With Elizabeth Olsen set to appear with Aaron Taylor-Johnson in both GODZILLA and AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, the actress has been speaking to AICN about those upcoming movies.

On GODZILLA, Olsen said, “It’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s film, but the ensemble, we all are somehow connected to Aaron’s character. He’s the root, and I play his wife and I’m the person who holds down the San Francisco perspective of it all. I’m a nurse and I work trying to take care of this chaos. GODZILLA is just so deserving of a good American remake, and I really hope we did it and I really feel like we did.”

As for playing the Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon’s AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, the actress said, “She’s nuts, she’s crazy. She has more things wrong with her than any character I’ve ever played. She can tell you where an object has been, she can tell you what your future is, she can connect with the dead and people from other universes, and she’s the only person in this universe who’s capable of doing that. She’s unbelievable; it’s so cool. I grew up loving STAR WARS and LORD OF THE RINGS, and anything that has this other type of world or universe to it is so fun.”

Man, the fact that she says she grew up with LORD OF THE RINGS makes me feel mighty old.

Gareth Edwards’ GODZILLA is set for a 16th May, 2014 release, whilst AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will follow on 1st May, 2015.
