At this point in the game, Marvel Studios has their plate pretty damn full. They have a handful of films still set to hit in the next couple years, and beyond that, they have a few other franchises that are set to have follow-up films (Doctor Strange, Guardians, Thor, Spider-Man: Homecoming). But what’s the possibilities of some of the newer characters getting their own films?
I’m talking about the second team of Avengers — the likes of Falcon, Vision, and of course, Scarlet Witch. Would any of those characters be suitable for a standalone film? Let’s look at Scarlet Witch, specifically, who would be joining a practically nonexistent slate of female-led superhero films. Would actress Elizabeth Olsen be interested in seeing a film with her?
Metro asked her that very question, and she gave an interesting response.
“I would love to [do a standalone], and I would love it to be House Of M, which is a comic book series of The Vision and Scarlet Witch having a make-believe family. She [Wanda] believes she has twin children – she alters her own reality to believe that, but really she has a miscarriage and Vision goes along with it. ‘Then they [Vision and her family] have to tell her that she was make-believing the entire time, and she has a very traumatic experience and screams, and kills all the mutants – but that’s an X-Men story so we’d have to adjust the ending.”
Of course, like many Marvel movies these days, this isn’t really a standalone film concept as it is a huge crossover event like Captain America: Civil War. But still, it’s a unique concept, and it really could go on to show the true potential and danger of someone like Scarlet Witch on the Avengers team.
This response comes on the heels of her pretty much saying she’s not sure a standalone is in the cards, so it makes sense that she’d go with more of a crossover-type story.
