Elizabeth Olsen Talks Godzilla and Avengers: Age of Ultron

Ain’t It Cool News chatted with Oldboy star Elizabeth Olsen about her next two films in which she co-stars opposite Aaron Taylor-Johnson – Godzilla and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

She talked a bit about her character in Godzilla, for which we should see the trailer soon.

“It’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron’s character,” she said, “He’s the root, and I play his wife and I’m the person who holds down the San Francisco prospective of it all. I’m a nurse and I work trying take care of this chaos. ‘Godzilla’ is just so deserving of a good American remake, and I really hope we did it and I really feel like we did.”

In the spring, she’ll also play Scarlet Witch alongside Taylor-Johnson’s Quicksilver in Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

“She’s nuts, she’s crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I’ve ever played,” Olsen said about the character. “She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from other universes, and she’s the only person in this universe who’s capable of doing that. She’s unbelievable; it’s so cool. I grew up loving ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Lord of the Rings,’ and anything that has this other type of world or universe to it is so fun.”

Godzilla is scheduled for a May 16, 2014 release and Avengers: Age of Ultron is hitting theaters on May 1, 2015.
