Is Eva Longoria Parker Set to Play Wasp in 'The Avengers'?

A new rumor sees the actress walking out of the Marvel Offices with Comics in her hand.
Movie Picture
Flawed Hollywood ran a series of photos, of which you can see below, that featured Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria Parker walking out of the Marvel Offices with a stack of The Avengers comic books in her hands. Now, Los Angeles Times is running a story that Eva may be up for a starring role in the 2011 release.

Is this true? No official word has come out as of yet. Right now it is a fun rumor, with Flawed Hollywood noting "The Avengers just happens to be getting made into a movie in 2011, around the time that Desperate Housewives will be ending."

The Los Angeles Times speculates that the actress is up for the role of Janet Van Dyne, better known as The Wasp. The Avengers is set to hit theaters sometime in 2011, so that gives us plenty of time to air this rumor out.

Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.

    I think scarlet would be too good looking for wasp, wasp needs to be a strong, smart, just a solid hero all around and i dont see that at all when i look at eva

    Hopefully just a rumour...there are more interesting characters out there to complete the Avengers roster(especially if they're not afraid of going in with a more "New Avengers" style) , and even if wasp was to figure in it I'd rather see a short haired Lucy Liu like in the Ultimates...

    oh the possibilities...

  16. aeinhorn

    Hey, she'd do fine as the main-Marvel ccntinuity version of the Wasp. The Ultimates version does look to be more Asian, but not the main continuity one.

    And yeah, she couldn't be as bad as Jessica Alba was in FF.

    draftshadow, if you'd read former comments, you'd know that that question was already asked and answered. Please pay more attention next time.

    ComradeHenson and Agent VIS, sounds cool. As long as she's not made up or anything, you know. LOL! Why start making up characters NOW? LOL!

  25. T.Clark

    She's more asain in the ultimates, but in the regular marvel u, i guess this could work...still looks kinda fake

  26. ed_wood

    This could work, if this actually happens.

  27. -comrade-

    She's Hank Pym's/Giant Man's/Ant-Man's wife.
    If she can hold the roll up without putting out the worst female superhero on the team performance (a la Jessica Alba), she should be fine. But I thought that Jan Pym more prevalantly had Asian roots. Whatever.
