Avengers: Infinity War Actors Weren’t Given The Full Script

Is there anything more secretive than the details of a Star Wars or Marvel Cinematic Universe film? Probably, but that secret must be such a secret that we don’t even know it exists. Directors and actors involved in these projects live in terror that Mickey Mouse will hunt them down and lock them in Disney’s deepest, darkest dungeon should they accidentally reveal any details on a panel or in a routine interview. Con footage is kept from fans for months, and though the trailers often reveal too much, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm always have some tricks left up their sleeve.

One of the projects in Hollywood today most shrouded in secrecy is Avengers: Infinity War, the culmination of every MCU film that has come before. We’ve already heard about how Tom Holland was not given the entire script from the film, just scenes involving Spider-Man / Peter Parker. Now, we’ve learned that the youngest Avenger isn’t the only one not trusted with Marvel secrets.

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the film, revealed the lengths taken to keep Infinity War under wraps. After describing all the confidentiality agreements and other papers she had to sign, Olsen went on to say:

“This time, they actually decided not to give us scripts. They gave me my pages, then they explained other things that are happening.”

As to what her reaction will be when she finally gets to attend the premire:

“I’ll be so shocked and surprised. I’ll be like, ‘Oh, I see!’ That’s what was happening to the world at that time.”

One wonders if the real higher ups, like Robert Downey Jr., were perhaps given the full script, due to their utter importance and long track record of keeping Marvel’s secrets. It must be strange shooting a film without knowing what happens in the scenes between your own, and the like, but this is the world we live in. Now, if something Scarlet Witch specific slips, the Mouse knows who to hunt.
