Emilia Clarke and Alison Brie in the Running to Be 'Captain America 2' Leading Lady
Steve Rogers will likely have a new love interest in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier". Deadline shares the words that Marvel Studios has shortlisted five Hollywood beauties to tackle the female lead role in the sequel to "Captain America: The First Avenger".
Those who are reportedly in the running to be Chris Evans' co-star in the film include "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke, "The Five Year Engagement" actress Alison Brie, and "Warm Bodies" beauty Teresa Palmer. The other two, meanwhile, are "Knight of Cups" star Imogen Poots and "Downton Abbey" actress Jessica Brown Findlay.
Marvel neither has said anything about the casting news nor confirmed if the five actresses are indeed testing for the part of Steve Rogers' love interest. In the first movie, Steve's girlfriend was Peggy Carter who was played by British actress Hayley Atwell. In the comic books, Peggy's sister (who was later retconned to be her niece) Sharon Carter was also described as Steve's occasional love interest.
In another news related to "Captain America 2", it was said that Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow would make an appearance in the movie. It's still unclear how her character will fit the plot.
To be directed by the Russo brothers, "Captain America 2" is set to hit theaters across the U.S. on April 4, 2014. It has been rumored that the film will be based on a respected comic book storyline from the 2000s which followed Bucky (played by Sebastian Stan) as brainwashed super-assassin Winter Soldier.
