Scarlet Witch the ‘wild card’ in ‘Civil War’ says Elizabeth Olsen

The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended with a new team and D23 footage teased sides in Captain America: Civil War and actress Elizabeth Olsen discussed the role of Scarlet Witch in the upcoming divide between the heroes. In fact, while talking with MTV, Olsen confirmed she has a prominent role as a “wild card.”

“She’s OK. 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,” she said while promoting I Saw the Light at the Toronto film festival.

In The Avengers: Age of Ultron, she’s the result of experiments conducted by Hydra, giving her mind-controlling, mystical superpowers, but the early promos lack Scarlet Witch on either side, confirming Olsen’s statement.

Unfortunately, that’s all Olsen could divulge about her place in the story of Captain America: Civil War but she mentioned that she and her movement coach Jennifer White have developed the way Scarlet Witch moves when using her powers:

“It’s not a new hand technique per say. 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.”
