Captain America: The Winter Soldier auditioning love interests

And Scarlett's Johansson's Black Widow will appear

Having been cast adrift in the future, separated by many years from his forces sweetheart Peggy Carter, life is lonely for poor old Captain America, Steve Rogers. Fortunately for him however, there’s a new love interest on the cards.

According to Deadline, Marvel are set to add a new female lead to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, somebody Rodgers can bond with in his new contemporary setting.

The studio has apparently assembled a shortlist of top female talent, with Imogen Poots, Teresa Palmer, Emilia Clarke, Alison Brie and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay set to battle it out for the part.

Meanwhile, as an added bonus, Deadline also reports that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will be making a cameo appearance. How exactly her character will fit in remains to be seen, but it’s welcome news nonetheless.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo and starring Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will open in the UK on 4 April 2014.

      Since it's being directed by the guys from Community I think there's a good chance Alison Brie will land the gig, and there's nothing wrong with that because Alison is a cutie pie. I wouldn't mind Emelia Clarke landing a big movie but I don't want it to mess with Game Of Thrones schedule.

      I agree with @aherakat on Anne Hathaway. She's proven herself to be a very talented actor and I can see her being great in this role. We'll have to wait and see...

      Amen to that @Collinh. Anna Kendrick needs to star in a superhero film! The first Captain America was a let down and number 2 has potential so hopefully they won’t screw it up this time around. TDKR came out too close to Cap America 2 therefore it will be hard for people to adapt so fast. I mean playing 2 different superhero love interests in the space of 2 years is a bit much.

      Anna Kendrick seems to prefer small indie roles and the odd cameo in Twilight. Anne Hathaway has just got married so I don't really think movies are on her mind at the moment.

      Forget the love interest - how about not making this as boring as cabbage.

      It's all very well putting forward suggestions, but who is the character going to be. My bet is that it will be the grand-daughter of Peggy Carter (think that was her name) from the first film and if i remember the comics right that would be Sharon Carter who is an agent of shield.

      Um, if we're going down the Sharon Carter route (which does seem likely) why not bring back Hayley Atwell as a blonde - I've always understood that Sharon was a dead ringer for Peggy in the books...Just a thought.
