‘Avengers Age of Ultron’ may feature Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch

Hanna star Saoirse Ronan may have passed on the role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron as Elizabeth Olsen is rumored to be in the runing.

Ronan was rumored to be at the top of the list to play the mutant for the film, but now Bleeding Cool reported on the new possible casting of Olsen as Scarlet Witch in The Avengers 2.

Scarlet_Witch_QuicksilverWhedon previously talked about Scarlet Witch and Quiksilver in the Marvel sequel, saying “You know, they had a rough beginning. They’re interesting to me because 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. I’m not putting any characters in the movie that will make things easier.”

While the pair are the offspring of Magneto, FOX owns the rights to the X-Universe so the links will not be a part of the film. Separate characters will exist in X-Men: Days of Future Past (Evan Peters playing Quicksilver in the 2014 film.) 

Kick Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is the lead candidate for the Quicksilver role. Here’s some of his most recent comments on taking the role – read here

Olsen has a number of high-profile films coming up, including Spike Lee’s Oldboy and Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboots.

Age of Ultron arrives in theaters May 1, 2015
