Elizabeth Olsen will be joining the ranks of the Avengers as the Scarlet Witch… at least, according to Samuel L Jackson.

After revealing the addition of the Scarlet Witch in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ there’s been plenty of speculation as to who will eventually be cast in the role. But it looks as though Nick Fury has been busy as the Avengers Initiative continues to recruit… and the legendary Samuel L Jackson reveals that Elizabeth Olsen is already on board to play the Scarlet Witch.

In a brief but revealing interview with the Wall Street Journal, Samuel L Jackson let slip that Elizabeth Olsen will be joining the ranks of the Avengers. “I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year,” Jackson said about ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. “I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

Of course, it’s not 100% official until confirmed by Marvel… but coming from Samuel L Jackson, I think it’s safe to say the cat’s out of the bag. According to earlier rumours, Joss Whedon flirted with the idea of bringing Olsen on board after his first choice, Saoirse Ronan, turned down the role. But don’t think for one minute that she’s a sub-par replacement – starring in both the ‘Oldboy’ remake as well as ‘Godzilla’ in 2014, it looks as though she’ll be on her way to becoming a household name by the time the Avengers sequel is released.

There’s still the small matter of who will play her brother, Quicksilver. And that honour seems to go to Aaron Taylor Johnson – the star of ‘Kick-Ass’ and ‘Kick-Ass 2’. How these two new Avengers will fit into the team remains to be seen… but we can’t wait to find out.

“Chekhov was my savoir when I was in high school,” admitted Elizabeth Olsen, who was introduced to the work of the classic playwright at age 15. “I read The Seagull and laid in bed and cried for two hours. I was thinking, ‘This is the best play I’ve ever read!'”

Olsen’s love of the classics continued to grow, especially during her theatre studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She joined the cast of Broadway’s Impressionism as the understudy to Margarita Levieva but never performed onstage, and her first major film role was the title character of “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” a young woman who escaped from an abusive cult.

Olsen, whose film credits also include “Silent House,” “Liberal Arts” and “Kill Your Darlings,” is now taking on the role of Juliet in the Classic Stage Company’s production of Romeo and Juliet, which marks her official New York stage debut. Previews begin Sept. 28 prior to an official opening Oct. 16.

Directed by Tea Algeric, Olsen stars opposite the Romeo of Julian Cihi, a fellow graduate of Tisch School of the Arts. The cast also includes Daniel Davis as Friar Laurence and Daphne Ruben-Vega as the Nurse.

Olsen, who first approached the role of Juliet in a reading at Classic Stage Company in March 2012, said she was initially reluctant to take on the part because she is usually drawn to characters who are “more obviously broken.”

“I guess I kind of jumped to the conclusion, ‘Everyone knows this story. No one’s going to be surprised by anything,'” she said. “And that’s not what it’s about.”
