That is a gorgeous picture of Wanda, and Mila Kunis is a great pick. Emmy Rossum seems too wholesome, and not Eastern European enough...

I think that the Inhumans, as products of alien experimentation, work great as stand ins for mutants and mutancy. If Wanda and Pietro are exposed to the Terrigen mists, they work perfectly. They're not just random powered folk with new origins. They have the same origin, they're part of a new offshoot of humanity, intended for evil, but have decided to become good. Bonus points if Pietro's change is more temporary.

I think it'd be interesting to not have SW go crazy per se. Let her question reality, but lets see it from her point of view, like we would for a psychological thriller, and not from everyone else's like... 'okay, we have to stop Wanda' as it was in comics. Let Wanda be the hero.

Her powers could be very cool to see on screen as well, if you could come up with a way to limit them and give them consistency... and give the movie tension.
