Eva Longoria Visits Marvel Studios

We can only imagine at this point that Marvel Studios is working through the planning stages for their Avengers movie that is set to be released in 2011. With the slim timetable that they have set and the progression of films, from Iron Man 2 and Thor targeted for 2010 and Captain America in 2011, and the promise of continuity within the casts of all 4 films, they’ve got their work cut out for them. But, as any fan of the Marvel Universe would tell you, if they can pull it off, they could be looking at four of the most successful comic book adaptations ever.

So needless to say, with all of this planning might come some conversations with actors, directors and screenwriters in the near future — if they are going to make this all happen, they are going to have to get moving in the near future. So it is no surprise that they are taking meetings. What is a potential surprise is that Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria was seen at the Marvel Studios offices yesterday, leaving with a stack of Avengers comics in her hand. As you can see from the photos, Longoria wasn’t shy about what she was holding, perhaps trying to be so brazen in order to stir up buzz. If that was her intention, it appears that she’s winning. Many speculations have arisen as to what character in the Marvel universe would fit Longoria’s limited acting ability, with most people pointing to Janet van Dyne, a.k.a The Wasp. Janet was the eventual wife of Dr. Hank Pym, also known as Ant Man. Pym subjected her to a procedure which granted her the ability to, upon shrinking, grow wings and fire blasts of energy, which she called her “wasp’s stings”. The two would later join up with The Avengers, which was comprised of Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man and The Hulk.

While this is, of course, all speculation, it is certainly worth mentioning — because you just never know what is going on inside the halls of Marvel Studios. Of course, when we get some official word or anything more solid, we’ll let you know.

For now, what would you think of Longoria as The Wasp, or any other character in the Marvel Universe?
