Elizabeth Olsen drags ‘Empire Magazine’ for Photoshopping her ‘Avengers’ cover
Elizabeth Olsen, who portrays the Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is on the second of six covers with Guardians of the Galaxy’s Drax the Destroyer, Doctor Strange, and Dora Milaje commander Okoye. Olsen is almost unrecognizable due to apparent alterations to her photo on the cover. When comparing it to the other actors in the image (or any of the five other covers), it stands out considerably.
Taking to Instagram, Olsen posted a photo of the cover and noted, “Does this look like me?”

Actresses have often taken issue with the overuse of Photoshop and other retouching tools, publicly criticizing the magazines that they’ve appeared on for years. But Olsen isn’t the first Avenger to have her appearance drastically altered: Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow was over-edited for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, only instead of a magazine cover that occurred on a Marvel poster.
