One of the great romances throughout all of Marvel Comics history is the one shared between the Scarlet Witch and the Vision. After first serving together as Avengers, Wanda Maximoff and the synthezoid created by Ultron became an item and eventually married. Then they had twin boys named Tommy and Billy, who grow up to be members of the Young Avengers. But when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe versions of the characters, it’s uncertain whether we’ll see the two find a love connection in ‘Captain America: Civil War’, especially since they’re on opposing sides of this fight. Though it could happen, Elizabeth Olsen puts their relationship in different terms.
During a recent interview with Screen Rant, Olsen spoke about the connection between the Witch and Vision from the comics and the chances of that translating over to the big screen. The actress doesn’t really mention love as the driving factor, but rather there’s a different sort of force bringing the heroes together in the Russos’ upcoming Phase Three blockbuster:
“I think there’s something unique in the fact that her powers come from the same thing that powers him, and that is how we’ve made them have that kind of… that specifically in common, as opposed to it being something else that the comics kind of created, which has been pure romance. But they do have something uniquely special because of that.”
That’s a really interesting angle that I never really considered for the movies. It will definitely be cool to see how these two will deal with essentially “being born” from the Mind Stone. But again, as they are on opposing sides of this looming confrontation between Captain America and Iron Man, it probably won’t be something that’s heavily addressed until later on. Either way, I look forward to see how this element of the story develops as Phase Three progresses.
What do you think about Scarlet Witch and The Vision’s relationship in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Do you think that a romantic relationship will develop just as it did in the comics? Or do you feel like ‘Captain America: Civil War’ is the start of a whole different direction for these two characters that we haven’t seen before?
