Now that Steve Rogers is gone, a new Captain America is needed in the Marvel universe. Avengers: Endgame led us to think it was going to be Sam Wilson, but we’re not hearing the situation as easy as we assumed. Apparently, in the near future, the MCU could be home to several Captain Americas.
Different Captains, in the future
Recently, we know the news that Marvel is planning on having a diverse range of different Caps running around the franchise. This doesn’t necessarily mean that there’ll be numerous heroes all going by the same alias, though, as we’ve heard that the Young Avengers’ Patriot is being counted as one of these Captain Americas. In the MCU, Eli Bradley will make two black Cap-related characters together with Sam Wilson.
Sequel for Aladdin
Something else we’ve heard from our sources though – the same ones who told us Marvel was developing a She-Hulk show, and that an Aladdin sequel was in the works, both of which were later confirmed – is that the studio wants a female Cap as well. As we know, this idea will first be played with in the upcoming What If..? animated series, in which Peggy Carter will be portrayed as the one to take the super-soldier serum in another reality. You might think that Hayley Atwell could crossover to live-action as Captain Britain, then, but apparently, that’s not the plan.
Sharon Carter might be the one
We’ve been informed that Sharon Carter’s actually the most likely suspect for the MCU’s female Captain America. Sharon AKA Agent 13 has never had any superpowers or any claim to the Cap mantle in the comics, but Marvel Studios have always done their own thing anyway and we already know that we’ll next see Emily VanCamp as the character in Disney Plus’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
This will be the first time she’s turned up since 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, as Sharon didn’t even take part in the big battle at the conclusion of Endgame. VanCamp has teased that Agent 13 has been on the run all this time, due to her part in helping Team Cap escape custody, but it sounds like when she does return, she’ll make a big impact on the MCU.
