Elizabeth Olsen: Scarlet Witch in 'Avengers 2'?

It looks like Elizabeth Olsen has landed the role of Scarlet Witch in the highly-anticipated upcoming film Avengers 2.

According to Samuel L. Jackson, the 24-year-old actress has been added to the cast.

“I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside,” Samuel told the Wall Street Journal. “I haven’t seen a script.”

Production is expected to begin in March 2014 with a May 1, 2015 slated release date.
