Bit too much skin? Elizabeth Olsen not pleased with her cleavage-revealing Scarlet Witch costume in Avengers
The Marvel actress pointed out how fellow colleagues of her character Wanda Maximoff, including Valkyrie and Black Widow, are more covered up, costume wise.
Without the reddish hue and her body-hugging corset costume, Scarlet Witch will almost be unrecognizable in the Avengers series. And actress Elizabeth Olsen, who brings this character to life, is very much aware of this fact. However, she wishes that her corset costume would be a little less revealing.
Explaining her reasons, the Marvel actress even pointed out how the fellow colleagues of her character Wanda Maximoff, including Valkyrie and Black Widow, are more covered up than her magical powers-wielding MCU superhero.
And if she could, she would add some minor alterations to the costume, which undoubtedly has become quite iconic amongst the fans of the Avengers franchise.
“It would just not be a cleavage corset. I like corsets, but I’d like it to be higher," the 29-year-old actress, who recently starred alongside a star-heavy cast in Marvel's Infinity War, told about her superhero costume to Elle.
She reasoned, "Everyone has these things that cover them — Tessa Thompson does, Scarlett [Johansson] does. I would like to cover up a bit."
According to Olsen, the cleavage-revealing outfit throughout the length and breadth of the movie is proof that her superhero's costume hasn't really evolved much. Indeed, Infinity War comes after a bunch of Avengers movies, including the ones where Olsen-played Scarlet Witch has made an appearance, teaming up with the mighty Marvel heroes to prevent any crisis.
Having said so, though, the actress admitted that there's a great deal of comic book legend associated with the cinematic portrayal of her character. And that, it's hardly representative of the modern woman.
"I think of the costumes and what we have to wear — it’s more about iconic images, because that's what these movies are... I think that's the goal with the costumes, and it's not representing the average woman," Olsen argued.
The actress might not be a fan of her costume, but at the same time she suggests that this difference in opinion doesn't come in the way of her collaboration with Marvel.
Avengers: Infinity War arrived in the theaters over the weekend, on April 27.
