Emily Vancamp Cast As Female Lead In CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, Who Is She Playing?
Deadline reports that newcomer Emily Vancamp (Revenge) has landed the female lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Her character isn't being revealed at this time but I'm sure Marvel will include that information when they officially announce her casting. She joins new additions Anthony Mackie/The Falcon and Frank Grillo as villain Crossbones. The rest of the cast includes Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smudlers and Toby Jones.
It's very likely that she'll be playing Sharon Carter (Agent 13) since the character has been rumored for ages. Along with the fact she could be a link to Rogers reuniting with Peggy. However, it's also possible that they could be saving Sharon for a third film. Rachel Leighton (Diamondback) is another love interest and fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. member which could easily be Emily's role as well.
