COMICBOOKMOVIE – As filming continues on Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, we have a much better look at The Scarlet Witch (Liz Olsen) doing battle with what is rumored to be a member of Thanos’ Black Order…
We’ve already had blurry glimpses of Elizabeth Olsen and her stunt double shooting an explosive action scene on the set of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, but this latest video provides a much better look at what’s going on.
In it, we see Olsen’s Scarlet Witch fighting for her life against an actor in a motion-capture suit, who could well turn out to be a member of The Cull Obsidian – and, there’s been speculation that it might even be Thanos’ most fearsome general, Corvus Glaive, because of the pike-like weapon he’s wielding.
Previous set pics confirmed that The Vision (Paul Bettany) will also be involved in this scene, but there’s no sign of him here. Is there a chance he’s already been taken out of action, perhaps?
Check out the footage below and let us know what you make of it.
INVERSE – Captain America: Civil War was released September 2nd as an iTunes digital download. The package includes the blooper reel previously launched online, and a bunch of mini comics and behind the scenes featurettes, some of which are unlockable based on the viewer’s self-professed “team”. Opening up the digital download launches a menu screen which asks viewers to choose a side: either Team Cap or Team Tony.
COMIC BOOK MOVIE – While confirming Elizabeth Olsen’s return as Wanda Maximoff for Avengers: Infinity War, the co-director of Civil War has also hinted that the character will have reached her full potential by then.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is one of the many Avengers that’s set to return for Captain America: Civil War, though she seems to have been given a slight power-downgrade since we last saw her in Age Of Ultron. While the origins of her mysterious abilities are mentioned, we still don’t learn exactly how powerful she’s capable of becoming – but it seems we might find out in Avengers: Infinity War.
During a press conference with Clevver Movies, Civil War co-director Joe Russo addressed Wanda’s power set, and explains how an early “mistake” causes her to hold back a bit over the course of the film. But, come Infinity War it sounds like we may get that all-powerful Scarlet Witch fans have been waiting to see.
“She is on a growth arc, and it is part of her development. It is very tricky with powerful characters, because unless they have an internal struggle or a flaw that limits them then they do become limitless, and the storytelling becomes muddled and not very interesting.
You know she could’ve stopped that fight at the airport in 5 seconds if she were at the peak of her powers, so it really has to do her character specifically going on a journey to understand what the limits of her powers are. She makes a mistake very early in the movie that sets her back, and we’ll get to see where she goes in Infinity War.”
If Wanda becomes even half as powerful as she’s been depicted in the comics at times, Thanos had better watch out! Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 will hit theaters on May 4th, 2018.
