Who Should Play Captain America's Leading Lady?

Last month, we reported Deadline Hollywood's scoop on the actors being considered for Paramount's forthcoming Captain America adaptation. Deadline is now reporting that the studio is considering actresses to play the female lead role of "Peggy". Mike Fleming writes:

So far, Keira Knightley, Alice Eve and Emily Blunt are under consideration. Blunt is known to be a favorite of Marvel brass She was offered the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2, until Fox exercised an option it held on the actress and put her into Gulliver's Travels. Scarlett Johansson took the role.

Michael Cassidy won the last poll with an underwhelming 6.2 out of 10 on our scale. Perhaps these ladies can generate a bit more enthusiasm?
