It's notable that art of Scarlet Witch appeared after Feige removed Perlmutter and the creative committee (both of which I believe were firmly opposed to Wanda being in the MCU at all).
That doesn't really hold up though, since as was pointed out, Scarlet Witch merchandise was produced as far back as 2015. And given the amount of time it takes to actually produce an action figure, the stuff for Civil War was likely signed off on when Perlmutter was still in charge as well.

This whole situation was really confusing. Because no, they didn't actually completely remove Wanda from all the CW merch. In this Lego set you can see both SW and Agent13 present.


At first I thought, maybe there were problems with Olsen's contract and they weren't sure she would appear in the movie, but judging by early storyboards and concept art, that is not the case either. And she is part of the reason for the Accords happening. I remember back in 2015 some guy claimed he worked for merch department and that Spidey and SW were absent due to the problems with their rights. But it was only one guy. Idk.

Anyway, hope she appears all over the place going forward.

what happened to her role? On another thread someone mentioned how BW hijacked the role/storyline that Sharon originally had for Winter Soldier.

As I posted previously, that's not even the only instance of her being in merchandise for the film.

There were definitely rights issues with Spider-Man. His figures were not allowed to be released unless they were part of a boxed set with other characters, something that was backed up by someone at Funko (during a livestream an employee mentioned they were not allowed to do solo releases of Spider-Man merchandise for the movie). He was also, notably, the only costumed character from the film who did not get a Hot Toys figure, despite his popularity in Asia.



Whatever it is, that specific issue did not seem to apply to Scarlet Witch. Whatever licensing issues affected Spider-Man were obviously the result of two different studios collaborating on a film, whereas as far as I know, Fox has literally nothing to do with any of the MCU films.

Yes, and still SW was absent on all the CW early promo art. They've even gone to the point of cutting her out of some concept art, which was used on some merch:




All of this is really weird.

Weird yeah, but also I don't remember seeing that concept art in the CW buildup. Very nice

I felt like Lego was the only thing that consistently had her. That and the official movie posters. When I went to the Disney Store after I saw Civil War, nothing had Wanda on it. They had posters, sweat shirts, water bottles, etc all with Sharon on them instead. It's too deliberate not to be a licensing thing, IMO. No offense to Sharon fans but Wanda from a merch standpoint would be a bigger seller.

I just hope she's on more stuff for IW, because it's going to be annoying if she's the only woman not featured since Marvel has all the rights to the other ladies.

We don't know. It could still be attached to Thor for all we know. But Star Wars would be the latest bet.

Seems like Thor really has gotten a full makeover. With a new weapon, and new haircut, AND (Ragnarok spoilers)

He's shown using something that looks like an ax in the early Infinity War concept art.

Speaking to Screen Rant, Feige was quizzed on the spoiler-ish nature of the title, and was asked whether we’d have to wait until Infinity War for it to finally be unveiled.

“Yeah, I think some of that has been blown out of proportion,” he said. “We do want the focus to be on Infinity War for now.” While this isn’t exactly a denial that the fourth film’s title could be a spoiler for Infinity War, it does seem as though Marvel may simply be holding back in order to keep fans focused squarely on the next Avengers sequel rather than one still several movies away.

It's not also known as that though. Nobody says they own a property just because they have distribution rights. It's like saying that Paramount owned the Iron Man property. He's just plain wrong, and as is often the case with actors, probably just doesn't really know what he's talking about. Disney probably go out of their way to not hammer home the fact that they can technically make a Hulk movie any time they want.

I won't post the link, but to anyone interested in googling it, there's a leaked screenshot of what I presume is the soon to be released trailer. It shows a very battle-worn Cap in what looks like Wakanda. Scraggly hair and beard present.

Put it in spoilers in case people were unaware of this.

EDIT: and by "soon to be released", I mean "before the end of the year."

Given the grainy picture quality and the fact that it's from a scene that was already in the leaked SDCC trailer, I'm pretty sure that was just a screengrab from that which someone enlarged.
