CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Although she doesn’t yet have her own film, it looks like Black Widow will show up in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. Scarlett Johansson’s character is an understandable addition to the cast, considering the Widow’s relationship with the Winter Soldier in the comics.
Further, Marvel is currently moving forward to find Steve Rogers’ love interest for the film. The list includes Emelia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Jessica Brown Findlay, (“Downton Abbey”), Imogen Poots (“Fright Night”) and Alison Brie (“Community”). While all the actresses under consideration have an impressive background, Brie has worked with directors Joe and Anthony Russo before on “Community.”
Noticeably absent from this list are Anna Kendrick and Felicity Jones, who were both reportedly under consideration for the role as recently as August.
