For months now, just who will play superpowered siblings Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver in Avengers: Age of Ultron has been pretty much a foregone conclusion.
But actors in talks don't always become the actors who play the parts, so Marvel Studios has officially announced that Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are set to appear in the Avengers sequel.

The nation took a trip to Asgard this weekend, propelling Thor: The Dark World to a big debut at number, continuing the Marvel Studios hot streak and ensuring continued adventures for the God of Thunder.
Thanks to countless trailers, TV spots, and whatnot, the "Anyone else?" beat in Thor: The Dark World has no doubt been spoiled for you.
But a new clip for this weeks Marvel fantasy adventure provides some context and, in the process, reminds us why Chris Hemsworth is so damn great at the God of Thunder.

What better way get in the Asgardian spirit with a new featurette and TV spot for the Thor sequel?
Everybody – everybody! – loves Loki, but the latest clip from Thor: The Dark World reminds us all that the God of Mischief would actually be a really annoying little brother.
