LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- There’s been no official word on new cast members joining “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but series star Samuel L. Jackson’s words do pack some punch!
According to the actor, who plays Nick Fury in the Marvel Universe, Elizabeth Olsen (the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) will be in the “Avengers” sequel.
“I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside,” he told the Wall Street Journal, referring to if she’ll side with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes or someone else. “I haven’t seen a script.”
The actress has long been rumored to play Scarlet Witch, with Aaron Taylor-Johnson rumored to play her brother Quicksilver.
Director Joss Whedon hinted at the siblings appearing in the next film back in April.
“I’ve got these two characters [in the first draft of my script] – my favorite characters in the comic book, a brother-sister act,” he said at the time. “They’re in the movie, that’s exciting.”
According to Jackson, filming is slated to begin in March 2014.
