With it now official – despite being known for months – that Elizabeth Olsen will be playing the Scarlet Witch in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, the actress has been speaking to Moviefone about the character and what she describes as one “messed up lady.”

Olsen said, “I hung out with Mr. Whedon recently. I’m really excited about this movie. I’m so excited about scarlet Witch. I have had so much fun reading all about her and I am like learning new words that I had to look up on Wikipedia. I’m really enjoying it.”

She added, “I just love Scarlet Witch. I love her. It’s so funny because I’m often talking about all these psychologically damaged people, but when you talk about Scarlet Witch… she is a messed up lady. She has got more shit to deal with than anybody else I know. I’m excited to figure out what’s appropriate to use for her, because there’s so much material from all of these decades, and we’re going to tell this one story. So to be able to choose what you’re going to bring into it from all of this abundance, it’s really fun.”

At present, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is set for a 1st May, 2015 release.
