Deadline has the exclusive report naming Revenge‘s Emily VanCamp as the female lead joining Chris Evans for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We don’t know for sure who’ll she be playing but there’s a very good chance it’s Sharon Carter, niece of Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell in The First Avenger), and of course, new love interest for Cap. Which to me is weird, but I bet it’s a tough dating scene for someone once frozen and misplaced in time.
This news also comes with revelation that Evans has yet to receive his script for The Winter Soldier. Say what? The film is supposed to release on April 4th, 2014, so the news Evans hasn’t seen a finished script is surprising. He revealed this on the latest Doug Loves Movies podcast,
I don’t have a script yet. We start shooting in two months and they haven’t given me a script. That’s how Marvel works. Different directors, it’s the Russo brothers. It makes perfect sense, Community, S.H.I.E.L.D. superhero action movie [Ed Note: Evans is joking here]
Shooting on The Winter Soldier is also reportedly pushed back until June, which could be why Evans doesn’t have a script yet. And hell, they only just cast VanCamp. What d’ya think, will this effect the 2014 release date?
