Scarlet Witch Actress Named?

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is still two years away, yet fans are still clamoring for any news that they can get. While the studio is refusing to confirm it, Samuel L. Jackson seemingly let it slip who the actress playing Scarlet Witch would be. And the lucky lady is? Elizabeth Olsen!


Ever heard of her? Wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t. She received loads of critical acclaim for her role in “Martha Marcy May Marlene”. Yet she is currently about to see tons of her. She will be co-staring in this year’s “Kill Your Darlings” and “Oldboy”. Next year she will be in the “Godzilla” reboot. Being cast in The Avengers sequel is quite the proverbial “cherry on top” of her recent momentum surge. From what I have seen of her work I am really happy with this casting choice. I like bringing someone in with good acting credentials but still being a fresh face to the public for the most part.  Let’s all pray that the studio gives us confirmation on this soon and that Sam Jackson wasn’t just mistaken.
