Elizabeth Olsen has picked her favourite Avengers film out of Infinity War and Endgame, describing 2018’s epic as her top pick from the Marvel offering.
The WandaVision actress played Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in three of the five Avengers films, as well as 2019’s Endgame and 2015’s Age Of Ultron.
In explaining her pick, which might seem controversial to some given the rather heartbreaking demise of Vision (Paul Bettany), plus, you know, the snap, Elizabeth said that she prefers Infinity War simply as she ‘experienced more’ of the action film and thus, feels more connected to it.
Elizabeth told Cinemablend, when asked if she was an ‘Infinity War girl, or Endgame girl’: ‘Well, I feel more connected to Infinity War because I got to experience more of it.’
The star’s alter-ego spent much of Endgame – which became the highest-grossing film of all time – apparently dead after being willed out of existence by villain Thanos in the final moments of Infinity War.
So, perhaps unsurprisingly, she was confused to be featured in the portal moment during the latest film’s climax, where everyone who had been ‘snapped’ were brought back to defeat Thanos once and for all.
She went on: ‘(In) Endgame, I was confused because I was like, “Where did I just come from?”‘
Still, Elizabeth, who has reunited with Paul’s Vision for the Disney Plus series based on their two Marvel characters, admitted that she found the famous scene that saw a number of Marvel heroes brought back to life ‘pretty fun’.
Her comments come ahead of the anticipated launch of WandaVision, to finally be released on Friday, which sees her character and Vision living in the suburban town of Westview.
If you’ve missed the movies we’ve just been waxing lyrical about above, though, never fear as Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige explained how the sitcom will make sense to audiences even if they haven’t seen any of MCU movies.
The producer recently explained: ‘If you haven’t seen any of them and just want to step into this weird thing because you love The Dick Van Dyke Show, it’s going to work.
‘But if you’ve been tracking the 23 movies we’ve made and following along the stories into Phase 4, there’ll be a wealth of rewards waiting for you as it all unfolds.’
WandaVision premieres on Disney Plus on Friday. All Marvel films are also available on Disney Plus.
