The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” movie introduced us to new characters, including the Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen.
At the end of the movie, it was revealed that our Scarlet Witch became an Avenger and that she will appear in the Captain America: Civil War movie. Business Insider had the chance to talk a little bit with the actress at the Toronto International Film Festival where the actress was promoting her new movie, I Saw the Light. She was asked if she’d like to have a standalone movie as some of the other Avengers had. She replied by saying that a standalone movie would not be “necessary” in the MCU. “I’m not sure, honestly. I love my character, I just don’t know how that would fit in the whole Marvel universe or if it would even be necessary. The pressure of a tent pole movie on my shoulders doesn’t feel comfortable”, she said. However, if they decide to make a movie all about the Scarlet Witch, I do hope that firstly they would make a movie all about Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson).
After wrapping up the productions for the Marvel movie The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Elizabeth started productions on another project, very different from the Marvel one. She played in “I Saw The Light” with another MCU actor, Tom Hiddleston. Elizabeth Olsen reveals that she is very excited to play in Marvel movies or other productions as well. “The good thing about Marvel is they have so many other things going on that they have to plan their year so specifically. I already know my block of time for them for the next year, and I have a lot of time until then, so I’m in a position right now where I’m trying to find another film like ‘I Saw The Light'”, she said.
Collider successfully had an interview with her, where Elizabeth Olsen revealed more interesting things about the upcoming Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War. “I was only there for five weeks of it, but we were all super stoked about it… Even though the Ultron robots are so intensely human because of its mind, we’re actually dealing with humans this time through and through. There’s nothing scarier than something that’s like you being dangerous, so I think it’s darker and it’s fun. It’s really fun, it was so hard to shoot, but I think it’s gonna be a really interesting film. I’m excited to see how they’re gonna end it. I wanna see what the ending shots look like because I wanna know what the ellipses is at the end of the film (laughs). ”
Scarlet Witch will soon become one of my favorite Marvel characters.
