Elizabeth Olsen confirms she will play Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron

11.11.2013

After months of rumors, we finally have the last piece of the casting puzzle as Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed she will appear as Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. This news comes a week after Aaron Taylor-Johnson closed his deal to play Quicksilver in the film. The two will join James Spader as Ultron as the three new cast-members for Disney and Marvel's mega-sequel.

In an interview with MTV, Olsen let slip the news that she will be playing Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch.

"We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister," she said. "It's also fun because even though in 'Godzilla' we play husband and wife, we don't have a lot of scenes together. I just love him. 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."

THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON has a huge cast already with the returning Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johannson, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson. It remains to be seen if any of the new supporting cast from THOR: THE DARK WORLD or CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will also appear in THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, but I would say at the very least we may see Anthony Mackie as Falcon, assuming his recent DWI doesn't impact his relationship with Disney.

The cast has come together with a basic plot about Ultron that should make for quite the summer spectacle when THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON kicks off a busy summer movie season on May 1, 2015.

May 1 is my b'day and when Avengers comes along in 2015...I'll be 39...going on 9 :o) Incidentally, given the cast of this movie...compared to say Batman and Superman, I'm surprised there isn't more reaction to how over crowded this movie will be - Affleck being Batman clearly has more people on edge and thus most news associated with that movie gets treated far more harshly.

Thought Whedon blended all the characters perfectly in The Avengers and have faith he'll deliver once again in the sequel.

Nice!

I really like Olsen. She's done some great work in the past few years, and I've been expecting to see her do some things since she's moved into the mainstream. I'm sure her performance will be great. I'm just hoping they don't get too creative with her outfit... I'd love to see her in that one.

I often see Jeremy Renner's name attached to the seqeul, but is that confirmed? He stated he was unhappy with the way his character was treated in the first movie, and by adding Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver to the story, I doubt he'll get more screen time the second turn around. He's the only major cast member from the first Avengers not to appear in a phase 2 film or Agents of SHIELD cameo (unless he has one in Capt 2 or GotG). I have a feeling he won't be returning.

She's not one of the twins. She's their younger sister, three years apart.

Wait, what? Is this a joke?
Edit: Ok, nevermind. Read it wrong.
