Marvel’s heroines are gearing up for some serious action in Captain America: Civil War, and now the film’s biggest stars are giving a sneak peek into their evolving roles.
In this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the film, Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen and Emily VanCamp explain where their characters are in the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
VanCamp’s character, Sharon Carter (aka S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent 13), will play a larger role in Civil War than her appearance in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, where she spent most of her time undercover as Cap’s literal girl next door.
“I’m really glad to be a part of it,” VanCamp says. “Sharon Carter, she’s a little sassier. We get to do a little bit of fighting in this, it’s awesome.”
A new behind the scenes video from Captain America: Civil War has surfaced from Good Morning America. You can watch it below. Emily appears at the 1:50 mark.
Also, some upcoming events! Promo for the film will start soon. All this may not apply to Emily but I thought some of you may want to know anyway. It’s about to get incredibly busy around these parts. I will try my best to report everything new I see. If you have any tips, please don’t hesitate to tweet me! Thanks!
It is also rumored that the cast will be split into two camps (Team Cap and Team Iron Man) and that Emily will be with Team Iron Man during the promotional tour of Europe (while Team Cap will be in Asia). I’ve read that Emily will appear at the Berlin premiere on April 21st.
The tentative premiere dates are as follows:
Emily attended her first event in months last night: The Canadian Screen Awards. She was a presenter for the Best Actor Award. I unfortunately have a very busy week ahead of me so I will not be able to update the site with pictures until later this week. For now, here is a video interview Emily did last night on the red carpet. If I find more, I will be sure to post about them on the main site page.
A bit late posting this so I apologize but Emily will be a presenter at the Canadian Screen Awards tomorrow night at 8 PM EST on CBC. Please remember that Daylight Savings Time is in effect Sunday so if you get the channel the awards are on (CBC), make sure you record it at the right time for your timezone. This is a Canadian channel so it may not available everywhere. Please check your local cable providers.
From the press release – “Fans can engage with the Canadian Screen Awards leading up to and throughout the gala on Fanzone.Academy.ca and by following @Academy_NET on Twitter and Instagram using #CdnScreen16, as well as on Facebook by liking the Canadian Screen Awards“
You can watch Emily and co-star from Captain America: Civil War, Elizabeth Olsen, introduce a new program by Marvel for young girl scientists. For more information on the program, visit captainamericachallenge.com. Plus not even a day later (since the second trailer came out yesterday) and we have gotten our wish! First footage of Emily as Sharon Carter / Agent 13! Both can be found in the video below.
Marvel Studios is increasing their girlpower on the big screen, and behind the scenes they’re looking for some talented science-loving youngsters as well.
Marvel’s partnering with the National Academy of Sciences’ Science & Entertainment Exchange for a program where girls 15-18, and in grades 10-12, can submit projects they feel can change the world with a short video that demonstrates their idea and explains its far-reaching potential.
In conjunction with the release of Captain America: Civil War May 6, “Girls Reforming the Future Challenge” is geared toward female applicants who are interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) projects and share the same goals as the Avengers on screen: “the commitment to safeguard humanity, protect the earth at all costs and make the world a better place for future generations,” says Civil War star Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch and hosts an exclusive introduction video with Emily VanCamp.
Five finalists will be picked to travel to California to present their projects to a panel of experts, and they’ll also receive an invitation to hit the red carpet at the Civil War world premiere at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre April 12, a tour of Walt Disney Studios and a $500 saving account from Synchrony Bank.
In addition, one girl will be selected for the grand prize: an internship at Marvel Studios.
“I’m really excited to meet these exceptional young women who have STEM backgrounds and who maybe also want to be part of more of a creative- and science-based world,” Olsen says. “And Marvel’s a perfect place for that.”
Entries will be accepted through March 26. For applications and more information about the program, visit CaptainAmericaChallenge.com.
