Even with various shooting locations locked in for early next year, Marvel's forthcoming sequel, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is still in the casting stages; at least in the media's eye. And long before The Grey actor Frank Grillo surfaced as a new potential cast addition, a shortlist made rounds for the sequel's female lead, in which five actresses - Emilia Clarke, Jessica Brown Findlay, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, and Alison Brie - were in contention for. However, according to the Daily Express, Brown-Findlay is the “front-runner” for the role believed to be Sharon Carter.

Weeks after the aforementioned shortlist hit, reliable sources had reported that Marvel and duo-directors Joe and Anthony Russo were strongly considering Mary Elizabeth Winstead. But the Scott Pilgrim actress has since debunked the so-called rumor on her Twitter account, as expected. Nonetheless, if the Daily Express isn't reporting the shortlist a little late to the game, and playing favorites, then it seems Jessica Brown-Findlay will nab the role. 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” 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. Starring Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Cobie Smulders with Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and is based on Marvel's classic Super Hero Captain America, who first appeared on the pages of “Captain America Comics” (#1) in March, 1941. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is presented by Marvel Studios. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing & Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso & Stan Lee are executive producers. The film releases August 1, 2014, & is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Nothing beats this though...

The Kevin Feige guide to negotiations for non-essential characters.

Kevin "Emily Clarke, Alison Brie, and Jessica Brown-Findlay, it is truly so great to see you"

*Russo Brothers sitting quietley in the corner*

Kevin-"Now as you know at Marvel Studios we are star-makers, look at Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johanson they are all among Hollywood eliete after Marvel Studios roles. Now we are going to play a game, im going to start by naming how many pictures we want to sign you to and you say when itr get to to many. 3....4.....5.....6....7....8""

Alison Brie- "I cannot do eight films"

Kevin- "Louis can you escort Alison out of the building. Now girls, since we have agreed to eight films lets play another game, ill start naming off acceptable prices for the first picture and you tell me when its too low. 300K, 250K, 200K, 150K, 100K, 50K.

Emily Clarke- "50K is cutting it close for me".

Kevin- "Congragulations on getting the role Jessica Brown-Findlay, you have won the audition process".

PLEASE BE SECRET CONCEPT ART HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT, PLEASE!

She's amazing. She was gorgeous and scary on Misfits, and was absolutely heart wrenchingly great in The Black Mirror episode "15 Million Merits".
I HOPE she doesn't have to put on too strong of an american accent and doesn't have TOO MUCH sex appeal, because she can totally nail the soft but bad-ass touch that Haley did in the first movie.
RAWRG - 10/27/2012, 5:23 PM
why dont they just bring back Atwell as Sharon Carter and all of everyone's problems will be fixed :)
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 10/27/2012, 5:30 PM
@RAWG Why can't they do that with Stone and MJ? It's gonna be weird when Gwen Stacy is hotter than MJ...
superotherside - 10/27/2012, 5:32 PM
I don't think I've seen anything with her in it, but she looks the part good enough. Hope they keep the blonde hair from the comics. She could probably wear a wig. Wouldn't mind if Hayley Atwell returned as Sharon either. In fact I might even prefer it. It would (hopefully) shut up a lot of the haters about Dominic Cooper playing Tony Stark once RDJ got too old.

TheFreakHasAHotA**Girlfriend Agreed on the concept art. I want that to be Cap's new suit so bad.

ATWELL ATWELL ATWELL
TheFirstAvenger97 - 10/27/2012, 5:42 PM
Captain America approves!
LordKhorne - 10/27/2012, 5:42 PM
@Rhinoman, who the hell is Emily Clarke?
Reasonnnn - 10/27/2012, 5:51 PM
She can do sexy, a good actress and is a Brit, so why not?
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 10/27/2012, 6:01 PM
Atwell and Chris Evans had great chemistry in CA:TFA.


Damn straight.

SuperDude001 - 10/27/2012, 6:07 PM
She's a nice actress and all but I don't believe it for one reason and that is the Daily Express. I just don't trust any CBM news reports from UK newspapers that have 'Daily' in the title.
jimpinto24 - 10/27/2012, 6:25 PM
I wish Marvel & The Russo Bros. would just cast Inogen Poots as Sharon Carter. Jessica Brown Findlay may be hot, but she doesn't fit the part. (IMO)
Optimus83 - 10/27/2012, 6:43 PM
Who plays Sharon Carter???. ...Who???
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/27/2012, 7:01 PM
She looks like a great pick for Sharon Carter. She's hot, but in no way, and I mean NO WAY, no where near as hot as the stunning Hayley Atwell.





@cipher - HOT D@MN, bro!



Amazing pics there, bro....


;P
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/27/2012, 7:12 PM
Again, a great pick (if Marvel decides to cast her as Sharon), but if it can be possible (but I'm not too sure), I would like to see Marvel taking another look at Amanda Righetti for Sharon Carter.



I know that at the moment she's pregnant and all, but it would be great if they considered her. I don't know. Wishful thinking. :)

patriautism - 10/27/2012, 7:15 PM
She did just get killed off of Downton Abbey, so maybe this is the reason why.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 10/27/2012, 7:17 PM
I want to lick her thighs!



OverlyManlyMan - 10/27/2012, 7:17 PM
What bothered me by Captain America's costume aside from the helmet in Avengers was the belt. It looked cheesy blue, should of went went a brown one. But nonetheless excited for the sequel!
Jerec350 - 10/27/2012, 7:21 PM
Haley Atwell is still the absolute best choice. In the comics Sharon is identical to Peggy except for the blonde hair. If not Atwell then I would definitely be very cool with Amanda Righetti. I'm not digging this other girl at all.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/27/2012, 7:29 PM
Hmm, now that I think about (and definitely no disrespect to this beautiful woman), but she's an 'okay' pick for Sharon, not so much 'great'. Again, no disrespect towards her, but maybe they can continue looking at more actresses for the role of Sharon Carter. :)
TheMarvelWay - 10/27/2012, 7:32 PM
The race to be the girl who takes Cap's Super Soldier Virginity!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/27/2012, 7:40 PM
@cipher - Lmfaoooo at those gifs, bro.



Cheers to you, bro. Good as always....



:)
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/27/2012, 7:41 PM
@darkmetal - Lmao, yeah. No sh!t. :P
RR51 - 10/27/2012, 7:44 PM
No one beats Atwell




RAWRG - 10/27/2012, 7:55 PM
@TheFreak agreed Emma Stone as MJ would be awesome and she is obviously hotter than Woodley
Shadowelfz - 10/27/2012, 8:49 PM
TheFreak- Agreed. It will be hard finding a hotter chick than Atwell.
MrRockway - 10/27/2012, 9:26 PM
Argh, she's really pretty but i saw her on Misfits and her acting skills sucks.

I still prefer Winstead, she really don't confirms OR denies anything on her twitter, this is not the only film that she is 'rumored' to join so we'll have to wait.
TheRationalOne - 10/27/2012, 9:35 PM
It's amazing how many casting directors are actually on this site. You guys sure know your stuff! How was her audition process? You must share...

CaptainTumeria - 10/27/2012, 10:49 PM
Not bad. Though I was kind of hoping for Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
XavierLehnsherr - 10/27/2012, 11:11 PM
Hayley Titwell should do Tomb Raider.
thebearjew - 10/28/2012, 12:21 AM
WHAT? Hayley Atwell isnt reprising her role???????????
god shes gorgeous i want to marry her!
ALSO WHERE DO YOU GUYS GET THESE GIFS FROM?
mgeoff88 - 10/28/2012, 12:51 AM
I thought Mary Elizabeth Winstead was already casted in this role?

Well, she's a great actress, is Enlgish, and she could pass as a descendent of Hayley Atwell. And not too mention she's gorgeous:








@TheAmazingSpidey I agree that even though as gorgeous as Jessica is, she isn't as stunning as Hayley Atwell.

Everytime in CA:TFA when she was in a scene, I couldn't take my eyes off of her.

@RR51 No one could argue with that. :)

@MrRockway What? I thought she nailed the whole cult leader with brainwashing superpowers thing.
MrRockway - 10/28/2012, 1:55 AM
@mgeoff88 Winstead post this on her twitter: https://twitter.com/M_E_Winstead/status/257939341203103745

and everyone thinks she's talking about CA2, but who knows? she's been rumored for a lot of projects since 2010. (and recently one in particularly with Shiloz Fernandez, a movie called Johnny about champion boxer Johnny Tapia)

Funny thing is Latino Review coment on her post:

‏@Latinoreview

@M_E_Winstead Deny Deny Deny...I hope you do get it though :-)

So i think we'll have to wait and see.


TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/28/2012, 2:18 AM
@mgeoff88 - I hear ya, man. Gorgeous? Yes. Stunning and/or unbelieveably hot as Atwell? Not close. (Again, no disrespect towards her) :)
TheSoulEater - 10/28/2012, 4:00 AM
Hey hey hey!

Mary E. was supposed to be her >:(
Theunderdog - 10/28/2012, 4:35 AM
I watch a few episodes of Downtown abbey I like her she is really good actress but I think she is type I can see carrying gun and run around

I hope they pick a tough blond looking actress
