Elizabeth Olsen Reveals Why 'Scarlet Witch' Is CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR's "Wild Card"

Why didn't we see Scarlet Witch in that "Team Cap" and "Team Iron Man" Captain America: Civil War promo art a few weeks back? Well, Elizabeth Olsen weighs in on that here and shares some details on how the character's powers have developed since Avengers: Age of Ultron...

After the loss of her brother in Avengers: Age of Ultron, we last saw Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch joining Captain America's New Avengers team. We know she'll be "Team Cap" in Captain America: Civil War thanks to some leaked trailer screengrabs, and while the most likely explanation for her not being in the leaked promo art is because of licensing issues with Fox (who can also use the character in their X-Men movies), Olsen had a very different take on why that might be. "She’s OK. She’s doing alright. She’s confused, she’s conflicted. She’s found some people she thinks she connects with, but she’s doing alright. They released images of Team Cap and Team Iron Man. She wasn’t there. She’s always the wild card. I like being the wild card."

The wild card? There are those who believe that the Scarlet Witch may be at least partly responsible for whatever disaster kicks off the need for the Superhuman Registration Act in Captain America: Civil War, though Olsen could be subtly hinting that Wanda will end up switching teams. We'll just have to wait and see. As for how the character's powers will have advanced since we last saw her, Olsen confirmed that she's been working with Avengers: Age of Ultron movement coach Jennifer White to show that there's been some changes. "It’s not a new hand technique per say. We’re trying to grow her movement as a whole… Jenny and I have great pride in trying to make this a huge transformation — the next time we see her — of her abilities."
