REVENGE star Emily VanCamp has joined Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the female lead.

The actress will line up alongside Chris Evans, who reprises his role from 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and last year’s Marvel Avengers Assemble.

Anthony Mackie is set to play Falcon in the sequel, which is being directed by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo.

As yet, plot details are being kept firmly under wraps but the title of the film could allude to a respected comic book storyline from the 2000s that saw Captain America’s sidekick Bucky resurrected as a brainwashed super-assassin known as the Winter Solider.

The film is set for a US release by Disney on April 4, 2014.
