Buzz Brews for Eva Longoria as Wasp in ‘Avengers’ Sequel

Eva Longoria might be moving on from Wisteria Lane into more heroic territory soon. The Desperate Housewives actress is said to be in the running for the role of Wasp in the second installment of The Avengers movie franchise, according to Fox News (via Comic Book Movie).

A source says that Longoria screen-tested for the part in late spring, and impressed the brass at Marvel enough to put her on the short list of contenders for the role of the insectoid superhero:

“Marvel is in negotiations with Eva and she is just right for the role…Eva is cute, sexy and full of energy for the part. The character is a bit like Gabby, her character on Desperate Housewives.”

Interesting comparison. Must be because of all the stinging verbal barbs that the DH ladies hurl at each other on the show.
