Avengers: Age of Ultron star Elizabeth Olsen seems pretty kicked about reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Captain America 3: Civil War. The actress recently stated that her character is more of a "wild card" in the film and teased that she may switch teams in the Iron Man vs Captain America epic.
In her latest interview with Collider, Olsen spoke about her experience while filming Civil War and compared the conflict in the film to her last Marvel film, Age of Ultron. "I was only there [Captain America 3 shoot] 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," she said of Civil War.
"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," Olsen added. Fans would know that Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver sided with Ultron initially in Avengers 2. However, after they realised the twisted robot's evil intentions, they helped The Avengers stop him. Quicksilver lost his life in the final battle and Scarlet Witch went on to join the new Avengers roster under Captain America's leadership.
When asked if she will return as Scarlet Witch in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, Olsen said, "Those are things I would like to know too." She continued, "Those are things I have a group of people with me right now that would like to know too."
Meanwhile, in another interview with Business Insider, the actress was asked about her views on potentially starring in a solo Scarlet Witch movie for Marvel, to which she replied: "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 actress then admitted, "The pressure of a tentpole movie on my shoulders doesn't feel comfortable."
