Avengers movie: Desperate Wasp?

http://www.iesb.net/index.php?option...5468&Itemid=99

A can of worms was opened up this weekend when Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria was shot exiting the Marvel offices in Beverly Hills with a stack of comic books in hand, one of them happened to be THE AVENGERS.

I could see it maybe. As long as they don't make Pym a wife-beater douchebag I'll be happy.

Maybe Eva is just a big comics fan?

From everything I've heard the Wasp won't be in the Avengers film so I'm dubious about the accuracy of this.

That sucks ass. Now without Scarlet Witch it's just going to be a sausagefest.

Well, if they do cast her they should save a ton of money on special effects. They won't have to shrink her with CGI!

Pretty much (Cap, Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man (Scott Lang, from the sound of it) and possibly Hulk).

No, no. You take that away form Pym and he's completely unremarkable.

Screw redemption by the way, just keep the persecution flowing for the next 200 years and then we'll think up some more ways to screw over the character.

He's just too blonde. You know what i'm talking about.

Other female avengers than the wasp and Scarlet Witch?

The Blackwidow (Not ver Russiany, but the character is easy to use and excellent to look at.)

Jocasta (Who has the Wasps voice)

Moondragon (Shave her hair off!)

Ms Marvel. (Ridiculously not blonde enough.)

She Hulk (Too Short)

Captain Marvel ( Not Black.)

Spider-Woman (OOOOOO! Now we're talking!)

Mocking Bird (No chance unless Hawkeye is there.)

Sersi (No chance)

Crystal (no Chance)

Ripclaw (No chance.)

SilverClaw (No chance.)

they would have given her new comics. So, failin gthe wasp, it's either black widow or Spider-Woman whose rights would be in the toilet because of that cartoon in the 80s, but then the Scarlet Witch wa in the marvel action hour inthe 90s...

Unless.

Jessica Jones?

You know, they're making a Captain America movie too.

And a Thor movie.

Maybe she's Sharon Carter or Sif?

Re: Avengers movie: Desperate Wasp?

Considering the Avengers movie is coming out after Thor and Captain America from last I checked, they must think that she reads very very slowly.

The bloke from New Christine was fun in Iron Man, but if Fury is going to have any one other than Jasper Stitwell as his major domo... MUST MAKE SURE THAT BLOKE FORM NEW CHRISTINE WAS NOT JASPER STITWELL...But again if she's prepared to have a stern hair cut, what about Maria Hill?

(In comics she took the reigns of S.H.I.E.L.D. after Fury lost the plot but before Tony Stark stole it from her.)

Sharon's race isn't particularly important (though given they seem to be doing all-WWII with Cap's film, Sharon wouldn't be in it; that's one of my problems with the all-WWII approach, since most of Cap's interesting supporting characters aren't there), but Sif's a Nordic goddess, so I doubt Longoria would be doing that.

Natalie Portman should play Wasp. In fact, SHE WILL.

Re: Avengers movie: Desperate Wasp?

Only if Hank Pym beats her.

There's just something about Nataile which rubs the wrong way.
