Sparks may fly in Avengers: Infinity War, especially for Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany). As per reports, the upcoming film may delve even further into the relationship between these characters. Could Infinity War finally introduce some romance between these two?
Avengers: Infinity War May Explore More Romance
To recount, 2016’s Captain America: Civil War already brought forth an inkling of a romantic relationship between Scarlet Witch and Vision. The film touched on some flirty moments between the two, though ultimately, it did not go anywhere. This was due to the nature of the film and its plot which saw Scarlet Witch and Vision siding with two different factions.
In any case, it looks like that may all change once Infinity War rolls in. As reports reveal, the upcoming film will finally delve into the romance between Scarlet Witch and Vision. For casual moviegoers, this might be a new development to get used to. However, longtime fans may already know that these two characters have quite the relationship in their original source material.
Scarlet Witch and Vision
As some fans may know, Scarlet Witch and Vision are actually romantically involved in the Marvel comics. In fact, they even culminate their relationship through marriage later on. Whether or not wedding bells may be in the picture for their Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) iterations is still unknown. Regardless, the prospect of their relationship being taken to the big screen is exciting news.
Elizabeth Olsen Confirms Romance in Avengers: Infinity War
Olsen, who portrays Scarlet Witch herself in the MCU, recently divulged some details regarding her character with regard to Vision. As the actress reveals, Infinity War will most definitely explore the romantic aspect of Scarlet Witch’s relationship with Vision.
“I think it’s safe to say that we now get to explore that part of the comic book,” Olsen shares. “We get to introduce and really explore their relationship. It creates a really exciting arc for me and I’m so lucky I get to work with (Paul) Bettany all the time now.”
The statements from Olsen only further confirm previous speculations of the romance manifesting in Infinity War. Previously, Olsen and Bettany were spotted seemingly rehearsing for Infinity War some months ago. Notably, paparazzi photos showed the two stars in the middle of a kiss. This suggested that such a scene may take place in Infinity War. With Olsen’s comments taken into account, it looks like fans can expect some romance between Scarlet Witch and Vision after all.
