Samuel L. Jackson confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Jackson spoke to The Wall Street Journal, Samuel L. Jackson confirmed that the lovely Elizabeth Olsen will be donning the red bustier instead.
Here is what Jackson had 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.”
Saoirse Ronan was thought to be playing the Scarlet Witch, but that is apparently not the case. Olsen is a great actress and I think she will be perfect for the role. One thing is for sure is that her role in the film will catapult her into a new stratosphere of stardom.
