Will Elizabeth Olsen Be The Scarlet Witch In Age Of Ultron?
The cast for Avengers: Age of Ultron is understandably attracting a huge amount of interest from various corners of the internet. The expanded character list for Joss Whedon's big-budget sequel means that there are a number of high profile roles to be filled. One of those roles is that of the Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff. Saoirse Ronan (The Host, Hanna) was hotly linked with the role, but now rumors are circulating that the role could be given to the rather excellent Elizabeth Olsen.
Of course, these are just rumors at the moment, but said rumors suggest that Saoirse Ronan turned down the role, leading Whedon and co to turn to another actress who appears to be on the 'up and up'. Olsen would really be a fine choice for the role, which is thought to be a fairly significant one for the film. If she does indeed get the part, we're going to be seeing quite a lot of Ms Olsen in the next couple of years as the actress is also set to appear in Spike Lee's Oldboy later this year and 2014's big budget Godzilla.
