Longoria Denies ‘Wasp’ Casting Rumours.

By on 28 July, 2010

Eva Longoria Parker has shot down rumours which suggest that she’s currently in talks to star as ‘The Wasp‘ in an upcoming Avengers movie – HitFix reports

Speaking from the set of ‘Desperate Housewives‘, she tells HitFix:

“I had taken a meeting about a different movie at Marvel and that’s where [it] started.”

Longoria Parker didn’t elaborate on exactly which Marvel movie she discussed, but insists she “loves comic book stuff. I do! I think it’s fun.”

She also adds that she actually doesn’t know anything about the Wasp and most moviegoers might not either. Better known as wannabe fashion designer Janet Van Dyne, The Wasp was one of the founding members of the superhero group – The Avengers – in the team’s original comic book incarnation. Not exactly a pushover, Van Dyne has the ability to shrink, grow insect wings and fire a powerful energy sting. During the history of the super group she had a long tenure as Chairwoman or team leader. Surprisingly, no one was announced to play the character when the studio debuted the cast of the upcoming Joss Whedon film over the weekend.

So, for one who plays a fiesty Gaby in ‘Desperate Housewives‘, could Longoria Parker make a great Van Dyne

She adds

“I think it’s a fantastic rumour and I’m just going to go with it and maybe it’ll get me hired.”
