“I’ve been rumored about lots of things” the actress tells MTV host Josh Horowitz in an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival about rumors of her being in talks to join the cast of “The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.”
Olsen admits she’s not too familiar with Wanda Maximoff, the mutant sorceress and addition to “The Avengers 2” roster, but the actress says that she grew up loving comics and sci-fi, which formed an entry way into her love of film.
Villains-turned-heroes the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will both be in “Avengers 2” with “X-Men: The Days of Future Past” getting its own Quicksilver under director Bryan Singer.
Olsen is one of many actresses rumored to be up for consideration in the next phase of Marvel’s cinematic universe. The most buzzed-about name right now is Katee Sackhoff who hinted last week that she was in discussions with Marvel for an unnamed role which absolutely better be Captain Marvel before the Internet falls in on itself.
“The Avengers: Age of Ultron” will be out summer 2015.
