Still waiting on the official word but it appears that Elizabeth Olsen is in talks to star as the Scarlet Witch in the Avengers: Age of Ultron. Olsen was offered the role after The Host star Saoirse Ronan passed on the role of Wanda Maximoff aka The Scarlet Witch. 

If she officially takes on the role she will play the sister of Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor Johnson who will play Pietro Maximoff aka Quicksilver. 

Elizabeth Olsen can next been seen in Spike Lee’s remake of OLDBOY

With the Ben Affleck Batman casting new that has arrived, the official casting of the Scarlet Witch may wait until next week. 


Avengers: Age of Ultron arrives May 1st, 2015.

Interesting choice, they seem to really go for a young actress for that character, should be interesting.

In that Pic, She looks awesome!  Never seen her act, so we will see.

I wonder, if they are gonna go Ultimate route and make them freaky siblings?

The hottest and most talented Olsen girl, a great addition to this franchise!  From what I've seen of her she is a natural fit into the group of actors that Whedon has always worked with.  It's really too bad the studios can't get their egos out of the way long enough to see that there are mutual benefits to having some characters cross over between franchises, I'm of course referring to the fact that it looks like we will have 2 different actors playing Quicksilver in 2 different franchises existing at the same time.  All these creative and intelligent people in charge of these studios, you'd think they could figure it out for the fans who pay the bills.....shoot the lawyers already and make some history!

But lets be serious.  Marvel's Quicksilver will be the one true Maximoff.  The one that Fox is squeezing into the already bloated cast (just to try and beat marvel to the punch) will be a cheap knock off.

How can Jimmy Olsen be Scarlet Witch!?! This is all wrong! Hollywood sucks! Comic books suck!  Whedon is a a demi-god but this sucks! This is......

What? Oh, never mind.

I'll just go somewhere and join other nerds and complain about Ben Affleck 'cuz that sucks!!!....  :-)

Eldogg & Wish, that is still the question nobody ever seems to ask Whedon or Singer. Why are they casting two different actors for Quicksilver? Why aren't they working together on this? Is there some animosity between Disney and Fox?

I think there must be some outrage between Fox & Marvel/Disney.  They are not vocal about it, but its got to be eating at Marvel, that Fox has the rights to the X-Men & Fantastic Four and to see how Fox is treating those two Franchises. 

Yes it would be smart to loan out the characters so you could see Wolverine in a Capt America movie, but the Lawyers won't allow it.  So Sad.

Monkeyfoot, I bet that question has been asked and ignored, these guys know better than to comment on something that is likely neck deep in legal bullshit.  Still, it's a question that should be asked and answered, as majority investors in the movie business, we the fans have a right to know.

Fox is the issue.  They are dicks.  They have proven that time after time year after year.  The proof is in the pudding.

monkeyfoot 8/23/2013 12:03:40 PM

Dammit, I thought those were raisins in my pudding. Now I'm scared!
