Captain America's Emily VanCamp Feels Weird Being Part Of The MCU

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is 10 years old and a ton of actors have appeared in the ever-growing library of films during that time. This was never more apparent than when the vast majority of this talent both in front of and behind the camera assembled for a class photo. Emily VanCamp, who plays Sharon Carter, received the call to appear for the picture, and while she greatly enjoyed her time in the movies, it felt super weird to be included with all those famous people.

It's been amazing. I mean everyone has been incredible, and the movies are amazing, so it's just incredible to be a part of them. But being on that stage (class photo) was just weird, I was like, 'What am I doing here?' Who said to call Emily VanCamp because this is crazy.

Emily VanCamp appears in the MCU as Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter. VanCamp has played the character in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War and, although she hasn't appeared as much as other characters, VanCamp has loved the experience of being in these films.

During an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, VanCamp talked for a bit about her experience in the MCU and how much she has enjoyed being a part of these movies. Marvel changed the landscape of modern blockbuster filmmaking, and the studio has employed dozens of actors, many of whom have gone on to become superstars. When assembled in one room with all of those people, weird was the primary emotion for VanCamp. The actress took part in Marvel's class photo celebrating a decade of hit movies, and VanCamp felt a reasonable amount of oddness being associated with big name actors like Samuel L. Jackson, Jeff Goldblum, and Scarlett Johansson.

I'd be pretty flabbergasted too if I were suddenly rubbing elbows with Michael Douglas, but VanCamp shouldn't sell herself short. She's been in only two Marvel movies, but both of them are really good. Sharon Carter is a reliable supporting character in both aforementioned films, especially in Civil War where she helps Captain America get out of some jams by providing support from inside the government.

It's unknown when we'll next see Sharon Carter, but if it's going to be anywhere, it'll be Avengers 4. The movie hits theaters on May 3, 2019. For everything else hitting theaters that year, be sure to check out our 2019 movie release guide.
