Mary Elizabeth Winstead Downplays Rumors Of Involvement with CAPTAIN AMERICA Sequel
The majority of roles in Marvel’s 2014 “Phase 2” entry Captain America: The Winter Soldier have seemingly been filled. However, an actress has yet to be named for the “political” action thriller’s female lead, for which a shortlist of contenders made rounds back in October.
Addressing past Captain America: The Winter Soldier rumors and previously auditioning for Justice League's Wonder Woman, Winstead says she'd reconsider either roles, but only if...
And despite not appearing on that list, shortly after it surfaced, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead was said to have the inside track on the role, which was believed to be Sharon Carter. But when HeyUGuys recently caught up with the Scott Pilgrim actress and asked about the rumors, she said:
“To be honest, that was kind of a rumor that I don't know where it came from. I honestly don't know, but it's great,” she continued. But if asked, would the actress be up for the role, or maybe even re-audition for the Wonder Woman part in the upcoming Justice League movie?
“I would love to if it was the right part. That's what everything is about; finding the right role. And I think especially those kind of movies are such a big commitment. They're fantastic, but if you find yourself in a role that you don't feel suits you...you could be playing that role for the rest of your career and that wouldn't be the happiest outcome. So, for me I think I'm just very pragmatic and careful about those things because I wanna make sure I make the right choices for myself. And not just for the Agents, the fans or whoever.”
In related news, there's been speculation that the actress behind Sharon Carter's Aunt Peggy Carter, Hayley Atwell, will return for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And amid a recent interview with ES Magazine, the English actress unquotedly confirmed her involvement; or at least failed to deny it.

Marvel Studios’ “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D, and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.

Jackson, and directed by Joe Russo & Anthony Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “Captain America” first published in 1941 and a comics institution ever since. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. And in addition, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; “Marvel's The Avengers” sequel (title TBA) on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!
