Saoirse Ronan Deflects AVENGERS 2 Question; But Is Very Interested In A CBM Role

While interviewing the Irish actress at TIFF about her new movie, How I live Now, Collider dropped in a couple of CBM related questions. It seems we're no closer to finding out if those Scarlet Witch rumors held any water, but Ronan does say she'd love to play a superhero..

Most of the following interview deals with Ronan's latest movie, the directors she's worked with, and the projects she has coming up in the future -- but good 'ol Frosty drops in a couple of comic book movie questions around the 9:20 point. When asked if she'd have any interest in starring in a superhero flick, Ronan says she'd "love to, absolutely love to" and says she enjoyed getting a small taste of that world with Hanna. But when she's asked outright if she actually went in and read for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron she simply says "well I'm not doing The Avengers", before dismissing it as "online stuff" with a smile. But I dunno, something about the way she answers makes me think she might well have went in for a chat. What do you think?

I'd prefer the Olsen woman. I forget her first name

Future Black Widow once ScarJo hangs it up.
Reasonnnn - 9/12/2013, 12:59 PM
So like 5-6 years from now

@Chumofskyandsons Elizabeth Olsen is not an Olsen twin. She's actually talented.

@Levi: Love the sarcasm bro lol she would bring down the quality of the Spider-Man franchise as a whole.

In all seriousness, I would greatly prefer her not to be in a CBM simply cause she doesn't have the acting chops to pull it off and her in action movie (Hanna) already proved to be literally unbelievable. But, to please fanboys. Maybe she can play Mera in an Aquaman movie that is directed by Aquaman. It'll give them some use. It's actually not a bad idea, I just wouldn't have any interest in it.

I think Elizabeth Olsen would be a better SW than Saoirse Ronan.

@Reasonnnn: if she were to become Black Widow or be part of the MCU in any way, shape or form. That lowers the quality of the universe and would bring an end to it in my opinion. She doesn't make a believable action star, that's one of the problems with her playing any sort of superhero.

Directed by Alfonso Cuaron. My bad
symbiotics - 9/12/2013, 1:43 PM
the "Olsen Twin" so many judge is actually the only talented Olsen twin, check Martha Marcy May Marlene for proof
Reasonnnn - 9/12/2013, 1:44 PM
@EdgyOutsider respectfully disagree
Nomis1800 - 9/12/2013, 2:03 PM
Should be in a DC movie!!!!!!

I loved Hanna, just saying. Now, mainstream comic book star is something different. I like Saoirse, but not sure what role she might fit. Supergirl crosses my mind, but she doesn't seem right for that.

She's like albino tho..if she got implants u could probably see them through her skin...ick.

...............

After hearing her accent, I can really see her as Michael Fassbenders daughter in Xmen
DPudz - 9/12/2013, 2:34 PM
Magik!! she could play a good Magik.
l0rdleg0las - 9/12/2013, 4:00 PM
Olsen is a better actress and more attractive.
ThePowerCosmic - 9/12/2013, 4:05 PM
Olsen will be much better, this chick looks nowhere in the realm of SW. olsen is a deadringer and she is also a great actress.
TelaVizion - 9/12/2013, 4:33 PM
Why are some of you ppl keep calling Elizabeth Olsen "Olsen Twin"? She's the twins younger sister.
superotherside - 9/12/2013, 4:50 PM
Love her voice. IDK who she'd play though...
ZeroEffect - 9/12/2013, 6:37 PM
Saoirse would make a great Kara aka Supergirl. Make it happen WB/DC.
caroldanvers - 9/12/2013, 7:03 PM
elizabeth olsen is 50 times more talented that saoirse imo, she's better for wanda. not to mention she would've looked like a child next to aaron johnson in my opinion.

but i agree that saoirse could be a good kara or magick, i'm down with those choices.
