Ever since Joss Whedon confirmed that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be joining the team for The Avengers 2 , the rumour mill has been alive with speculation as to who might take the two parts.
The plot thickened somewhat this morning, with the announcement that Evan Peters has signed on to play Quicksilver in X-Men: Days Of Future Past , while reports are suggesting that Saoirse Ronan is on Whedon’s hit-list for Avengers 2 .
Always a straight-talking character, Ronan has given her take on said rumours, and from the sounds of it, she’d be only too happy to take on the role.
"I have heard about it and yes, I would,” said Ronan when asked whether she would like to join the Avengers cast. “Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films.”
“I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.”
Directed by Whedon and (hopefully) co-starring the bulk of the original cast, contract negotiations permitting, The Avengers 2 will open in the UK on 1 May 2015.
