Default Who should be the "Female Lead" in the next film? Agent 13 or Black Widow?

Well it's no secret that there are some, if not a lot, who wished that Agent 13, aka Sharon Carter, could have been more prominent in "The Winter Soldier".

Needless to say, the belief is that her role will be expanded upon in the third Captain American film.

However, in the same time, many were impressed with both Black Widow's characterization in this film and her chemistry/interactions with Steve Rogers in this film.

So my question is, if you guys had a choice based on what you've seen so far in "The Winter Soldier", who would you guys prefer to be/remain as the "Female Lead" for the next Captain America film between Natasha/Black Widow or Sharon/Agent 13?

Or is there some other character that you guys had in mind?

Why can't we have both?

If forced to choose just one, then I'd pick Sharon. I loved BW and her role in this movie, but I feel like they set it up really well for Sharon to have a much bigger role next time around. Natasha's comments at the end seemed to be deliberately pointing in that direction. I'm hoping that Marvel will finally get off of their collective asses and finally give BW her own movie.

As much as I love BW, it was pretty clear at the end that the Russo brothers are going to use Agent 13 in the next movie.

You know, I gotta admit, major props to the Russos for not going down the cliche route of having Steve and Natasha hooking up with each other.

I mean, seriously, it would have been so easy for them (the Russos) to pair up the two on a romantic note given how great their chemistry was. The intimacy shared between two characters, it's not often I see a fictional pairing between a man and a woman where they can be that close (and not related to each other) and yet still not cross that line.

They're pretty much the MCU's version of Harry and Hermione.lol

Not to mention Evans and Johansson's close friendship offscreen. I actually wouldn't have had much of a problem if Steve and Natasha HAD hooked up precisely because they had such good chemistry. But yes, it was cool to see a superhero movie go the non-traditional route in that regard for once.

I loved BW in this movie, but now its time to giver her her own movie so in Cap 3 I hope Sharon gets more focus.

Give BW a film and elevate Sharon's presence (and have her and Steve fight Crossbones and Sin.)

It's safe to assume that Black Widow won't be in the next Captain America film. They set up Sharon Carter in this film for a reason. It will be Cap, Falcon, and Carter.

It's gonna be Black Widow, since they've already established her as a close ally of Steve's and that she's already worked with Sam and possibly has an unrevealed history with Bucky.

Sharon will have a bigger role, I'm guessing she'll be Steve and Natasha's source in the CIA. She'll offer some help in terms of intelligence or logistics, but she won't be doing the legwork or fighting the big battles.

I think after AOU, BW is primed for a solo movie for herself, because as a supporting character she can't really go higher after 3 Marvel movies without it, so I think it is better to make Sharon the main leading lady in Cap 3.

Default Re: Who should be the "Female Lead" in the next film? Agent 13 or Black Widow?

If I had to pick I guess I would go with Black Widow. Since her role is so much larger than Sharon's, plus her being in 2 other MCU films, I'm naturally more invested in her. She and Steve have great dynamic. He seems to bring out the more playful side of her. That being said, I would actually be surprise if she returned for Cap 3. And I'm going to go on record and say I don't think we'll get a BW movie. I don't think Marvel has any real intention of making one.

As for Sharon, I feel like her role in the MCU could go either way. She could become Steve's love interest in the 3rd film or she could fall to the wayside.

I'm curious, do they maybe want to change Sharon's relation from Peggy Carter? They would only refer to her as Sharon here. She was never revealed as a Carter.

Emily VanCamp and the Russo's all referred to her as "Sharon Carter" in interviews. Also, in her first scene with Cap, she mentioned that she was on the phone with her "aunt." Anyone who knows Sharon from the comics could guess what they're probably referencing.

How is it even possible for Peggy Carter to be her aunt?

According to current Marvel comics continuity, Peggy is Sharon's great-aunt. Calling her "aunt" was probably just easier/simpler and wouldn't arose any suspicion from Cap.

They could potentially make her Peggy's granddaughter, meaning Cap is indirectly responsible for Sharon even being alive.

I voted someone else. Not because I don't want Sharon. It's almost a given she's gonna be a bigger role, possibly the main/lead female role in Cap 3. That said I feel ScarJo as Widow in Cap has been done justice. Maybe have Nat show up in something else during Phase 3. Maybe she'll be in Ant-Man? As for Cap 3 I want them to introduce another female role, I want to see Rachel Leighton/Diamondback. She is a personal favorite of mine and basically kinda the Cap's Catwoman/Bad girl type character with a diamond and serpent theme. Not to mention her backstory ties into Crossbones, so that could be a way to develope both characters. With Sharon in the mix it would be interesting to see good girl/ bad girl type dynamic going on. I know I'm not the only one who would like to see an adaption of Diamondback.

they pretty much set 13 up exactly like they did Natasha in IM2. They telegraphed her playing a larger role in later films.

Let Sharon take over, I was hoping to see more of her in TWS but I like the set up for the bigger role in Cap3.

I gotta admit, a part of me feels bad that I just want to see Steve Rogers actually enjoy having the luxury of knowing what it's like to be in a actual romantic relationship with someone within the MCU, and that I'm hoping Sharon ends up taking the challenge...but in the same time, I really don't want her to be lost within the shadow of being CA's love interest.

The trick is to show that she's a badass former SHIELD turned CIA agent who just happens to be dating/sleeping with Cap. She can do fine on her own, she's with Cap because she likes/loves him, period. That's how you do it.

Agent 13, of course!

As much as I liked Black Widow in the Winter Soldier, I feel like she shouldn't stay as a supporting character in Captain America movies. I think after Avengers 2, Black Widow's next appearance should be in a Hulk movie or her own movie.
