UPDATED: Four Actresses On Avengers Shortlist Revealed!

THR have revealed the shortlist of ladies vying for the mystery female Avenger still to join the team Joss Whedon's upcoming movie. V's Morena Baccarin and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World's Mary Elizabeth Winstead among them..

Last night Samuel l Jackson revealed on Jimmy Kimmel that his "sidekick" was still to be cast for the Avengers movie. Well it looks as if that part might go to one of the following actresses.




From THR..

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.


The site also says that screen tests will be conducted this Friday. Baccarin has long been rumored to be in talks for the role of Wasp(and although Marvel are not revealing anything yet I think it's a strong possibility that is the character these ladies are in the running for). She has worked with Whedon before on Firefly ands it's spin off movie Serenity. Winstead is also a big fan favorite having starred in last years highly underrated Scott Pilgrim Vs The World. Lucas is best known for her tv work on Friends With Benefits and has a role in Big Momma’s House 3. And Smulders you will know from CBS' How I Met Your Mother.

More word on this as we have it. I know it's role dependent, but which of these four would you like to see most be a part of The Avengers?

Update: According to "reliable sources" over at /Film Winstead is not testing for the role.
