Elizabeth Olson confirmed her role as the Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2 during an interview with MTV News.

Although former co-star Samuel L. Jackson confirmed her involvement in the movie a month ago, Olson has declined to comment until recently.

“We added Ms. Olsen, but I don’t know what she’s doing,” Jackson told The Wall Street Journal. “I haven’t seen a script.”

Olson said she is excited to work with her Godzilla co-star Aaron Taylor-Johnson again.

“Even though in ‘Godzilla’ we play husband and wife, we don’t have a lot of scenes together,” Olson said. “I’m so excited…to actually work with each other. I think it’s going to be fun.”

Olson is also looking forward to working with Joss Whedon, though she said he is too smart for himself. Despite this, Olson said Whedon is nothing short of amazing.

Before The Avengers 2 hits theaters, Olson can be seen in Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla remake and Spike Lee’s Oldboy.

The Avengers 2 is set to arrive at theaters in 2015.
