Elizabeth Olsen has never liked comic books

Feb 14 2014, 9:20am CST | by

Elizabeth Olsen has never been a fan of comic books.

The 24-year-old actress plays Scarlet Witch in the upcoming superhero movie 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' and, although she admits she's never really been one to read a comics, she insists she had heard of her alter-ego before she was handed the role.

She told Total Film magazine: "I'm not much of a comic book person. I like comic book movies but my brother [Trent, a screenwriter] is the comic book guy. If I'm having a meeting, I ask my brother to tell me about it. But of course I'd seen 'The Avengers'! I've seen all the Marvel movies. I love those movies.

"Marvel keep the fantastical qualities but create something as realistic as they can make for this world. There's something genuinely broken. Everyone has their Achilles' heel."

The screen star admits she doesn't know how she managed to secure herself the role in the Marvel movie, but doesn't think the director, Joss Whedon, hired her to wear racy outfits like the ones in the comic.

She explained: "I don't know how I got the job, but now I have it, and we're creating it. It's been a really fun process. We're being aware of the comic books but also doing our own thing."

She added: "We've done some costume stuff. My favourite piece is my secrecy cloak that prevents anyone from seeing what I'm wearing. There's a hood and a robe. It protects the image.

"I don't think Joss ever would have hired me, honestly, if he wanted me to wear those (racy) outfits. I am not a professional athlete, nor am I a model. Wearing those costumes wouldn't be fun for anyone who wasn't those things. He already had a different idea."

Charlie Hunnam cast as Guy Ritchie's King Arthur

Aug 27 2014 8:34pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

We’ve known for a while that Guy Ritchie has been trying to get his version of King Arthur going (though perhaps not as the six feature films originally intended).  Things got a bit more real last month when Idris Elba was cast as a “Merlin-esque figure who trains and mentors Arthur.”  Now it appears as though they may have cast Arthur himself in the form of Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy).  In addition, Elizabeth Olsen (Godzilla, Martha Marcy May Marlene) is said to b ...

John Carter is so bad

Mar 9 2012 1:23pm CST | Source: FourFour

It is unconscionable in 2012 for a movie to portray a white dude who infiltrates a non-white native culture and then turns out to be better at being a native than even the natives are. We've seen it for years, we saw it in Avatar and now we see this straight up white supremacy in John Carter. The title character, a former captain of the Confederate fucking Army, is ported over to Mars, where he encounters a race of four-armed green mons ...
