There’s been speculation on the Interwebz that Saoirse Ronan, the young Irish actress from The Host, Hanna and Atonement, might be playing the role of Wanda Maximoff – Magneto’s daughter, otherwise known as Scarlet Witch – in The Avengers 2.
Turns out that’s not actually a thing.
She spoke with IFTN about the word on the street that she might be taking on that role:
Is there any truth to rumours that Joss Whedon has you in mind for a part in ‘The Avengers 2’ as the Scarlet Witch?
That’s not happening, no! I think that was just one of those little rumours floating about.
Joss Whedon has confirmed the presence of Scarlet Witch in the sequel to The Avengers, but we still don’t know who will be playing her. Unfortunately, it won’t be Ronan in the Scarlet Witch costume, even though she did express an interest in doing so not long ago. She would’ve been good for the role.
Who would you like to see in the Scarlet Witch gear?
