Saoirse addresses Scarlet Witch rumors once again

Saoirse had talked about playing Scarlet Witch not very long ago, as you can read here, and she has now addressed the rumors once again.

“[Joining Avengers 2 as Scarlet Witch is] not happening, no! I think that was just one of those little rumours floating about.”

Considering the casting for Wanda (Scarlet Witch) has already begun, it is possible that Saoirse is actually not in the running. Unless, of course, she’s been told to keep her involvement secret, although I’m not sure why that would be necessary. Maybe, if her casting is part of a big Comic Con reveal, or other such giant media event. Perhaps we shall find out soon?

Saoirse Addresses Scarlet Witch Rumours

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.”
