After casting Anthony Mackie as The Falcon in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier last month, Marvel Studios is currently searching for a female lead in the much anticipated sequel to last year's Captain America: The First Avenger. The New York Daily News reports that Marvel is looking at Anna Kendrick (The Twilight Saga, 50/50), Imogen Poots (Fright Night, Jane Eyre) and Felicity Jones (Like Crazy, Chalet Girl) for the role. The identity of the character is currently unknown, but is speculated to be S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell in Captain America: The First Avenger). Kendrick will next be seen in End Of Watch, which releases September 21st. Jones recently lost the female lead for Paramount's Jack Ryan reboot to Keira Knightly.


L-R: Anna Kendrick, Felicity Jones, Imogen Poots


Chris Evans is set to reprise his role as Steve Rogers/Captain America, while Sebastian Stan will return to play Bucky Barnes (who becomes the assassin "Winter Soldier", as suggested by the title). Joe and Anthony Russo (Community) are set to direct, while the script was written by Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus. The story picks up "where Marvel's The Avengers leaves off, as Steve Rogers 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."

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is set to hit theaters April 4th, 2014.

Some really good choices here.
jessepostal - 8/19/2012, 11:53 AM
I don't think it'll be Sharon carter, Sharon was in tfa at the very end and It was Amanda righetti, I hope she returns
SmellofDuty - 8/19/2012, 11:54 AM
Poots… Lawlz.
criple15 - 8/19/2012, 11:56 AM
@jessepostal: She was never spelled out that she was Agent 13... So we still wait to see if there is even going to be a Sharon Carter at all ;)
jazzman - 8/19/2012, 11:58 AM
i wont be surprise Anna Kendrick would be casted in a Marvel movie since shes dating Edgar Wright :P lol

@jessepostal

Amanda righetti was not Sharon Carter she just played a random S.H.I.E.L.D agent.
NerdyGeek - 8/19/2012, 12:00 PM
I'd hit them!
FrankGarret - 8/19/2012, 12:00 PM
I'm afraid I wouldn't buy any of them as a secret agent. I admit I wanted Hayley Atwell to play Sharon, or Abbie Cornish.
80sFace - 8/19/2012, 12:00 PM
Kendrick too small to play Sharon Carter
NerdyGeek - 8/19/2012, 12:01 PM
But seriously, Imogen Poots is my choice
FrankGarret - 8/19/2012, 12:01 PM
@jessepostal

That's incorrect. You check out IMDb, or the blu-ray, and all it will say is "SHIELD Agent"

@TheIrishAvenger: You're really violent towards women. :P
RexBlazer1 - 8/19/2012, 12:06 PM
How about they tell us name of the female lead in Captain America: The Winter soldier BEFORE we decide who's playing her?
kamikazeturtle - 8/19/2012, 12:08 PM
I love Kendrick but I can't picture her in the role :S. I heard Jones was great in Like Crazy. Have no opinion on Poots. I admit, my ideal would be for Atwell to play her, even if it might seem silly.

Oh CaptainMy Captain

IMOGEN!
She is amazing! She deserves larger roles. She is just fantastic.
clag - 8/19/2012, 12:13 PM
I love Anna Kendrick... shes hot hot hot

HeadPool420 - 8/19/2012, 12:14 PM
I like em all but I honestly can't vote till I know what role they're up for.:/
CBMM1 - 8/19/2012, 12:14 PM
Anna Kendrick for sure.
RexDartEskimoSpy - 8/19/2012, 12:19 PM
None of these actresses strike me as tough SHIELD agents, but then I'm pretty sure a strong breeze would knock over Cobie Smulders.

I used to love Anna Kendrick, then I was forced to sit through the trailer for that god-awful Glee knockoff movie before Amazing Spider-Man. Now I want her dead. Anyway, you know Edgar Wright's gonna put her in Ant-Man. (Janet?)

Now I'm in love with Felicity Jones after I saw her on Craig Ferguson. Never heard of the Farts girl.
RunDTC - 8/19/2012, 12:23 PM
if they are trying to find someone to play Sharon Carter, BRING BACK HAYLEY ATWELL!
Vapes - 8/19/2012, 12:25 PM
None of them look like Sharon Carter to me.

Maybe it's someone else.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/19/2012, 12:32 PM
Yeah, Cap doesn't need a love interest, now if they went the Ultimates route where him and Widow got it on, I could see, but please for The Winter Soldier just make all female cast members SHIELD Agents or Villains. Cap still needs to suffer from losing Peggy; He needs to weep over her grave at the cemetery. Anyways, WOO HOO! Captain O' Fuggin' America!

IMOGEN POOTS!!!!
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/19/2012, 12:45 PM
Sarah Carter would be cool Sharon Carter if that character shows up.

Anyway i hope they give Cap new costume in the vein of this. Just hide the ears.

Hawkeye´s and Black Widow´s costumes should be closer to the concept arts of that cancelled Avengers game too.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/19/2012, 12:51 PM
@DeLarge I'm not too fond of the Ultimates Costume, but Give him wings (Painted or metal) and I'll abide :)
AnonymousGuy - 8/19/2012, 12:52 PM
What!? No, wait! Don't cast Anna Kendrick as Sharon! CAST HER AS THE WASP!
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/19/2012, 12:52 PM
And for the Love of God, let his Ears show, no more ear-muffs, please!
Kiltman - 8/19/2012, 12:55 PM
If its for Sharon Carter, I go Imogen Poots.

Can't see Kendrick, as much as I like her, as secret agent.

What about her for Wasp though?
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/19/2012, 12:55 PM
@AnonymousGuy Whaa?! No! Janet goes to Baccarin!

If it is Sharon Carter, they should bring Hayley Atwell back.
