Looks like Samuel L. Jackson spilled the beans by letting it be known that Elizabeth Olsen has been cast in The Avengers 2 as Scarlet Witch.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Jackson lets it be known they have added Olsen.

“I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year,” Jackson said of “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the next film to begin shooting in the Marvel universe.  ”I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

Olsen has been rumored for the role of Scarlet Witch for sometime.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron has a May 1, 2015 release starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth.
