Press/Video: WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen Returns in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness First Teaser

Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Wong star in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in theaters May 2022

PEOPLE: Elizabeth Olsen’s superhero story continues to expand.

On Wednesday, Marvel Studios released a teaser online for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a standalone sequel for the Benedict Cumberbatch Avengers character after the 2016 installment.

In the teaser (which is included in the end credits of Spider-Man: No Way Home, now in theaters), Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlett Witch returns, continuing her character’s storyline from her Disney+ series WandaVision.

“We tampered with the stability of spacetime,” Doctor Strange says in the trailer. “The Multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little. … I never meant for any of this to happen.”

When Strange enlists the help of Olsen’s Wanda to get a grip on colliding universes, she references the events of WandaVision, saying, “I made mistakes and people were hurt.” She is later shown in the trailer in her full Scarlett Witch costume.

The trailer also shows Cumberbatch in dual roles, playing what appears to be his dark variant Strange Supreme, who previously appeared in Disney+’s What If…? series.

Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Wong also return for the sequel, which is directed by Sam Raimi — who previously directed the Tobey Maguire–led Spider-Man movies in the early 2000s.

Doctor Strange also appears in this month’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, which debuted to a massive opening weekend box office.

In March, Olsen, 32, told Variety about filming the Doctor Strange sequel so close to wrapping on WandaVision and how the stories inform each other. She earned an Emmy nomination for her performance in the limited series.

“I didn’t know my part in Doctor Strange until right before we got back to filming during the pandemic. We had two months left, and we’d filmed the majority of our show already,” she recalled at the time. “Really, I knew nothing until that moment when they pitched [Doctor Strange 2] to me verbally. So I tried, as much as I could, almost less so to have it affect WandaVision as have WandaVision affect it. I think that’s really been where the connection is. It’s almost like we’re trying to make sure that everything is honoring what we did [on the show].”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in theaters May 6.

Press/Gallery: 73rd Emmy Awards

I’m sad about Elizabeth and WandaVision not receiving any of the Emmys, especially Elizabeth. I know the category was stacked but I was hoping. But at any rate, we did get some beautiful looks at Elizabeth back to her normal blonde and a stunning new haircut and dress!


 

 

Elizabeth Olsen’s Bob Haircut at the Emmys Was Inspired by Grace Kelly (Can’t You Tell?)

POPSUGAR: Elizabeth Olsen looked like a dream on the red carpet at the 2021 Emmys. The WandaVision star showed up wearing an all-white gown by The Row, her sisters Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s brand, and she topped off the chic ensemble with a freshly chopped bob haircut and 1940s-inspired side-swept bangs.

Olsen’s hair was parted in a deep side part that gave her look some added drama, and it had a slight wave to it. Celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel, who Olsen often works with, is behind the look.

“I was immediately in love with the shape of her dress and wanted to create a similar silhouette with the hair,” Abergel said in a press release. “Her hair was cut into the perfect length bob, which helped me in designing a modern style. I pulled images of Lauren Bacall and Grace Kelly, and balanced them with references of minimalism to make sure the look felt modern.”

Abergel used Ghd and Virtue Labs products to get the sleek style, and he shared a few behind-the-scenes photos and videos of their glam time together on Instagram. He captioned one of the posts “New cut, New vibes,” and another video, “It’s all in the details,” which gave us a close-up look at her hairstyle.

Press: A Thorough Breakdown of All the Marvel Easter Eggs on WandaVision

POPSUGAR: WandaVision has finally arrived, and it’s chock-full of hidden goodies for Marvel fans to devour! While the series is built upon a mystery that we’ll be spending a reported nine episodes trying to figure out, the smallest details in each episode provide clues on where the show is heading. From supermarket banners to foreboding commercials, viewers have an abundance of references and callbacks to classic comic lore and pivotal MCU moments. Are they setting the stage for a big reveal at the end, or are they just fun details included for fans to enjoy? While we try to figure it all out, scroll through to see what we’ve gathered! And check back every week for an episode-by-episode breakdown as WandaVision progresses.

 

WandaVision Episode 5 Easter Eggs

  • Wanda and Vision’s brand new house, suitable for a family of four, is reminiscent of homes in ’80s sitcoms such as Full House and Growing Pains.
  • When Agnes comes in to offer her babysitting help, she refers to herself as “Auntie Agnes,” which is eerily close to her comic counterpart’s nickname, Auntie Agatha.
  • An uncomfortable break in conversation leads Agnes to ask Wanda if she wants her to “take it from the top.” Though Wanda appears confused for a moment, she readily smoothes the conversation and carries on. Vision is visibly perturbed, though Wanda attempts to redirect his attention. It seems like the facade is fading all around.
  • To the surprise of their parents, Tommy and Billy age up five years while the two argue over Agnes’s break in character.
  • This episode’s opening sequence shows Wanda and Vision growing up, which we know didn’t happen in real life for the synthezoid. The theme song sounds very similar to those from Family Ties and Growing Pains, and consists of lyrics noting that “we’re just making it up as we go along.” Sounds pretty close to how things are going with Wanda and Vision!
  • When Wanda’s scans come back, they’re inconclusive and show up blank. Considering Monica gains her powers due to bombardment by extradimensional energies in the comics, it’s entirely possible that the blast from Wanda back in episode three, coupled with passing through the forcefield around Westview twice, have given her those abilities. We could be seeing the rise of Photon!
  • While Jimmy Woo is explaining Wanda’s backstory to the agents of S.W.O.R.D., Director Hayward asks if she’s ever used a “funny nickname” like the other Avengers. She hasn’t, in fact, she’s never been referred to as Scarlet Witch in the MCU ever. Since her powers are different from her comic book counterpart, there’s never been a reason for anyone to call her a witch.
  • That never-before-seen post credits scene from Infinity War has officially made its debut. Director Hayward reveals footage of Wanda entering S.W.O.R.D. headquarters to steal Vision’s disassembled body. The video harks back to a moment in the comics where Vision was kidnapped and taken apart — but still very much alive. Much like that Vision, the one in Westview has his memory wiped and doesn’t remember anything before he woke up in his new world. So, the question is whether Vision is actually alive or not. Wanda’s hallucination from episode four might suggest he’s a walking corpse, but there’s more to the story.
  • Jimmy mentions that Wanda’s stealing of Vision’s body violates the Sokovia Accords, which haven’t been mentioned since Captain America: Civil War. Unfunnily enough, the Accords were a direct response to the mission gone wrong in Lagos where Wanda lost control of her powers and caused the death of many civilians.
  • Darcy mentions that Vision is playing “Father Knows Best in Surburbia,” referencing the ’50s sitcom.
  • Tommy and Billy find a dog that, with the help of Auntie Agnes, they name Sparky. The Vision family has a dog with that exact name in the King and Walta comics, but he’s green. Sadly, he meets a similar fate as his live-action counterpart.

Press: From WandaVision To Doctor Strange 2: Elizabeth Olsen Comments on Marvel Double Header

THE DIRECT – According to Benedict Cumberbatch, filming for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was previously reported to begin in early-November. This does make everything seem quite tight, considering he will be reprising the role of Doctor Strange in Spider-Man 3 while Elizabeth Olsen was still finishing with WandaVision.

There have been some questions about whether filming for the multiverse movie was delayed slightly from when Cumberbatch was last informed. Olsen has already revealed that filming for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would last until at least Christmas for her, but according to the latest Empire interview, Olsen is apparently already filming the Doctor Strange sequel in London.

In the expose on WandaVison in the latest issue of Empire, it was noted that by the time the issue was released, Elizabeth Olsen would be in London shooting Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Elizabeth Olsen actually specifies that she will be filming for Wanda’s character “back-to-back,” implying that she began filming for the Doctor Strange sequel shortly after filming wrapped for WandaVision.

“I’ve spent the last year with Wanda. And it’s actually incredible to go back-to-back because I feel I can contribute so much more now.”

WHAT THIS MEANS

Elizabeth Olsen’s filming schedule actually tells fans quite a bit about other productions since filming for WandaVision apparently reached an end around the beginning of November. At around the same time, Benedict Cumberbatch was on the set of Spider-Man 3 in Atlanta, Georgia, by at least the end of October.

If Elizabeth Olsen did indeed begin filming for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shortly after finishing with WandaVision, that could imply that Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t shoot for long in Atlanta for Spider-Man 3. At a minimum, Cumberbatch could have been shooting in Atlanta for two weeks, maybe three.

Still, just because Olsen has started filming doesn’t automatically mean that Cumberbatch must be present too, as there are likely scenes with Wanda without the Sorcerer Supreme. Olsen and the team could film such scenes first before Cumberbatch arrives.

It is still unknown what kind of role Doctor Strange will have in Spider-Man 3. Still, considering it seems more and more likely that a multiverse element will be present in the movie, his role has to be more important than a small cameo like in Thor: Ragnarok.

Press: WANDAVISION Empire Covers Provide A New Look At Elizabeth Olsen & Paul Bettany’s Loved-Up Avengers

Empire magazine has unveiled its latest newsstand and subscriber covers, and they give us a new look at WandaVision’s loved up Avengers, Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elisabeth Olsen)...

COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM
– WandaVision is set to be the first of Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ shows to debut on the streaming service, and Empire has now shared a new look at Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as the titular MCU heroes on their latest covers.

The newsstand cover features The MCU’s “strangest couple” looking blissfully happy together in their sitcom-like reality as their true, superhero identities begin to seep in. The stunning subscriber cover by artist Max Löffler, meanwhile, features a more robotic, Metropolis-inspired interpretation of the Vision. Of course, Wanda is never far from his mind!

WandaVision was originally scheduled to premiere next month, but Marvel recently announced that the show would not be hitting the Disney+ streaming service until January 15, making this the first year since 2009 that no new Marvel Studios content has been released. 2020 gonna 2020.

Press: We Finally Know When “WandaVision” Is Going To Premiere On Disney+

Remember those Marvel TV shows we were promised like a million years ago?

BUZZFEED – Well, one of them finally has a release date, and it’s WandaVision! Drumroll please..

The show, along with The Falcon and the Winter Solider, was supposed to premiere this year, but 2020 had other plans. I know the concept of 2021 seems abstract and impossible, but it’s less than two months away!

At this point, it’s not entirely clear what exactly we should expect from WandaVision. The trailer honestly left me with more questions than answers.

Here’s what we know for sure: We’re gonna see Wanda and Vision in a bunch of different eras, including the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. This is probably due to Wanda’s reality-altering abilities.

There’s definitely a part of the show that pays homage to the classic sitcoms of the ’50s, like this scene that is reminiscent of I Love Lucy. The trailer seems to hint that there will also be more ~dramatic~ elements.

Here’s to 2021 starting off RIGHT.
