There have been rumors of a possible crossover on Marvel's AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. So will any of THE AVENGERS be invited? Joss Whedon spoke with IGN about a Hero for Hire, and the off chance that any superheroes might cameo when the show hits ABC this fall:

IGN: Your fellow executive produce, Jeffrey Bell, told me that J. August Richards character is not Luke Cage. Is it someone wed be surprised by?

Whedon: You know, hes just a guy. I mean, the whole point of this show is, theyre just guys. Theyre not The Avengers, theyre not the fancy ones. Theyre the people that got sort of hit in the blowback of this super-world. So hes kind of an everyman. He appears to be a very fierce everyman!

IGN: Fans cant resist asking, What superheroes will show up from the comics? Ive seen you say you want to be careful though, to somewhat divvy that out and not load up the show with that sort of thing, right?

Whedon: Its not what the show is about. The show is about the six people who are in the show. And very week well meet somebody that they have to deal with. Some of those people will be very sympathetic, some of them will be evil, some will be from the Marvel canon, some will reference it -- but its not an Easter egg hunt. It really is just about the lives of these people as theyre dealing with this super-world.

Now on to a potential cast member for Whedon's THE AVENGERS 2, Saoirse Ronan was asked by The Mary Sue if she had heard the rumors that she was the prototype for Scarlet Witch, and if she would fill the role:

"I have heard about it and yes, I would. Of course I would. I love Joss and I love those film, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think its very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, Id love to be in it."

Do you guys still think that Ronan could be a possible fit for Scarlet Witch? Would you rather the characters of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver be younger or older?

Saoirse Ronan

her face is one of the most beautiful in hollywood or anywhere. it has this otherworldly feel to it and i'm surprised she hasn't appeared in any major fantasy film. she looks like an elf and i can't see her appearing in super hero movies.

Mila Kunis

Because she's graceful. speaks russian, fits with Whedon's sense of humour, has red witch experience and is a good actress.

A fellow schmoe over on Movie Hotties suggested Molly C. Quinn. That might be a good way to go too.

Rather they'd go for someone else then Ronan. Not really crazy about her.

Maybe Zachary Quinto would make a good Quicksilver?

Sort of wish the Shield show could have been on a network like HBO or AMC. I know ABC is owned by Disney, but there will be so much great potential lost when they go after ABC's demo - stay at home moms who drink wine (Scandal, Once Upton A Time, Nashville). Blech...

I would rather see Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch older than younger. Ronan is a very good, young actress, but a little too young to portray the character.

I still think Cillian Murphy or Chris Pine would be a good choice for Quicksilver. I have no idea who I would want to see as Scarlet Witch though.
