As earlier reported, actress Alice Eve was up for a role in an upcoming Marvel Studios production. We now have received final word that Ms. Eve has signed a deal with the company this past week for an undisclosed character in an undisclosed film (much like a deal signed earlier this year by Kevin Pennington).
Our source has said that both actors are in final negotiations on character choices. The final candidates for both actors are:
Alice Eve: Sharon Carter, Carol Danvers, Enchantress and Shanna.
Kevin Pennington: Daniel Rand (Iron Fist), Rick Jones, Robert Reynolds (Sentry) and Ka-Zar.
Now we have no idea which character they’ll be from the above or if their first appearance will be in The Avengers. It’s likely that we could see them both (as 3 of the 4 characters) first in The Avengers, or in the Savage Land film Marvel is planning. Alice could also be used in Thor 2 as the Enchantress and Kevin could also be used as Daniel Rand in the Iron Fist film. Please do not take the above list as characters Marvel is looking to fill roles for in The Avengers.
