The rumor mill has its eyes set on Elizabeth Olsen as the role of Scarlett Witch in Joss Whedon’s THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. The plot is still being kept under wraps but Whedon himself did let slip that Quicksilver and the Scarlett Witch would figure prominently.
I don’t see the immediate excitement for this casting choice, but then again she’s a good actress and movies should have good actresses in them. It’s pretty much that simple.
Olsen was great in “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and I hear she rocks in “Kill Your Darlings.” We’ll see her next in Spike Lee’s “Oldboy.”
She is repped by Gersh.
