As fans attempt to figure out who the mysterious Power Broker is in Marvel’s The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. The Hollywood Reporter was able to speak with actress Emily VanCamp on the “theory” that former S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Sharon Carter is in fact the villain dealing in super-soldier serum.
VANCAMP: “I think that’s a great theory. (Laughs.) I obviously can’t say anything. I’ve also been saying, ‘Yes, there are three episodes left, but there are characters yet to be seen, which is also exciting.’ But I think it’s great that there are things swirling out there. Can I confirm that? No, 100 percent not. But you never know.”
Sharon Carter certainly has reasons to be angry with both the U.S. government and the Avengers, as she mentioned in Episode 3 that she had been on the run since the events of Captain America: Civil War. In that film, Carter aided international fugitives and we didn’t see what she was up to between Civil War and Endgame, a lot of things could have happened to her in this period of time. Hiding out in Madripoor and suddenly being aware the trio arrived on the island seemed a little too convenient, unless she was tipped off by someone else.
I have my suspensions the Power Broker could end up being Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky aka Abomination, given he’s expected to have a major role in the She-Hulk series and has taken the super-soldier serum himself in The Incredible Hulk. Blonsky would also seemingly be aware of the serum supply that Thunderbolt Ross (Ross gave him the serum) has and potentially could have acquired classified information about people like Isaiah Bradley over the years.
Although, someone like Tim Blake Nelson’s Dr. Samuel Sterns aka The Leader could just easily be interested in the serum too. Tim recently starred in HBO’s hit sequel series Watchmen.
