    I'm not gay, but I have to question a person's taste who thinks this

    looks better than this

    And that's hardly even his best picture. He looks even more swag with facial hair...which it seems like Peters can't even grow.

    He looks perfect for Quicksilver. If they just have him look like that with platinum blond hair then he looks like the perfect young Quicksilver.

    I agree! As I said they might be evenly matched when it comes to acting but look at the diffrence. Thx for the pics Dentipedia! (Yes I have started to call you that) :)

    This Peters guy always looks goofy to me in the pictures I've seen so far.

    I'm cool with that.:storm

    And not only that, look at this. Yes I can see this working. They even have the same mouth. Only problem is Saoirse has a scottish accent.

    Have you heard Jackman talk? Some actors don´t even give us a hint they have a accent.

    Yeah she is perfect. Can she act good enough? Is she on the same or at least almost on the same level as Aaron?

    I think the twins are supposed to be English per the SHH report, so since they come from the same place their accents should be similar. It would be weird to have twins with one having a northern British accent and the other a Scottish accent. So I hope (if Ronan is ultimately cast) she can pull off an English accent.

    As for her acting...she's better than Aaron imo. She was the youngest actress ever to be nominated for an Academy Award.

    She doesn't really look like Wasp to me at all. She looks far more elegant than a Janet-type character...which is exactly how Wanda should be.

    Yeah, Ronan's a better actor than Johnson, but I don't see how Ronan is, in any way, similar to Wanda, other than them both being women. Anyway, it's already been confirmed that she's NOT up for the role. And she's Irish, not Scottish.

    Lol. Not waspy as in the Wasp. Waspy as in white anglo saxon protestant opposed to having darker features.

    Her not being in talks at that time and her never being up for the role are two different things. The only name we've heard in connection to Wanda from a credible source is her's, and she said she'd be down for it. It's just when she was asked again she said she thought it was just internet stuff because she wasn't in actual talks for the role at that point. It seems like they're focusing on casting one at a time, since Quicksilver is all we're hearing about.

    As for her being nothing like Wanda...there's a reason Joss prototyped Wanda after Ronan (as reportde by SHH). Deep blue eyes, and elegant young beauty. If I had to cast a 19-20 year old Wanda Saoirse would be on my list.

    Yes I just realized I kept calling her Scottish for some reason. I think because I've been watching too much Tennant Doctor Who.

    Oh lol. Well, the twins are going to be British in this...so there you go.

    There was (supposedly) a source, not necessarily a credible source, and the British thing was just conjecture on the part of the article's author, because Ronan was from the UK. If they were looking at Ronan, they would have contacted her already, and she wouldn't have shut down that rumour so quickly.

    As for her looks, Wanda has had green eyes since '97 (though, they're colouring it brown now). They were blue prior to that, but just about everybody had blue eyes then because it was easier for the colourists. I won't comment on "elegant beauty" because that's somewhat subjective.

    But regardless of how she appears in comics, we really shouldn't shrug off racebending. I realise there may be difficulty in finding a young Romani actors, but I hope they're at least looking at some darker toned actors. It's a bigger issue than just accuracy to source material.

    Uh, no. You may want to read the article again. It wasn't the author's conjecture, they stated as fact that they were looking for British actors.

    http://www.superherohype.com/news/a...els-direction-for-scarlet-witch-a-quicksilver

    Considering that they did end up in talks with a young British actor for Quicksilver, I think it's safe to say that the article wasn't BS and the source was legit. As for Ronan shooting it down, she did that before Joss had finished the script and they weren't really in talks with any actors. Even with Aaron there weren't reports of him being in talks/Marvel's first choice until after Joss said he had finished the script back in June or early July. There haven't been any interviews with her since then so it's impossible to know where it's standing at now. And like I said it seems like they're casting Quicksilver first and then movie on to Scarlet Witch considering we haven't heard anything about her.

    LOL I was being facetious mostly. But he does have more "swag" than Johnson IMO see American Horror Story the first season and maybe that's why I think he may look better. Arron I see as his Kick-Ass squeaky voiced character so I'm a bit jaded by their characters pre conceived notions also. Off camera yeah I agree on camera one is more charming than the other.

    Have you seen Johnson in Savages? Now that's what I call swag.

    I guess I would have to watch it. He comes off like a little brother to me though.

    I didn't say the article was complete BS, but I'm not going to trust it. Though I'll admit that I may have misread "Except something to note is that they're going "British" for the role rather than trying to have actors playing Eastern Europeans" as an assumption.

    Either way, I think you need to get over the idea having Ronan as Scarlet Witch already. SHH "heard word that" Ronan was a "prototype" (which is still a bit wtf??? to me), nothing about casting. Plus, don't you think Ronan's agent would have inquired about the role when the rumor came about, and that's why she shut it down? And why would Whedon be meeting with actresses, rather than just contacting Ronan directly, like they did Johnson?

    Sure but she's always been depicted as looking like she took after her mom and her brother like her dad. They looked distinctly different to each other in that respect.

    I'm not stuck on her being Wanda, you're the one who said it's already been confirmed she's not in the running...which isn't true and that's what I was responding to. She wasn't in talks at the time...because no one was. If her agent contacted Marvel about it, again, it would have been before they started looking at people because Joss wouldn't have been finished with the script. There has been no further follow up with Ronan on the state of things since then, since Joss has completed the script, and there has been no further word on other actresses being in the running for Wanda, which is why I brought up Saoirse, because she's the only actress that has been linked to Wanda by a credible source. So yeah, this is a non-thing.

    I must say that Aaron´s voice is not optimal for Pietro tho, what do you think?

    For some reason I can´t picture anyone else than Ronan for the role as SW now. She played a char in Host who´s name was Wanda, coincidence? Omg I think not! O::::

    I don't think they'll put him in red or gold.
