Eh I don't like the idea of Olsen as wanda. She's too waify. I'm sure marvel can do better.

Olsen probably has a part in the marvel u eventually but not as wanda

I don't think I would go as far to say its 8/10 times true. Bleeding Cool's record is just as spotty, if not more so, than Comic Book Movie's.

Could they be considering their options now, and adding Elisabeth Olsen to the mix? Very possibly. But did Saoirse just straight up pass? IDK. I think that's a bit doubtful. Plus, anyone signing up for these films would know damn well by now that it would be a multi film comittment from what we've arleady seen so far. So I don't think that would be the reason, despite being the most obvious conclusion to jump to.

Plus earlier reports say that they were going to be auditioning multiple actresses for the role. Not they they outright say it, but BC kinda makes it seemed like they offered it to Saoirse with no one else in mind.

And let us not forget SHH's very own report that said:

Quote:
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.
Yes, Saoirse is Irish, but the point still stand that they WOULDN'T be casting from a pool of non english/european actors.


Could that have changed? Yes. Could I be wrong? Yes. But this all just seems a little fishy to me.

All of these sites are reporting rumors, and sometimes reporting them as facts. SHH said that Marvel is looking exclusively at British actors to play the twins, but that could have either been untrue or it might have changed since the posted it.


Another factor is that the same casting director, Sarah Finn, is working on AoU and Godzilla. Both Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are in Godzilla, so Finn might simply like both actors and want to use them in AoU.

That is what others have stated..they didn't want to be locked into a 6 picture deal etc. But Avengers is now a surefire hit, there should be no concern, unless she just does not want to be attached to a 6 picture deal.

I've rarely seen BC be wrong and when they are technically "wrong" about something there was always truth to it. They're far more reliable than CBM and they're not one of those sites that regularly rumor monger. They only report on rumors they are at least 95% sure about. In this case I wouldn't even call this a "rumor" because Marvel talking to actors is one of the easier bits of info to find out.

She did the Host.... How the hell do you pass on the Avengers after doing the Host?!?!

I don't think I have ever been this disappointed about an actress before. She has done some poor films recently after doing quite well. I just don't get it. This was perfect casting. The perfect look and the great skill to go with it. Horrible decision making if true.

On Arrested Development. It was done as a joke.

If it's true that Ronan passed on AoU, it could be for a variety of reasons. She might have a scheduling conflict, for one thing. Or her agent could be giving her awful advice. Maybe she's afraid of losing her indie street cred. Someone on another forum claims that Ronan wants to take only lead roles, but I don't know if there's any truth to that.

Or Ronan doesn't want to be locked into a multi-picture deal, which could prevent her from taking other roles. Olsen is a great young actress and would be an acceptable choice for Wanda. I wonder if it is mere coincidence that she and Aaron Johnson are co-starring together in Godzilla, or if maybe he suggested her.

It could be that if they really did lock in Aaron that theyll use their "romantic" chemistry" as a basis for sibling chemistry in TA. If they get along well in Godzilla that is.

It would be funny if she gets it seeing as Aaron Taylor Johnson is pretty much all but signed for the part of Pietro.

Going from two lovers in Godzilla to siblings in AoU. Kinky stuff right there.

I'm not understanding this dramatic backlash against Olsen. She's a beautiful actress who I personally think captures the Wanda's look more accurately than Ronan did. Plus in terms of figure neither of them exactly looked like Wanda either so I don't see how some can complain about Olsen's body type yet not about Ronan. Seems hypocritical to me.

I really like Olsen so I'd be really happy to see her get the role.

Actually, if you read the SHH article in full, they specifically state that they are casting British/UK actors, not simply having the characters be british.

Also, the earlier reports I mentioned that said multiple actresses were being considered stated that Whedon would in fact be auditioning them.

But as you said that could be rumor.

BTW, Ronan did make another statement, on July 17th, flat out denying the Scarlet Witch rumors.

This was in stark contrast to her enthusiastic response from May, saying she'd love to do it. Though, the response was a short one, and did feel like one of typical swerves people give when they are up for a role or are interested,

So IDK, maybe the rumors are true and she ultimately passed. But I'm very curious as what possibly soured her on the project.

I wanna be clear, I'm not against Olsen for the role. But its a bit like if reports came out that Andrew Garfield was being courted for Spider-Man in Avengers 3, but then we got Tobey.

It's just not the same.
