While it has been confirmed recently that Anthony Mackie will be joining the cast of the Captain America sequel, titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there is still no confirmation on who the female lead will be. It has also yet to be confirmed who the female character will be.
However, the rumours have started to spread about who the character will be with a number of names being mentioned for the female lead role. Among these names three seem to be regularly appearing and they are Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones and Anna Kendrick, with many expecting Kendrick to get the part.
As for who the successful actress will be playing, Bleeding Cool seem convinced that it will be Sharon Carter, the neice of Peggy, as she appears in The Winter Soldier stories.
