Marvel lovers: meet your newest addition to the Captain American 2: The Winter Soldier team! From a double-crossing Hamptonite to a big-screen leading lady, actress Emily VanCamp is definitely one to watch.
According to Deadline, VanCamp — star of ABC’s hit drama Revenge — is in talks with the Marvel Studios to join the newest superhero sequel. Once the deal has closed, VanCamp will star opposite super-hunk Chris Evans. The buzz around the blogosphere is that the Revenge actress is set to join the blockbuster as Sharon Carter, a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and potential love interest for Captain America (Evans). Carter is the niece of the original film’s Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).
Although many of the movie’s details are being kept hush-hush, it appears that unlike the first flick, which took place during World War II, the sequel will be set in the modern world. Captain America 2 does not have a set start date just yet, but the film is scheduled to hit theaters April 14, 2014.
