Elizabeth Olsen In Cannes Is A Great Reminder That She Should Get Her Own Superhero Movie
Forgive me while I go a little geek on you here for a minute. I love all of the superhero movies these days and one of my favorite characters is Scarlet Witch. Not just in the movies, but just in general when it comes to comic book characters.
She’s incredibly powerful and has a pretty cool backstory. So when Elizabeth Olsen was cast to play the part in the Marvel Cinematic Universe I was very stoked.
Not only do I love the character, I am also a big fan of Elizabeth Olsen. I don’t think she gets the credit she deserves yet.
So, by my way of thinking, with such a rich backstory, and if characters I, personally, consider to be kind of meh like Captain Marvel, Cyborg and Shazam are getting their own movies, I think Olsen as Scarlet Witch should get one too. (Oh, and so should Black Widow, hello?)
Seeing Olsen promoting her latest film in Cannes the other day just served as another reminder that, despite my wishes, it most assuredly won’t ever happen. Sad.
Oh well, at least we’re not done seeing her in the Avengers movies yet.
