Hayley Atwell joins Captain America

The role turned down by Emily Blunt in Captain America will now go to darling Hayley Atwell.

Worst Previews says:

All the rumors turned out to be wrong, since Marvel Studios has just announced that Hayley Atwell (The Duchess, “The Prisoner”) has been cast as Peggy Carter. In the early comics, the character fell in love with Captain America while they fought together in the war effort.

Maybe when John Krasinski didn’t get the Cap role (thank Zod) Emily Blunt – John’s fiance – backed out on being Caps main girl. But we are hearing in the rumour mill that Emily passed on the role in favour of some mystery role that was better in something else (wild speculation says Catwoman in Batman3)

But Hayley Atwell should suit the role well as the film will take place in World War 2, and she is to play Peggy Carter, a woman who while aging tells stories of Cap’s heroics and their love affair in the war. Atwell plays period roles well, and would fit with that “proper” era and still have enough fireworks in her to be a bold supporter of the War Effort.

I wonder if they are going to follow the comics and have Peggy’s great niece Shannon in scenes where Peggy is much older. Shannon Carter eventually becomes The American Dream – a girl Captain America type hero inspired by his stories.
