It’s lonely in the future for Captain America, aka Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), so Marvel has reportedly added a new love interest for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Details are scarce as to the actual character and whether or not she’ll appear in future Marvel movies, as the studio has a habit of signing talent to multi-picture deals. What is known is that the role is hotly contested, with some of today’s top female talent vying for it. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Alison Brie (Community) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) are in the mix. Hit the jump to see who else is competing for Rogers’ affections and to see what Marvel character might make a cameo appearance in the Cap sequel.

emilia-clarke-captain-america-the-winter-soldierDeadline reports that Marvel has added a contemporary love interest for the time-jumping Steve Rogers. In addition to Clarke, Brie and Brown, they report that Imogen Poots (Fright Night) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) are also in contention. As an added bonus, it looks like the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) will be making a cameo appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. (Variety’s Jeff Sneider confirms it.) No word yet on how her character fits into the plot or if she’ll be a post-credits appearance only. The other confirmed new character is The Falcon, to be played by Anthony Mackie (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

As a bonus, I’ve pain-stakingly put together a few images of the lovely actresses vying for the role (the things I do for you people). Tell us who you think should win in the comments below (my vote is for Brie. If she channels her Mad Men character, it might remind Rogers of the good ole days). Let’s hear it for the ladies!
