Movies.com had the fandom weigh in on another Hunger Games Countdown topic. This time, on who the mystery character is on the ‘Catching Fire Casting‘ site! Here is an excerpt of what the fan sites had to say:

I’d like to think that the mystery person is Alma Coin. While we don’t meet her until Mockingjay, it would make for an interesting cliffhanger to see the woman that is essentially the lynch pin to the future of Panem make an appearance. The film could end with Coin playing a crucial role in the rescue of Katniss from the Arena. As those that have read Mockingjay know, Coin presents an ever-present danger to Katniss. She is more than willing to let Katniss die once she’s fulfilled her duties as the mockingjay. An actress that could capture the very ruthlessness and duplicity of Coin would be someone like Sigourney Weaver. She manages to play women with great presence and tenacity.

There has been a lot of frenzied talk among fans and fan sites about who this mystery character might be, but I hadn’t devoted a whole lot of time to it myself. As casting news has trickled out, I have just been enjoying the excitement of putting actors with characters we know will be making an appearance in Catching Fire. However, after giving it some thought, I wonder if we might get an appearance at the end of the film from Coin. Introducing the leader of District 13 would be an excellent way to point the way to the third film in the series, Mockingjay, Part 1. As for casting, I can’t help but think of Joan Allen for the role. She certainly has the capability of showing strength, leadership and control (consider the Bourne franchise). She’s a spectacular actor who could bring even more class to a star-studded cast.

From what I’ve seen online, everyone seems to think the Mystery Woman is either Annie Cresta, Madge Undersee, or Alma Coin. And these are all great guesses, as I think each of these characters would elicit an excited response from fans. Imagine how cool it would be for Catching Fire to end with a quick glimpse of Coin looking all authoritative in her District 13 bunker! I’d also love to see Madge re-incorporated into the pin storyline (and I do think it’s possible). All that being said, however, my money’s on Annie. Annie is a pretty important figure in Mockingjay, so it would make sense for them to go ahead and introduce her in Catching Fire, even though we only get a brief glimpse of her in the book.
