Saoirse Ronan Addresses Possibility Of Playing Scarlet Witch In THE AVENGERS Sequel
The Host star Saoirse Ronan discusses recent reports of her being considered to play Scarlet Witch in Marvel's The Avengers 2, saying that she's heard these rumors and that she would love to take the role if offered.
A couple weeks ago, it was reported that Marvel and writer-director Joss Whedon were looking at young actress Saoirse Ronan (The Host, Hanna) as a "protoype" for the character Scarlet Witch in The Avengers sequel. Of course, as the script for the untitled follow-up is being written right now, no offer has been made. Speaking with The Mary Sue while promoting Violet & Daisy, Ronan was asked if she's heard these reports and whether or not she was interested, and had this to say. "I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it."
Joss Whedon recently confirmed that both Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be in The Avengers 2, saying that, "they sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier." Could the brother/sister duo - best known as the children of X-Men's Magneto - end up being villains in the sequel, rather than members of the team? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
With production beginning in the UK early next year, The Avengers 2 is set to hit theaters May 1st, 2015. Would you like to see Saoirse Ronan as Scarlet Witch? And who should play Quicksilver?
