Anna Kendrick Likely To Nab Female Lead In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER?

According to questionable sources quoting co-director Anthony Russo, Up in the Air actress Anna Kendrick will likely play the female lead in the Marvel sequel, over other contenders.

Days ago, three actresses―Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones, Anna Kendrick―were revealed as front-runners for the undisclosed female lead role in the forthcoming Marvel sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And now questionable sources from Vietnam newspaper Laodong are apparently quoting the anticipated film's co-director, Anthony Russo, suggesting that the latter actress listed will likely get the role. [Google Translate:]

“There are a lot of good talent, but Anna Kendrick gently mixes features tough, especially over time, she has proven her own ability. Can't say anything, but we do not deny hope to have the opportunity to collaborate with her in the near future”

Again, these “close sources” are in indeed questionable. Therefore, don't be surprised if news emerges that contradicts what's being reported above. Anyhow, in case Anna Kendrick does land the role, it's somewhat relevent to know the 27-year-old actress received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Up in the Air. If she gets the role, strongly believed to be Sharon Carter, 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.

@kevberg, his profile pic is a picture of Borat. It's self explanatory
kevberg - 8/22/2012, 8:03 PM
@ sorry, I steer clear of crap like borat. It sounded like a stupid comment.
kevberg - 8/22/2012, 8:06 PM
regardless , she's a hot chick and I hope she's good in this.
dellamorte1872 - 8/22/2012, 8:12 PM
why recast if her character was at the tail end of CA:FA? confusing
JatevinM - 8/22/2012, 8:13 PM
I dont see her as Sharon she just doesnt fit the role
blite32 - 8/22/2012, 8:15 PM

I think she is a fantastic actor. I hope this rumor is true.
BlazinTexan - 8/22/2012, 8:20 PM
She looks just like my mother. When she was the same age of course. Shit I'm getting old.
Bigred20 - 8/22/2012, 8:28 PM
I don't feel like she'll fit in
In the marvel universe
Vital - 8/22/2012, 8:28 PM
I hate how bitchy she looks lol. Oh well. Nothing I can do or say that will matter anyhow haha.
CoolantTech - 8/22/2012, 8:29 PM
I was kinda hoping it would be Poots but she's good too

I thought I read she was of Irish descent. It doesn't matter anyway she had my vote and still does over those other 2 chicks. At least she's American :)
0bstreperous - 8/22/2012, 8:30 PM
community is not a good show i have a gut feeling this movie will notbe any good i called it hear

id wager that iron man 3 is good but a little same old
CrazyKeaton - 8/22/2012, 8:36 PM

Nick56 - 8/22/2012, 8:37 PM
I hope she gets the part. Great actress and she is very beautiful
daywalker1623 - 8/22/2012, 8:45 PM
She could play Sin, Red Skulls daughter. Either way I wouldn't kick her outta bed.
daywalker1623 - 8/22/2012, 8:48 PM
All three ladies they named are short an don't really fit the role of Sharon Carter. However hollywood of course can do their magic(milk crate) and make em look taller.
jascurio - 8/22/2012, 8:49 PM
Aww yeah, I was going to vote for her anyways. I love her.
Lozzy - 8/22/2012, 8:51 PM
Hope she gets the role, I guess I could picture her as Sharon Carter.
RAWRG - 8/22/2012, 8:52 PM
I really hope she gets the role, she was great in 50/50.
Jolt17 - 8/22/2012, 8:53 PM
She's...pretty, to say the least. Anyway; yeah, I'd love to see her as Sin.
Asterisk - 8/22/2012, 8:58 PM
You guys know that she's dating Edgar Wright, correct? Hmmm...
TrueRedBlue - 8/22/2012, 8:59 PM
I freakin' LOVE her. I can't get enough of her onscreen. She's just sooo.... cute!
Dunejedi - 8/22/2012, 9:00 PM
I thought she was alright in the couple of things I saw her in, but I don't like her for Sharon Carter. There's just something slightly. . . off about her face. She's not ugly per se, but not attractive either. Also, she's tiny. Cap would wreck her.
JasonZumwalt - 8/22/2012, 9:01 PM

WASP!
TheBumblingIdiot - 8/22/2012, 9:02 PM
Damn TheIrishAvenger she is hot Hopefully her acting is as good as her rack
StormLoganSummers - 8/22/2012, 9:07 PM
All three choices look like girls. They need to cast someone who looks like a woman.
AlexRival - 8/22/2012, 9:11 PM
I swear she's the prettiest person in movies, I'd cuddle her so hard.
dav1dca1n - 8/22/2012, 9:13 PM
what if were not playing Sharon Carter... but SIN?!?
superotherside - 8/22/2012, 9:17 PM
IDK. I'd still like Hayley Atwell to play Sharon, that just seems so perfect, like Cap could mistake her for Peggy and call her Peggy when they first met or something. It would be quite amazing. :)
SunSp0t - 8/22/2012, 9:19 PM
Shes pretty! :)
AutobotCommander84 - 8/22/2012, 9:22 PM
I loved her in 50/50.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 8/22/2012, 9:24 PM
she can "Nab my lead" any day
daywalker1623 - 8/22/2012, 9:25 PM
I second JasonZumwalt. She would actually be good as Janet Pym aka Wasp.
JasonCYates - 8/22/2012, 9:35 PM
What about Amanda Righetti from the final scene in CA:TFA??? She is credited as Sharon Carter.
