Elizabeth Olsen Says Scarlet Witch Is a "Messed Up Lady"
On Monday Marvel officially announced that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson would be playing Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Joss Whedon's The Avengers: Age of Ultron. In a recently interview with Moviefone, Olsen talks the character and her excitement to play her, saying,
"I hung out with Mr. Whedon recently. I'm really excited about this movie. I'm so excited about Scarlet Witch. I have had so much fun reading all about her and I am like learning new words that I had to look up on Wikipedia. I'm really enjoying it.
"I just love Scarlet Witch. I love her. It's so funny because I'm often talking about all these psychologically damaged people, but when you talk about Scarlet Witch... She is a messed up lady. She has got more sh*t to deal with than anybody else I know. I'm excited to figure out what's appropriate to use for her, because there's so much material from all of these decades, and we're going to tell this one story. So to be able to choose what you're going to bring into it from all of this abundance, it's really fun."
Olsen is a great actress, and I'm sure she's going to be awesome in the role. The movie is set to be released on May 1st, 2015, and the Avengers come together again to take on a crazy new villain that is going to put them to the test.
