Elizabeth Olson in talks for Avenger's Scarlet Witch


Today is the day we get news about superhero movie castings. Earlier it was Bradley Cooper possibly taking on Rocket Raccoon and now it's Elizabeth Olson being in final talks to play the Scarlet Witch in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Evidently this is more of a sure thing than the Cooper deal as negotiations are further along.

I can't say that Elisabeth Olsen is a person I would ever think of when casting a superhero movie, but on the other hand neither was Anna Paquin and that turned out fine. My guess is that they'll be taking the character in a bit different direction than the comic books, though Olsen is a talented enough actress that she could probably handle any direction the want to take her in. It'll be very interesting to see what she and Joss Whedon do with the character.
