Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has one request going forward - she'd like her costume to not be just a cleavage corset.' The actor, who most recently reprised her role in Avengers: Infinity War, says that she wants a costume that goes a little higher' in the next movie.
"I like corsets,' Olsen told Elle, "but I'd like it to be higher. Everyone has these things that cover them Tessa Thompson does, Scarlett (Johansson) does. I would like to cover up a bit. It's funny because sometimes I look around and I'm just like wow, I'm the only one who has cleavage, and that's a constant joke because they haven't really evolved my superhero costume that much, she continued. "But then you look at where it started in the comic books and it was a leotard and a headband so...oh, it's horrible, it's so horrible. So at least they know that's not cool.
But she realises that these characters are meant to honour their appearances in the comic books that inspired them, and not necessarily to represent the average woman'. She brought up the controversy surrounding Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume, which was said to be too revealing.
"But then they made Wonder Woman, you know? And that's what she's in, Olsen added. "I think of the costumes and what we have to wear it's more about iconic images, because that's what these movies are... I think that's the goal with the costumes, and it's not representing the average woman.
But as talks of a female-only Marvel movie gain steam, Olsen believes the future of her character lie in able hands. "That's why I like working with Marvel, she said, "because its almost like they're not trying to slap anyone over the head with it, but they recognize that they have such a huge platform, and they're using it to be as inclusive as they can with their storylines and representing the world. That's why (Black) Panther felt like such a huge thing in culture, and they're aware of it, and their goal is to not make the same stories that have happened over and over and over again. I think that's why the movies continue to be successful from a story and tone point of view.
Avengers: Infinity War broke the record for the biggest worldwide debut of all time, with a $640 million gross, including $258 million in the US and Rs 147 crore in India, enough to make it the biggest Hollywood debut in the country.
