Hayley AtwellMeet 'Captain America''s sweetheart.

According to Heat Vision, British actress Hayley Atwell has been cast as the female lead in 'The First Avenger: Captain America.' She'll play Peggy Carter, who in the comics was -- among other things -- an agent who helped the French Resistance.

The 22-year-old -- who reportedly did a screen test for the role last week in London -- joins the already cast Sebastian Stan and, of course, Chris Evans, who will play the titular character. Hugo Weaving is also in negotiations to play Red Skull.
