Avengers 2 Rumor: Saoirse Ronan is the prototype for Scarlet Witch

May. 10, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Recently it was confirmed by director Joss Whedon that the brother and sister team, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would make an appearance in THE AVENGERS 2.

Also since negotiations are coming up for some of the main actors, so it makes sense that they would already be looking for some actors to fill the new roles. Let's also take into account that Whedon is still writing on this thing so the picture for who they want may not be entirely clear. According to a rumor from Superherohype.com, it's looking kind of clear for Scarlet Witch. They say the "prototype" for the character is the lovely Saorise Ronan.

Would she be a great fit for Wanda? I'm up for giving her a chance. I like the direction that Whedon has taken with THE AVENGERS so if she is one of the candidates that's fine by me.

All we know is that they are looking for actors in their 20s. Yeah, that's a wide net. When it comes to Quicksilver aka Pietro they are using the words "euro" and "edgy". That's cute. Don't expect them to reveal the name of their father either. Kevin Feige said that would not be brought up. Maybe it shouldn't now, but what about for the third installment?

Do it, Joss!

I'm tired of hearing people talk about how big a girls' breasts should be. Ok. Comic characters are ridiculously in-shape, have bodies that aren't realistic and typically feature women with huge breasts.

who cares? Saoirse is a great actress. Give her a chance, and worry about cup-size another time.

You need at least a C-cup to pull off Scarlet Witch.

Here, here! This reeks of the same stupid thought process that lead to Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane. What happened to casting ridiculously attractive women to play ridiculously attractive female characters? It worked for Scarlet Johannson as Black Widow, why not carry the same logic for Avengers 2?

What happened to casting good actors for parts? Oh, wait, I'm talking to comic book fans who prefer to see the male parts cast by wrestlers and female parts cast by pornstars.

@Deadly Sinner-Never said anyone had to be a porn star or a wrestler, I just said they had to be attractive. If the people involved in those two professions are attractive to you then to each their own. I don't see the point in knocking down comic book fans though.

Ummmmmm I don't get it. Is Joss Whedon watching her movies and writing the character to fit her personality? That's weird, Joss Whedon reads and has written for comics, the only personality he should be crafting this for is the Scarlet Witch herself. I call shenanigans on this story!

Personally...

I think she's a horrible choice for the Scarlet Witch.

Doesn't have the... um, assetts.

I like Saiorse, but not as The Scarlet Witch. Wanda needs to be more sexy and... well, built.

I would like to see someone like Alexandra Daddario get the role.

Prototypes are generally people that concept drawing artist use to model their drawings after, nothing more.

Maybe Rooney Mara would make for a good Scarlet Witch even though she is close to 30.

It would be awesome if this was the first step towards knocking down the wall between Fox's X-Men and Paramount/Marvel Studios/Disney's (?) Avengers universe movies, but it'll never happen because movie studios are greedy.

She might be a little young, but that wouldn't bother me as long as she gave a great performance which she most certainly can (ie Hannah, The Lovely Bones, and Atonement).

Quicksilvers white hair is one of those things that only make sense in a comic book. Why would someone in their 20's have white hair?

Why would someone in their 20's have white hair?

Why would someone be able to run at supersonic speeds or be able to manipulate probability? I don't know, maybe its because they are mutants?

Good choice for the character. I think she'd be able to pull it off, from what I'm imagining in my head anyways. As for Quiksilver? Now that I know the general age range they're going for these characters, I'm really at a loss for who I think could play him.

Hope they don't offer her the part, I've disliked her in pretty much everything she's done. Can't deny she's a decent actress but there's something about her that really doesn't appeal to me.

younger is better for these two additions.

i feel like making them younger is a good choice...bc it doesn't detract from the core of the "older" team too much and it gives them an identity that's not so established in maturity...makes them a little "greener" than the core group of avengers and that breeds really good character development....dare i say that when i see this duo entering the mix i get a very THUNDERCATS "wiley-kit/ wiley-kat" vibe...like they are an arm of the team,...but a team unto themselves as well...also makes room

Good casting. I hope they do keep Quicksilvers green suit and try not to make it look like a S.H.E.I.L.D agent stype suit.

I'm fine with Saoirse as SW, but for quicksilver really hoping that whoever they get for the role has to have that hair like in the picture.

Saoirse is a good actress, so I'd have no issue with this. She's much younger than any fan-suggestion. I find it interesting what age they might be going for.
