Emily VanCamp joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe...
Captain America: The Winter Soldier has its female lead. Deadline reports that Emily VanCamp, who plays Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke on ABC's Revenge, has joined the cast of the Marvel Studios film. VanCamp was not among the short list of actresses revealed last fall.
The identity of the character is not confirmed, though she is a romantic interest to Steve Rogers which to anyone familiar with the comics suggests Sharon Carter, the niece of Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger. Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson and Toby Jones are also set for the film, which opens on April 4th, 2014.
