Captain America embodies all American ideals: freedom, freedom, freedom and throwing a big boomerang shield. But one thing fans are calling out to him is how he treated one of the important women in his life during Captain America: Civil War.
In order to get Bucky to Siberia to wrap up the loose ends of Civil war, Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson need Interpol to return their expensive high-tech equipment. Of course, the only way they can make this happen is by having Sharon Carter rescue them, which costs her a job.
To thank her, Cap seems to do little more than share a kiss with her, before seemingly never seeing her again, even after the Blip. Is this really an honorable moment?
There’s probably a good explanation for why it seems like Sharon’s sacrifice was completely ignored, and fans have offered two. Either they forgot the character existed, or actress Emily VanCamp just wasn’t available to film as much as she was. Regardless, something is definitely wrong.
Others think Rogers upstaging her will result in some kind of follow-up in Captain America: New World Order while Sam Wilson continues to consolidate himself in the role that his former friend occupies. Plus some further speculation that he’s with Doom or a Skrull.
Rogers went AWOL as a result of Civil warbut was able to keep up with fellow convicts Wanda Maximoff and Vision as seen in Avengers: Infinity War.
However, ultimately, this is not a big deal. Considering how often characters appeared and disappeared, and then reappeared in the MCU, it could be how the world works. The big question is whether Steve Rogers is still alive after aging in End of the game.
Captain America: Civil War is available to stream on Disney Plus.
