Doing press junkets for films like Avengers: Infinity War can be really tough, because we don’t really want to hear anything that could spoil the experience, and the talent are equally as reluctant to give anything away.
Alas, we had fun interviewing Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Paul Bettany (Vision) to discuss this incredible blockbuster (we can say that now, we’ve seen it and it’s ace). We did push for some exclusives, mind you – as we asked Bettany if his character Vision has a willy (in those exact words, too). We did so because he’s involved in a romantic narrative with his co-star, and the pair discuss the joy in exploring this particular arc within the movie.
We also ask whether they ever get fanboyish on set when around all of the other Avengers, while they tell us who their favourite character is in the MCU. Finally they discuss what it’s like watching these movies back, and Olsen comments on rumours of a potential Scarlet Witch standalone movie. Turns out, like us, she’s rather keen on the idea.
Watch the full interview below:
ron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
Avengers: Infinity War is released on April 26th.
