RUMOR: Is Marvel Looking At Saoirse Ronan For Scarlet Witch In AVENGERS 2?

It's casting rumor time again! No offer has been made of course, but word is that Marvel have the Irish actress in mind as the "prototype" for the Scarlet Witch role in Joss Whedon's Avengers sequel. Read on for more..

SHH reckon they've sussed out which direction Marvel are planing to go when it comes time to cast the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver roles in Avengers 2. They don't have any info on who the studio might have in mind for the latter (though they reckon the movie version of the character will be "euro" and "edgy"), but apparently they are looking for a Saoirse Ronan "type" for Wanda Maximoff.



"Although Joss is still writing and probably not ready to send anything out to actors, for the two roles, they're generally looking for actors in their 20s and we've heard word that the "prototype" for their Scarlet Witch is none other than Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. Except something to note is that they're going "British" for the role rather than trying to have actors playing Eastern Europeans."


If this is true and Ronan is who they have on their radar, there's nothing to suggest that an official offer won't be made when it comes time to cast the roles. Ronan is a great actress (we won't blame her too much for The Host!), but does she suit this character? Sound off in the usual place.
