Spoilers for “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” below!
When we last saw Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen’s super-spooky “Avengers: Age of Ultron” character, she was in a difficult emotional place. She’d just experienced a significant personal loss, but had gained a new family, with the New Avengers. So you can understand how it might be hard to guess where she’ll be when “Captain America: Civil War” hits screens on May 6, 2016.
Turns out, just fine! Olsen filled MTV News in at Toronto International Film Festival, where she’s doing press rounds for “I Saw The Light,” her Hank Williams biopic with fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe star, Tom Hiddleston.
“She’s OK,” Olsen said of where Scarlet Witch is when we pick up in Captain America’s next adventure. “She’s doing alright. She’s confused, she’s conflicted. She’s found some people she thinks she connects with, but she’s doing alright. They released images of Team Cap and Team Iron Man. She wasn’t there. She’s always the wild card. I like being the wild card.”
At the very least, Wanda will be doing well enough to break out some new tricks in “Civil War” — one’s Olsen told us she developed with her “Age of Ultron” movement coach, Jennifer White.
“It’s not a new hand technique per say,” Olsen noted. “We’re trying to grow her movement as a whole… Jenny and I have great pride in trying to make this a huge transformation — the next time we see her — of her abilities.”
Bet you didn’t see that coming.
