Scarlett Johansson will be reprising her role as Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and five other actresses are being screen tested to possibly play a love interest for Captain America in the sequel which is part of Phase Two of the Marvel cinematic universe.

Marvel Studios is kicking Captain America‘s sequel into high gear by testing some of Hollywood’s hottest young women to star in its next film. Scarlett Johansson will also be strapping on her leather boots once again to join this ensemble cast. Since Johansson won’t be showing up in Iron Man 3, she may end up playing a more important role in The Winter Soldier.

If you’ve seen The Avengers alternate opening sequence, you’ll know that Cap nearly calls his old fling Peggy from the first Captain America film. Considering The Avengers took place during 2012 and Captain America: The First Avenger took place during the early 1940s, Peggy would at least be in her late 80s – if not older. We don’t know that they’ll resolve this story line before moving forward, but considering Peggy wouldn’t be able to tag along on any of Cap’s missions, we can’t imagine she’ll be in the film – unless of course they go with flashbacks, which they did favor in the first film. This is somewhat disappointing, since fans greatly enjoyed actress Hayley Atwell as Peggy in the first film.

She’s gone on to say that, “I haven’t heard anything. There have been talks… there’s a possibility. I know they’re either writing it now or they have written it by now, so I’ve moved on in another direction.” It seems as though the writers may have found it too difficult to work her back into the story and decided to move on to a new love interest for Cap.

The new character itself remains under lock and key, but it will most likely be the new love interest for Steve Rodgers and could be the comic book character Sharon Carter. Sharon Carter is an ex-field agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., who was working with Nick Fury and could often be seen as Captain America’s girlfriend.

Deadline reports that the five actresses who are being tested are Emilia Clark (Game of Thrones), Jessica Brown Findlay (Downtown Abbey), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Imogen Poots (Knight of Cups), and Alison Brie (Community). Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s release date is set for April 4, 2014.

We imagine Chris Evans would be happy with any of the five actresses that are being tested, but who would you prefer to see Captain America getting cozy with in The Winter Soldier?

  • isenhobbitz

    I feel like Alison Brie is more famous for Community or even Mad Men than for the Five Year Engagement.

    I’d pick Imogen or Alison. I still hope that Cap gets to meet a much much older Peggy Carter!! I love Hayley Atwell!

    wow those are 5 great gals to choose from… the only reason i voted for imogen poots was because she’s unknown to me and i’d think they might go for a relative unknown so as not to steal the spot light? but i dont really know how those kinda of decisions are made. any of these ladies would more than certainly knock it out of the park.

    It would be awesome if they got teresa palmer or Emilia Clark to play the part!!

  • Gary65

    Emilia Clarke without a shadow of a doubt. I have been dying to see what she can do outside GoT

    Well, I can definitely see the demographic they are going for…

    I can’t decide!!!! As long as it’s Emilia Clark, Teresa Palmer or Alison Brie I would be happy :D

  • M

    I love Teresa Palmer, but Jessica Brown Findlay would also be amazing!

    I have to say that I don’t feel that the photo picked for Jessica Brown Findlay really represents her at all. I’m an avid Downton fan, and I would not have recognized her from that photograph. Can I perhaps suggest this alternative: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbcftlUrxQ1r6uup8o1_r1_400.png

    That’s the most unattractive picture I’ve ever seen of Jessica Brown-Findlay. That’s depressing; she’s really gorgeous with such a smoky voice.

    Definately Emilia Clark!! There is no question! Especially if the character is SHARON Carter.
