It was recently reported by Super Hero Hype that Saoirse Ronan (The Host) was being used as the prototype for director Joss Whedon‘s Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2. In a recent interview with The Mary Sue, the actress reveals that not only has sheheard these rumors but that she’d be interested in taking on the role. Here’s what she said:
“I have heard about it and yes, I would. Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films, and I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.”
Whedon has confirmed that Scarlet Witch will be included in the movie along with her brother Quicksilver, explaining that they “sort of represent the part of the world that wouldn’t necessarily agree with The Avengers. So they’re not there to make things easier.” (Of course this was before yesterday’s news that Quicksilver would make an appearance in Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past)
So I guess it’s a safe bet that if Whedon and Marvel ask her to be in the film that she’ll do it.
Avengers 2 is scheduled for release on May 1, 2015
