'V' Star Morena Baccarin Among Actresses on ‘Avengers’ Shortlist

Heat Vision says:

Marvel is conducting screen tests Friday for one of the final roles still looking to be cast in The Avengers, the all-star superhero ensemble being directed by Joss Whedon. Last night Samuel L. Jackson revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live it is that of his "sidekick."

V star Morena Baccarin is on that list. Also said to be vying for the part are Jessica Lucas, Cobie Smulders and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who are still negotiating their test deals for the part of a key member of the espionage agency run by Nick Fury, played in the Marvel movies by Jackson. Some earlier speculation pegged the role to be that of Avengers team member Janet van Dyne/the Wasp, but Marvel declined to comment.

This would be a very good casting choice. She actually LOOKS like The Wasp in ever respect.

Agreed that she definitely has the look for it!

I never saw that movie, I think I'm going to see it on Netflix. But, that pic does make her seem like it.

@Sunny - V? The one she's in is a remake of the original, and I don't really like it... for whatever that's worth! :P

wow robin from how i met your mother is going for the part....nice i love her...

Crazay2092d ago

Cobie is HAWT but I'm not sure I can see her in this role. Probably because I see her more as a comedy actress - Ain't typecasting grand?


Sunny_D2092d ago

I think she is alright looking.
