Emily VanCamp has joined the cast of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER as the female lead and most likely will be Sharon Carter. Hayley Atwell, who played the female lead and love interest for Steve Rogers/Cap/Chris Evans in the first film, was Peggy Carter, and sounded like she wouldn’t be in the film. Apparently Stanley Tucci knows otherwise:
“I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene…but I have not been asked.”
Hayley Atwell joins a cast that includes Chris Evans, Frank Grillo, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Toby Jones, Sebastian Stan, and Scarlett Johansson.
