If Felicia Day Has Been Cast in Joss Whedon's Avengers, the Franchise Just Got 42 Times Cuter

The good folks over at GeekTyrant have discovered, via a tip, that Felicia Day’s name has been added to the cast of The Avengers, according to IMDb. She’d be playing Abigal Brand, a character actually created by Joss Whedon in his comic series, Astonishing X-Men. According to Wikipedia, Brand is a commanding officer of S.W.O.R.D., a S.H.I.E.L.D. offshoot that deals with defending the Earth from extraterrestrial threats.

Although — as Geek Tyrant correctly points out — just because a name is listed on IMDb doesn’t mean it’s true. Someone could’ve made a few logical assumptions — Whedon’s history with Day (in Buffy and Dr. Horrible), for instance. Or maybe it was submitted by someone who knows. Who knows? Who really cares? For today — and maybe just the next few hours, until some buzz-killing dick with a movie blog refutes the rumor — we can at least hope, pretend, speculate and — most importantly — fantasize about Felicia Day in this suit:
