‘Avengers 2′ Poll: Which Starlet Should Play Scarlet Witch?
Yesterday a rumor emerged tying Elizabeth Olsen to the role of Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon‘s ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron.’ While we should take this revelation with a grain (or two) of salt, we’d like to hear your thoughts: Is Ms. Olsen your pick for Scarlet Witch?
According to Bleeding Cool, Olsen’s name has come up, thanks to the fact that Saoirse Ronan, evidently Whedon’s template for the Scarlet Witch character, passed on the role. Olsen is Whedon and Marvel’s second choice and, if she signs on, will tackle a European accent. (Scarlet Witch was born in the fictional European country of Transia and raised by gypsies.)
Olsen already has a ton of indie cred, thanks to her breakout role in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene,’ and she’s about to become familiar to the masses in films like ‘Oldboy‘ and ‘Godzilla.’ But is there someone out there you think would make a better Scarlet Witch?
