It’s Captain America “Frontrunner” Time Again, With Jessica Brown Findlay

The latest media outlet to have a stab at guessing who will play the new female lead in Captain America 2 is The Daily Express and they’re pinning their hopes on Jessica Brown Findlay, late of Downton Abbey. You may recall her as Rachel in Misfits, Abi in Black Mirror or Emelia, in the undervalued Albatross.

The report is not too dissimilar to one we’ve featured before but… the Daily Express aren’t just repacking old news, surely? Are they? Let’s assume they do have their own sources – surely the echo just reinforces the validity of the claims?

Brown Findlay is about to get rolling on Akiva Goldsman’s directorial debute, Winter’s Tale, if the reported production delays don’t derail the whole thing, and she’s been receiving heavy courtship from Hollywood in respect of numerous other projects.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see her take the Cap role, which we’re assuming to be Peggy… no… Sharon… Peggy… Sharon Carter. The younger one. She’s British, for one thing.

For all we know Marvel may have actually signed an actress for the part and are keeping schtum, but I somehow doubt it.

I also doubt we’ve heard the last claim of who is the “frontrunner” for the role.
