Elizabeth Olsen cast as Scarlet Witch for Avengers 2.
Can a brother discuss how cool this is? Bringing the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver into the Avengers is the natural progression to the Avengers story. The brother and sister duo have great mutant powers that will make an excellent translation to film. Olsen is no lightweight either. She has gotten rave reviews for all the movies she has done since coming out of the shadow of her more famous and soulless sisters. She is the 'other' Olsen sister but not a twin. That deal with the devil has not touched Elizabeth for all I have seen and heard. She's the one in that family with any REAL talent.
Don't underestimate The Scarlet Witch either. Her mutant power is magical and allows her to alter probabilities. If ANYONE can defeat the likes of a Thanos or Ultron is someone who can change the very fabric of reality and 'reset' any bad that has been done. Plus adding the character makes way for one of my favorite little pet ideas about the Age Of Ultron chapter in the Avengers movie universe - that Agent Coulson will become the brain/consciousness for the android named The Vision. If he could die and come back as an LMD then he can certainly evolve into The Vision.

Yes that is cool.

But now I want my Zatanna movie even more!

thank you for the image attack and news... she is a cute young lady!

Don't jinx it by talking about Zatanna, Tim.

Lizbeth is the talented one in that family. She can do the accent too I hope. It's great casting news and I am glad that indie darling Olsen is not to proud to be in a huge blockbuster.

Gotta get these young up and comers early in their career. Curious how they'll her powers and backstory.

Well she is the daughter of Magneto which gives us a link to the entire Marvel Mutantverse.
