Saoirse Ronan Talks Scarlet Witch Casting Rumors

Two weeks ago, SuperHeroHype broke the story that Marvel Studios are looking at Irish actress Saoirse Ronan as their “model” for the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avengers sequel. While this isn’t a confirmation on the casting, it does point toward a general direction that the film could go with the characters. The Mary Sue spoke with the actress about the rumor and her interest in taking on the part.

“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.”
