Wanda Maximoff is a beloved and popular character in the MCU, and for every renowned role, the competition is no less intense during auditions. According to past reports, it’s known that Joss Whedon, director of Age of Ultron, initially eyed Saoirse Ronan for the role of the Scarlet Witch. In an interview with The Mary Sue, the Little Women star displayed interest in being cast in Whedon’s movies. However, she didn’t take on the role due to unknown reasons. Other actresses like Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) and Sasha Pieterse-Sheaffer (The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl) were also considered but didn’t end up getting the role.

Olsen was finalized for the role alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver. They played the Maximoff siblings. Throughout the Marvel films, Wanda demonstrated emotional fragility, power, complexity, and the ability to stand for what she thinks is right. But it’s fair to say that Olsen always understood the assignment when it came to portraying a superhero or a villain. Once she revealed that she loves playing the Scarlet Witch character because of how she lives in shades of grey (via Gamerant).
