Avengers: Infinity War's Elizabeth Olsen has a problem with Scarlet Witch's costume

Avengers: Infinity War star Elizabeth Olsen has revealed that she has one problem with Scarlet Witch’s costume.

Olsen made her MCU debut in Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s post-credits scene, following it up with appearances in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, but it seems that something has been bugging her the whole time.

“I like corsets, but I’d like it to be higher. Everyone has these things that cover them – Tessa Thompson does, Scarlett [Johansson] does. I would like to cover up a bit,” she told Elle.

“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.”

Olsen added that she thinks the costume is about creating an “iconic” image, much like with Wonder Woman. “I think that’s the goal with the costumes, and it’s not representing the average woman,” she explained.

Before the release of Avengers: Infinity War, Olsen told Digital Spy that she wanted to bring Scarlet Witch and Vision’s crazy comics backstory to the screen.

In the comics, Scarlet Witch conceived twins via magic (which is probably the only option when your husband is a robot). “We would love to do that. The babies and the fake babies, and her going mad. I would love the opportunity to get to do that,” she enthused.

Avengers: Infinity War is in UK and US cinemas. Book tickets now.
