The WandaVision cast and creative team are the first guests on the new season of The Awardist podcast, where EW’s Kristen Baldwin and Gerrad Hall kick things off with a look at the Limited Series race.

 

EW: The history books are closed on this year’s Oscars, so Hollywood — and EW with it — is opening a new one focused on this September’s Emmys.

That means a new season of EW’s The Awardist podcast is now underway, kicking off with the cast and creative team behind the blockbuster equivalent of a TV series: WandaVision. The first Marvel television show on Disney+, which debuted in January, is one of the many limited series in contention this year, and we’re breaking down that category as well as lead actor and actress in a limited series/TV movie. In addition to WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, stars including Hugh Grant (The Undoing), Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), and Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You) are among those vying for a nomination come July 13.

In the case of WandaVision, traditional superhero fare is turned on its head with a story that focused on Wanda’s (Olsen) grief following the death of her beloved Vision (Bettany). But here, she uses her immense powers to manufacture a town and home where Vision is actually alive, and they’re living an idyllic life via the world of comfort-TV shows like those she grew up watching as a child in Sokovia. Add to it Teyonah Parris as S.W.O.R.D. agent Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn, who plays nosy neighbor Agnes/powerful witch Agatha Harkness, and the stakes are raised by people who are trying to stop Wanda — for reasons both good and bad.

The four actors, along with series head writer/EP Jac Schaeffer and director/EP Matt Shakman, joined The Awardist podcast, where they talked about audience reaction, fan theories, and memes, tackling grief in a profound but entertaining way, and watching Hahn top the iTunes chart with “Agatha All Along” (and besting Justin Bieber in the process). They also reveal their favorites moments from the nine episodes — some of which may surprise you.

You can listen to the full episode of The Awardist below.

Edit: Added the video –

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explains why a planned Dr. Strange appearance would’ve “taken away from Wanda”

ROLLING STONE: The story of WandaVision‘s main character, Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), is set to continue in 2022’s Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, but the two projects were almost linked much more directly. As Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige reveals in Rolling Stone‘s upcoming, extensive oral history of WandaVision, Marvel struck a deal with Benedict Cumberbatch to appear in the final episode of the show as Dr. Strange. But late in the process, they wrote him out.

“Some people might say, ‘Oh, it would’ve been so cool to see Dr. Strange,’” says Feige. “But it would have taken away from Wanda, which is what we didn’t want to do. We didn’t want the end of the show to be commoditized to go to the next movie — here’s the white guy, ‘Let me show you how power works.’” That meant the Dr. Strange movie, too, had to be rewritten. In the end, Feige says, Marvel’s process is “a wonderful combination of very dedicated coordination, and chaos. Chaos magic.” At one point, back when Dr. Strange was supposed to be part of the story, the in-universe commercials were going to be messages from Strange to Wanda, and there was also talk of having Cumberbatch appear in one of the ads, head writer Jac Schaeffer says.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen is pushing back on criticism that Wanda got off too easy by flying away without punishment after she forced an entire town of people into her sitcom fantasy world. “She had to get away before the people who have to hold her accountable got there,” she says. “And where she went is a place that no one could find her. Because she knows that she is going to be held accountable, and I think she has a tremendous amount of guilt.”

Our oral history, which tells the entire story behind the making of one of the year’s best TV shows, will also include interviews with Paul Bettany, Kathryn Hahn, Teyonnah Parris, Randall Park, Kat Dennings, and many more.

Posted on May 03, 2021 / by AliKat in Casting News, Love and Death

 

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen is headed to HBO Max for her next TV project.

Olsen will topline Love and Death, a limited series about a notorious murder in Texas in 1980. The series from Lionsgate Television counts David E. Kelley, Nicole Kidman and director Lesli Linka Glatter among its producing team.

Olsen will play Candy Montgomery, who was convicted of murdering her neighbor and friend, Betty Gore, with an ax.

“This is a gripping story about the frustrations and desires of two women in a small town that culminates in a terrible act of violence,” said HBO Max head of original content Sarah Aubrey. “We are thrilled to be partnering with David, Lesli, Nicole, and Per [Saari] and incredibly fortunate to have Elizabeth at the center of our story to bring out all the layers of Candy that make this story so unforgettable.”

Love and Death is the second project about the Montgomery-Gore case to attract a high-profile star. Elisabeth Moss is attached to star in Candy, a limited series that’s in development at Universal Studio Group’s UCP from The Act’s Robin Veith and Nick Antosca.

Love and Death is based on the book Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs by John Bloom and Jim Atkinson and a two-part Texas Monthly series by the same authors, “Love & Death in Silicon Prairie.”

“We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the leading role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen,” said Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs. “Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other. We’re proud to be collaborating with a world-class creative team of Lesli, David and Nicole on this thrilling and intriguing series and to bring another exciting premium property to our partners at HBO Max.”

The project will reunite Big Little Lies and The Undoing’s Kelley, Kidman and Saari. Kelley executive produces via his David E. Kelley Productions along with Kidman and Saari for Blossom Films; Emmy winner Glatter (Homeland); Scott Brown and Megan Creydt for Texas Monthly; and Matthew Tinker, Michael Klick and Helen Verno.

Olsen is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Sloane Offer; Kelley by CAA and attorney Michael Gendler; Kidman by CAA, Media Talent Group and Jackoway Austen; Glatter by CAA, Anonymous Content and Lichter Grossman; and Texas Monthly by CAA.

WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen on feminism, famous sisters and finding her power.

It’s the biggest show on TV right now and has catapulted Elizabeth Olsen to a level of fame that’s eclipsed her twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. GLAMOUR’s Entertainment Director & Assistant Editor Emily Maddick meets the down-to-earth ‘Lizzie’ for a candid chat on everything from social media to sorcery, what her siblings have taught her and what female power means to her.

 

GLAMOUR UK: Winding down quintessential English country lanes to the GLAMOUR April digital cover shoot – the first IRL in over a year – with Elizabeth Olsen, superstar of WandaVision, there is a palpable sense of excitement in the air. The theme of this issue is ‘fresh start’ and despite the onset drizzle, one can feel the sense of optimism and hope as the UK starts to open up for spring after our long, long winter of lockdown.

Elizabeth has been living in leafy Richmond [she ‘loves’ it] with her musician fiancé Robbie Arnett since October, while filming another Marvel franchise, Dr Strange 2, alongside Benedict Cumberbatch. “It’s a bonkers movie, they’re definitely going for that horror show vibe,” she tells me.

She’s especially looking forward to her local Petersham Nurseries restaurant opening up again, but today she is being photographed in the beautiful grounds of a 17th century mill house in Surrey. Her appearance in a patterned fuchsia Schiaparelli trouser suit and magenta tie-dyed Christian Dior denim corduroy suit against the backdrop of the English country garden is almost as marvellously incongruous as her portrayal of Wandavision’s suburban ‘housewife’ Wanda Maximoff’s use of magic to make plates fly across the kitchen or rustle up three-course dinners at the click of a finger.

Indeed, the ‘fresh start’ theme for her GLAMOUR cover is a fitting theme for Wanda. For those uninitiated in the complexities of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest offering, each episode of WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms through the ages (think Bewitched, The Brady Bunch right up to Modern Family) with Marvel characters, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision (co-star Paul Bettany.) It takes place following the events of 2019’s film Avengers: Endgame with the two super-powered beings making a fresh start in an idyllic suburbia as husband and wife, but suspecting that everything is not as it seems. Spoiler Alert! It’s not… and the fantasy starts to unravel – along with Wanda herself.

The show has been heralded as the most feminist of all Marvel outputs to date and touches on a lot of pertinent issues, including mental health, and women’s power and empowerment. In person, Elizabeth in contrast to her on-screen character, seems grounded, open, down-to-earth and, dare I say it, remarkably ‘normal’. In fact, she tells me “‘Just be normal’ is one of my favourite things to say; ‘be normal and be kind.’”

Of course, given her now bonafide A-list status as the star of one of the biggest shows on earth (in February, the Disney+ Marvel spinoff was the most in-demand streamed programme worldwide across all platforms), Elizabeth is anything but normal – as I’m reminded when I clock her whopping great big chauffeur-driven Maserati purring outside the mill house. Her fame has now even eclipsed that of her famous-since-birth twin sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. When WandaVision launched in January, legions of fans went into social media meltdown after discovering that Elizabeth was the child-stars-turned fashion designers’ younger sister. (More on them coming up.)
