There has been a lot of comic book movie related bits that we missed over the last 24 hours, so I thought I’d do a round-up. After the jump you will find out who Edgar Wright says Ant-Man won’t fit in The Avengers, watch a leaked copy of Josh Hutcherson‘s Spider-Man audition/stunt tape, hear what Jon Favreau thinks about Hulk being recast, and a new Fox News report which claims that Eva Longoria will join The Avengers as The Wasp? Hit the jump.

FlawedHollywood has a photo of Eva Longoria leaving the offices of Marvel Studios with a business card and a hand full of reading material, an Avengers comic book on the top of the stack. Longoria’s television show Desperate Housewives will be coming to an end right around the time the Marvel comic book team-up is being adapted into a feature film. This has led many to speculate that Longoria might be in the running to play Janet Van Dyne aka Wasp, a founding member of the super team and eventual wife of Ant-Man. But does Longoria have what it takes to be a superhero?
New Line has released a trailer and new theatrical poster for the upcoming supernatural romantic comedy Over Her Dead Body from former Drew Carey Show writer Jeff Lowell. Paul Rudd, Eva Longoria, Lake Bell, Jason Biggs, and Lindsay Sloane star in the story of a woman who discovers her new boyfriend is being haunted by the bitchy ghost of his former fiancee.
I’m pretty sure the only reason I’m posting this is because Paul Rudd is in it. I’m certainly not posting it because it looks hilarious. It looks like a watchable date movie. And by that I mean, a movie that your girlfriend might try to drag you to that you won’t have to make up an excuse for. Watch the trailer and see the poster after the jump.
