26-year-old Emily VanCamp seems to be the leading candidate for the female lead in The Winter Soldier. While the source has learned of VanCamp's interest in the role, and the production seems to favor her the most over such other possible candidates as Mary Elizabeth Winstead (The Thing), Imogen Poots (Fright Night) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), there's still no other information about the character that VanCamp would be playing.
The most likely theory is that the actress will portray a descendant of Peggy Carter in the sequel, the British officer that Hayley Atwell portrayed in the first film, Captain America: The First Avenger. Whether the character will be the granddaughter, grandneice or some other family connection to Carter remains to be seen.- Deadline. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Frank Grillo may have started the rumor last week but this week it's confirmed by trade magazine Variety. Grillo has won the role of Crossbones, a.k.a. mercenary Brock Rumlow, in The Winter Soldier.
Rumlow had an important part to play in Ed Brubaker's "Death of Captain America" storyline for Marvel Comics. It's unclear how Crossbones will be featured in the storyline for The Winter Soldier movie or if additional elements from Brubaker's story arc will also feature in the film's plot.- Variety.

There are unconfirmed reports that Marvel has approached actress Anna Kendricks to play a major role in The Winter Soldier, possibly even a grand-daughter or niece of Peggy Carter. While at the Toronto International Film Festival, Kendricks was asked if there was any truth to the gossip.
"Oh, right. Damn it," she said to reporters, playing verbal dodgeball. "No. I'm going to say I don't know what you're talking about."
Either she knows damn well what those reporters are talking about, and has been told to keep quiet until the greenlight is given, or she's playing into the hype to get some more attention from the press. For the present time, either explanation is equally as valid.- MTV. Comment on this Scoop (0)
