Captain America: The Winter Soldier has narrowed down some lovely ladies for a lead role

Aug. 20, 2012by: Paul Shirey

As CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER continues to round out its cast, the frontrunners for the female lead role have been announced, which comes down to a race between Anna Kendrick (UP IN THE AIR), Imogen Poots (FRIGHT NIGHT), and Felicity Jones (LIKE CRAZY).  Although it hasn't been revealed just who these lovely actresses are vying to play, the answer shouldn't be too difficult.

Based on the storyline that directors Joe and Anthony Russo have chosen and the fact that they've already cast Anthony Mackie as The Falcon, with Sebastian Stan reprising his Bucky/Winter Soldier role, the next logical choice would be to find a Sharon Carter/Agent 13.  In the comics, Carter is an on-again-off-again SHIELD agent and, most notably, the niece of Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.

In current continuity, Sharon Carter has served as the girlfriend of Steve Rogers and maintained that status for quite a while now.  I think all of these candidates have potential for the role, but I'd most like to see it go to Kendrick, as she has shown great spark and charisma in her roles so far.  Poots is a fine choice as well and Jones has the closest similarity to Atwell, but I don't think a carbon copy is on order here.  It'll be interesting to see which way the filmmakers go.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER hits theaters on April 4, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Who would YOU like to see cast as Agent Sharon Carter? I like the choices here, but I'm a big Ali Larter fan and this has got her name written all over it...

Wonder if they'll be including Red Skull's daughter, Sin, as well. That's a character that could translate pretty well to the big screen.

I think Kendrick is incredible...

Sexy, smart, and funny... But I don't really see her fitting this part. I think Felicity Jones would be the best pick from the three, but to be honest, I'm not sure any one of them would be the best possible fit for the role.

If they can't get Righetti back, then none of the above. As an alternative, I'd suggest Dominique McElligott from the AMC series Hell On Wheels. She's got that classic beauty look, she's blonde, AND she can act.

Although Anna Kendrick is a beautiful specimen, I think she would be the worst choice for this part. I think Ali Larter, Amanda Seyfried (um, yes pls?) a blonde Jessica Biel (um, hell yes pls?), Megan Park (would def fit w/ the look)

Amanda Righetti

In response to solitaire's post, did anyone else think that was just Scarlett Johannson dressed up to like like she was from the WWII era so Captain would be more comfortable? I remember I was completely surprised when I first found out that was a completely different actress. Her resemblance to Johannson is crazy! But I'd definitely sign up for her to return as Sharon Carter since she looks like Atwell too

They could go older and cast Patricia Clarkson.

All three sounds great, especially that they were the narrowed choices. I don't care which will be picked.

This should be obvious

Get Amanda Righetti back. She played the agent who goes into Steve's "hospital room" after he wakes up. She is gorgeous, and resembles Atwell. It would make sense to have that agent be sharon

Felicity Jones; there's certainly a resemblance to Hayley Atwell there and that would be appropriate given the character's familial ties

Anna Kendrick for sure...

Anna would be amazing in the role but my top pick would be Alison Brie or Emma Watson.

Also depending on the age but Emily Blunt would be a top contendor.
