Elizabeth Olsen made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Scarlet Witch in this past summer’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and will go on to play the character again in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. In previous interviews, Olsen has been plenty vocal about just how excited she is to be back for the role and what she’ll bring this time around.
She was shown only briefly in the first Civil War trailer, and even though she joined the Avengers last we saw, Olsen has teased [playing both sides](https://mcuexchange.com/elizabeth-olsen-teases-scarlet-witch-in-captain-america-civil-war/ in Civil War). She has also said it’s “darker” and could be “the best one” yet. Now while speaking with Comic Book Resources, she addressed what it’s like working with such talented people.
CBR News: When working on films like “Civil War,” what do you like about the huge level of production and those kind of opportunities?
Elizabeth Olsen: It’s movie magic! You step on set, and you get to work with the best of the best. These people go and they end up working on something smaller in between a lot of times. You get to work with the best DPs, you get to work with the best camera operators. You get to work with the best stunt people. You get to work with the best costume designers. It’s just cool because you’re around so much talent.
It’s also a whole other learning experience of how to perform in those kinds of films, because it is different. Many people say that it’s the same preparation, it’s the same character development, it’s the same that kind of work, but on set, it’s just different. It’s just larger, it’s not intimate, it’s just different.
To watch [Robert] Downey and [Chris] Hemsworth and Scarlett [Johansson] and [Chris] Evans and [Mark] Ruffalo and watch how they deal with that and kind of absorb that information, I feel like I get a little master class every day.
Elizabeth Olsen is one of the newer and younger members of the MCU, so hopefully as a New Avenger, her role in Captain America: Civil War will be big. Based on previous reports, I could see Scarlet Witch losing her ability to control her powers after the international incident.
Captain America: Civil War is scheduled to hit theaters May 6, 2016.
