Eva Longoria Will Not Play The Wasp In The Avengers
With Ant-Man officially not part of Joss Whedon's The Avengers, it would make very little sense for Janet Van Dyne, a.k.a. The Wasp, to have a role. After all, the two share very similar powers and exist largely as a couple (being married will cause that). Nevertheless, the "Eva Longoria as The Wasp" rumor has been around since 2008. Time to officially put this one to rest.
Gossip Cop is reporting that sources close to production have denied that Logoria will be a part of Whedon's 2012 superhero team-up film. The rumor began almost two years ago when Longoria was spotted leaving the offices of Marvel Comics in New York with a bunch of reading material in hand, and was perpetuated recently by Fox News (who also say that Nathan Fillion is set to play Ant-Man).
It's about time that we put this one to rest. Plenty of "inside sources" are likely to emerge in the coming weeks saying they have the scoop on The Avengers, but the truth is that what we saw on stage at Comic Con is our team. Why would they go so much trouble to sign Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo so quickly and then just send out a few press releases a week later? Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Nick Fury, and Hawkeye - that's your Avengers line-up, get used to it.
