With an already star-studded cast, Avengers: Age of Ultron is welcoming in Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch in the upcoming blockbuster. As if James Spader being cast as Ultron wasn't enough. Olsen is known for for her harrowing performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene and the less impressive Silent House (although she was great in it) and now joins the ranks of Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Downey Jr. in what's being rumored to be the biggest movie of the decade.
Jackson told The Wall Street Journal, "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, but I don't know what she's doing, if she's on the inside or the outside. I haven't seen a script." The confirmation is there, whether or not she'll actually be playing Scarlet Witch is still up for speculation.
According to The Guardian, Scarlet Witch, who has physics-altering powers and can cast magic, first appeared in marvel comics in 1964.
What do you think, is Elizabeth Olsen a fitting pick for Scarlet Witch, or should they have chosen someone else?
