Watch: Elizabeth Olsen Says Scarlet Witch Will Be the “Wild Card” in Captain America: Civil War


Following The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Elizabeth Olsen will be back for Captain America: Civil War reprising as the Scarlet Witch. Previous leaked promo images didn’t feature Scarlet Witch as part of Team Captain America or Team Iron Man, and in the above video, Olsen offers why.

Olsen remarks Scarlet Witch is doing okay following what happened with Avengers 2, but at the same time Wanda is confused and conflicted. Olsen offers why she hasn’t been seen on a particular team is because Scarlet Witch is “always the wild card.”

“Captain America: Civil War” has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
