A while ago I posited that though she probably wouldnâ€™t acquire her own movie, The Wasp was almost certainly going to appear in The Avengers movie that Marvel is promising. Janet Pym, nÃ©e, Van Dyne, aka, the Wasp, was a founding member of the Avengers, and Ant-Manâ€™s wife/ex-wife. So we could conceivably see her appear in the Ant-Man movie as well.
Now, thanks to Flawed Hollywood, a photo of Eva Longoria exiting the Marvel Comics offices on Friday, carrying a pile of reading material including an Avengers book, has got me very excited. (Check out the image here at right and click for larger view.)
A quick look at her face and you see Janet Pym immediately. I honestly donâ€™t think they could have picked someone better for the Wasp if they tried.
Is she going to play the Wasp? I donâ€™t know, but I would sure love to see her in that role. And I donâ€™t actually think that people will have to wait for The Avengers movie to come along to see her, rather seeing her in the 2010 Ant-Man movie.
