EVA Longoria is reportedly set to join the Avengers movie franchise.
According to Fox News, the Desperate Housewives actress is in talks with studio Marvel about starring in the second Avengers film as The Wasp.
“Marvel is in negotiations with Eva and she is just right for the role,” a source said.
“First, she read for the part, then she went into the studio for camera tests. The team liked her for The Wasp so much that she did green screen work in the late spring. She’s perfect in size and attitude.
“Eva is cute, sexy and full of energy for the part. The character is a bit like Gabby, her character on Desperate Housewives.”
The source said Eva will likely shoot her scenes in New York, where much of the film will be shot in the coming months.
“The movie is going to start filming this fall. There’s a lot going on, and scheduling all these busy actors is a task, but so far it seems like everyone’s schedule is coming together,” the insider said.
“Right now, Captain America: The First Avenger, starring Chris Evans, is shooting in England and it will pretty much be back to back films.”
