Elizabeth Olsen Joins ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’

It has long been rumored that the youngest Olsen sister is joining the Marvel universe, but Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will play the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Jackson said of the upcoming sequel: “I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year. ”I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

The Scarlet Witch is, traditionally, a member of The Avengers. But who knows what Joss Whedon has planned for the film version. We’re just glad they’re getting more women in the Marvel universe.
