Emily VanCamp has had a successful run on ABC’s Revenge for the past four years, but with the recent conclusion of the show comes new opportunities for the actress, and one of them is on the silver screen.
VanCamp will reportedly return to the Marvel universe as Agent 13 in Captain America: Civil War, reprising the role she briefly inhabited in Winter Soldier. In the comic books, Agent 13 is the niece of Peggy Carter–Cap’s WWII-era love interest–and presumably the films will follow that storyline.
Back in January, the directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, said that there will be some familiar faces in the new film, including Rrobert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson.
‘We’ve been preparing for the movie since the one debuted last year. So, we’ve been working on it for a long time now,” they said.”We’re very happy how it’s coming along… It’s going to star Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson will be back, Winter Soldier [Stan] will be back, and Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man will also be joining us in the next film.”
Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, said in a recent interview that he believes his character wants to find love again, but that it’s so hard for him to do something in his own interest when so many people need him.
“Family is certainly what he wants, but Cap puts what he wants last. That’s his M.O. And I think for so long he just refuses to bleed on people. So it’s hard to explore a guy who doesn’t want to make waves with his own personal conflict. He’s always trying to help the greater good,” Evans said.
Emily VanCamp took to Twitter last month to thank fans of Revenge for making it such a success, noting that she was overwhelmed with their response when news broke that the show was in its last season.
“I am utterly overwhelmed with all of the Revenge love I’m reading. Thank you! Its been one hell of a ride!” she wrote.
Captain America: Civil War is due out in May of next year.
