Elizabeth Olsen has been added to the cast of the “Avengers” sequel. The news was confirmed by Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury in the franchise.

“I don’t think we begin shooting before March of next year,” Jackson said. “I know we’re shooing in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] 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 may just have spilled the beans on the casting secret, but there is still no word on which character Olsen will play. There has, however, been speculation that she will take on the role of Scarlet Witch, the daughter of Magneto and twin sister of Quicksilver.

Avengers: Age of Ultron” is scheduled to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
