Emily VanCamp has nabbed the female lead in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The star of ABC's Revenge will join Chris Evans, who reprises his title role from 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and last year's blockbuster The Avengers. Anthony Mackie is set to play Falcon. Brothers Joe and Anthony Russo are directing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the subtitle suggests a respected comic book storyline from the 2000s that resurrected Captain America's sidekick Bucky as a brainwashed super-assassin known as the Winter Solider.

The Captain America sequel is set for release by Disney on April 4, 2014.
