  1. Aaron Taylor-Johnson was running the risk of being type-cast as Kick-Ass. Now he’s running the risk of being type-cast as an “also-ran” superhero (get it?). Not mentioning Elizabeth Olsen’s twin or her start in “Full House” suggests that Marvel is pushing Scarlet Witch in a new direction as well.

    Thankfully, though, Marvel had sense enough not to cast Ryan Reynolds as either Avenger. With that, I am entering into the “wait-until-the-movie-comes-out cone of silence.”

    A nit on my part, but shouldn’t it be “Scarlette” Witch? As you have brun, brunette, blond, and blonde.

  2. Nope, the scarlet doesn’t refer to her her color ;)

  3. And scarlet is a color. It’s more like saying “The Yellow/Red/Pink/Blue witch”

    Elizabeth Olsen wasn’t in Full House. That was Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen

    Scarlet the color is her motif. I always thought that it referred to her hair color as well.

    My bad. Trying to be cute and clever while being cussed out at work. Calgon, take me away!

  6. They’re both good actors, and I doubt they’ll have major roles in the story so I’m content with them I suppose. Although I was hoping they would try and cast more of a not-so-lily-white pair as the twins, more reflective of their roma heritage.
