Saoirse Ronan addresses ‘Avengers 2,’ Scarlet Witch rumors, saying ‘I’d love to be in it’

The Host star Saoirse Ronan responded to the rumors that she was in talks to join Avengers 2 as Scarlet Witch.

Talking with Mary Jane, she doesn’t confirm or deny rumors , but speaks to joining Joss Whedon for the Avengers sequel.

“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”.

Ronan is being rumored to be the “prototype” for the character and the fan response on the Internet has been very positive.

Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver have been confirmed by Whedon as appearing in the film, although nobody at Marvel has commented on the possibility of casting Ronan, or even the veracity of rumors that she was being used as the basis for establishing the look.

The film rights for Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are jointly-held by 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney Studios/Marvel, meaning that it’s theoretically plausible that Ronan, if cast, could either appear in both the X-Men and Avengers movies; or find herself playing the same character at the same time as another actress in opposing franchises.

Marvel’s The Avengers 2 is set for release on May 1st 2015.
