'Captain America 2' Will Have Black Widow, Could Have Alison Brie or Imogen Poots or Someone

This movie is going to birth so many animated gifs.

The coveted, generic role of Chris Evans' Captain America: The Winter Soldier "love interest" is down to five hypothetical objects of the Captain's affection. According to Deadline, the actresses up for the part are Game of Thrones' Emilia Clark, Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay, I Am Number Four's Teresa Palmer, Fright Night's Imogen Poots, and Community and Mad Men star Allison Brie. Brie would seem to have a slight advantage in the running, seeing as how Captain America 2 directors Joe and Anthony Russo executive produce and often direct episodes of Community, but then again, it seems like Poots' somehow-real name comes up pretty much every time a non-specific love interest is needed, so by the numbers, maybe she has an edge. All the actresses are said to be testing for the part, so in the end, it's all going to come down to who is most lovable, and who should be alone forever.

Deadline also adds that Scarlett Johansson--indentured to Marvel to squeeze into leather for as many as nine films--will once again show up to perform some her unique, crawl-around-on-the-floor-style spy-craft. That should be fun.
