Two cast members, said to be in talks for major superhero sequels, now look to be locked in.
First up, Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen has boarded Marvel Studios’ “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Speaking with The Wall Street Journal, Jackson says:
“I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year. I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”
Marvel has yet to officially confirm the involvement of either Olsen or Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver respectively.
Meanwhile actor Paul Giamatti, who plays the Rhino in next year’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” has confirmed to Collider that he’ll be back for a third film in that series.
He stopped short though of confirming the Sinister Six’s involvement or his own involvement in the already announced fourth film.
