The Best Possible Actress For the Scarlet Witch... Needs Talent!

With so many (frankly) bad choices being thrown around as to who could play Wanda "Scarlet Witch" Maximoff, it's time we ought to take a look at her character and what makes her tick. And moreover, who could best bring her to life on the big screen.

Editorial Opinion

Now, no offense to some of the people here, but I have seen some downright bogus, if not horrible, suggestions for Wanda "Scarlet Witch" Maximoff. From talentless flavor of the month "actresses," to models who've never even been in a single movie, I'm just plain bamboozled by some of the choices I've seen for Wanda. Come on people, don't you at least want the best possible actress to bring Wanda to life on the silver screen?

First off, Wanda is not a generic comic book chick. She's suffered a life full of hardships (orphaned twice, was a victim of prejudice, emotionally screwed around with, found out her real dad is a genocidal maniac, lost her first and second families, and finally was driven insane), and it shows in her character. Nevertheless, she's also warm, intelligent and caring. She's also a very important character in the Marvel Universe as a whole - the daughter of Magneto, twin sister of Quicksilver, a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, the X-Men and the Avengers, the one who brought about the Avengers: Disassembled, House of M and Decimation events, and so many other things. It is admittedly frustrating to see the studios continuing to neglect including her and Pietro in the films.

But for crying out loud people, Megan Fox as Wanda? She's yet to really impress moviegoers as a serious actress; another odd choice includes Olivia Munn, who isn't even an actress. Not to mention Wanda's ethnicity - she's European (raised in Romania and Magneto lived in Nazi-occupied Europe), so we should at least get an actress with European-looking features, or better yet, an actual European actress!

When I looked at Wanda, I knew who I wanted to play her.

Eva Green, a French actress best known for her roles as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale and Serafina Pekkala in The Golden Compass. In fact, her performance in the latter really reminded me of Wanda.










What's not to like? She's beautiful (although it does take some getting used to her features), a great actress, and looks like Wanda on top of that. And the fact that she has an impressive set of assets befitting of a comic book chick.

Another choice I've seen is Anne Hathaway, and she would not be so bad. Unfortunately, her features don't remind me of Wanda - to me, they come across as too innocent, naïve and princess-like. As mentioned before, Wanda has endured a troubled life, and yet she continued to soldier on. Anne looks far too much like a happy, well-adjusted all-American girl to look like she could pull off a tortured yet strong soul like Scarlet Witch.

Don't take offense to my views here, I'm simply my personal opinion on the matter. Let's make love, not war, okay? ;)
