As Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson is as front and center in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" as any character not named "Captain America" or "The Winter Soldier" can be. But she's not the only supporting player in Steve Rogers' orbit: there's also Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter to consider.
For VanCamp, playing Carter, a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and descendant of Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter, was no easy feat — but still a ton of fun.
"One of the most interesting things was actually learning about it, to really start to understand just how grand this universe is," she said in a new interview with Fandango. "Researching my character, I started to get interested in a lot of other things that I was reading. It was just a really fun process."

Marvel's Hall H presentation at San Diego's Comic-Con International definitely brought the house down, what with all of the announcements and footage and Marvel movie cast members in attendance. "Entertainment Tonight" got the chance to speak with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" cast members Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, and Frank Grillo just before they experienced the insanity of Hall H, many for the first time.
"That's the one thing you like about going into Hall H," said Hall H veteran Samuel L. Jackson. "They're already there, they want it. They're breathing hard before we get in there, and then the fact that we show up is like full lung craziness. It is so awesome. It's like being a Beatle."
The rest of the video, which can be seen after the jump, goes into detail about each actor's experience working on the film, including a few "how I got the job" stories.

So the word's out: the film formerly known as "Avengers 2" is now "Avengers: Age of Ultron." And with that info now public, a few of the major players behind "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" have decided to open up just a teeny bit about how the upcoming Cap sequel bridges the gap between "Marvel's the Avengers" and "Age of Ultron."
"I think, and [Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] has said this, it's as big of a bridge of any of the Phase 2 movies from 'Avengers' to 'Avengers 2,'" "Winter Soldier" director Joe Russo told Slash Film. "There's a significant shift in the universe at the end of this movie. Like all of the Marvel movies it has elements of all of the other films, this one I think has probably the strongest bond between those goals."
At long last, Marvel has found its new leading lady for the "Captain America" franchise — and she's hell-bent on getting "Revenge."
According to Deadline, "Revenge" actress Emily VanCamp has landed the coveted female lead in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the April 2014 blockbuster starring Chris Evans as the star-spangled super-soldier. The exact identity of the character remains under wraps, though popular opinion pegs it as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, relative of Cap's first lady love, Peggy.
