According to recent reports, one of the actresses included in the previous shortlist for Captain America: The Winter Soldier's female lead has now surfaced as the “front-runner.”
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?
