Last week, we reported that actress Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, will reprise her role in Marvel's next superhero adventure, Captain America: Civil War. The news came from producer Kevin Feige himself, while promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron. But in case you had any reason to doubt his statements, the actress confirmed that she will be in the first Phase Three adventure. Here's what she had to say during a Meet the Filmmakers Q&A in London earlier today.
"I guess I'm allowed to talk about that now."
While the actress wouldn't elaborate on how large or small Scarlet Witch's role is in Captain America: Civil War, Elizabeth Olsen did mention at the event that she starts filming in two weeks in Atlanta. Her character was also mentioned in a report from March that also revealed that unconfirmed characters such as Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and a "fourteen-year-old Peter Parker" will be featured in Captain America: Civil War. Those who have been confirmed as a part of the story include Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Crossbones (Frank Grillo), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are directing Captain America: Civil War from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The story is based on Mark Millar's Civil War comic books, which pits Captain America and Iron Man on opposite sides of the Superhero Registration Act, forcing anyone with super powers to register themselves with the government, where they will join a global police force.
