Joss Whedon has recently been discussing the fact that Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will be appearing in The Avengers 2, with rumours circulating that Saoirse is the frontrunner to play the latter.
The Hanna star addressed those rumours this week, stating that she’d jump at the chance to play the comic book character.
“I have heard about it and yes, I would” she told The Mary Sue. “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.”
