Big news today, gang—the actress who will likely portray the obligatory love interest/ thankless girlfriend role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier has been revealed!  Here’s hoping there are a lot of Revenge fans out there.

Interestingly, the actress selected was not one of the women on Deadline’s leaked shortlist of candidates (Jessica Brown Findlay, Emilia Clarke, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, and Alison Brie); rather, Marvel Studios has gone with Emily VanCamp (Revenge, Everwood, Brothers and Sisters).

VanCamp’s role is unclear beyond the fact that she will portray the female lead, but Coming Soon notes that the rumor amongst comic book  fans is that the actress will be playing Sharon Carter, the sister or niece (depends on which comic you read) of Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest in the first film, portrayed by Haley Atwell.  But, again, this is strictly rumor.

Marvel Studios is currently in talks VanCamp and, barring any unexpected roadblocks, the actress will be set to share the big screen with Chris Evans when the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed Captain America: The Winter Solider hits the big screen on April 4, 2014.

What do you think of the Captain America: Winter Soldier casting news?
