Elizabeth Olsen has been approached to star in the upcoming sequel, Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, as Scarlet Witch.
Saoirse Ronan was previously rumored to be the contender for the part of Wanda Maximoff but apparently has passed on the part. Now Elizabeth Olsen has been said to be the new favorite to play Scarlet Witch. Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch’s brother, has been offered to Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), with an official casting announcement expected soon. Bleeding Cool first reported the story followed by The Hollywood Reporter confirming it.
Elizabeth Olsen will next be seen in Spike Lee’s Oldboy and Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla.
