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?
