Weekend Hollywood scuttlebutt has three actresses vying to play Captain America’s leading lady when the Star Spangled Avenger returns to the big screen in 2014 with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. Up for the cushy role are young actresses Anna Kendrick, Imogen Poots, and Felicity Jones.
Of the three (pictured below, in order from left to right) Anna Kendrick (“The Twilight Saga” movies) is the lone American up against two Brits in Imogen Poots and Felicity Jones. Poots was recently in the “Fright Night” remake, while Jones (“Like Crazy”) recently lost out on being Jack Ryan’s babe in the upcoming reboot to fellow Brit Keira Knightley.
There’s no word on what role the actresses are vying for, just that it’s the sequel’s female lead. So what does the fact that they’re casting so young mean? Which character from the good Captain’s comic book universe would fit in with the early to mid ’20s age they’re looking at here?
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” will be directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, with Chris Evans back as Steve Rogers aka the Captain, along with Bucky, Sebastian Stan, who is expected to take the villain role this time around. The film recently added Anthony Mackie to the cast as Captain America’s new sidekick, The Falcon.
