Hayley Atwell wants to be Lara Croft

April 17th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

So it seems that Hayley Atwell, the actress who portrayed Peggy Carter in the Captain America film, has her eyes set on another role.

She has seemingly started to campaign for the role of Lara Croft in MGM Studios’ Tomb Raider reboot. By campaigning I just mean she has been retweeting several fan tweets for her to get the role over the past couple of days.

Below are a few of said tweets that Atwell, or @HayleyAtwell has retweeted . The reboot is said to be in line with the recent video game, which was also a reboot and had Camilla Luddington star as a budding Lara Croft.

What do you think about Atwell as Lara Croft? Should she at least be in the running?
