It almost seems like we need to have a separate website devoted to Marvel news. Anyway, it appears that Joe and Anthony Russo are close to finding their woman to star alongside Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, and Sebastian Stan in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While it has not explicitly been stated, the role is likely that of Sharon Carter. Sharon is the niece of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), and would make the most sense to be the lead character in this film. She’s been Cap’s girlfriend and was also a SHIELD agent at one point, so she fits in the world perfectly. Anyway Marvel has shortened it’s list to three acresses:
While Anna Kendrick is the biggest name and is an actress I really like, I don’t know that this role is right for her. She does bright and bubbly well, but I can’t imagine her to be any kind of agent of SHIELD.
Imogen Poots just looks a little young to me, but she’s gorgeous and I think could pull off the strength required for a character like Sharon.
Felicity Jones I know nothing about but from a quick google search, she looks like she could easily play a relative of Peggy Carter. They have a bit of a likeness, I just know nothing of her skill set as an actress.
Anyway they decide to go, I think they are all pretty good choices. Kendrick might surprise me considering, she’s probably the best actress out of the bunch and this would give her more of a lead role than she’s had up to this point. I bet they have this all wrapped up within the next few weeks.
Same. I love Kendrick but don’t think this is the role for her. Sharon Carter is important but I really hope this is the phase 2 movie to do more with Maria Hill, who was the flattest and most useless character in the avengers.
