Elizabeth Olsen Is Definitely, Certainly, For Sure And For Real Playing Scarlet Witch
First it was rumored, then Samuel L. Jackson said something about it, but it wasn’t fully nailed down until today that actress Elizabeth Olsen will for-sure be playing the Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The actress herself confirmed it to MTV in a press junket for the upcoming Oldboy remake.
Olsen said she’s pleased to be working with actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson again, who she also worked with in the new Godzilla film. Taylor-Johnson will play Quicksilver, the Scarlet Witch’s brother, in the movie.
“I just love him,” she said. “I love his family. I love his kids. I’m so excited… to actually work with each other. I think it’s going to be fun.”
Olsen also talked a bit about Avengers director Joss Whedon: “He’s very smart. He’s too smart. He might be too smart. Some people are too smart for their own good, but he’s amazing.”

Avengers: The Age of Ultron is set for release May 1, 2015.
