Is Eva Longoria Parker The Wasp? Not Yet

It’s the Avengers rumor that won’t die – and Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker is perfectly happy about that, even if she doesn’t know who the Wasp actually is.

Rumors have been circling about Longoria Parker playing Janet Van Dyne in Marvel Studios’ big 2012 release for months and, as far as she’s concerned, that’s a great thing:

I love comics. I think it’s a fantastic rumor… We’re just gonna go with it. Maybe that will get me hired.

She did admit, however, that she wasn’t familiar with the character, which leads me to wonder: What comics (if any) does Longoria Parker read? Me, I hope she’s a Hernandez Bros fan.

(Also, Marvel? Just hire her already.)

    oh no, she can't be the Wasp as the Wasp is white and Eva is not!! the real fanboys will have a fit!!!

  • Mr. Anchovy

    I'm more concerned with the fact that Longoria Parker is a terrible actress. How about…oh, pretty much anyone else?

    She said she “loves comics”, not that she actually reads them. ;)

    Are we ever going to move into the 21st Century? There are tons of rich American Latina's in the north, central, and southern hemispheres. I do not believe a common (conventional) name should be a barrier to entry.

    Unless we intend to keep making 1960's comic narratives.

    No one ever said the Avengers was a period film.

    I love comics and I don't even know who the Wasp is as well.
