Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will have a role in Marvel’s Avengers sequel Age of Ultron. However, the actor who has played Nick Fury in the Marvel films did not say what role she will have.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Jackson said that shooting Age of Ultron should begin in March. “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.”
Jackson, who made a cameo appearance in this week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, said that the role of Fury is not that hard. “I’m still playing the same guy, it’s the same process,” Jackson told the WSJ. “I just show up and they turn the cameras on and we do it.”
Olsen was first linked to Age of Ultron this summer and it was later reported that she was at the negotiation stage. It is rumored that she will play the Scarlet Witch, who has not appeared in any film yet.
It will be another big role for Olsen, who has been an indie darling with performances in movies like Martha Marcy May Marlene. She also stars in next year’s Godzilla reboot.
Spader officially joined the film in August and recently said that he has already spoken with writer/director Joss Whedon about the role of Ultron.
Age of Ultron hits theaters in May 2015.
