Scarlet Witch Elisabeth Olsen up for role in "Avengers 2". A new villain, Wanda Maximoff, is set to appear in marvel's upcoming film, "The Avengers: Age of Ultron." According to Screen Rant on August 22, 2013, rumors are swirling, but it looks like this is for real.
Can you picture Elizabeth Olsen (rumored contender for Scarlet Witch) sharing a relationship with Ultron?
As the Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen will be amazing. Apparently director Joss Whedon chose her over Saoirse Ronan for the role. Other sources claim that she actually turned it down, but was Whedon's first choice. Olsen was quickly chosen next in agreement between Whedon and Marvel.
Olsen will need to cultivate the correct accent or the role, as Maximoff is a distinctly European sounding character. The Scarlet Witch first appeared in Marvel's X-Men comic books starting in 1964. She is married to the Vision and is the daughter of Magneto. She is also has a twin sister, Quicksilver and a half-sister, Polaris.
The Scarlet Witch will debut in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," on May 1, 2015. Elizabeth Olsen is best known for her film roles as an actress. She is also the younger sister of Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen.
