Elizabeth Olsen says Scarlet Witch would kick Loki’s ass


While the Toronto International Film Festival isn’t a hot spot for geek culture in the same way that San Diego Comic-Con or D23 Expo are, it certainly is a space where the who’s who of Hollywood congregate. It’s certainly not rare to see the familiar faces lent to our favourite superheroes on the silver screen promoting their smaller films at the festival. This is what actors Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Hiddleston were doing for their new film, I Saw the Light, when an interviewer from The Hollywood Reporter asked who would best who in a fight, Loki or Scarlet Witch?

Both Olsen and I Saw the Light‘s director Marc Abraham were quick to say Wanda Maximoff would come out on top. Not one to go down without a fight, Hiddleston countered that Loki’s god status would be difficult to trump.

All in all, it would be hard to say. It’s not clear whether or not Loki truly is immortal in Marvel’s cinematic universe or merely extremely resilient. Meanwhile, the full extent of Wanda’s powers weren’t really explored in Avengers: Age of Ultron; she could easily have many more tricks up her sleeve. She got inside Thor’s head, who’s to say she can’t do even more damage to an Asgardian with even worse daddy issues?

You can watch the video here and catch I Saw The Light in theatres November 27th.
