Which Actresses Are On The Casting Shortlist For Nick Fury's Sidekick In The Avengers?

Picture post time. Here are a series of actresses, each of them scheduled to give a screen test this Friday. The role they’ll be trying out for is Nick Fury’s “sidekick” in The Avengers. We’ve already been trying to work out if this means Carol Danvers, Maria Hill or Sharon Carter will be in the movie. Does the look of these ladies provide any more clues?

Morena Baccarin

Jessica Lucas

Cobie Smulders

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

The Hollywood Reporter presented this shortlist, and commented on how Baccarin might be considered a front runner due to her standing relationship with Avengers director Joss Whedon. Okay, perhaps, but it’s a good set, and I think all four are a welcome whenever I see them pop up onscreen.
