Scarlet Witch Confirmed for Avengers 2

So it’s not that surprising to find out that the Scarlet Witch will be in the next Avengers movie especially since her comic book twin brother Quick Silver being played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson was announced a couple weeks ago. The big news however is that Scarlet Witch will be played by none other than actress Elizabeth Olsen! That’s right, the younger sister of the famed Olsen twins will be joining the Avengers to take on Ultron.

The interesting coincidence is that Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olson are also costaring in the upcoming Godzilla remake. There they will play a husband and wife pair as opposed to twin siblings. Some of you might remember that Mr. Samuel L. Jackson let that cat out of the bag about a month ago that Elizabeth would be playing the Scarlet Witch but not we get it straight from the official source.

Quote Elizabeth Olsen;
“We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister. It’s also fun because even though in ‘Godzilla’ we play husband and wife, we don’t have a lot of scenes together. I just love him, I love his family, I love his kids. I’m so excited … to actually work with each other. I think it’s going to be fun.”
