We previously reported months ago that 'V' star, Morena Baccarin, was rumoured to be in talks to star on Joss Whedon´s big screen adaptation of Marvel´s all-star superhero comic book The Avengers.
Now The Hollywood Reporter exclusively informs that Baccarin has made the short list for the screen tests that will take place today to play a character that will serve as Nick Fury´s (Samuel L. Jackson) sidekick in the movie. No word yet on who this character may be, although the role of Janet van Dyne/the Wasp was rumoured a while ago without Marvel confirming or denying it.
Other actresses on that list include Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place), Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).
Personally, our money is on Baccarin as she has already worked with director Joss Whedon before on Serenity and has some experience in the fantastic genre. Who would you choose?
