After months and months of speculations, we can now finally breathe a sigh of relief as Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister of the famed Olsen twins, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen has confirmed her role for the Avengers: Age of Ultron as the Scarlet Witch!
The Scarlet Witch for those of us who aren’t that familiar with the Marvel Universe is the daughter of Magneto who has the ability to cast hexes, create force fields and just plain blowing stuff up.
Apart from that, Elizabeth also stated that she was really excited to reunite with Aron Taylor Johnson who by the way has also been confirmed as Quick Silver for the Avengers: Age of Ultron as well. Olsen will be playing Quick Silver’s sister in the movie. Elizabeth is also playing roles with Johnson in the rebooted version of the movie, Godzilla!
Elizabeth also expressed about how excited she was working with Joss Whedon, director of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“He’s very smart. He’s too smart. He might be too smart,” she said of the director. She also stated that Joss was just down right amazing.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theatres on May 1st 2015.
