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.
VARIETY – Aubrey Plaza goes insane in a raucous red-band trailer for the dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West,” which shows her crashing a wedding and pepper-spraying the bride, played by Elizabeth Olsen, for not inviting her.
The trailer depicts Plaza’s character Ingrid Thornberg reacting to her mother’s death and a series of self-inflicted setbacks by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession Taylor Sloane (played by Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the facade begins to crack in both women’s lives.
“Ingrid Goes West” is directed by Matt Spicer and written by Spicer and David Branson Smith. The film, which also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen, premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.
Variety‘s Peter Debruge praised Plaza’s performance in his Sundance review: “A semi-ironic, yet still-empathetic ‘Single White Female’ for the Facebook generation, Spicer’s squirm-inducing directorial debut understands both the pleasures and frustrations of judging one’s worth via virtual connections. If positioned correctly, it’s the sort of timely satire that could click with younger audiences — and further bolster Aubrey Plaza’s value in the title role.”
Producers are Jared Ian Goldman, Tim White, Trevor White, Adam Mirels, Robert Mirels, and Plaza. Neon picked up the rights at Sundance and has set an Aug. 4 release.
E! ONLINE – Black Widow and The Hulk aren’t the only heroes who found love in a hopeless place.
Although many of the Avengers grow apart in Captain America: Civil War, two of them manage to grow closer: Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). E! News has an exclusive first look at a bonus feature from the Marvel movie (available on Digital HD Sept. 2 and Blu-ray Sept. 13), in which the stars explain how their characters’ relationship was almost predestined.
“What I love about Vision, he’s sort of on his own quest, which is to understand human beings,” Bettany says of his character, who was accidentally brought to life via an Infinity Stone in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. “He realizes that loyalty has got to come through love—real loyalty—so I think that he’s very intrigued by what love is.”
COLLIDER – With the home entertainment release of Captain America: Civil War on the horizon, the special features are steadily finding their way online. We’ve seen some deleted scenes, and today we have a glimpse at the gag reel for the film.
While there’s nothing major in this minute of bloopers, it still shows the cast having a good time as they flub their lines or mug for the camera between takes. We also see the difficulties in Falcon making a landing and Robert Downey Jr. pretending to get upset with Tom Holland. These are the light moments that gag reels promise, and it looks like the one for Civil War will deliver.
Check out the Captain America: Civil War gag reel below. Captain America: Civil War hits Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 2nd and Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on September 13th.
