Hailee Steinfeld Possibly as Petra:

They keep going for the big names route, not too sure I like it.

P.S. Hello everyone :)

Have you seen her performance in TRUE GRIT? That should speak for itself. I'm over the moon with this news!

Welcome to Pweb!

You're great at this newshound business.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Or at least at this newbie business. Good way to get into our good graces.

Of course, a lot of us around here are finding it a little hard to accept that this movie might finally be happening.

I still don't believe it. And if it is happening, the world is just going to end before it's released. That's how the EG movie goes.


Just to clarify--you are the awesome boss-lady over at Ender's Ansible, right? I'm Shannon, by the way, one of the ones attempting to get Pweb back to having content in addition to our wonderful forum.

I've alway imagined Petra with a little darker skin tone, but I saw True Grit, so i Dont mind:)

Yes, that's me! :wave:

Craig: Nope, haven't seen True Grit yet... that's the first thing I'm doing after finals... ok second thing after sleep! I haven't heard a single negative thing about her so I'm hopeful.

spanish_rockette: I too imagined her darker in skintone, but I don't mind really.

Well thanks for the Limeaid!

Now that finals are over I'm going to watch our potential Petra in True Grit. Like now, like really right now. I'll let you know how I like it.

I've never seen nor heard of Hailee Steinfeld in my life, but a quick search on Google Images shows that she's exactly as I'd imagined Petra. :thumbs: I'm trying not to get excited. I shall not get excited.
We can shed our skins and swim into the darkened void beyond
We will dance among the world that orbit stars that aren't our sun
All the oxygen that trapped us in a carbon spider's web
Solar winds are whispering, you may hear the sirens of the dead.

Steinfeld is a phenomenal actor, but for the past 8 months I've envisioning Maisie Williams as Arya

I feel like they should switch the actor playing Petra with the actor playing Valentine. It seems more fitting to me.

That's what I thought too!

I disagree, I think she'll make a great Petra. This is the best casting move so far imo.

I'm not sure about Breslin as Val, but I am all kinds of on board with the Petra casting.

Now that I think about it, I do like Petra's actor, but it's Valentine's that I'm uneasy about.
