Elizabeth Olsen has gone from small indie dramas to huge blockbusters in the blink of an eye.
Not only is the acclaimed actress in “Godzilla,” she also landed the coveted role of Scarlet Witch in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which she stars in alongside “Godzilla” co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who plays Quicksilver).
But the two weren’t entirely comfortable going into the superhero sequel.
“It is intimidating going into a production where everyone has their characters fully fleshed out and they know their weaknesses and they have their comedy,” Olsen said. “Aaron and I don’t really have the luxury of time to develop those.”
Luckily, Olsen had a great director to help her with, “all those things [that] make you feel more confident before you’re like, what up Jeremy, let’s do it. You stay in your tights, I’ll stay in mine, and we’ll defeat… things.”
What “things” Olsen might be referring to she wouldn’t say, but apparently she’s already gotten knee deep into some superheroics.
“I’ve been doing some fun stuff,” Olsen explained. “I am unique in this world, and so it’s fun to do what I get to do, because it is different. And I think it also is fun for Joss because we’re developing and creating something together, and he’s getting really excited by it.”
Though Olsen has met all of her fellow Avengers on set, they have unfortunately yet to take what we’re sure will be the most epic group photo ever.
“I’m so excited for that to happen,” Olsen said giddily. “I really am having so much fun.”
We’ll be on the lookout for that photo. And if it happens to be a selfie, well… watch out, Ellen. The Avengers are coming for you.
