i'm not seeing it, at all. there are certainly actresses who look more like the character than Ronan. imo, Olsen isn't one of them. not even when i squint. Ronan hasn't an innocent look that i associate with Wanda because of Pietro's overprotectiveness.

I wonder if we would be see this much aversion towards Olsen had she been rumoured to be in the running first, rather than Ronin?

And when she's cast and is terrific, overzealous fans will be proven wrong YET AGAIN (that has been a trend since IM and TDK came out).

I didn't care about Charles Xavier or Magneto being British. I didn't care about BW not having a Russian accent. I didn't care that Lois had red hair. As long as the writing and performance is good, I'll go with it. Besides, Wanda can still be Romanian, just perhaps raised in the US.

She'll be British.

And the point of her being foreign is to keep her character's essence from the comics. She and Quicksilver being foreign is supposed to act as a way to introduce different values and perspective in the comics, you lose that by making them American.

I love Elizabeth Olsen. I think she is the most talented new star in about 5 years. I absolutely think that in 10-20 years, she will be seen as one of the greatest actresses of her generation.

Not to mention Black Widow who doesnt have that Stalingrad accent; yeah I know a top spy can take any accent, but when she is around Nick or the superfriends, she is herself and should have her natural accent

One more thing, if she is cast, I love the irony that they're using an American actresses to play Wanda, after certain posters complained about FOX using an American to play Pietro in X-Men, and pointed to MS giving us a more accurate version of the characters.
She is good, very good. She isn't as good as Ronan. The young lady can do about any accent you want astonishingly well.

All horrible reasons imo. Especially after doing the Host.

You did complain that they cast an American actor to play a European character, but don't take my word for it:

And none of them pretended to be from some place they weren't. Berry wasn't speaking in a fake African accent and Johansen isn't speaking in a fake Russian accent, unless I'm forgetting something. Peter Evans is not going to be able to pull off being Easter European because, well, he ISN'T.

And I didn't say it didn't matter if Wolverine wasn't from Canada, it doesn't matter if the actor playing him is from Canada. You're straw-manning what I'm saying. Quicksilver's character is supposed to be from Europe, that is an essential part of his backstory and make-up. Without that he is not Pietro Maximoff. Hugh Jackman does not have to be from Canada to play a Canadian, especially since he is british. BUT, I'd like for an Eastern European to be played by an Eastern European and not an American. That said, according to SHH Marvel are actually going more British for the characters, which I'm also fine with, as long as they are foreign and from a small village.

What does that have to do with anything we were talking about here?

My point there was that it was clear he would not be Eastern European (ie foreign) in the first place because he was American. Completely different from the situation here, where they're having the twins be British.

You think Hugh Jackman is British?

In case you still don't understand what I'm saying BenReilly, here is another of my quotes from that thread.

This works vice versa as well. A white American, especially one like Elizabeth with green eyes and blond hair, can pull off being British with a simple accent change. You can't do that with Eastern Europeans and Americans.

That is a rather large typo.

Anyway, I do wonder what Ronan passing on the roll does to it. They could of pretty much made her from anywhere with her abilities with accents and those eyes.
