Seems Joss Whedon Has Found His Scarlet Witch

Written in



Marvel has not made any kind of official statement but we will take the word of Nick Fury himself, Samuel L. Jackson, as confirmation. Jackson was asked about the giant sequel to The Avengers by The Wall Street Journal and had this to say:

“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.”

If you do not know Elizabeth Olsen, she is the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley and has not gone batsh** crazy yet, so that is a win. She can be seen in Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy this year and in the Godzilla reboot next year.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson from Kick-Ass is in talks to take the role of Scarlet Witch’s twin brother, Quicksilver.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron releases on May 1, 2015.
