Elizabeth Olsen has finally confirmed long-standing rumours that she is set to appear in the upcoming Avengers sequel!
The actress has been linked to the the role of Scarlet Witch for some time and just last month co-star Samuel L. Jackson appeared to let the cat out of the bag when he told the Wall Street Journal that the franchise had "added Ms Olsen".
Speaking to MTV News US yesterday (November 11), Olsen admitted she has been cast in the film and thanked Jackson for 'releasing her from the awkwardness' of being unable to speak about it.
The 24-year-old beauty said she's looking forward to acting opposite her on-screen brother Aaron Taylor-Johnson when he takes on the role of Quicksilver.
She dished: "We get to play husband and wife [in the upcoming Godzilla remake], and we get to play twin brother and sister."
The Martha Marcy May Marlene star continued: "It's also fun because even though in 'Godzilla' we play husband and wife, we don't have a lot of scenes together.
"I just love him. I love his family. I love his kids. I'm so excited...to actually work with each other. I think it's going to be fun."
Olsen also spoke about the film's director Joss Whedon, revealing: "He's very smart. He's too smart. He might be too smart. Some people are too smart for their own good, but he's amazing."
Avengers: Age of Ultron is slated to hit cinemas in May 2015.
