THE HOST Star Saoirse Ronan Being Considered To Play Scarlet Witch In THE AVENGERS 2?


Here’s an intriguing casting rumor for Marvel’s highly anticipated sequel to The Avengers. Recently, it was seemingly confirmed that mutant brother and sister Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be featured in Joss Whedon’s follow-up to the biggest comic book movie of all time, and now we have our first word on who might be in consideration to take on the role of the former. Apparently, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan (who most recently starred in The Host) is Marvel’s “prototype” for who to look at to play Wanda Maximoff. No offer has been made to Ronan, of course, but this rumor heavily suggests that Scarlet Witch will be younger in The Avengers 2 than in the comics. As for Pietro/Quicksilver? The character is “only described as being “euro” and “edgy,” but there are plenty of British actors in their 20s who could fit that bill.” With filming expected to begin in February, The Avengers 2 is set to hit theaters May 1st, 2015.
