Samuel L. Jackson is clearly not as good of a spy as his role as Nick Fury or his eye-patch has led us to believe.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Jackson, clearly not following S.H.I.E.L.D. protocol, let slip the clandestine information that Elizabeth Olsen is definitely taking part in the upcoming Marvel flick The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In the interview, Jackson said, "I don't think we begin shooting before March of next year," Jackson said of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, the next film in the Marvel universe to begin production. "I know we're shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she's doing, if she's on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script."

Olsen, the younger sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, has become an accomplished young actor in her short career by sticking largely to indie fare like 2011's Martha Marcy May Marlene, for which she garnered significant critical acclaimShe now appears to be peppering in some genre and thriller projects into her résumé with roles in films like Oldboy, Godzilla, and this upcoming Avengers sequel.

The character she's pegged to play, Scarlet Witch, is one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel universe, possessing the ability to bend and fold the fabric of reality with just her thoughts. That, added to her history of mental instability, will definitely give the Avengers a slew of problems to deal with come 2015. Ms. Olsen seems to already have experience with reality-shaping, seemingly having bent her older sisters out of existence.
