Julie Benz Would Be Up For Playing 'The Wasp' In Joss Whedon's Sequel To THE AVENGERS
In a chat with fans at the Fan Expo Canada on Thursday, the former Dexter star was asked whether she's talked with Joss Whedon (who she worked with on Buffy and Angel) about playing 'The Wasp' in the 2015 dated sequel to Marvel's The Avengers.
Best known for playing 'Rita Morgan' in Dexter, Julie Benz is no stranger to the superhero genre after roles in No Ordinary Family and Punisher: War Zone. The actress worked with Joss Whedon on both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and so it should come as no surprise that she was quizzed on her possible involvement with his planned sequel to Marvel's The Avengers at a fan Q&A at the Fan Expo Canada. When asked if she has heard anything about a possible role in the highly anticipated follow-up (specifically 'The Wasp'), she had this to say.
"No, I haven’t, but I like that rumor. Can we start it? Everybody get your phones out and tweet it, tweet it to Joss Whedon! I don’t even know who Wasp is. Let’s make this happen, people! Let’s see the power of Twitter! I know Joss is on there, I would love that. I would work with [Joss] if he called and read the phone book in his living room."
