"Revenge" Star Joins "Captain America" Sequel

"Revenge" actress Emily VanCamp is in talks to play the female lead in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" at Marvel Studios and Disney Pictures.

No specific details have been given about her character, but there is plenty of speculation that she could play Sharon Carter.

In the comics, Sharon is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and the niece of Peggy Carter. Eventually, Sharon and Steve Rogers fall in love, though her work at S.H.I.E.L.D. strains their relationship.

Hayley Atwell played Peggy Carter in the first film "Captain America: The First Avenger". VanCamp joins a cast that includes returnees Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Cobie Smulders, Toby Jones, and potentially Scarlett Johansson. Other newcomers include Anthony Mackie as Falcon and Frank Grillo as Crossbones,

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo direct from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
