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.

Niiiiice! Can't wait to see what she brings to the table as Scarlet Witch.
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:42 AM
She's an awesome an actress get her a good dialect coach and were all good. Also since she's got a working relationship with Marvel's top choice for Quicksilver they should be able to portray brother and sister it more easily. Well I guess we'll only know that after Godzilla
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:43 AM
The biggest news is the fact theres an Olsen in an marvel movie and she can ACT!
RorMachine - 8/22/2013, 11:45 AM
I can't argue with this..great actress - check, gorgeous - check.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/22/2013, 11:45 AM
I forgot, but didn't Marvel say, in another article on here, that if she's to be casted (and it looks like she will) as SW she'd had to have a European accent? Just curious 'cause I know I read that somewhere.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/22/2013, 11:45 AM
@Hellsing - LoL, not only can she act, but she's gorgeous, too, I might add. ;)
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:47 AM
Seriously if a actor puts some effort in with a dialect coach accents aren't problem, and she seems the type who gives a shit about the roles she's playing.
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:47 AM
I didn't realize that I have to point out that she's [frick]ing beautiful I thought was well know fact, I mean [frick] just look at the girl.
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:48 AM
*well known
crashrendar - 8/22/2013, 11:49 AM
Damn. Thought idris would've been perfect for the role.
Hellsing - 8/22/2013, 11:49 AM
Idris is busy
charlie2094 - 8/22/2013, 11:52 AM
Not going to argue with that! Pretty great choice for the role.

Marvel casting is always good, perfect that she's already worked with Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who's all but confirmed as Quicksilver) as that could really help the brother-sister relationship work well

"I didn't realize that I have to point out that she's [frick]ing beautiful I thought was well know fact, I mean [frick] just look at the girl."

Yes, indeed she is.
crashrendar - 8/22/2013, 11:54 AM
I love how dc gets so much crap for an all white justice league , but an all white avengers is ok? If idris can be up for bond, batman, and lex why not scarlet witch??

I'm joking. Obviously. Think shell do fine.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/22/2013, 11:56 AM
@M79 - Maybe a 5 picture deal with Marvel. First one, of course, is A: AoU. Second and third would probably be supporting roles in whatever other Marvel film Marvel Studios develops/produces, and the last two may be cameo roles. But, hell, I may be wrong. She may get bigger roles than that. All in all, this girl's got quite the future for her.
MrCBM56 - 8/22/2013, 11:57 AM
Hell yeah! Her and Aaron Johnson will be awesome. Can't wait!
jlabatman - 8/22/2013, 11:57 AM
Damn Ror, no Olsengate satirical article on why she isn't hot enough to play Scarlet Witch? Disappointed!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/22/2013, 11:57 AM
I guess all we need is for Aaron to get in final talks for the role as QS, finalize it, and BOOM! We got the two mutant twins.
JordanKing - 8/22/2013, 11:59 AM
Okay. Never heard of her.. but okay.
3DWitchHunt - 8/22/2013, 12:01 PM
Cool
Edgy isnt gonna like this
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 8/22/2013, 12:05 PM
@jla - LMFAOOOOOO!!!!! Playing with fire, are we, bro? ;P
LordMushu - 8/22/2013, 12:08 PM
She's great. Good choice.
DurtyTalynt - 8/22/2013, 12:08 PM
Nope. To small
CharlesLord - 8/22/2013, 12:09 PM
nice choice. cant wait to see wat she brings to the role. Hope johnson signs up for QS.
CaptainKangarooPimp - 8/22/2013, 12:11 PM
Is no one else thinking about how she plays Aaron Taylor Johnston's girlfriend in Godzilla, and now she's going to play his sister? Thats a little awkward.
Papendicular - 8/22/2013, 12:14 PM
What i want to know is who is going to play the goddamn Batman already!!!!!!
JerBear - 8/22/2013, 12:15 PM
@CaptainKangarooPimp
For these particular characters... it's not that awkward. We're used to it.
DocDrop - 8/22/2013, 12:16 PM
Funny how people say "never heard of her" and so somehow that's her fault or she's going to suck. Wrong, that's your problem for not watching good indie movies. First of all, she's the Olsen Twins younger sister, heard of them haven't you? But more importantly, she was incredible in "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and will probably be amazing in "Oldboy" & "Avengers 2"!

Stop living under a rock...
SageMode - 8/22/2013, 12:21 PM
Not really familiar with her acting, but from what I hear, she has the chops to pull it off.

Cool deal
UltimateWarrior - 8/22/2013, 12:21 PM
Are her cans big enough?
TheLetter10 - 8/22/2013, 12:23 PM
She's actually the oldest Olson, iirc. She's got the chops for this and people keep saying she needs to do an accent... no she doesn't.
MercwithMouth - 8/22/2013, 12:24 PM
I think Elizabeth is a good choice for the role of Scarlett Witch. I love the facty they're not going with the biggest name, or biggest tits they could find. Acting is the important part. And her titties may be itty-bitty, but...DAMN...
DioFoRio - 8/22/2013, 12:25 PM
I was holding out for Sandy Duncan and that lazy eye of hers. But this chickeldoo.
ParisSun - 8/22/2013, 12:28 PM
Great, now will Aaron just sign already.

How do people feel about Olsen and ATJ being in two separate movies back to back?
DioFoRio - 8/22/2013, 12:30 PM
Question is how does ATJ's wife feel about it?
Dunejedi - 8/22/2013, 12:30 PM
Her face looks a little too SoCal for my tastes. I would prefer they got someone who looked somewhat European. Not suicidal, though.
GUNSMITH - 8/22/2013, 12:31 PM
THEY CANT BE THAT SMALL
subzero1077 - 8/22/2013, 12:34 PM
Can we ban Ineedrevelation? I think he's on his period again.
CherryBomb - 8/22/2013, 12:34 PM
Elizabeth is one of the greatest young actresses out there, they'll be very lucky to have her.

Saoirse Ronan looks more like she can be Aaron Johnson's sister but if they really couldn't get her then Liz is the next best choice.
MercwithMouth - 8/22/2013, 12:40 PM
She is 3 years younger than the twins...
