Olsen is the Scarlet Witch?

OFFICIAL, well from Nick Fury anyway

Finally, the word has come down from on high that Elizabeth Olsen is the Scarlet Witch. She will join the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner in the Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Wait... maybe not. 

From “on high” may be a bit misleading . MSN.com got the news from Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the sequel, that Olsen joined the cast. Jackson said, I know we're shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. 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."

Marvel or Disney will probably release a statement over the weekend. 

Why the big delay on this news? We have the majority of our heroes and our villain cast. Why is this one part such a huge deal?

 Olsen is the Scarlet Witch? - Looks good to me! I just wish they did not f*ck up the original outfit for that new boring ass outfit they have now. It is SO GENERIC.

 That's like me asking for Famke to wear the Dark Phoenix costume from the comics. Just never happened. *sigh*

Well she's pretty and has a great body, but I have never seen a movie she's been in.  Can she act?

 almost, I hear you don't thinkI have seen her in a movie but that clearly don't mean she can't act if she got cast and' for MARVEL..

From Joss Whedon speaking to Nerdist-

“She might wear a headband or something that might echo it. The guys at Marvel, the conceptual artists, are phenomenal, and they are so good at taking the essence of what works and interpreting it for the actual human body, and when they paint something you can not only tell how it’s gonna work on a person, you can even tell what fabric it’ll be. They are very specific, very talented. So I’m excited to see the designs. Obviously we want to echo the look that people know, but there’s the classic look and the Ultimates look, but you have to do it in a way that will work. But it can’t be too old school… she can’t wear a leotard.”

 Zillaman - not sure if you're just a Marvel hater or what, but this is a Joss Whedon movie...If JW can get good performances out of Eliza Dushku, he can get good performances out of ANYBODY.

 Taking a wait and see attitude.  My initial reaction is she is too young looking.

Is that one of the Olsen twins?

lusiphur 10/7/2013 5:45:14 AM

 Dazzler - It's their younger sister, and IMO prettier, sister.

Eldogg42 10/7/2013 5:50:50 AM

Not a twin, but a younger sister... What? The olsen twins have a YOUNGER sister???? Who's not a baby?? I'm getting old!!!

The guy who's playing Quicksilver, is also young looking, so they seem to be the right age. so that will work.  Wonder what angle they will be going with?  Too young to be SHIELD agents like in the Ultimates.  And they can't use the mutant angle.  Can't wait for this!!!
