Elizabeth Olsen talks Scarlet Witch, plus leaked Civil War promo art
Elizabeth Olsen didn't reveal any spoilery CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR plot details during a recent interview with USA Today, but the actress did again described Scarlet Witch as being a wild card, and said her character is coming into her own in THE WINTER SOLDIER/AGE OF ULTRON sequel.
She’s coming into her own and starting to understand and have conflict with how she wants to use her abilities. It’s a dramatic conflict within her and obviously there’s conflict within the (Avengers) as well. I like that they didn’t release Scarlet Witch in the promo photos for the teams — it places her as being a wild card, and I like her having that kind of edge that people don’t know what she’s capable of. They can fear her because she is so incredibly powerful in a different way than the rest of the heroes for the most part. I like playing that role within the gang.
Olsen also talked about the lengths Marvel Studios will go to to keep things secret.
When you get the pages that you’re filming that day, you’re not allowed to take those home with you. They account for everyone at the end of the day and then they shred it. I took this one photograph, it was actually on (Civil War). Barry, who’s our security guy and is amazing, he can detect a paparazzi from like a 15-mile radius. He’s incredible. Obviously he can’t lock down public streets and bridges and things like that, but he locks down everything he can. I have this photo of Jenny my movement coach and I posing for a photo on my phone, and then in the background we asked Barry to try and interrupt us and scream at us. They have a zero tolerance policy for releasing photos on a set. It’s pretty serious — you feel like you’re doing something for the government and you’re making a movie.
When asked what a Vision and Scarlet Witch movie would look like, Olsen said she would really like it to be an adaptation of the House of M story from the comics, although she admits it probably isn't going to happen since Fox owns the X-Men and mutant movie rights.
It has to be House of M. That’s still all I want to do, I don’t care. I would just love to have make-believe children and have him play along with it and then just decide to destroy all mutants. That would be so fun but obviously that would never happen. (Laughs)
Several pieces of CIVIL WAR promo art have also leaked online that provide us with new looks at Captain America, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Black Panther, War Machine and more, which you can check out below.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is due in theaters on May 6, 2016.
