Yeah the movie and characters are doomed for sure.
Well regardless of what you think about Johnson, it's really not a big deal they aren't Eastern Europeans. At least their European/foreign in general, like they should be, and their ethnicity actually matches how they look in the comics. And again, they're from Eastern Europe but their not of Eastern European descent. They were given to Eastern Europeans by the High Evolutionary as children.
We don't know what kind of origin they'll have in the movie. So far, there's no indication of a High Evolutionary being in the movie. And as for their ethnicity being Eastern European, Roma, British or whatever, I just hope it "agrees" with the names they're ultimately given. If they stick with "Maximoff," I don't think most audiences are going to buy "Wanda and Pietro Maximoff" as someone who grew up in Liverpool or Yorkshire. Stuttgart, maybe, or Prague, Bucharest, or Moscow.
