Captain America: Civil War to be “darker”

Who do we believe? We’ve been told by the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) mastermind, Kevin Feige, that the MCU will never go dark. But now Scarlet Witch herself, Elizabeth Olsen, is saying otherwise. 

While attending the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light, Olsen talked about Captain America: Civil War and what to expect. 

“I was only there for five weeks of it, but we were all super stoked about it… Even though the Ultron robots are so intensely human because of its mind, we’re actually dealing with humans this time through and through,” Olsen told Collider. “There’s nothing scarier than something that’s like you being dangerous, so I think it’s darker and it’s fun. It’s really fun—it was so hard to shoot, but I think it’s gonna be a really interesting film.”

So there you have it. Olsen thinks this is going to be a dark and fun ride. 

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.

Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters May 6, 2016.
