Disney send word that Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: The Dark World’ has officially crossed the $600 million mark at the global box office (Domestic – $188.9 million, International – $411.8 million). This makes it the third Disney release, and second Marvel Studios film, to do so this year, following Marvel’s ‘Iron Man 3′ and Disney•Pixar’s ’Monsters University.’ The film has already outgrossed the first ‘Thor’ installment by over $150 million and has also passed the global box office totals for both ‘Iron Man’ ($585 million) and ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ ($371 million).
Shortly after Marvel (finally) confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will make her debut as Scarlet Witch in’ Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ the actress talked to AintItCool on the press campaign for ‘Oldboy’ about the role. “She’s nuts, she’s crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I’ve ever played. 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.”
Elizabeth Olsen also talked a bit about her character in ‘Godzilla,’ for which she co-stars opposite her ’Avengers: Age of Ultron’ brother, Aaron Taylor-Johnson. “It’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron’s character, 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.”

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.”
