There is little doubt that Power Broker's identity is currently the biggest mystery in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. But is it possible that the truth has been exposed by a small detail? A new theory might confirm that Sharon Carter is the mysterious villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series.
At this point, it's no secret that fans believe Sharon Carter is Power Broker. Some have pointed out that the former Agent 13 debuted on the show in the episode named after the villain. In addition to that, she was visibly upset over the death of Doctor Nagel.
The latest episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier allegedly dropped more clues about Sharon being Power Broker when she somehow had access to satellites. In addition to that, she has no problem getting through checkpoints.
So is Sharon actually Power Broker? One theory points out that it's as simple as looking at her phone. It is suggested that this could be connected to Rian Johnson's tip on finding the bad guy in films. While promoting Knives Out, the filmmaker revealed that Apple does not allow their product to be used by villains. Hence, anyone who doesn't have an iPhone is a suspect.
Interestingly, Sharon doesn't have an iPhone in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Although this can easily be explained by the fact that she is on the run and that cheaper options are more accessible, it's still interesting to consider that Apple may have refused to let the character be armed with their product.
