Five young actresses are all said to be testing to play Steve Rogers' new love interest in Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" reports Deadline.

Those who made the final round include Emelia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Jessica Brown Findlay ("Downton Abbey"), Teresa Palmer ("I Am Number Four"), Imogen Poots ("28 Weeks Later") and Alison Brie ("The Five Year Engagement")

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo will shortly pick which of the five they want for the part. It's presently unknown who the specific character is - whether it's from the comics or an original creation.

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow character will also reportedly pop up in the film. How significant a role she'll play is again unknown.

The news comes a few days after an apparent character outline list for the upcoming TV series based on Marvel's "S.H.I.E.L.D." property leaked online via TV Line.
