According to Deadline, the casting process for Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in full swing, with screen tests for Steve Rogers’ love interest role now underway. And the list of actresses is interesting indeed.
Firstly, there’s Emilia Clarke, who most of us know as raging lunatic with badass dragons on her side in Game of Thrones. Then there’s Jessica Brown Findlay, who has eye-candy experience from Downton Abbey; Imogen Poots, who has already shown considerable versatility in Jane Eyre, 28 Weeks Later and V for Vendetta, and Teresa Palmer from I Am Number Four and the upcoming Warm Bodies, although I feel she’s an outsider for the role.
Finally, though, there’s the geektastic Alison Brie from Mad Men and -infinitely more importantly- Community. Marvel has shown a savvy for bringing TV stars into the Avengers universe before, by casting How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders in The Avengers, so the prospect of seeing Annie Edison capture the heart of Steve Rogers isn’t far-fetched at all.
