Elizabeth Olsen recently spoke with USA Today to promote the home video release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron and of course was asked about her future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While speaking about playing the character of Wanda Maximoff, the actress enthusiastically said that it’s “so crazy and mind-blowing being part of something that has that wide audience internationally” and that she is “loving every time I get to go back to playing Scarlet Witch”.

When asked about her appearance in next year’s Captain America: Civil War, Elizabeth Olsen stated that Wanda is “coming into her own” in the film and “starting to understand and have conflict with how she wants to use her abilities” before going on to add the following about the film.

“It’s a dramatic conflict within her and obviously there’s conflict within the (Avengers) as well. I like that they didn’t release Scarlet Witch in the promo photos for the teams — it places her as being a wild card, and I like her having that kind of edge that people don’t know what she’s capable of. They can fear her because she is so incredibly powerful in a different way than the rest of the heroes for the most part. I like playing that role within the gang.”

At the end of Age Of Ultron fans were teased by a possible connection between two characters. When asked if there is there a chance that we could see a romance between Wanda and Paul Bettany’s The Vision in the future, Elizabeth Olsen commented briefly on the subject.

“It has to be House of M. That’s still all I want to do, I don’t care. I would just love to have make-believe children and have him play along with it and then just decide to destroy all mutants. That would be so fun but obviously that would never happen.”

While a direct adaptation of that story is nearly impossible for Marvel Studios to pull off due to character rights, there’s always the chance that we could see them play around with the basic concept somewhere down the line. Would that be a route you’d like to see them take the character? Let us know in the comments below.

The Scarlet Witch will have to choose a side when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
