Here we go again. It's time for us to put on our debating caps and sound off on who we think should play the female lead in another Marvel sequel. This time around, we're talking about Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Deadline reports that five actresses are testing for a role in the sequel. The site also confirms that Black Widow will appear in the film.
The actresses currently shortlisted for a "love interest role" are (in order of pics below) Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four), Alison Brie (Community), Imogen Poots (Fright Nights, Jane Eyre) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downtown Abbey).
Even though the specific character hasn't been revealed, it's pretty safe to say that these actresses are auditioning for the Sharon Carter role. There's no mention of Anna Kendrick or Felicity Jones, who were rumored a couple months ago as a potential candidates for the role, so we can presume that they have moved on to work on other projects.
Imogen Poots is the only holdover from the initial shortlist, which leads us to believe that she has the inside track on the role. Brie and Palmer have pretty extensive resumes and Palmer certainly fits the look of Carter. Clarke and Findlay seem like dark horses, given their limited cult fame brought about by their television shows.
Captain America gears up to begin production in a couple of months and arrives in theaters April 4, 2014.
Who do you like from the revised list of candidates for (we presume) Sharon Carter?
