While Scarlet Witch’s speedster brother, Quicksilver, will most likely be played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson of Kick-Ass fame, there hasn’t been much news on who will be playing Scarlet Witch. Early reports saw that Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) was up for the role, although now sources are saying that she has turned the role down.

Now it looks like the role is being offered to Elizabeth Olsen, sister of the Olsen Twins. While she’s only had about a dozen acting jobs her career looks like it’s about to explode. She will be playing Marie in Spike Lee’s upcoming Oldboy remake, as well as a starring role in director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla alongside Taylor-Johnson and Bryan Cranston.

No matter how powerful Scarlet Witch is, she’ll never be able to undo the fact that her sisters made the best song ever recorded about the best food in the world.
