The Kidd here...
Sadly it looks like Anna Kendrick is out of the running for the female role in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, widely believed to be Sharon Carter. When I asked her about her possible involvement a few weeks ago, she told me she couldn't talk about it. But, according to Deadline, Marvel Studios has already moved onto testing a handful of actresses for the secretive role, and Anna Kendrick, the early frontrunner, for now isn't even on the short list.
Emilia Clarke (HBO's GAME OF THRONES), Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Jessica Brown Findlay (DOWNTON ABBEY) and Alison Brie (COMMUNITY and MAD MEN) are in the running, with no real indication as to which way directors Joe and Anthony Russo are leaning.
I'm still holding out hope that Anna Kendrick is in the mix and just hasn't been brought in yet, but, if indeed she is firmly out, Clarke and Palmer would be the two candidates I'd like to see get the most attention here. Hell, anything that gives us more Khaleesi is a good thing.
Who are you feeling right now if indeed this is Peggy Carter being cast?
