EVC was on none of those lists.

Admittedly, two said they couldn't comment.
It's all a bit peculiar, but if you ask me? I find it hard to believe that Marvel was doing an exhaustive, months-long search for Sharon Carter -which isn't really a huge character in the Marvel universe and really, there's a lot of actresses who could play her- and cast her quite late in pre-production, only to mention her on the press-release as an afterthought.
Or maybe all those rumored actresses were bunk. Someone's sources were just very misinformed. And a couple of months before shooting, they cast an actress to play a bit part.
