Elizabeth Olsen Back as Scarlet Witch in 'Captain America: Civil War'

Elizabeth Olsen

In just one week, The Avengers: Age of Ultron will be hitting theaters here in the United States, even though it's already started playing overseas. We're eagerly awaiting to see how it progresses the Marvel cinematic universe and potentially sets up what will be a major conflict for our heroes in Captain America: Civil War. The sequel already has Robert Downey Jr. on board as Iron Man, and it will also see Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie and Jeremy Renner will also pop up as Black Widow, Falcon and Hawkeye, and Chadwick Boseman will debut as Black Panther. And now one more character will be back.

CBM attended a Q&A event at the Apple Store in London with director Joss Whedon and actress Elizabeth Olsen, and the latter, new star of Avengers: Age of Ultron revealed that her new character, Scarlet Witch, will be back in Captain America: Civil War. While that might be considered a spoilery detail, no one really thought that they would introduce a character like Scarlet Witch and just dispatch with her in a single movie. That would just be a waste. After all, we already know she ends up on the side of the Avengers eventually, after initially working with Ultron, so it just makes sense for her to stick around. But what about Quicksilver? Does he not make it? I suppose we'll find out next week.

Well we are talking about the Civil War...

That's the big rumor (SPOILER!!!) - that Quicksilver kicks the bucket.....we shall see. It seems like only he and Vision don't have any other Marvel movies lined up....

Damn I wish I could spoil you, but I'm not that dick :3

Thanks for not spoiling it. I guess it will be "public knowledge" in a week. I'm glad you enjoyed the movie though.

Age Of Ultron was so GOOD! 😀 There are apparently some critics who thinks it wasn't that great, but don't believe them.

Tuomas Lassila on Apr 23, 2015


On a scale of 1 to 10 what would you give Avengers 2? Do you think it was better that the first? Just curious. I don't care either way. I'm going to see it next week....

TheOct8pus on Apr 23, 2015


10. As if it's better than the first one, hard to say, they both have different pros compared to each other. But you're gonna love Ultron.

Tuomas Lassila on Apr 23, 2015


I read that Ultron pretty much steals the show?

Yeah, pretty much every line of his is perfect. But his best lines are the ones he says when his plans gets interrupted or ruined.

Tuomas Lassila on Apr 23, 2015


How much is Vision in the film? I keep getting this feeling he'll be introduced the last 20-30 minutes of the film, unfortunately.

The moment he's born, final battle and one event at the end. It something like 30-35 final minutes (maybe, I'm bad calculating time in my head) but he has many cool moments to make up for his screen time.

Tuomas Lassila on Apr 23, 2015


Maybe this is just me, but it seems like the Ultron story should have been the subject of an Iron Man movie featuring a couple guests, and Civil War should have been Avengers 2.

I see where you are going with that, but an Avengers movie would be the team dynamic, while Civil War is more of the Avengers being split in two, with one or two kinda caught in the middle (obviously there will be differences from the source comics).

I hope she gets more to work with than what she did in AGE OF ULTRON.

DAVIDPD on Apr 23, 2015


this killed the first avengers movie, couldn't stop laughing! plus heaps of action, good character development too! so many things to discuss with people, but i don't want to ruin anything!

One word for the movie: Awesome!
