Elizabeth Olsen says filming can be ’embarrassing’ on set

Elizabeth Olsen’s role as the Scarlet Witch in the MCU leaves her blushing at the “stupidity” of the superhero genre.

The ‘WandaVision’ star revealed that filming Marvel movies is “just silly” in general.

“That’s just silly. There’s a lot of silly stuff. I always wish that one day they would just release a version of the movie without any special effects, because then you understand how ridiculous it is,” Olsen said. “And how spectacular the work is to make them.”

Without special effects, Olsen said the more serious dramatic scenes can be “embarrassing” to film, especially like watching on-screen love interest Vision (Paul Bettany) perish in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“It’s very embarrassing to shoot this stuff, because, like, the world depends on you,” Olsen said. “It was one of the last things we shot. I felt really comfortable with him as an actor if we had to improvise that rhythm a bit. We were trying to find it, with [directors] the Russos guiding us. And I just remember chuckling the rest of the day, as [Thanos actor Josh] Brolin had his helmet on. And I don’t know. These movies are very silly, but you have to pretend to make them work.
