After Saoirse Ronan passed...
Bleeding Cool reports that Saoirse Ronan has passed on the role of Wanda Maximoff (aka The Scarlet Witch) in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. She had been considered Joss Whedon's top choice for the role.
Now Whedon and Marvel are looking at Elizabeth Olsen for the role. As previously reported, the Scarlet Witch can't be revealed as Magneto's daughter or a mutant, but everything else can be used. Olsen would need to have a "European" accent for the role.
Production on the film will likely begin in the first few weeks of 2014. Olsen can next be seen in Kill Your Darlings, Therese, Oldboy and Godzilla.
