Elizabeth Olsen Doesn't Think Scarlet Witch Will Get a Solo Film
Scarlet Witch has been a surprisingly well-done character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. When she was revealed at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I never really thought I would like her as much as I did once we saw her do her thing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Then, in Captain America: Civil War, we got to see more of her and her story and Marvel has done a great job with her character in my opinion. That being said, some fans are curious if she’ll get her own movie (after all Marvel has a bunch of movies in the works that have not been named) while others are more curious about what will happen with her character if Marvel gets the rights back to the X-Men. After all, she is the daughter of Magneto in the comics. In a recent interview with Everything Iconic, Olsen addressed these two questions:
While I would enjoy a Scarlet Witch sitcom about her day to day life, I don’t think that would be the right direction. I also agree with Olsen that it would be weird to have Magneto enter the MCU and all of a sudden Wanda Maximoff is a mutant instead of the Mind Stone giving her powers as we were told in previous films. They talk about a lot of topics, but if you want the Marvel-related questions, those start around 7:10. Do you want Scarlet Witch to get her own movie? How should they handle things if the X-Men join the MCU?
Based on the promotional materials, it looks like we'll see a healthy amount of Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Infinity War which comes to theaters on April 27, 2018.
