Which Actress Is Whedon Modeling the Scarlet Witch After?

saoirse_ronan_curls_the_hostWe reported last week that Joss Whedon wants to include Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avengers sequel.

Whedon is writing the script for the upcoming project and Superhero Hype reports he’s modeling the big-screen version of the Scarlet Witch after actress Saoirse Ronan.

“They’re generally looking for actors in their 20s and we’ve heard word that the “prototype” for their Scarlet Witch is none other than Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. Except something to note is that they’re going “British” for the role rather than trying to have actors playing Eastern Europeans,” the site reports.

This means that should the Scarlet Witch be part of the final script for Avengers 2, Ronan will be sent a copy of the script and be in the conversation to be part of the sequel. This does not mean she’s been cast yet. It’s still to early for casting news on the role.

For now, we’ll ask you if you like the the direction Joss is taking with the character and could you see Ronan in the role?
