Elizabeth Olsen In Final Talks To Play 'The Scarlet Witch' In THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Following rumours that Marvel Studios were keen on her taking on the role, it has now been confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen is indeed in the "final stages" of signing a deal to play The Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's sequel to The Avengers. Read on for details!
While Bradley Cooper has seemingly just started discussing the possibility of voicing Rocket Racoon in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed another recent Marvel rumour; that Oldboy and Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen is being lined up to play The Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. While we recently heard that the studio were interested in the actress, the trade reveals that, "Sources familiar with the deals say that Olsen’s dealmaking is further along than Cooper’s, which is just beginning," and that "multiple sources" have confirmed that she's closing in on a deal to play the character in the highly anticipated sequel. Should she choose to sign on the dotted line (which now looks extremely likely) she will be reunited with her Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the British actor is said to be the frontrunner for the role of Quicksilver and talked passionately about the character at Comic-Con recently.
