Will Captain America's Peggy Carter be played by Alice Eve or Hayley Atwell?

Apr. 8, 2010by:

The Battle of the Babes for the role of Captain America's girlfriend continues!

According to E!, it's boiling down to lovely Brit lasses Alice Eve (SEX IN THE CITY 2, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE) and Hayley Atwell (THE DUCHESS, CASSANDRA'S DREAM) to play Cap's main squeeze "Peggy Carter". Emily Blunt, as reported last week, has already dropped out, and E! is also saying that Keira Knightley is no longer in the running.

Both women are said to be screen-testing for a second time today while in London. Eve is apparently Marvel's current front-runner for the role.

So what do you guys think of either of these ladies? Chime in! Marvel is gauging fan reaction to reports like these to see what sticks and what doesn't. I personally don't think Atwell has a chance, honestly. I feel it's Eve's role to lose at this point - she's relatively inexpensive and she's culturally well-exposed to the right demographic at the moment with SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE as well as being on the cover of the current issue of Maxim (literally well-exposed in that case).

Extra Tidbit: Alice Eve and Ray Liotta bone in Wayne Kramer's 2009 film CROSSING OVER. Just putting that out there.

DON'T CARE ...

... it's obviously minor role for one movie only (assuming she'll be his girlfriend in 40-ties) so whatever. So glad Emily Blunt didn't take this role ...

Hayley Atwell

Something about Alice Eve doesn't sit well with me. I know she's attractive but... I dunno. She's always giving the stink eye. I just don't like her (though I haven't seen her in anything yet)

Hayley Atwell is a beautiful woman who I do find looks interesting (and Hot) She's my choice of the two.

But you're right. Even will get it because she's the current flavour.

Meh, let Alice have it.

With Emily Blunt and Keira Knightley both out of the picture, the role might as well be hers for the taking. I wouldn't mind her as Peggy and she's got the classic-type good looks for the part. And she's not at all a bad actress. Go ahead and let her have it.

On the contrary. Alice Eve is a pretty bad actress.

I realize "bad" is merely opinion -- and I honestly haven't seen the other chick in anything, so I can't be a good judge -- but Eve would really bring down the quality of acting. If she's trying to be American, we'll have to endure that god-awful, nasally twang she inserts to cover up her British accent.

I cringe. Maybe I'm overly analytical.

On looks, I think Eve's got the classic blonde, 40's female ideal build. But Atwell definitely has a classIER look. I'd prefer the latter by far, if she's not bad as well.

Pretty much a "meh" issue at this point

Both actress looks good but we haven't seen enough of either of them to be really excited.

It's beginning to look more and more like Marvel is making this movie because they have to, not because they want to...

Alice Eve is pretty and all, not as beautiful as She's Out of My League makes her out to be, but like others have said she can't act for shit.

Atwell was good enough in Woody Allen's worst movie in years, Cassandra's Dream, so between the two I'd take Atwell if they want blonde and chesty.

Hayley Atwell

She seems to have the experience in period films with The Duchess and is, I think, better looking than Alice Eve.

Alice Eve looks like the offspring of Alicia Silverstone and Chucky. I honestly don't care much though.
