Elizabeth Olsen appears to have been confirmed as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel star Samuel L Jackson was speaking to The Wall Street Journal about the Avengers sequel, when he stated that Olsen – who has long been linked to play Scarlet Witch – is on board:
“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 Olsen.
“But I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”
Robert Downey Jr is thus far the only confirmed name to return for the sequel, though the remaining cast members are expected to reprise their roles. Avengers: Age of Ultron will release on August 1st, 2015.
