Elizabeth Olsen frontrunner for Scarlet Witch role in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron


21 August 2013

Joss Whedon's sequel to Avengers Assemble entitled Avengers: Age of Ultron has reportedly got a new frontrunner for the role of Scarlet Witch in the form of Elizabeth Olsen.

Bleeding Cool report that Whedon has turned his attention to the Silent House actress after first choice Saoirse Ronan turned down the part.

In Marvel Comics lore, Scarlet Witch is the daughter of X-Men villain Magneto and the brother of Quicksilver and due to the affiliation with both the Avengers and the X-Men, Fox and Mavel Studios share the rights to use the characters on the big screen.
