Rumor: Olivia Munn to Play Scarlet Witch in Iron Man 2?

Fanboyweb.com reports that G4 personality Olivia Munn‘s role in Iron Man 2, and possibly the upcoming Avengers movie, is that of the Scarlet Witch.

To quote: “Today our spy’s over on the set of  Marvel’s movie, “Thor”, has revealed to us here at FanboyWEB that  Olivia Munns will be playing the Scarlet Witch in “Iron Man 2”!”

Just… throw the [sic]s on anywhere.  You almost can’t miss.

Newsarama, however, is skeptical:  

They point out that Scarlet Witch is a mutant, and therefore still under the control of 20th Century Fox, who brought us the X-Men movies.  However, Munn is listed on IMDB as playing the character of Iron Maiden, or Melina Vostokoff, a Russian supervillain and even more obscure character than Scarlet Witch.  It’s even more plausible when you consider that Mickey Rourke‘s Whiplash is also Russian.

Perhaps we will know for sure in a future trailer.
