According to E! Online the casting of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER’s female lead has been narrowed down today. English actresses Alice Eve (STARTER FOR 10, SEX AND THE CITY 2) and Hayley Atwell (THE DUCHESS, LOVE HATE) have both been called back for second test screenings.
The part is for Peggy Carter whom is basically Captain America’s love interest in the comics. Casting news for the feisty heroine has been rife lately; even Keira Knightley was mooted as a possible actress. Now it seems like it’s down to either Eve or Atwell, with a result likely next week. Which actress would you prefer to get the part?
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER is due for release on the 22nd of July, 2011.
