Is Elizabeth Olsen The Scarlet Witch?

“Martha Marcy May Marlene” and “Silent House” star Elizabeth Olsen has reportedly become the next front runner for the role of Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. The Scarlet Witch, in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” at Marvel Studios.

Bleeding Cool reports that Saoirse Ronan was Joss Whedon’s top pick for the role but has apparently passed on it.

Olsen will reportedly need to adopt a ‘European’ accent for the role.
