Captain America's seems to be taking to Twitter to launch a subtle campaign to land the role of Lara Croft in the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot.

The talented actress has been retweeting fans suggesting her for the role of Lara over the past few days. Is she quietly throwing her hat into the ring? It definitely seems to be the case:

I, for one, am completely down with this idea. No offense to videogame voicer Camilla Luddington, who I'm sure is a decent actress, but Lara Croft requires a mix of the brains, beauty, and badassery (It's a word; don't argue) that Atwell seems to naturally have in spades. Anyone who can tackle the complicated role of Aliena in Pillars of the Earth, I am behind 100%.

Someone, get me Hollywood on the phone. We need to make this happen.

Would Atwell not be great in the role of Lara Croft? Or do you think another actress should fill the Tomb Raider's shoes? Let us know in the comments, and fo' sho' click [[follow]] so we can keep you updated on all the latest casting news.
