She may have lost more than just a glass slipper when it came to Disney's live-action remake of Cinderella, but that doesn't mean our own Saoirse Ronan has lost her charm. In fact, it looks as though the Carlow native could actually be headed to Marvel Studios to get in on the Avengers action.
Super Hero Hype says Saoirse's being eyed up by the studio for the role of Scarlet Witch in the upcoming sequel, which is currently in pre-production. Writer-director Joss Whedon has already hinted that the character (who is Magneto's biological daughter) and her twin brother Quicksilver will be appearing in the movie. Studio director Kevin Feige appeared to back him up, before warning that nothing's totally solid when it comes to the script just yet.
So, she's alreayd played one Wanda (in The Host), but now it looks like she could be playing another. Marvel apparently wants an actress around her age for Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff. And if you're wondering what this one can do, well, lets just say her powers include probability manipulation, reality alteration, and wee bit of Chaos Magic.
Think our Saoirse's got it in her then?
