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.)
