Rumored for a long time and seemingly confirmed by Samuel L. Jackson last month, Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed with MTV that she will play Wanda Maximoff, AKA The Scarlet Witch, in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. She spoke to the site specifically about acting alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson once again, whom she just completed Godzilla with a few months ago.
“We get to play husband and wife, and we get to play twin brother and sister,” she said. “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 we get to work with each other more and to actually work with each other. I think it’s going to be fun.”
When asked if she’d seen any concept art or costuming for the film she replied,“No, I just know about it. It’s been talked about, and it’s so fun.”

Featuring favorites from the first “Avengers” film and new Marvel characters never before seen on the big screen, Avengers: Age of Ultron will hit theaters on May 1, 2015. Production is expect to begin in March 2014.
