So who's up for the role of Steve Rogers' new sweetie?
Anna Kendrick, Imogen Poots and Felicity Jones are rumored to be the frontrunners for the female lead in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," according to The New York Post.
The details of the role are being kept under wraps, but fans are speculating that it will be Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell in "Captain America: The First Avenger." We have a feeling that if Marvel is indeed going with Sharon, she'll be adjusted to be Peggy's grand-niece (think about it; it makes more sense) as well as the agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. that she is in the "Ultimate" comic book series.
We love Anna Kendrick and all (can't wait for "Pitch Perfect," opening Oct. 5), and Imogen Poots certainly proved she has some fightin' spirit with her performance in last summer's "Fright Night," but we kind of hope the part goes to Felicity Jones (if indeed it's down to these three ladies). We think she'd do quite well in the Marvel universe ... and would look the most at home sharing a frame with Chris Evans (even if Kendrick could probably pass the most for a relative of Atwell's).
Felicity Jones also recently lost the part of Mrs. "Jack Ryan" to Keira Knightley, so, you know, Hollywood owes her a franchise!
But that's just us. Who do you think should be the Captain's new ladyfriend? Let us know via the poll below.
"Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which will feature Anthony Mackie as Falcon (awesome), will hit theaters on April 4, 2014.
