“Captain America: Civil War” will get to see a lot of Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s superhero alter ego (Tom Holland) will have more screen time than first thought. Plus, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will not only develop friendship with Vision (Paul Bettany), she will also be close to Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).

Spidey was first reported to have only cameo role in the third “Captain America” film. However, Screencrush’s Mike Sampson has recently debunked that rumour and said the web-slinging teen will take a good portion of screen time.

That’s approximately 30 minutes total of the reported 146 minutes running time of the film. For a film that not only stars the titular character (Chris Evans), but is also shared by practically most of his “Avengers” teammates, hogging 30 minutes of screen time means the character is playing a major arc.

Meanwhile, Olsen has revealed more about her character’s relationship with both Vision and Hawkeye. She recently told ET that Wanda and Vision will have “some really sweet moments” together. The 27-year-old American actress did not mention if the two newly recruited Avengers superheroes will have romantic relationship, though it wouldn’t be unlikely as the two were married in the comic books.

In the film, though, Wanda will also get close to Hawkeye, who, as it can be remembered in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” was the one who helped her calm down and told her to fight with the Avengers. Her twin brother, Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), also died saving Hawkeye and a civilian boy. So it’s just natural for Wanda to incline toward the master archer.

“She feels betrayed by everyone, but when Haweye returns, she follows his lead because their relationship in between films has grown,” Olsen said in a press release. “She trusts him and he almost has become like a surrogate brother to her, and she feels like he’s going to protect her and not mess with her.”

She described the Hawkeye-Scarlet relationship as a really good pairing as they use each other’s assets to better themselves. “With Scarlet Witch, it’s more about Hawkeye’s leadership and big brother attitude that she needs more than his abilities. Her abilities have also grown, and she is just probably the most formidable on the team,” she explained.

Renner agreed, saying, “I think Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch need each other in a lot of ways. Hawkeye needs her abilities for a lot of things and then she needs him to help her keep her head straight. She’s kind of a loose cannon, insecure and powerful, but that dynamic is terrifying in itself.”

As for Wanda’s relationship with Vision, Olsen said it’s a “big plot point in the film.” Although the two characters are married in the comic books, Olsen said the Marvel Cinematic Universe oftentimes differs from them. She said the two will have “great friendship and trust” between them.

Director Joe Russo said Vision will start feeling affection for Scarlet as the movie progresses, and that will complicate things for the Avengers.

“Captain America: Civil War” will hit theatres a week early in Australia on April 29 and in New Zealand on April 28. It will open in the US on May 6.
