With all of the cast members reporting to set and speculation of who the mo-cap actors are playing, it’s hard to keep track of all the news coming out about Avengers: Infinity War—currently ComicBook.com's 2nd Most Anticipated Movie.
We previously learned that Josh Brolin’s Thanos would have some backup when he goes against the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy. As the actors are currently shooting on location in Edinburgh, Scotland, we’ve seen portions of the battles that are sure to showcase in the forthcoming film.
Now Elizabeth Olsen has been seen at the shoot, pulling off some chaos magic as the Scarlet Witch.
She’s going up against some presumed members of the Black Order, it appears, as we’ve been able to make out Corvus Glaive’s trademark staff being wielded by one of the mo-cap actors.
Olsen’s stunt double was spotted previously, but now she’s on hand for what should be a substantial portion of the film. Vision actor Paul Bettany was previously spotted, and now with Scarlet Witch on hand we’ll probably see continued development of the two characters’ relationship.
Will Thanos’ goons get their grubby alien mitts on the Vision’s Mind Stone? Or will Scarlet Witch prevent them from accessing it from her teammate? And if the bad guys do succeed, what will that mean for the Vision?
We’ll learn more when Avengers: Infinity War releases in theaters May 4, 2018.
