Elizabeth Olsen finds it ’embarrassing’ to film Marvel scenes

Actress Elizabeth Olsen is a fixture in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Olsen, 33, has played “Scarlet Witch / Wanda Maximoff” in 6 MCU films as well as the hit series WandaVision, but still finds it a bit “embarrassing” to shoot some scenes for the superhero genre.

“It’s just silly,” Olsen told Variety. “There’s a lot of silly stuff. I always wish that one day they just put out a version of the film with no special effects because then you understand how ridiculous that feels. And how spectacular is the work that goes into making them.”

In particular, the actress said the more serious, more dramatic scenes are what she finds the most contradictory about filming.

“It’s very embarrassing to do things like that because the world depends on you doing it.”

Olsen referenced the special moment when she saw her co-star Paul Bettany’s character, Vision, die in Avengers: Infinity War.

“It was one of the last things we shot,” she told the outlet. “I felt very comfortable with him as an actor when we had to improvise that beat a bit. We tried to find it with [directors] the Russians are leading us.

“And I just remember giggling the rest of the day during [Thanos actor Josh] Brolin had his helmet on. And I don’t know. These movies are very silly, but you have to work your ass off to make them work.”

Olsen admitted that some of her character’s scenes are particularly pathetic to shoot, including her pretending to have special powers shooting out of her fingertips.

“Ugh, I do this in public. But you have a hand that stops something with energy,” she explained. “And then you have another hand pulling this fake thing out of this spotted face. And it’s painful and emotional.”
