Having played the role of Scarlet Witch in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and reprising said role in the recently wrapped “Captain America: Civil War,” actress Elizabeth Olsen has spoken at the recent Deauville Film Festival about her involvement in the film and the role itself.
Speaking with Premiere.fr, she revealed she has high hopes for this film in comparison to other Marvel films:
“I think it’s going to be the best one. For real, I am like very excited to see it myself. I only worked on set for five weeks, so I wasn’t there for the majority of it.”
Olsen also had nothing but praise for her “Civil War” co-star Daniel Bruhl who plays the role of Baron Zemo in the film:
“Bruhl is an incredible actor and he’s playing the main villain in it, and he’s incredible! It’s a movie about people as opposed to robots this time. So it’s darker and it’s allowed to be darker because it gets more in the mindset of humans rather than machines.”
Olsen also spoke about her joy being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
“She’s someone who’s more powerful than she’s able to control and she ends up going insane because of it. And she’s like a wildcard. You never know [if] she’s a hero or a villain and that’s a very fun part. Being part of a Marvel movie makes me feel like I’m doing the most top secret thing in the world. It’s ridiculous because it’s a film, but also it’s too bad when people want to spoil things about movies or paparazzi are on set taking pictures of certain things. And everyone then gets to guess what it is that you’re filming. And it ruins it for everyone. I was just so happen that in Avengers [Age of Ultron] we were able to keep a lot of things secret so there were surprises for the audience which is great.”
“Captain America: Civil War” opens next May.
