Avengers 2's Rumored Scarlet Witch Really Wants To Work With Downey


She hasn't starred in a comic book movie just yet, but actress Elizabeth Olsen, who is rumored to be Joss Whedon's favorite to play Wanda Maximoff in Avengers: Age of Ultron, certainly sounds like she's made for the part.

In the course of a recent interview, the prospect of working onscreen with Iron Man and Avengers star Robert Downey, Jr. came up--and the Godzilla and Oldboy actress gushed.

"I would do anything with him! If he was part of a project and I could be in any scene with him, I would do it hands down," Olsen told Dazed and Confused. "He's so talented. And so smart. You just don't have that kind of humor unless you're smart."

She's also got a bit of a history with comic book movie actors; she told the same interviewer that her screen hero was Michelle Pfeiffer.

"Best Catwoman ever," she said. "Also, she is able to exude sexuality without being written off as dumb. You look at her and think 'F--k, she's sexy, but she's not sexy and stupid, she's sexy and owns it because she's smarter than everybody else in the room."
