Elizabeth Olsen Talks Scarlet Witch & ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’: “She Is A Messed Up Lady”
A day after Marvel (finally) confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will make her debut as Scarlet Witch in’ Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the actress talked to Moviefone on the press campaign for ‘Oldboy’ about the role. “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.
Elizabeth Olsen continued, “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.”
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen join the Avengers family as the brother-sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the highly-anticipated sequel to 2012′s ‘Marvel’s The Avengers.’ Taylor-Johnson broke out with his roles as Dave Lizewski in the ‘Kick-Ass’ franchise and with his portrayal of a young John Lennon in ‘Nowhere Boy,’ for which he won an Empire Award for Best Newcomer.
