It’s high time Marvel start investing in their female properties. Even though Captain Marvel is on its way as part of Phase 3 (and presumably there she will appear in one of the earlier movies to start establishing her as a presence), the treatment of Black Widow and even Scarlet Witch so far has left a little to be desired. Yes, the latter appeared first in an ensemble, so was never going to get masses of screen time, but she is an intriguing prospect for one of the more unexpected possibilities for the Marvel slate beyond Phase 3.
In conversation with USA Today to promote the blu-ray release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Elizabeth Olsen has talked about her excitement at playing the McU’s biggest current wildcard (well one of them – remember, we have to think of Vision in similar terms:
“It’s a dramatic conflict within her and »

Another day, another flurry of reports coming out of Captain America: Civil War. After referring to her character of Scarlet Witch as the threequel’s undisputed wild card along with entertaining the idea of a spinoff film for Wanda Maximoff, it is Elizabeth Olsen once again who is teasing the tenacious nature of her supernatural Avenger, and this time there’s a nugget related to her relationship with the Vision.
Before that, though, the actress spoke more about the evolution of Scarlet Witch, and why audiences will see the budding new recruit to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes really “coming into her own” in Joe and Anthony Russo’s follow-up. I guess Hawkeye’s speech during the climax of Age of Ultron really made the world of difference.

After debuting in Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier this year, Scarlet Witch is posed to be an important player in Marvel.s Phase Three, appearing next year in Captain America: Civil War and likely beyond. However, like most of her teammates in the New Avengers, Wanda Maximoff isn.t set to lead her own movie. Elizabeth Olsen has previously said she.s okay with this, but if Scarlet Witch were to go off on her own, there.s only one comic storyline Olsen wants to see the solo movie adapt. Noting the brief, but tender, scene between Scarlet Witch and Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron, USA Today asked Olsen what a hypothetical Scarlet Witch/Vision movie might look like. The actress answered House of M, the 2005 miniseries that saw Scarlet Witch overwriting the main Marvel universe. Olsen said: It has to be House of M. That.s still all »
It.s no secret that Marvel has a problem with, well, keeping secrets. Just look at Captain America: Civil War . we found out about Robert Downey Jr..s return as Iron Man, the inclusion of Spider-Man, Spidey.s new suits, the new take on Falcon.s Redwing, and the Team Iron Man and Team Captain America divisions before they were announced by Marvel. In light of this continuous issue, Elizabeth Olsen mentioned that new steps are being taken to ensure secrecy. The actress, who was introduced into the McU as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron, spoke with USA Today about her experience on the film and her upcoming involvement in Civil War. When asked about the weirdest bit of secrecy she.s had to deal with, Olsen said, When you get the pages that you.re filming that day, you.re not allowed to take those home with »
Out promoting the Blu-ray/DVD release of "Avengers: Age of Ultron," actress Elizabeth Olsen spoke a bit more about the future of her character Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch. The actress reprises the role in the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War" and spoke with USA Today about the extreme levels of secrecy that Marvel went to on the set of that film to keep things under wraps:
"When you get the pages that you're filming that day, you're not allowed to take those home with you. They account for everyone at the end of the day and then they shred it. I took this one photograph, it was actually on ("Captain America: Civil War"). Barry, who's our security guy and is amazing, he can detect a paparazzi from like a 15-mile radius. He's incredible. Obviously he can't lock down public streets and bridges and things like that, but he locks down everything he can. »

Over the weekend, Elizabeth Olsen spoke with USA Today to promote the Blu-ray/DVD release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but of course she ended up offering some new and intriguing tidbits on the near future of her role as Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch. "It’s so crazy and mind-blowing being part of something that has that wide audience internationally," she enthused. "I am loving every time I get to go back to playing Scarlet Witch, and it is really nice to have the balance of doing something character driven and dramatic. It’s very technical, these Marvel movies." Having portrayed the Scarlet Witch twice, or rather three times counting her short and sweet debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, Olsen said she "absolutely" feels ownership of the character especially with her abilities. "I have a movement »
With its rather large roster of characters, many worry that Captain America: Civil War will make the titular character a secondary player in his own movie. Despite making claims about this not being the case already, Kevin Feige has reiterated that Captain America: Civil War is a Captain America movie.
“It is very much Cap’s story,” Feige told guests at an Avengers: Age of Ultron home entertainment release party. “It’s very much a sequel to The Winter Soldier. As that conflict builds, it is represented as a conflict between Cap and Tony.”
“There’s a lot of characters in The Winter Soldier, but it still felt like a very singular and relatively simple thrill ride,” he adds. “Cap, in Civil War, follows very much that same way. That something that we pride ourselves on. Our screenwriters — Chris Markus and Stephen McFeely — are excellent at giving each character just enough. »

Long before Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters, there were rumors that the Marvel Phase Two sequel would introduce Captain Marvel, although the character had not been cast yet. Just a few weeks before the release, producer Kevin Feige confirmed that Captain Marvel was in fact in an earlier version of the script, but they felt the time wasn't right to introduce her yet. If the studio had gone forward with introducing Carol Danvers, she would have appeared at the very end, in a scene where fans first meet the new Avengers, but executive producer Jeremy Latcham offered some more context as to why that didn't happen, during a Q&A session attended by Collider. He explains what the original ending should have been.
"In really early development there was a notion of there'd be a ton of new people. And then it was like, 'Well we haven't really introduced them, »
"Avengers? Assemble." Ok, so the quote got cut off as Joss Whedon brought his Avengers: Age of Ultron to a close, but the sentiment was there. Captain America (Chris Evans) looked out over his new team, which included Vision (Paul Bettany), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), War Machine (Don Cheadle), Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). But that now-famous scene was supposed to have a Lot more Marvel faces in it, and we.re finally finding out why the studio pulled back at the last minute. We have reported in the past that Captain Marvel and Quicksilver were options for the revamped roster at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. During a recent Blu-ray event held on behalf of Age of Ultron, though, Marvel Studios exec Jeremy Latcham said (via Collider) that the plan was always supposed to be bigger. then explained why it wasn.t. He said: »
Everyone pays attention to the end of Marvel movies. Even Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) was just saying she's curious to see how "Captain America: Civil War" ends -- and she's in the movie. Marvel endings set the stage for what's to come, and the most recent film -- "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" -- did just that by showing the new Avengers team: Cap and Black Widow preparing to train newbies War Machine, the Vision, Falcon, and Scarlet Witch.
However, as Collider just noted, this was not always the plan. At a Q&A to promote the new "Avengers" Blu-ray release, Marvel Studios's Jeremy Latcham said they had initially thought of ending the movie with shots of many new Marvel Cinematic Universe characters:
In really early development there was a notion of there'd be a ton of new people. And then it was like, 'Well we haven't really introduced them, »

We’ve been asked to reconsider our enjoyment of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron in the wake of the corporate shuffling that sees Kevin Feige reign supreme. Scuttlebutt has it the film was a disappointment to Walt Disney but one has to wonder how a global box office take of $1.4 billion (as of this weekend) can be a disappointment. Shot with a mammoth $250 million budget, the film needed to earn only about $800 million to be profitable (before licensing and ancillary revenue) so it has to be a financial success.
A critical success is something else. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it is 74% fresh although audiences liked it 86% of the time. Now yes, it is far lower than the 92% the first Avengers film did, but let’s face it, nothing like that had ever been tried on film and it worked beyond anyone’s expectations.
And the expectations were incredibly high »

This coming spring, Marvel will be asking us to choose a side as Phase Three of the McU kicks off with a bang with Captain America: Civil War, and taking part in a Q&A at the Edmonton Comic Expo, comic book legend Stan Lee has revealed whether his allegiance lies with Captain America or Iron Man.
“Whatever side Captain America was on, because he’s the best, pure-hearted person in the whole world,” said Lee (via Cbr). “By the way, he’s a great actor, too, the guy who plays Captain America does a beautiful job — Chris Evans. I say that because he likes me, and anyone who likes me is a great actor.”
Whose side are you on? Let us know in the comments below…

Tom Hiddleston has left England for a ride through the American South. In I Saw the Light, the British actor plays Hank Williams, the late legendary country singer-songwriter considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. He died in 1953 when he was just 29 years old from heart failure due to alcoholism and prescription drug abuse. The film, written and directed by Marc Abraham and set for release on Nov. 27, also stars Elizabeth Olsen as Hank's wife Audrey Mae Williams as well as Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones and David Krumholtz. "Everything about it was challenging," Hiddleston told E! News this summer at Comic Con. "I'm obviously not from the American South, not »
Poor Steve Rogers. Ever since he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s been speculation about when Captain America is going to shuffle of this mortal coil and pass on the shield to his successor.
Naturally, this has intensified now that both The Winter Soldier and Falcon are part of the McU and Chris Evans is nearing the end of his contract with Marvel Studios, and both Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie have been discussing whether they’d like to see their characters taking on the mantle of the Sentinel of Liberty.
“Myself,” Stan told the Salt Lake Tribune when asked who should take over from Evans. “I’ll say this: They sure like to dangle a cheese in front of my nose a lot. They’re like ‘Oh yeah, that’s where you pick up the shield,’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard that one before. There it is again. »

During an appearance at the Salt Lake Comic Con, Captain America star Chris Evans has been speaking about the rift between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) that ultimately leads to the titular Civil War in next year’s Phase Three-launching Captain America: Civil War.
The film will see the comic book’s Superhero Registration Act replaced by the Accords, government measures to control heroes and hold them accountable for their actions, with Cap opposing the measures and Iron Man in support of them.
“Tony actually thinks we should be signing these accords and reporting to somebody and Cap, who’s always been a company man and has always been a soldier, actually doesn’t trust anymore,” states Evans. “Given what happened in Cap 2, I think he kind of feels the safest hands are his own. »
