Elizabeth Olsen recently revealed that she will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. Olsen’s first appearance will be Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Her character is Scarlet Witch and according to vox.com, her origin is as complex and bizarre as any you’ll find at Marvel. She was abandoned at birth and raised, at various points, by a sentient humanoid cow, gypsies, and Magneto, the villainous master of magnetism. Her powers — being able to alter probability and tap into chaos magic — are strange, too, and seemingly difficult to depict in a movie.
Elizabeth Olsen recently spoke about her character in the MCU: “I guess I’m allowed to talk about that now. This character means a lot to me and I got to work with yet another of the best actors in the world. My character has a very creative way of moving, like dancers. We choreographed to make it really dynamic. Joss introduced these characters where their powers could literally change the direction of the film.”
