'Avengers: Infinity War': Elizabeth Olsen wants a higher neckline for Scarlett Witch

Daveena Kataria Monday 07 May 2018

Ever since her first appearance during the post-credit scenes of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', Scarlett Witch has slowly but surely turned into one of the most powerful Marvel Cinematic Universe characters and that couldn't have proven truer in 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Actress, Elizabeth Olsen has always been pretty enthusiastic about her role, but she recently revealed one thing she's not as pleased with: her attire.

During an interview with Elle, the actress mentioned how she'd prefer to wear something a little less showy: "I like corsets, but I'd like it to be higher. Everyone has these things that cover them - Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) does, Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) does. I would like to cover up a bit".

"It's funny because sometimes I look around and I'm just like - wow, I'm the only one who has cleavage, and that's a constant joke because they haven't really evolved my superhero costume that much. But then you look at where it started in the comic books and it was a leotard and a headband so...oh, it's horrible, it's so horrible. So at least they know that's not cool", she continued.

Even though the corset is characteristic of Scarlett Witch in the comics, Olsen makes a valid point. It really doesn't make sense for the character to face off against Thanos in little more than a corset and basic trousers. Going back a few years, Andy Park, a well-known comic illustrator designed a few outfit concepts (as seen above) for Wanda in 'Captain America: Civil War', showed how easy it would be for the film version to remain true to the comic original without appearing in such a state of undress.

Female empowerment

The perfect time to unveil a new costume for the character would be in the possible all-female MCU spin-off film, in which Olsen would star alongside Thompson and the new addition, Brie Larson, who were the first advocates of the project. It's only been a few weeks since Olsen shared her enthusiasm for the film, even though she'd not heard of any plans thus far: "I have no idea what that pitch was, or who was there or when it was. I hope she threw my name in the mix", she stated.

'Infinity War' is in cinemas now!
