Emily VanCamp 'Captain America' Role in the Works

Emily VanCamp has transitioned from TV's "Revenge" to the big screen with a huge new role, according to reports on Monday.

The star of ABC's hit television series has been named as the female lead in the upcoming "Captain America" sequel, according to Vulture.

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" will see VanCamp as Sharon Carter, and while the role is not yet confirmed; the character is believed to be the love interest of Captain America.

If VanCamp does sign on to the film, the long search will be over. Last year, actresses Emelia Clarke, Jessican Brown Findlay, Alison Brie, and Imogen Poots were considered for the role, among others, according to Deadline.com.

"Winter Soldier" will also see Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans reprise their "Captain America: The First Avenger" roles as Nicky Fury, Black Widow, and Captain America/Steve Rogers, respectively. The sequel will also star "How I Met Your Mother" actress Cobie Smulders.

The Russo brothers Anthony and Joe will direct the film, which is scheduled for release on April 4, 2014 according to Comingsoon.net.

VanCamp stars on "Revenge" as a wealthy socialite in the Hamptons with a dual identity, Emily Thorne and Amanda Clarke. Other stars on the show include Madeleine Stowe, Gabriel Mann, and Henry Czerny, among others.

The star of the popular television series is also well known for her role on the WB's "Everwood" as Rebecca Harper and for the show "Brothers & Sisters."

VanCamp has also appeared in television series such as "Are You Afraid of the Dark," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and "Glory Days," among others.
