Keira Knightly has some competition!

UK, March 16, 2010 - There's so much casting news for The First Avenger: Captain America (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/034/034020.html) flying around at the moment that even IGN is finding it hard to keep track.

Only yesterday, we heard that Channing Tatum (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/917/917781.html) and Ryan Phillippe (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/917/917743.html) were being screen tested for the title role (http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/107/1077596p1.html), and that Keira Knightley (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/911/911621.html) was being considered (http://uk.movies.ign.com/articles/107/1077812p1.html) for his love interest Elizabeth "Betsy" Ross.

It seems however that Knightley will face stiff competition for the part, with Deadline New York (http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/marvel-calling-tatum-for-captain-america/)reporting that Emily Blunt (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/917/917595.html) and Alice Eve are also both in the running (although they are calling the character 'Peggy').

Blunt - who almost nabbed the role of Black Window on Iron Man 2 (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/142/14251831.html) - appeared in The Wolfman (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/817/817574.html) which was directed by Captain America director Joe Johnston (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/915/915485.html). Weirdly, she is also the fiancee of John Krasinski (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/910/910738.html) who tested for the title role. The mind boggles.

Eve meanwhile doesn't have as many Cappy connections, but is currently on our cinema screens as the lead in She's Out of My League (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/055/055787.html).

Right, that's all the Captain America gossip for today, see you all same time tomorrow.

EMILY BLUNT PLEASE!!
