Samuel L. Jackson may have confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will be in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but the actress herself isn’t prepared to say anything about it yet. She dodged the question when Kelly Ripa asked her about the film on Live with Kelly & Michael Friday morning.
“Samuel Jackson can say what he likes,” Olsen said with a smile, reports E! News.
“OK. I think that means, yes,” Ripa replied. She then asked if she would be seeing Olsen at the New York Comic Con this weekend.
“Actually, my brother works for a comic book, so you might. Because I might be visiting his booth,” she replied.
Olsen was supposed to be on the show to talk about her role in the new off-Broadway production of Romeo & Juliet. She also appears in Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy and she’s set to appear in next year’s Godzilla reboot.
Earlier this month, Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel films, told the Wall Street Journal that they “added” Olsen, but admitted, “...I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.” It’s rumored that she will play the Scarlet Witch, an Avengers hero who has yet to appear in the films.
