I've liked Olsen in the things I've seen her in. She's pretty and talented, I knew some comicbook franchise would snap her up. She's just lucky that it was the biggest comicbook franchise around.

The Hollywood Reporter just confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen is in "final talks" to play The Scarlet Witch.

And I gotta say, I'm damn happy about it.

Excellent job casting Wanda and Pietro on Marvel's part.

Now its time to see who will play Ultron.

There are have been many Eastern Europeans who have settled in the UK over the centuries. A British person called Pietro Maximoff wouldn't be that strange in real life.

Dame Helen Mirren is of Russian ancestry. Her real name is Helen Mironof.

Tim Roth's Abomination/Emil Blonsky in Incredible Hulk was a Russian born British Marine.

We probably won't get Ultron casting until after production has started.

Elizabeth Olsen is a win if they get her. She has a BRIGHT future ahead of her. She would perform very well in this role.

I'm putting Martha Marcy May Marlene and Liberal Arts on my queue ASAP, but from the little snippets of footage I've seen of Olsen and buzz I'm hearing about her, it looks like Marvel's made another casting coup.

She's very much an up-and-comer, much like JLaw before X-Men FC and Hunger Games.

I also find it kind of funny that she has a far more successful career than her older twin sisters. I didn't even realize she was related to them until a few weeks ago.

So I suppose they're going with Whizzer/Miss America angle as far as the twins' parentage is concerned?

I doubt it. I think they'll just keep them as orphans and not go into a lot of detail on who their real parents are.

Yep. Makes the most sense. They don't know where they come from.

Olsen is a great choice for Wanda. Marvel is locking her and Taylor-Johnson down in good time for them to do any training necessary before shooting begins. Now I'm interested to see concept art of the twins and their costumes, though we can't expect that for a while.

So, we have Ben Affleck playing Batman, and we may get Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Johnson playing the Maximoff twins, AND maybe Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon. So many unexpected but awesome casting choices, its mind-blowing.

I was hoping for someone who actually looked more...Eastern European, because, that's sort of what Wanda is. I can't pass any judgement on Olsen's acting, though, so I'll just have to trust the good things I hear about that.

This is why I can understand why they're going British, out of necessity, as I stated before. It's better than them just not making him foreign at all.

And there's a ton of difference between being from England and being from America. Like really, you don't understand the difference? Them just being from a different place and country in itself is a big enough difference. I explained why that is important.
I know the differences, but I don’t think they’re pronounced enough for you to have vastly different worldviews or culture shock.

As for not being able to find Eastern Euro actors, what about actors of South American, Middle Eastern or Mediterranean decent? It can't be that hard to find non blond-white-chicks in Hollywood.

Strange and wonderful culture.
And to be perfectly honest, if for some reason, they chose to make the Maximoffs American gypsies, there's plenty of historical precedent. There's a lot of Romani communities around the Southeast, especially. Hell, Discovery Channel even has a couple of shows about them.
They're pretty well integrated in the US, aren't they? That's probably why no one really takes notice. Europe's not so tolerant, especially in places like Romania and Bulgaria.

You should watch Martha Marcy May Marlene. She should've won the Oscar.

I just hope we don't get an American trying to do a british accent. Not the old "fiddle dee dee fish and chips and chimny sweeping for you guv'nor" type trick!

Seriously, if they cast Olsen just make wanda American. Taylor Johnson can do a great American accent and we won't have a repeat of Anne hathaways accent in "one day"

So Elizabeth Olsen is in final negotiations for Scarlett Witch??

I'm kind of surprised. With filming only due end-feb next year, I didn't expect casting announcement for Scarlett Witch so soon.


I thought we will only hear any news about casting around the end of the year or early next year.

But then again, Aaron Johnson is pretty much a lockdown for QuickSilver role, so I guess it's just a matter of time before they move on to Wanda.


Elizabeth Olsen looks rather frail looking. She doesn't looks like she can deliver blows and punches.

Then again, Wanda isn't a physical fighter. She is all about spells and hexes. So I guess the actress playing her doesn't necessary have to look tough or strong.

I don't think it will be a huge issue, but anyone think it will be weird if Olsen and Johnson are love interests in Godziilla, and brother and sister in Avengers? Kind of creepy.

How do Eastern Europeans "look" exactly. I've known or met several and they all look very different from each other.
