Elizabeth Olsen Calls Prep Work for Scarlet Witch ‘So Much Fun’

by     Posted 254 days ago


Even though Joss Whedon dubbed Saoirse Ronan (Hanna) his Scarlet Witch “prototype” back in May, news surfaced in August that he had moved on to Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) for the role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Despite the fact that there were reports that Olsen was in final negotiations for the part, Marvel has yet to confirm her casting.  However, just the other month, Olsen’s Oldboy co-star, Samuel L. Jackson, came right out and said, “… we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch].”  Although everything points to Olsen having snagged the part of Wanda Maximoff, one half of the brother-sister duo, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, Marvel still hasn’t made it official.

While talking to the actress for her November 27th release, Oldboy, Collider got the chance to add yet another bullet point to the list of items suggesting Olsen did indeed get the part. Continued after the jump.

The twin brother-sister superheroes Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch have been likely contenders to join The Avengers 2 since April when Joss Whedon teased, “I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.”  Kevin Feige followed that even though the characters fall into a legal grey area (The characters are mutants, Magneto is their father, and Fox could have possession since they own X-Men), they would be available.  Today, Whedon has confirmed that the characters will be in The Avengers 2.
