On the road to. Not in.

Marvel have.

Sharon's always been a supporting player. So that comparison doesn't work for me really.
The point stands. Just because the lack of something doesn't hurt a movie, doesn't mean we can't want to see them and lament their lack of involvement.

But like I keep saying, we won't know until we see it for ourselves. It's all spec at this point and assumptions.
I'm fairly positive that there has to be better ways to show Steve's past vs. Steve's present than showing Steve still pining after Peggy, even though it has been two years, and she's now married and over him.
