Olivia Munn to Play an Avenger?

image

Olivia Munn is definitely in the upcoming Iron Man sequel, but exactly who she'll be playing suddenly got a lot more interesting.

While we're talking about Marvel themed cameos, there's a chance that G4 presenter Olivia Munn's cameo in Iron Man 2 might be more than just a cameo.

At the moment, it's believed that Munn will be playing Russian superspy Iron Maiden, a long time enemy of the Black Widow - who will be played by Scarlett Johansson - but according to Hollywood spies, she will actually be playing Wanda Maximoff, better known as the Scarlet Witch, Magneto's daughter and long-standing member of the Avengers.

With an Avengers movie in the pipeline, there's definite potential for someone to play the Scarlet Witch, but it seems like a supreme act of fan service to cast someone like Munn in the role. Munn does have some acting experience however, so maybe it's not quite as ridiculous as it sounds.

Seems odd to me to suddenly try to blend in the X-men franchise, since last time I checked, Marvel had sold the rights to those movies to a different studio or something like that.

Could cause a conflict if she's supposed to be in the X-men Origins: Magneto movie.

Sounds interesting. We shall wait and see. Oh and who is she?

Host of Attack of the show...

But why, her?

It will cause more people to see the movie since she's in it.

She's pretty hot. She'll do a good job I'm sure.

Uggggggggggggh, gods.

Because some people find her hot and she has "acting experience"

Yeah... Why Olivia Munn?
I mean I love AOTS! Olivia and Kevin's antics on the show are great.
But Olivia as a serious actress?
Sure she fits the part physically, but there are probably thousands of others that could.
Also this character (Scarlet Witch) deserves a serious actress (See 'House of M').

EDIT: She's actually listed on IMDb as Iron Maiden

I'm not so sure myself. I think that it may work, but I've seen Olivia Munn on G4 and I just can't picture her as a superhero in any way.

I never really liked Attack of the Show, I've stopped watching G4 altogether since it has long ago forgotten and abandoned video games as the primary subject, but that's not why we're here. Olivia Munn... yeah someone dump her down a pit some where so we can get someone decent to do the part she's speculated to do.

Well, shit. I was hoping Wanda would be a hot redhead. I detest this retard.

ugghh, can't stand this woman. After she butchered the Star Wars Spectacular at Comic Con last year, she just pisses me off.

EH. I was iffy about this movie since they announced Scarlett J...

Now, well...I actually like Olivia or the rare moment that I watch AOTS. So...I'll give her a chance. We won't know until we see it.

Im down, she rather hot

but Scarlet Witch? I never liked those her or her brother as characters in the series. She was alright some time because she had some semblance of a backbone, but her brother was just a little whinny bitch.

(at least that is what I remember from the Ultimate Avengers I read several years ago.)

Don't worry she wont be in the movie much...I hope.

I get the feeling that Iron Man 2 is getting too much crammed into it because Marvel feel that being as popular as it is they can get people interested into other projects such as the Avengers film. The film might suffer some shortcomings.

Scarlett witch needs a redhead,Munn should play as Ultimate Wasp who was half-asian like her since they went with Ultimate Fury who is Samuel L Jackson.

Ooo Miss Munn, is this why you've been missing from Attack of the Show! several times during the last year?

Can we get her co-host Kevin in something as well? That sexy Portuguese beast should get some more face time. (I'm creepy, I know.)

call me Dante and send me to the inferno. I'll be damned

my pants just got tight

Isnt Scarlet Witch one of the bad guys? Also, if it is the Ultimate version of her then will they portray her relationship with

Scarlett witch doesn't really make sense. I really don't see any of the newer marvel movies ever doing an x-men film merge. It just...no. Iron Maiden sounds about right.

Maibus:

I miss the old G4 soooo much. I very rarely watch it now.

Um...Hi.

Why do you have a picture of Kristin Kreuk?

Eh, I don't really like her, so it's not like I'm going to buy a ticket just because she's in it or anything

That will depend on whether or not Scarlet Witch was among the list of characters to be sold to Fox. We'll just have to wait and see how it all comes out in the end.

I think Marvel Studios should focus more on getting the Avengers film done right and worry about fanservice later.

That's only in the Ultimate Universe.

I just don't see the point. If Wanda is involved in this big Avengers project, they're going to have to rewrite her, unless Marvel can wrest the rights to Magneto away from Fox. The resulting backlash will completely outweigh any "Neat! Scarlet Witch!" factor.
Did they learn nothing from Dudepeel? Between this, the people they're talking about for Cap, and the loss of BRIAN BLESSED as Odin, I'm starting to lose my childlike optimism here.

Meh, I'll see it anyway.

No, no, no no no no no!!!

I hate her on Attack of the Show and I don't want her in any new Marvel movies.

I think it's more likely that she's playing Iron Maiden. Scarlet Witch belongs in the X-Men universe, which belongs the 20th Century Fox, so there's no chance of her appearing in any of Marvel's independent movies. Unless, of course, Fox is willing to share, but we all know that'll never happen...

The movies have taken quite a few other elements from the Ultimate Universe, though (Tony Stark's identity being public basically from the start, Nick Fury being heavily based on Ultimate Nick Fury...).

Something tells me incest won't be something they take.
