CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Will Include Another New Avenger

     April 23, 2015


Captain America: Civil War may be the third film of the hero’s string of solo movies, but Chris Evans is getting a lot of super-powered company in this one. We’ve got Robert Downey Jr. bringing in Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie returning as Falcon, Jeremy Renner stepping in as Hawkeye and Chadwick Boseman introducing Black Panther, but that’s not all. Elizabeth Olsen just revealed that Scarlet Witch will be in the mix as well.

According to CBM, while participating in a filmmaker Q&A at the Apple Store in London with Joss Whedon, Olsen confirmed that she begins shooting Captain America: Civil War in two weeks and added the following:

“I guess I’m allowed to talk about that now.”

As someone who doesn’t know all that much about Scarlet Witch and where she’s heading, it’s a little disappointing to know that she’s making it through Avengers: Age of Ultron. No, I didn’t really think she’d meet her demise after a single film, but knowing does take away a good deal of the thrill.

Shortly after coming across the Scarlet Witch/Civil War news, a new Age of Ultron featurette popped up and sadly, I suspect it says a bit too much about what Scarlet Witch will face in the second Avengers movie and why she’s making her way into Civil War. You can check out the new Avengers: Age of Ultron featurette for yourself below. Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1st and Captain America: Civil War is due to arrive on May 6, 2016.
