'Captain America 2' (aka 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier') has been working hard to find the right actress to star as Agent 13/Sharon Carter in the upcoming superhero sequel. A number of names have been rumored for the part including Alison Brie, Imogen Poots and Teresa Palmer. But none of these actresses have tested for the part yet? And why not? Because another actress not on any of the previous lists may have already snagged the role.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
This is what happens any time you play a superhero in a major comic book franchise: No matter the movie that you are trying to promote, you’ll have to answer a handful of questions about the superhero blockbuster that you eventually are going to film (even though cameras don’t roll for months, at the earliest).
Take Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in Marvel’s string of popcorn thrillers. He’s trying to talk to the media about ‘The Iceman,’ a serial-killer-hitman drama that he and Michael Shannon brought to the Toronto International Film Festival. But instead, he has to spend time talking to outlets about his Marvel future. And Evans talks. To his credit, he knows where his bread is being buttered these days. Movies like ‘The Avengers’ and the upcoming 'Captain America 2' allow him to do as many ‘Iceman’ movies as he’ll want for the foreseeable future.
While the Toronto International Film Festival is still underway, everyone is anxious to see the first showing of films like 'Cloud Atlas' and 'Argo,' and get as much information on the stars' future projects. Though the actors and actresses only attended the festival to see the premieres and promote their current works, everyone wanted to grill them on their much-talked-about, upcoming films.
For Chris Evans, that meant getting as many details about 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Solider') from him as possible. Thankfully, this time around, 'The Avengers' star gave us some actual information we can work with.
'Captain America 2' - now officially subtitled 'Winter Soldier' - takes place in modern day, which means Cap's flame, Peggy Carter, won't be returning for the sequel. So Steve Rogers is gonna need a new woman in his life and Marvel has narrowed down their search to three actresses for the role.
