Relationships are fraying in "Captain America: Civil War," in theaters Friday.

Captain America (Chris Evans) is committed to defending humanity without government oversight, while his former buddy Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) wants the opposite. A feud brews, and the crew comes together to pick sides. At the center of the battle: wild-card Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, otherwise known as Scarlet Witch, whose gifts of hypnosis and telekinesis are immense but also somewhat uncontrollable.

"She's figuring it out. It's going to be fun to see how they develop her," says Olsen. "She's really powerful."

The film is poised to be massive, but Olsen isn't sweating it. "It doesn't change (your life) much. You put yourself into those positions, I think. Obviously you get more work opportunities," says Olsen, not one to expose her unduly on social media or the club scene.

Ask Olsen what of herself she sees in Wanda, and she hedges, given her character's fiery internal conflict. "I like keeping that to myself, always," says Olsen. "You have to have some sort of connection personally that grounds you. When you play dark characters, you have to pull from real things."

She comes across as exceedingly normal and approachable. The same applies to her off-screen life. "I'm working really hard on going to restaurants more," says Olsen. "My friends are so through with coming over to my house. I'm trying to go out more."

An item on her social agenda was asking Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, to go to see the film with her.

"I tried to get him to go to the screening with me but he was enjoying being at his house with his kid," says Olsen.

"I just wrapped a movie with Jeremy. It's a hard shoot, a lot of elements that made it really challenging. I have no idea how it's going to turn out," says Olsen. "It's called 'Wind River.' It takes place on a (Native American) reservation. There's a missing girl who's found dead, raped, and they call in a federal agent, who happens to be me."
