    Whoops. Did Samuel L. Jackson just let a serious cat out of the bag? (Yep. And we're OK with that.)

    While chatting with the Wall Street Journal about his cameo as Nick Fury on ABC's Marvel's Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D., the actor confirmed that Elizabeth Olsen is joining the cast of the highly anticipated Avengers sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    "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."

    And while Jackson didn't specifically say which character Olsen is taking on, there's been much speculation that it will most certainly be the Scarlet Witch, the daughter of Magneto and the twin sister of Quicksilver.

    After all, Bleeding Cool first reported back in August that the younger sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen was in negotiations with Marvel for the role.

    Meanwhile, Avengers: Age of Ultron is slated to hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
