    Who do you think the love interest of Captain American should/will be?

    Sharon Carter as in the 616 universe

    Janet van Dyne (Wasp) like in some of the Ultimate Universe

    or who?

    Defenitely Sharon Carter. Abbie Cornish is who I want for the role.

    The character journey I want for Cap in part 2 is for him to let go of the past. I want him to have a hard time letting go of his former love, former team mates, former society that he lost.

    By the end of the movie, it would be great to see him have a new found love and appreciation for his new romantic partner, new teammates (SHIELD) and the 21st century American society.

    Other. The Sharon/Cap dynamic has always held an underlying creepiness for me.

    And honestly, I'd be completely okay with no love interest. Just give me a spy-type thriller movie where Cap, Hawkeye, and Widow go around kick ass and taking names.

    No to Cap and Janet/Wasp, blergh.

    Just FYI, in Ultimate Avengers Cap is paired up with Black Widow.

    Other as in NO love interest. Cap's always operated better as a sad bastard. Peggy simply cannot be topped, either. Is not possible.

    Mr. Immortal, Cap can't stay a virgin for another movie man. He's a 90 year old virgin now.

    what a waste of potential. Abbie has to get a MCU super hero role herself.

    Sharon Carter should be the love interest, clearly, but I don't think it is necessary for it to be immediate. Love interest's are slightly overrated, imho, and since 70 years probably still seems like yesterday for Cap, no reason to try and start Steve on the path to getting over Peggy yet. I don't think he should even know Sharon Carter is related to Peggy for a while either.

    A smart little quip like 'you remind me of someone I used to know' would suffice if they interact, but yeah, no need to go into a full-tilt romance right out of the gate. Also, I'm convinced Amanda Righetti was Sharon Carter. She is smoking and underrated imho, so I hope she gets a chance to come back and bring Sharon Carter to life.

    I think he should have a sort of Love Triangle. Not so there is the drama of juggling two girls or one finding out or something. Not that type of triangle. It should be Agent Sharon Carter of SHIELD and Bernie Rosenthal, an stained glass artist and glass blower.
    The idea would be that he is drawn to both women, one represents his life as Captain America and the other represents his life as Steve Rogers. Which should he choose?
    It would help symbolize the choice Steve feels like he has to make, being Steve or being Captain America.

    Thats what I would make the movie about too.
    It would take place in modern day and show how Steve is struggling with his new life. Should he give up being Steve since everyone he knew is dead or dying? Should he just be Captain America? Or should he try being Steve? Being an artist like he was before the serum and WWII? Should he try to have a normal life apart from Captain America?

    Sharon Carter is who it should be. Really no other logical person, except if you maybe want to go down the Diamondback route, which I doubt they will.

    That is indeed an interesting idea.

    I've never thought of Bernie being in a Captain America movie until you pitched that.

    I could see Jasika Nicole as Bernie and if that woman at the end of CA isn't Sharon then Jessica Marias as her.

    Thanks. So glad you guys like the idea. To flesh it out a little further, and to further make the choice hard I would also include in the cast his friends from the apartment when he was dating Bernie Rosenthal, Josh Cooper, Mike Farrell, and Anna Kapplehaum as part of his civilian life as Steve Rogers. And I would include Sharon Carter and Agent Samuel Wilson. Give him a good supporting cast of friends in both lives.
    And I wouldn't have Steve actually dating both, I don't see him doing that. He would hold off until he made a choice and then date one of them.
    Maybe include a cameo by RDJ as Tony Stark who could joke about how Cap could date them both, to Cap's shock. Or maybe include Hawkeye in the film as a SHIELD agent Cap is friends with from the Avengers, maybe.

    And then there would be the major story arc of the villain taking over New York or whatever. Baron Zemo or something.

    His love interest will be Ashley Johnson, she's seen in the opening of the alien attack and he rescues her, she tells the reporter at the end of the movie that he saved her.

    Didn't think about that, but now that you mention it, I wonder if Marvel has plans for her. Seemed to be a fairly "important" role for just a waitress who gets saved by Cap....(incidentally, there seems to be a deleted scene or two here --- I think there may have been a bigger sequence between her and Cap that was left on the cutting room floor).

    Yes, I was to mention her. Though I didn't see it at the first time, it really stand out from the last part of the movie. I thought she was cute, and I bought every bit of her speech.

    I say make it Maria Hill, there is no real reason it HAS to be Sharon Carter.

    Other than for the Peggy connection. Back in comic book days, it was only 20 years since the end of WWII instead of 70, so Peggy still featured very much as a character and even a love interest for 1960s Cap....albeit a May-December romance. Steve actually had to hide his relationship with Sharon from Peggy --- pretty sure he was bangin' Auntie *and* her niece.

    Of course, with 70 years separating them now, that's too wide a gulf for Peggy to even be considered anymore. Still, there's some sort of psychological attachment Steve has to her through the (grand-)niece, so there's that aspect of it.

    But since other people have already mentioned that Steve hooks up with Black Widow in Ultimates, and MCU shows a lotta love for Ultimates, I wouldn't be surprised to see that relationship develop in the future. Especially if it turns out that Scarjo will show up in CA2. And it'd create a triangle between her, Cap and Hawkeye, that could add a lot of drama.

    Whedon spoke alot about how he wanted to get an ordinary perspective on the heroes so even though the waitress figured in the story, I don't think she's any more significant than that overweight cop who asks Captain America why he should follow his orders.

    No thank you. I don't really like the idea of making every female character a love interest. Keep Maria strong and independent. Plus, the source material is too good to pass up as is the character of Sharon.

    I haven't been able to confirm/deny with the viewings I've had of Avengers so far, but some people on the Interwebz claim that the waitress' nametag says "Beth." I've scoured the Marvel databases for anyone that might resemble, and the closest I can come up with is Tony Stark's Bethany Cabe, who bears no resemblance in look or story to The Waitress.

    So yeah, I don't think she's an important character after all. But I *do* think she had a slightly bigger role in the Avengers that's been left on the cutting room floor. Maybe deleted scenes will show more.

    I say Carol Danvers (as SWORD or SHIELD agent). Have her take on a sort of Sharon Carter like role in this film while setting her up as becoming Ms. Marvel for TA2 (maybe CA2 has some cosmic/alien elements and she gets caught in an explosion?....end credits scene could be her waking up from a coma, eyes glowing or something like that)
