Alice Eve was once in the mix to play Agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, she was also a fan-favorite to play Sharon Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier but was never in the mix. Neither of these roles landed on her lap, but in a recent interview with Film Fad she reveals being still hopeful the right Marvel project will come around and praises Kevin Feige.
“You know I’m a huge fan of the Marvel movies,” she said. “They obviously are hugely important in our society right now and the ability to kind of innovate cinema has been amazing. I think everyone into them should be grateful for them for reviving such an interest in it. It’s like a cult following on a massive scale now with these movies. So yeah, I’m a huge fan of theirs and I think Kevin [Feige] is an incredibly talented man who has turned this thing around. So, yeah if the thing was right, I’d love to talk to them.”
You might be asking yourselves, why would Marvel cast someone they didn’t want for one role and put them in another one?
Well, Scarlett Johansson was originally eyed for Scarlet Witch, but was switched into the Black Widow role when Emily Blunt had to drop out of Iron Man 2, Wanda was then written out of the film. Scarlet Witch actress Elizabeth Olsen had originally been looked at for Sharon Carter before landing the Age of Ultron part.
It’s funny even though they missed two shots to work with each other in the MCU, Chris Evans and Alice co-star in his directorial debut Before We Go, the film in question she’s promoting for the interview.
Eve’s role as Dr. Carol Marcus in Star Trek Into Darkness might be another reason why Marvel might reconsider her for other roles. The Trek movies seem to be a stomping ground for their casting department as Chris Hemsworth, Zoe Saldana, and Benedict Cumberbatch have landed Marvel parts after their involvement in the franchise.
She wouldn’t be a terrible choice for parts like Valkyrie or Amora The Enchantress in Thor: Ragnarok. Alice is also in a prime position to be considered for the Carol Danvers role in Captain Marvel, along with rumored actresses Rebecca Ferguson and Emily Blunt.
