Anna Kendrick Keeps Mum On Involvement with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Anna Kendrick Keeps Mum On Involvement with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Seemingly confirming that she's involved to a certain extent, Up in the Air Oscar-nominated actress Anna Kendrick has vaguely responded to possibly starring in the Captain America sequel!

Beyond Anthony Mackie’s ‘Falcon’ role and Hayley Atwell’s coy ‘Peggy Carter’ reprisal, three other actresses — Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones, and Anna Kendrick — slipped through the trades as front-runners for a part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And while Kendrick is reportedly the top choice for the Marvel role, believed to be Sharon Carter, we’ve yet to hear anything from either of the actresses, until now.

Ain’t It Cool News recently caught up with the Academy Award nominated Up in the Air actress, promoting David Ayer’s End of Watch. And in response to a question regarding her involvement with the 2014 sequel, Anna Kendrick reworded the usual “no comment.”

“All I know is that I can not really say anything,” she said before adding “Sorry, man.”

Given that there’re 2 other Marvel sequels currently filming, and recurring ‘Steve Rogers’ actor, Chris Evans recently confirmed that production on the “political thriller” won’t start for another six months, new Captain America: The Winter Soldier casting announcements shouldn’t be expected anytime soon. What do you think?

Described as a political thriller, Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) continues his affiliation with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. With an expected return from James 'Bucky' Barnes (Sebastian Stan), actor Anthony Mackie is also set to star. And Anthony & Joe Russo (“Community,” “You, Me and Dupree”) take over directorial duties from Joe Johnston, who helmed the first film. And “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” hits theaters on April 4, 2014.

Not sure why, but she annoys me.. A great deal.

I don't like the fact cap will have a new love interest soooo soon. I mean shit he just woke up, and helped save the world, he hasn't had too much time to think about Peggy. So why toss him a new possible love interest this soon?
JerBear - 9/17/2012, 11:21 PM
That's not really "seemingly confirming" IMO. If asked the same question, both Felicity Jones and Imogen Poots would say the same thing, regardless of who has or will get the part.
TheGambitFreak - 9/17/2012, 11:21 PM
A want a freaking TRAILER ALREADY! I've always had a thing for her since Scott Pilgrim.
TheGambitFreak - 9/17/2012, 11:24 PM
Someone needs to get in Ashley Johnson's Face and question her about Cap 2. She was way to flirty and had way to much screen time (Including Deleted Scenes) to not be ever seen again.
SpoonWielder - 9/17/2012, 11:24 PM
I miss right before the Avengers came out when there was good news everyday. Now all we get is 'Stars of Comic Book Movies say nothing!'
DCMarvelFreshman - 9/17/2012, 11:32 PM
@JerBear understood. But I said "Seemingly confirming that she's involved to a certain extent" to imply that she has at least auditioned....considering she can't say anything.
Dunejedi - 9/17/2012, 11:37 PM
She's a decent actress, but there's just something off-putting about her face. Seriously hope they don't cast her as Sharon Carter.
Guerillas - 9/17/2012, 11:43 PM
she is pretty! Its refreshing with girls who does not look like anybody else.
smlshin - 9/17/2012, 11:57 PM
For some reason, she doesn't seem like an ideal Sharon Carter. Maybe a SHIELD agent or correct me if I'm wrong, but the Red Skull's daughter? Something?
JerBear - 9/17/2012, 11:59 PM
Sorry man, I misread it. My bad.
DCMarvelFreshman - 9/18/2012, 12:23 AM
@JerBear No worries:)
CarlXVIGarfield - 9/18/2012, 12:40 AM
Oscar nominated actress, well known to huge crowds thru Twilight, likely to become a household name, charming as hell in 50/50.

Marvel would be lucky to get her for Cap2!
EarOne - 9/18/2012, 12:57 AM
i hope her role's NOT sharon carter.
Beaner8127 - 9/18/2012, 1:43 AM
I hope she has nothing to do with this movie. Every movie I see her in I just hate her. Don't know how she got nominated for an Oscar since she comes off as a face put in movies regardless of acting abilities (And I am very generous with calling her a face with hers just annoying me every time I look at it.)
DCjohnny - 9/18/2012, 1:51 AM
she could be a good mary jane though....
Boekelaar - 9/18/2012, 1:57 AM
Kendrick and Edgar Wright are dating maybe we'll see her character pop up in Ant-man (though I don't think Edgar would write her in just for that)
siggisuperman - 9/18/2012, 2:09 AM
Something about her face makes me pissed off
MrChuff - 9/18/2012, 2:18 AM
"Another website didnt get anything out of Anna Kendrick about Cap 2"

What a TOTAL non-story.
AmazingFantasy - 9/18/2012, 3:07 AM
She is hot
Dickel - 9/18/2012, 3:47 AM
She is smokin hot! No two ways about it.
blvdnoise - 9/18/2012, 3:57 AM
Cap better hit that like a super soldier!
TruthNoFodder - 9/18/2012, 4:49 AM
A whole article out of 1 LINE and she says I cant say anything? And you're sentence composition reminds me of a 12 yr old trying to sound smart, "Seemingly confirming that she's involved to a certain extent."

evyllsummer - 9/18/2012, 4:53 AM
I like her ok, but, please, not as Sharon...

thebearjew - 9/18/2012, 5:35 AM
shes cute pretty good actor
Boekelaar - 9/18/2012, 5:42 AM
@TruthNoFooder *your

make sure your grammar is correct when questioning someone else's writing lol

though I do agree with what you're saying
Rothwilder - 9/18/2012, 5:48 AM
I would not say that he had a "love" interest in the first movie. More of an infatuation that never got to pan out. Besides, take away all the comic gloss and he is still a guy. I'm sure he would want some of her :)
RunDTC - 9/18/2012, 5:49 AM
she's a decent actress & I'm not opposed to her being in the film, just not as Sharon. BRING BACK HAYLEY!

Hayley Atwell
PsyGuy - 9/18/2012, 6:05 AM
Well this is a good sign!
Movie would be twice as good with her in it
QuanZen - 9/18/2012, 6:20 AM
I'd rather have some eyecandy in the movie, just sayin...
willyburz - 9/18/2012, 6:41 AM
Sorry for switching it up, you all think christine or twat ever her name is in the two Iron man movies will show up again in Iron Man 3 as a reporter again?!
tripttwe - 9/18/2012, 6:41 AM
I'd hit it. I think you're all thinking too "inside the box" with this one. I think she'd make a perfect Madam Hydra/ Viper, or it could be a tie-in with Iron Man and we get our glimpse of Madame Masque (that way, the face is covered- for all of you idiots that don't appreciate beauty)! My two cents...
willyburz - 9/18/2012, 6:42 AM
ANNNND on another note. Haylee is just a perfect woman!
tripttwe - 9/18/2012, 6:51 AM
@willyburz- I agree. Haylee had the best female supporting role since Michelle Pfeiffer in a CBM....
aurorsand147 - 9/18/2012, 7:02 AM
am i the only one that doesn't see what's the big deal about her. i think Felicity Jones and Imogen Poots are better actress and more beautiful than her.
Logan5 - 9/18/2012, 7:53 AM

No. Those two are great, talented and attractive, but Hayley was perfect in CA:TFA. She was also good in the so-so Prisoner revamp. Actresses that get boob jobs usually make me lose respect for said actresses, but some can pull through and still give great performances. Another that's good despite having two gravity defying balloons on her chest is Rhona Mitra. Look at Sif(Jaime Pressly?) in Thor. She's doesn't have the augmented stripper body, but yet is still smoking hot and is believable in the role.
Logan5 - 9/18/2012, 7:55 AM
Kendrick will be great!
nuclearpriest - 9/18/2012, 7:59 AM
If she really is dating Edgar Wright, as Boekelaar suggested, then maybe this is a little bit of Marvel misdirection and Miss Kendrick is going to play Janet Van Dyne in the Ant-Man movie.
ComicFan523 - 9/18/2012, 8:35 AM
Marvel has made really good casting decisions in the past with their female leads, I trust they'll make the right choice when it comes to finding the best actress to play Sharon Carter.
