Saoirse Ronan Passes on 'Scarlet Witch'; Marvel Looking at Elizabeth Olsen

Seems that The Host's Saoirse Ronan passed on 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

A few months back director Joss Whedon announced he will be introducing The Maximoff Twins to his Avengers universe in his sequel 'The Age of Ultron'. Saoirse Ronan was Whedon's and Marvel's top choice as Scarlet Witch at the time. But now according to BleedingCool's sources the actress has passed to play the Marvel super-heroine and the company has moved on to Elizabeth Olsen.

Elizabeth Olsen is the youngest of the Olsen children and is an up and coming movie star. She will next be seen as the love interest in the 2014 remake of Godzilla along-side Kick-Ass 2 star Aaron Taylor-Johnson. One has to wonder....Did Whedon and Marvel get an exclsuive look at Godzilla to see Johnsons and Olsens on-screen chemistry?

She will need to gain a European accent (Most likely British) if she is casted but shouldn't be to hard. Jaimie Alexander picked one up for the Thor films.

Oddly enough Aaron Taylor-Johnson has met with Marvel and Whedon to play Scarlet Witch's brother Quicksilver. So can we say awkward if they both are cast? But hey we all know the Ultimates arc where Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have a weird love relationship anyway....
