The actress admitted she would prefer more modesty in her superhero outfit.

Elizabeth Olsen has a little costume envy for her Avengers: Infinity War co-stars.

The actress, who plays Scarlet Witch in the blockbuster, shares that she regrets the more revealing nature of her outfit in the film and, if she had a choice, she would alter it.

“It would just not be a cleavage corset,” she explains to Elle. I like corsets, but I'd like it to be higher. Everyone has these things that cover them -- Tessa Thompson does, Scarlett [Johansson] does. I would like to cover up a bit.”

“It's funny because sometimes I look around and I'm just like, ‘Wow, I'm the only one who has cleavage,’ and that's a constant joke because they haven't really evolved my superhero costume that much,” Olsen, 29, continues. “But then you look at where it started in the comic books and it was a leotard and a headband -- it's horrible -- so at least they know that’s not cool.”


Olsen goes on to note how in the Wonder Woman films, the female hero sports such leotards and headbands and suggested filmmakers were striving to present “iconic” images of such characters, rather than representing everyday women.

“I think of the costumes and what we have to wear, it’s more about iconic images, because that's what these movies are ... I think that's the goal with the costumes, and it's not representing the average woman," she says.
