Earlier this month, Agent Carter fans received the bad news that ABC has not picked up the show for a third season. To make matters even worse, we learned in last month's blockbuster Captain America: Civil War that Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) has died, with a mourning Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) serving as a pall bearer at her funeral. While Captain America: Civil War was beloved by fans and critics alike, Hayley Atwell recently revealed how much she didn't like at least one aspect of this superhero movie.
Towards the middle of Captain America: Civil War, Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter, a.k.a. Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp), Peggy's niece, finally kissed. We first met Agent 13 in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, posing as Steve Rogers' neighbor as an undercover operative for S.H.I.E.L.D., before Cap ultimately learned the truth about her work. Hayley Atwell attended Dallas Comic Con over the weekend, where she told IGN how much she didn't like that kiss between Steve and Sharon, and how Peggy would have actually felt about.
"Well, first of all she'd be turning over in her grave. She'd be like 'no.' And she'd inject herself with the blue serum and become a super villain. She'd break out of her coffin and ground [Sharon]. She'd ground her. Then she'd kick Steve's ass as well. I just feel that, you know - I wouldn't want to date my great aunt's guy. It just feels like it crosses an incestuous boundary. And Peggy just died. That's even more disrespectful, right? It's like, 'don't touch that. You can't tap that!'"
What's interesting is Steve Rogers didn't even know Sharon was related to Peggy Carter until she gave the eulogy at Peggy's funeral in Captain America: Civil War. After their kiss, we didn't see any more from Steve and Sharon, and it's unclear if future movies like Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 will show their relationship progressing. After all, both Cap and Agent 13 will be quite busy dealing with the nefarious Thanos and his quest to retrieve the Infinity Stones.
Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 will start shooting back-to-back this November, over what has been reported to be a massive nine-month shoot. Avengers 3 will hit theaters on May 4, 2018, with Avengers 4 arriving on May 3, 2019, closing out Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We'll be sure to keep you posted with more updates on these highly-anticipated movies, along with the rest of the MCU as soon as more details come in.
