The Russo brothers have revealed what happened to Scarlet Witch’s accent in Avengers: Infinity War .

Scarlet Witch (also known as Wanda Maximoff and played by Elisabeth Olsen) was introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron as a Sokovian orphan with a heavy Eastern European accent.

Since then, Wanda’s accent has faded with every subsequent Marvel movie in which she has appeared, seemingly vanishing altogether in the recently released Infinity War.

 And, in a recent appearance on the Sad Happy Confused podcast , the directing duo finally cleared up the reason behind the change.

“Cap, we’ve seen Chris Evans walk around in public with a beard and no-one recognises him.

“There are simple things you can do to your appearance that take about 90% of your visibility away, and for us it was very intentional that we would just keep stripping that accent down to show her acclimating and hiding.”

There you have it, folks.
