American actress Elizabeth Olsen has enjoyed a steady rise to Hollywood superstardom over the years and is about to become a household name around the entire planet, thanks to landing the role of Scarlet Witch in the Marvel movie sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Elizabeth is clearly excited about playing the role and she has admitted that she is still in shock at landing the role.
Olsen explained to Source TV, "I don’t really know. I’m still kind of shocked by it. My brother’s a big comic book guy, I subsequently love those types of stories. I love sci-fi, I was raised as the biggest fan of “Star Wars.” And so those movies are fun to make."
She added, "I’m obsessed with the “Iron Man” movies. And I met Joss [Whedon], I had no idea why and yeah! And it ends up being like the coolest [thing], I’m having so much fun just reading right now. It’s really awesome."
While we have known for some time now, that Elizabeth Olsen will play Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel only made the news official a few days ago, as well as confirming Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver. The Avengers: Age of Ultron will open on May 1, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
