Yet another teaser video was released this week, this one looking at Black Widow, Agent 13, and Scarlet Witch.
ScarJo explains that Black Widow hasn’t entirely cut ties with Cap, but rather she’s trying to reason with him. This offers some much-needed clarification about Widow’s allegiance; given the relationship they built during TWS, Cap would need to screw up majorly to lose Widow’s loyalty.
Emily Vancamp, Agent 13, is relatively new to the MCU, having lived next to Cap (undercover) for a portion of TWS. We can look forward to much more of her character, and, more importantly, more badass fight scenes. This trailer shows us that she directly faces off against Bucky.
Elizabeth Olsen doesn’t tell us much about Wanda (who, by the way, is officially called Scarlet Witch this time, apparently Marvel finally bought the rights to her name, nice.), except that she is terrified of her powers. This makes sense after her brother’s death in AoU. One problem I have with Scarlet Witch is that she has too much power; if she wanted to, she would turn Civil War into a 4-minute movie by manipulating reality and ending it. Her having emotional reservation about her powers is the only way to justify why she doesn’t do just that.
