Avengers: Age of Ultron - Elizabeth Olsen's Deal Nearly Done

Avengers: Age Of Ultron

In case anyone doubted that Samuel L. Jackson knew what he was talking about when he told The Wall Street Journal earlier today that Godzilla and Oldboy leading lady Elizabeth Olsen will join Avengers: Age of Ultron, Deadline has confirmed that the actress is nearing a deal to play Wanda Maximoff, better known to comics fans as The Scarlet Witch.

A source close to the situation told the trade website that it's “just a matter of formality before [Olsen's deal is] done.”

Rumors have been circulating that Olsen would play the role for a while now, but it's been difficult to gauge how seriously to take the reports since Olsen's name comes up in virtually every A-list opening Hollywood has these days.
