With a recent interview with Elizabeth Olsen on playing her new Avengers character Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron, as well as director Joss Whedon, we learn a great deal about what we can expect from the new superhero!
"The most recent thing I learned - I don't even know if it has anything [to do with the film], it's just fun to read these comics - it's just so fun! Like, she's a 'nexus,' like she's the only human being from this universe who can communicate with paranormal things and the past and the future and other universes; like to me that's pretty incredible! [Laughs] Like just thinking about that is amazing! To touch things and know where they've been, that's crazy!"
Olsen also addressed the fact that Marvel is extremely secretive, and to just the extent they take things to ensure nothing is leaked
"Any time they give us a call sheet or any time there's a new draft, they have to shred our old papers. I don't think I'm allowed to say anything! And I'm too terrified. I really just feel like I'm doing something that's top secret and somehow has a lot more importance than anything else I've been around, so that alone is hilarious. I want to take a photo and send to my friends, not that I want to tweet or Instagram it, just for personal reasons-and I feel like I'm going to get in trouble if I take a photo on set!"
Joss Whedon also had information to add on the appearance of Scarlet Witch as well as her brother Quicksilver.
"Besides the fact that I grew up reading them, their powers are very visually interesting. One of the problems I had on the first one was everybody basically had punchy powers. [Quicksilver]'s got super speed. [Scarlet] can weave spells and a little telekinesis, get inside your head. There's good stuff that they can do that will help sort of keep it fresh."
KDramaStars also reports rumors of Magneto being referenced in the film by suggesting their father has a relation to magnets. Marvel has said they aren't allowed to mention characters or the word mutants, but after they've never said they can't subtly reference characters' connections to people with natural powers. Could this rumor hold up, or would Marvel not want to take the risk?
