Beyond saving the world, taking down evil Nazi-inspired organizations and being an all-around American treasure, Captain America has a lot on his plate. Namely, the lack of a love life for the past 70 or so years has got to be weighing on him, especially with Peggy Carter having marrying and having a family. Don't you just hate when you get frozen in ice for decades and the love of your life moves on?
Fortunately, next year's "Captain America: Civil War" may finally give him a romantic interest in S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent 13, who we first met in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." In that movie, Sharon Carter (yes, related to Peggy) was posing as "Kate," Cap's neighbor, in order to keep an eye on him for S.H.I.E.L.D and Nick Fury. They flirted and bantered with one another and may have actually gone on a date if not for the whole Hydra- infiltrating-S.H.I.E.L.D. fiasco. Don't you just hate when a secret neo-Nazi organization gets in the way of your dating life?
Actress Emily VanCamp spoke to ET Online about her role in "Civil War" and hinted that sparks could fly once again, though she did admit to being nervous about upsetting fans of the source material.
"That's where it all gets really tricky, because there are die-hard fans that want to see him with different people. There's all the different camps, so hopefully people are happy with it," said VanCamp.
In the Marvel Cinematic universe, Cap's everyday life really only consists of two women: Carter and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow. Considering her character is already making googly eyes at Bruce Banner, Carter kind of wins by default. Plus, Widow will be on the opposing side of the conflict in "Civil War," whereas Carter is going to stand by Rogers.
"Captain America: Civil War" will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.
