Buzz Feed – Attention, Marvel fans: Elizabeth Olsen is on board with the idea of an all-women superhero movie.

Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, told BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM morning show that such a movie would have a “huge impact.”

“I think people really love these characters,” she said. “I feel like all the men in Marvel movies have done such a brilliant job with satisfying a lot of things our audiences want, and they’re funny and they’re talented. And so are all the women. And to give them more screentime, I think, would be a huge impact because comics aren’t just for boys who want to watch big boys.”

Fans were thrilled by a scene from Avengers: Endgame in which all the Marvel women joined forces to protect the Infinity Gauntlet.

So it won’t come as too much of a surprise that Brie Larson, aka Captain Marvel, told Variety earlier this week the idea of an all-women movie had been “truly discussed” at the highest levels of Marvel.

“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to [Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige] and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,’” Larson told Variety, adding: “You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”

Olsen said it’s important that Marvel makes films to cater to its diverse fanbase — which includes many women. “Especially when you go to conventions, you really see that,” she said.

Press/Video: Elizabeth Olsen auditioned for ‘Game of Thrones’ but forgot because ‘it was horrible’

 

USA Today – Elizabeth Olsen stopped by “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Thursday and told the hosts she auditioned for the role of Khaleesi and forgot she even tried out for the role because the experience just went so terribly.

“I also forgot that I auditioned for it,” the “Avengers” star said. “Someone had asked about a terrible audition experience – a journalist, not a good time to remember something like that, and I was like, ‘I actually really love auditioning; I can’t really think of anything, and I was like, ‘Oh! Right! I auditioned for “Game of Thrones.'”

Olsen shared she was reading with the casting director because no one else was available, and she was auditioning the scene where Khaleesi gets burned alive.

“That was the furthest I ever got. It was that bad,” Olsen said.

Kelly Ripa asked the actress if she knows when an audition is going bad.

“It was horrible,” Olsen explained. “This is uncomfortable for me. I’m sure it’s awkward for her, like no one’s going to enjoy this experience.”

Olsen said now she would just tell the casting director if she was having a rough audition rather than going through the whole process. She also noted that even when she gets offered roles, she still asks to audition just to feel out the “vibe.”

WHAT WHEN WEAR: A loose linen blouse. An untouched plate of madeleines. An empty French bistro in the Valley on a Tuesday at 4 p.m. These are the poised circumstances under which I spend an afternoon attempting to better understand one of Hollywood’s most discreet young celebrities: Elizabeth Olsen.

The 30-year-old actress’s identity doesn’t seem like it would lend itself to much mystery. Since 2014, Olsen has starred as the Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s superhero movie franchise—one of the most-watched film series in entertainment history. (This summer’s Avengers: Endgame quickly became the second-highest-grossing movie of all time.) It’s a role she’ll reprise later with WandaVision, a Disney+ spin-off series about her superhero character coming spring 2021. In the meantime, Olsen executive produces and stars in Sorry for Your Loss, a drama series following Olsen as Leigh, a young widow struggling to deal with the sudden loss of her husband. (The show airs on Facebook Watch, and its second season premieres October 1.) By any objective measure, business is booming for Olsen, the younger sibling of Ashley and Mary-Kate, who long ago reached a level of fame so behemoth they no longer need a last name. The Olsens are as much American royalty as the Kennedys or the Rockefellers. I should know everything about Elizabeth Olsen.

And yet, as soon as she walks through the door of Petit Trois (the setting she chose for our interview) and introduces herself to me, it sinks in how little I do know. “I’m Lizzie,” she says with a jumpy half-hug, half-handshake—though the awkwardness is entirely my fault. I’m caught off guard that the young starlet lives just outside of L.A., around the corner from where she grew up (I would have pegged her for more of a hip Eastside girl), and I never knew she went by the cozy nickname. “Thanks for coming to the Valley,” she says, smiling.

Following behind two heavy-hitting child stars turned esoteric fashion moguls, Olsen, who decided at a young age to pursue a career in acting (and obtained a degree in it from NYU), had prodigious shoes to fill. Her on-screen breakout, a critically lauded lead in the 2011 Sundance hit Martha Marcy May Marlene, suggested that Olsen would be taking a cleverly divergent route from her older sisters—one of a risk-taking indie cinema darling. Some of her filmography still reflects that identity—roles in quirky small-budget dramedies like 2012’s Liberal Arts and 2017’s Ingrid Goes West.
