Samuel L. Jackson Confirms That Elizabeth Olsen Will Play The Scarlet Witch In 'The Avengers: Age Of Ultron'

For a long time it was rumored that Saoirse Ronan would be playing the part of the Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron. But in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Samuel L. Jackson confirmed that the lovely Elizabeth Olsen will be donning the red bustier instead. He said:

“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.”

This is great news because Olsen is not only talented, she’s luminous in an off-beat way. I’m not sure how, exactly, that luminosity will fit in the aforementioned red bustier, but I’m excited to find out.
