'You Can't Tap That!' Hayley Atwell Speaks Out Against Captain America's New Love Interest

A few weeks ago, Genevieve threw out a theory that made a lot of sense: Sharon Carter is an imposter. Nothing about the character played by Emily VanCamp in Captain America: Civil War makes sense. The timeline doesn’t work, and why would she pursue Captain America so soon after her aunt, Agent Carter, died?

For that matter, why would Captain America pursue Sharon so soon after the love of his life died? That’s a question that Hayley Atwell — who plays Agent Carter — has herself. Atwell is bothered by Steve Rogers’ relationship with Sharon Carter, and she has every reason to be.

Here’s what she had to say to IGN about how Agent Carter would feel about Captain America’s new romantic interest:

“Well, first of all she’d be turning over in her grave,” Atwell said, with a grin. “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!”

She didn’t come right out and say it, but I think the implication is there. Steve Rogers’ can’t tap that because Sharon Carter isn’t who she says she is! Then again, according to the latest Steve Rogers’ twist in the comics, Captain America isn’t who he says he is, either.
