CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER Casts Its Female Lead

Emily VanCamp joins Captain America: The Winter Solider as the female lead, which is thought to be the role of Sharon Carter. Read on for more details. Was VanCamp your first choice for the coveted role?



Emily VanCamp will play the female lead in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Deadline reports that VanCamp and Marvel Studios are currently in negotiations to secure her in the role of what is believed to be Sharon Carter, who in the comic books is the niece of Peggy Carter, a character previously played in Captain America: The First Avenger by Hayley Atwell. It looks as if VanCamp beat out a LONG list of rumored candidates for the coveted role. True to form, Marvel Studios has selected a candidate previously not on the purported casting radar. More details as we have them. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is currently scheduled for release on April 4, 2014. Joe and Anthony Russo will direct a script from Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

Deadline also reaffirms earlier reports that Scarlett Johannson will return as the Black Widow.
