Revenge star Emily VanCamp has landed her first feature film role and it’s a big one. Deadline reports the actress will play the female lead in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the sequel to the 2011 blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger.

    I’m excited that VanCamp will be starring in the Captain America sequel. I enjoyed the first movie, and I love Vancamp’s show Revenge. I watch it every week. I have a hard time watching it live because I work late at DISH when it airs on Sundays, but I see it on my DVR. My DISH Hopper is even set to auto-record Revenge and the other primetime shows on the four major networks using PrimeTime Anytime, so I never have to worry about missing an episode even if I forget to set a timer. And since I like Revenge so much I’ll definitely have to see how VanCamp does in the new Captain America sequel.
