A new Avengers: Infinity War behind-the-scenes video teases a big action sequence for Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch. The video is pretty short, but teases some major stunt work for Olsen. Scarlet Witch has played a major role in Infinity War teasers so far, so it will be interesting to see how this wire work will be used in the final film.
The post also serves as a celebration for Olsen, who has apparently just wrapped up her work on Infinity War, an ordeal that lasted a staggering nine months. “9 months later... This Witch is out,” Olsen appended to her post.
Scarlet Witch appeared numerous times in the Infinity War trailer released this November. The character is expected to play a romantic interest opposite Paul Bettany’s Vision. She can also be seen seemingly going toe-to-toe with a barely discernible Proxima Midnight, though that could be a bit of misdirection on the trailer’s behalf. Whatever Infinity War holds for Scarlet Witch, the behind-the-scenes teaser suggests it will be high-flying and filled with crimson psionic energy.
