Hayley Atwell is reportedly in the running to star in upcoming Marvel blockbuster The First Avenger: Captain America.
The Brideshead Revisited star has been screen testing for the part of Peggy Carter, the love interest of Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, according to E! Online.
But Hayley faces tough competition from fellow young British actress Alice Eve, who starred in Starter For 10 and is soon to appear in Sex And The City 2 as Charlotte's nanny.
Fantastic Four's Chris Evans has signed up as the eponymous hero in The First Avenger: Captain America, and The Wolfman's Joe Johnston is directing.
It has just been announced that Gossip Girl actor Sebastian Stan has landed the role of Captain America's sidekick James "Bucky" Barnes.
The First Avenger: Captain America is due out in cinemas in July 2011.
