Samuel L. Jackson confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen will join the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast.

Jackson was being interviewed on his recent cameo appearance in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where he reprised his role as Nick Fury, the mastermind behind The Avengers. During the interview, Jackson revealed what he knows about the sequel to 2012’s hit film, The Avengers.

“I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy and that we added Ms. Olsen, but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script,” Jackson spilled.

Rumors of Olsen getting involved with the superhero franchise have picked up steam recently, but her casting has not yet been confirmed by Marvel or Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon. It is believed that Olsen has been cast to play the Scarlet Witch, the daughter of X-Men’s villainous Magneto. Though the Scarlet Witch is not set to have a role in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past film, her twin brother Quicksilver is being played by Evan Peters in the X-Men film.

Though some speculate that the inclusion of Scarlet Witch could open the door for an AvengersX-men crossover, it does not seem likely. Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) is rumored to be close to closing a deal to play Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
