I really like how Marvel's going big time for the female audience. Hit up the female star of one of the most zeitgeistiest TV shows of recent. (And, as someone pointed out earlier, on the same network as their upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. series).
Well they seem to have cast in house since ABC is owned by Disney. I'm sure that's how they'll manage to allow Emily to be on both Revenge and Cap 2, and even possibly guest appearances in SHIELD. Maybe someone from ABC suggested her when they couldn't find a suitable actress for the movie. She didn't seem to be on their radar at all before.
