Having been introduced in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the great-niece of Peggy Carter had become a love interest for Steve Rogers.VanCamp then reprised this role in Captain America: Civil War, but this was the end of her story.

The writers of Infinity War, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus had confirmed that even though she had appeared in a few scripts, there was too much of Thanos’ story to squeeze in:

“Sharon Carter was a victim of what we came to realize as we were writing it,” Markus had explained.

“Which is that if you’re writing scenes that set up people before the story has gotten to them such as Steve and Sharon trying to make it work in an apartment, they’re gonna go because the movie does not have time to catch up ‘previously on the life of Steve Rogers.’”

They had then explained that the bearded version of Steve Rogers having a relationship had not really fit in with this story.

“Once it became sort of a smash-and-grab type movie, anything that wasn’t on the main A plot about and in response to Thanos collecting stones mostly got jettisoned,” McFeely had said.

Sharon had been last seen in Civil War and had shared a kiss with Captain America and Infinity War could have carried on this storyline. But while there had been a tease of romance between Black Widow and Bruce Banner, the Vision and Scarlet Witch relationship was the focus of this story.

Sharon is absent in the movie like Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Nakia, Valkyrie and Korg.  The writers kept all cards pretty close to their chest regarding if Sharon had been wiped out by Thanos’ finger snap.
