Why The Avengers Should Fear Scarlet Witch, According to Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen thinks that the Avengers  should be afraid of Scarlet Witch.  In a recent interview, the 26-year-old actress gave us the down-low on her character in “Civil War.” Read on for more details.  

Olsen just gave us some major “Civil War” spoilers about her character as Scarlet Witch. She was in conversation with USA Today about her role in the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War”, and she thinks that her character is the wild-card of the team. And that is why there is no Scarlet Witch in the promo photos of “Civil War.” Speaking with the publication, Olsen said:


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.”

Looking at Marvel comics history, Olsen has a justifiable perspective. Scarlet Witch or Wanda Maximoff is not the most heroic of characters, and she does have a tendency to go completely bonkers at times. Like the time she rewrote the entire Marvel Universe and recreated a world where mutants rule in ‘House of M.’ So if the Avengers fear her in ‘Civil War’, they probably have a good cause to.

And speaking of ‘House of M’, Olsen wants to do that movie. Olsen said that she would love to play house in the Marvel Universe with in-canon lover ‘Vision’ (portrayed by the incredible Paul Bettany in “Age of Ultron”) and eventually destroy all the mutants on Earth. And while that does sound truly incredible, even Olsen admits it is not likely to happen anytime soon. Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 15 perhaps?

Olsen also said that she loves playing a complex character, comprised of such shades of gray, like Scarlet Witch, which is contrasting her character to the perpetual do-gooder Captain America. Olsen would like to play such a character in the “Star Wars” universe too. J. J. Abrams, are you listening to this? We want a “Star Wars” spinoff featuring Scarlet Witch.
