Scarlet Witch Will Be A “Wild Card” In Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War has just wrapped up from their filming location in Atlanta, and fans are eager to find out anything new about Marvel’s first movie into Phase 3. Last month we got to see a couple of concept art that revealed Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America’s (Chris Evans) team. But two characters were left out from the images; that is Marvel’s version of Spider-Man, and the recently introduced character from Avengers: Age of UItron – Scarlet Witch. For now, it’s anyone’s guess on which team the two will be on, but one of the stars might give us a clue on what her character will become in Civil War.

In an interview with MTV about her latest film “I Saw the Light”, Elizabeth Olsen revealed some details about her character’s state in the next Marvel film and why Scarlet Witch was not featured in the concept art.

 "She’s OK. She’s doing alright.” Olsen said. “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."

From what it looks like, it seems that her state as a wild card will play a big role in the film considering that her powers are well beyond what other heroes can manage. But this does suggest that she will be switching sides during the movie, and whatever team she picks will have a big advantage with her on their side. As for her powers, Olsen tells MTV that Scarlet Witch will have a huge transformation in the film, which tells us that she will have a much more powerful ability than when we last saw her in Age of Ultron.

"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."

There was a rumor earlier this month that Scarlet Witch will be responsible for the event that results in the passing of the Superhuman Registration Act, leading to Civil War. This was never confirmed however, but photos from the filming location show her and Captain America chasing Crossbones, who was wearing what seems like a vest packed with explosives. Whether this scene will lead to the disaster that split the Avengers apart, we’ll just have to wait and see. Captain America: Civil War will open to theaters on May 6th, 2016.
