Chris Evans, you lucky bastard. The shortlist for his love interest in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" has dropped and it's basically a list of actresses who have been the subjects of our ever unsent mash notes.

Deadline reports that "Game Of Thrones" stars Emilia Clarke (you might know her as Daenerys Targaryen), Jessica Brown-Findlay of "Downton Abbey" fame, rising thesps Teresa Palmer and Imogen Poots, as well as Alison Brie of the acclaimed shows "Mad Men" and "Community" are all in the running to hang off Steve Rogers' arm. But wait—there's more. Now that Captain America has been unfrozen in contemporary times, that means he can run into any of The Avengers, and Scarlett Johansson is "in the mix" to roll with our hero in some capacity in the sequel. And considering she isn't popping up in "Iron Man 3," the move makes sense, and perhaps indicates some interesting changes for the character.

Anyone you prefer to win the role opposite Evans? Frankly, we like all the choices so whoever gets it, that's just fine by us.
