Massive spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame. If you haven’t seen the latest MCU movie, look away!
It’s been two weeks since Avengers: Endgame arrived in theaters, and moviegoers still have recovered from the movie’s wild ride. The Russo Brothers once again did the impossible, crafting a complicated and character-driven movie that shattered expectations. The affects of Infinity War allowed the co-directors to focus on the original members of the team, while eventually allowing the dusted characters to pop back up.
In the preceding movie, Thanos succeeded in gathering the Infinity Stones and wiping out half of all life. But ahead of Endgame‘s release, most fans assumed the dusted characters would be brought back to life. That eventually happened thanks to the time heist and Bruce Banner, and the fallen traveled to the Avengers Compound for one final battle. This included Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, and now the actress has revealed a cool behind the scenes video as as thank you to the fandom. Check it out.
Wanda Maximoff may have been down, but she wasn’t out. The magical Avenger returned to face back off against Thanos in Endgame, and it was one of many epic moments during the final battle sequence.
This new clip, which comes from Elizabeth Olsen’s Instagram page, shows some of the work that went into Scarlet Witch’s long awaited reunion with the Mad Titan. During the epic final battle at the remains of the Avengers Compound, the new Gauntlet was passed around to quite a few heroes, attempting to keep it away from Thanos and transport the Infinity Stones back in time. When Thanos nearly caught up with Black Panther, Wanda suddenly appeared and brought some pain to Josh Brolin’s signature villain.
Of course, that Mad Titan wasn’t actually the Thanos that she faced off against during Infinity War. Instead, it was Thanos from 2014, who had never met any of the heroes he was facing off against. But that didn’t matter to Scarlet Witch, who used her telekinetic abilities to beat the crap out of the big purple guy. Her power was significant enough that she broke Thanos’ sword (which was strong enough to destroy Cap’s vibranium shield), and he eventually called for fire from above because he feared for his life.
Scarlet Witch obviously didn’t have much to do in Endgame besides the big battle and Tony Stark’s funeral, but relationship with Vision was a significant subplot in Infinity War. Her powers also continue to grow with each appearance, so it should be interesting to see what comes next for Elizabeth Olsen’s Marvel heroine.
Both Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are expected to reprise their roles in WandaVision, a developing miniseries for Disney+. The upcoming streaming service will help to expand the MCU, including the big name talent from the films. Vision died during Infinity War and Olsen has teased the show might be set in ’50s. So really, the WandaVision could go anywhere.
You can catch Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Endgame, which is in theaters now. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
