Is a romance beginning to blossom between Scarlet Witch and Loki? Rumors of a romance between Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, 26, and Tom Hiddleston, 34, began back in May when Us Weekly reported the two were romantically involved. Neither Elizabeth nor Tom confirmed the rumored romance. Olsen was engaged to Boyd Holbrook, but she broke off the engagement in January after three years of dating.
On Thursday, the romance rumors began swirling again after Olsen and Hiddleston were seen leaving the Wolseley in London after having dinner. The Huffington Post reports Elizabeth tried to hide her face with a scarf, but the paparazzi snapped photos of her as she got into a taxi with Tom. There’s speculation the actress isn’t ready to go public with her romance with Hiddleston. More photos were snapped of the duo sitting in the backseat of the taxi.

The pair were seen walking down the street together in Oxford on July 21 and were reportedly looking cozy. Two days after their walk, they attended Bradley Cooper’s West End production of The Elephant Man.
The actors are best known for their roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Elizabeth as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Hiddleston as Loki in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World. Next up in the Marvel Universe for Olsen will be 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and for Hiddleston, 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
While they haven’t appeared in a superhero movie together, Olsen and Hiddleston are co-starring in the upcoming biopic, I Saw the Light. Filming recently wrapped for the movie in which Tom plays country legend Hank Williams, and Elizabeth plays Hank’s wife, Audrey Mae Williams. Could filming have stirred up romance between the two actors?
Speaking of the romance rumors, a source told Us Weekly, “They’ve been talking constantly. It’s been good for the both of them, they really care for each other. Neither of them are looking to jump into a large commitment, but it’s getting more serious.”
So far neither camp has confirmed or denied any rumors of a romance.
Could the rumors of romance have any truth to them, or are Hiddleston and Olsen simply close because they’re friends and co-stars? What do you think if the romance rumors are true?
