Best known for: "Resident Evil," "The Fifth Element"
Why: The underrated Jovovich could easily handle the action, it's her personality that could help mold the character. Wanda Maximoff has always been a bit "off" in the comic books (she married a robot, incarnated her children, etc.) and Jovovich is one actress who has always had an edge of craziness around her. And the Ukranian native's Eastern European background fits in perfectly with Wanda's origins.
Why not: At 37, Jovovich may be significantly older than Whedon and Marvel want to go with the character. And if they dump Wanda and Peitro's European ancestry, there is no need to go in Jovovich's direction.
