Eva Longoria, best known for playing the slut from Desperate Housewives, was photographed leaving the L.A. offices of Marvel Studios clutching a business card and some comic books in her hand. However, they were no ordinary comic books…one was The Avengers! The same Avengers that Marvel are planning to make into a movie in 2011. Suspicious? I assume so!
The LA Times speculate that Eva Longoria may be playing:
Janet Van Dyne, the winsome Wasp, a founding member of the Marvel super team and eventual wife of Hank Pym, the Ant-Man.
These images could mean a number of things:
A) Eva was given free comics by Marvel for the sake of it.
B) Eva was given free comics by Marvel so that she could research whatever role they want her for, and she would accept or decline the role based on her impressions of the character.
C) Eva was given free comics by Marvel because she is either playing a character in The Avengers movie or the upcoming Ant-Man movie.
Eva playing Wasp in the upcoming Ant-Man movie seems likely, seeing asthough it is directed by Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright and a comedy role would suit Eva more than a serious team Avengers movie.
