It’s about damn time.
Even though it’s been a minute (and by a minute, I mean a long ass time) since I last posted about Elizabeth Olsen being in talks for the coveted Scarlet Witch role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still have yet to receive an official confirmation (that goes for her onscreen brother, Quicksilver aka Aaron Taylor-Johnson [most likely]).
So, since Marvel/Disney have yet to say anything on the matter, it would appear that Nick Fury aka Samuel L. Motherf*cking Jackson is doing their dirty work for them:
“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.”
Well there you go.
Previously, Olsen played coy when asked about the aforementioned role at the Toronto Film Festival last month:
“I’ve been rumored about lots of things [so] I don’t know… To be part of [The Avengers]? Sure. I grew up loving comic books and sci-fi… I think those movies are great. I would love to do something like that.”
Chances are, she and and Taylor-Johnson have been cast already. I mean, 2014 is almost upon us, so I’d actually be quite shocked if they haven’t been cast yet.
But as always, we’ll update you when we know more.
