Elizabeth Olsen Basically Confirms Scarlet Witch For The Avengers 2 & Could Be At NYCC



Last week saw Samuel L. Jackson spill the beans that The Avengers 2 has picked up Elizabeth Olsen, speculated to be playing the Scarlet Witch.

Now while appearing as a guest on the Live With Kelly & Michael show, the actress all but confirms she is in the movie.

EOnline reports Olsen was questioned about being in The Avengers 2, with her response coming with a big grin.

"Samuel Jackson can say what he likes," Olsen said.

Kelly Ripa then mentioned that "OK. I think that means, yes," and went on to state that Olsen will then be at this weekend's NYCC, insinuating an Avengers appearance, with Elizabeth Olsen playing coy, but offering she just might be there.

"Actually, my brother works for a comic book, so you might. Because I might be visiting his booth," Olsen said.

Olsen's Godzilla co-star, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is currently in talks to play the brother to the Scarlet Witch with Quicksilver.

"The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" has a May 1, 2015 release directed by Joss Whedon and starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson.
