EXCLUSIVE: In the wake of Revenge ending its four-season run on ABC, sources tell Deadline that actress Emily VanCamp is returning as Agent 13 aka Kate aka Sharon Carter in Walt Disney Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
Agent 13 appeared briefly in Captain America: Winter Soldier as the superhero’s next door neighbor under the alias of Kate. She is ordered by S.H.I.E.L.D. to protect him. Her storyline in Civil War is under wraps. In the comics, Sharon is the niece of Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest in the first feature installment, who also had her own miniseries on ABC, Agent Carter, earlier this year. The films have not yet established that Agent 13 is Sharon Carter, though she is known as such by legions of Marvel fans. VanCamp is repped by United Talent Agency and Thruline Entertainment.
Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016 and is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo who also helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. VanCamp is also starring in the indie feature The Girl In The Book from director/writer Marya Cohn. The final episode of Revenge “Two Graves” airs this Sunday.
