Elizabeth Olsen has plans for her MCU future, including working with the X-Men when they enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She wants Magneto, played by Sir Ian McKellen, to be the Scarlet Witch’s father.
In a recent interview with Geek Culture, Olsen said that she wants Ian McKellen’s Magneto to be her father. When asked who she wanted, Olsen replied:
“Oh I’m gonna go with Sir Ian McKellen. I had the biggest crush on him. He’s in these videos called Playing Shakespeare where actors get together and they do a Shakespeare…It’s a video series. He’s like the sexiest man in the world so I would say Sir Ian McKellen.”
McKellen saw the interview and likes the concept as well. In his Facebook reaction, the actor stated:
“If I had a daughter, I’d hope she’d be like Elizabeth. A treat to be her Daddy!”
It’s a fun little exchange between actors but the Scarlet Witch and Magneto being related scenario is something they can explore if they choose to.
At one point, Magneto found the orphaned Wanda and her brother Pietro (Quicksilver) and believed that their unexplained powers were the result of them being mutants. He recruited them into the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and they served on that team as sort of reluctant villains when they made their debut in 1964’s “X-Men” #4, which was by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. They worked alongside Magneto for a brief time before leaving the Brotherhood and redeeming themselves by becoming members of the Avengers.
