After months of rumors, Elizabeth Olsen has finally confirmed that she has joined The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Samuel L. Jackson had seemingly confirmed Olsen's role in an October interview with The Wall Street Journal, and now the actress herself has shared the good news with MTV News. Olsen will be playing Scarlet Witch, Magneto's daughter.
One day it's a punctured plane, the next a horde of Peruvian rebels blasting AK-47s, the next a mad scientist or a serial killer. There always seems to be danger in the air on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though that's not the case right now. What's wafting through the show's Los Angeles soundstage is the unmistakable scent of love.
The cast of the ABC action-fantasy series has gathered on the Bus — a high-tech megajet — to shoot a scene that finds the government agents regrouping after a particularly rough mission.
