Image of the Day: Set pic confirms whose funeral it is in Captain America: Civil War

A couple days ago, we saw filming pics from the set of Captain America: Civil War in Atlanta, where Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) were attending a funeral. Now we have confirmation of whose funeral it actually is.

Captain America: Civil War spoilers below, obviously.

As it was feared, the funeral our good ol’ Cap is attending is that of his best girl, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). In Winter Soldier, Peggy was already well advanced in years and obviously suffering from Alzheimer’s (or something similar). So, even though it’s infinitely sad, it’s not that much of a shocker that it’s actually Peggy who is in that casket — especially since it was draped with a British flag, as you can see below.

If you already miss Peggy, you'll get to see her again in Ant-Man on July 17, and in the upcoming second season of Marvel's Agent Carter.
