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.)

The Marvel star takes us inside her transformation to a new kind of hero

 

GRAZIA: Elizabeth Olsen is a trooper. We are in a field in Surrey on the outskirts of the Marvel studios; it’s a biting minus one and she is standing in a Chanel broderie anglaise sundress and increasingly soggy UGG boots. Her feline cheekbones face skywards, but Olsen is slowly sinking into the mud, trilling out high notes to keep herself warm (possibly distracted) and of course with spirits high. “It was the wind I think, that was worse than the sideways rain,” she jokes as we trundle back to the soundstage hangar that we are using as a studio. It’s the kind of moment that could go viral on Instagram, that is, if Olsen were on social media. Yet one of the biggest stars of our current cultural moment is completely offline – and that surprising fact might just be the least interesting thing about her. If anything, it is a sign of how Olsen has come into her own as a confident, decisive star with the power to create her own universe.

On the cusp of her 32nd birthday, Olsen is fastidious and professional, yes, but also bright, engaging, creative, and collaborative. Born and raised in the California sunshine, she is surprisingly at ease in the blustery conditions that deluge the English countryside in late January – or, it’s that she’s very good at acting. “It was one of the ugliest days of this winter – just hilarious – but I knew we wanted the shot,” the 31-year-old actress says.

Since October, Olsen’s been living in the leafy British countryside with her “man-guy-partner,” musician Robbie Arnett, just a short drive to the Surrey compound where Doctor Strange is being filmed. It’s a closed set, masked in secrecy as much as the socially distanced masked crew dotted all over the 200-acre studio. “It feels right being in a small city right now,” she says.

Of course, more than ever, it feels right being an Avenger. Olsen will be reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff (nom de plume Scarlet Witch) in Doctor Strange, following the rampant success of Marvel’s current miniseries (and first foray into television) WandaVision, starring Olsen and Paul Bettany. Olsen has been part of the Marvel cinematic universe (and one of the most successful film franchises of the last decade) since 2014 when she cameoed in Captain America. Bridging nostalgia and action, the buzz of WandaVision is global: from critics to comic book fans, and almost everyone else. It is arguably one of the most meta screen offerings in a long time, arriving on our screens in television’s Renaissance.

An ambitious new Disney+ series might just give the strongest Avenger the happy ending she deserves.

 

 

ELLE: We can’t keep meeting Elizabeth Olsen like this. By “this,” I mean in the throes of catastrophe or bereavement, or, to put it plainly, when she’s an emotional wreck. In the 2018 Facebook Watch drama Sorry For Your Loss, Olsen assumes the role of Leigh Shaw, a young widow grappling with the unexpected loss of her husband and all the painful nuisances that come with death: the unbearable waves of sadness, the clichéd condolences, a grief support group that runs out of donuts. At one point, Leigh says through a cracked voice, “I’m just mad all the time.” It’s hard not to draw parallels to Olsen’s other angry character. After all, “mad” is exactly how 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron introduced us to Wanda Maximoff.

Defined by tragedy since her Marvel debut, Wanda (aka the Scarlet Witch) is an orphan with telekinetic powers. When not saving the world, she spends most of her time onscreen grieving the deaths of her parents, twin brother, or lover. Wanda’s never been allowed to fully exist outside the confines of her grief and anger, but with the launch of WandaVision—Marvel’s foray into serialized content for streaming—she may just be getting the happy ending she deserves.

Partly inspired by The Vision comic book, which follows synthezoid superhero Vision and his family as they move to the suburbs of Washington, D.C., the Disney+ series is an ode to the TV sitcoms we’ve come to love, with Wanda and Vision (Paul Bettany) basking in newlywed bliss—except Vision’s been very dead (killed twice, in fact) since the events of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. It’s unclear exactly how these starcrossed characters got to suburbia, but for now, it’s a delight to see the typically solemn duo sink their teeth into slapstick comedy.

“The show is like a blank slate for them,” Olsen tells me over Zoom, her light brown fringe a departure from Wanda’s red waves. The Scarlet Witch’s doleful glare is also long gone; in its place, Olsen’s eyes are wide with excitement. “Wanda and Vision’s journey to this point is a story of pure, innocent love and deep connection with another person,” she explains. “It was also very traumatizing. Tragedy has always been their story. In our show, we kind of wipe that clean and start fresh.”

But Wanda’s complicated past looms over WandaVision. Age of Ultron saw her and her twin brother, Pietro, initially opposing the Avengers (the siblings volunteered for a series of experiments with Hydra—a super evil organization within the MCU—after the deaths of their parents at the hands of Tony Stark’s Stark Industries) before switching sides to help save the Earth. The movie ends in victory for our superheroes, but yet another tragedy for Wanda when Pietro dies in battle. She finds comfort in the arms of Vision, an android created from the remains of Tony’s J.A.R.V.I.S. program, but even that bliss is short-lived. You see, Vision can only live with the help of the Mind Stone, which Mad Titan Thanos needs to take over the universe. In Infinity War, Vision asks Wanda to sacrifice him, and Wanda reluctantly agrees—but Thanos reverses time to gain control of the stone, killing the robot for a second time. Wanda’s pain is palpable: Imagine sacrificing the love of your life to save everyone else, just to watch him brought back to life and killed again—by the very villain you’re trying to defeat.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe comes to television with WandaVision the new Disney+ series that places a super-powered Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in the suburbs of classic sitcoms.

 

 

EMMY – When you wish upon a luxurious star, you just might land at Club 33 in Disneyland.

Tucked away above New Orleans Square and decorated with historic flourishes (the harpsichord at reception belonged to Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian), it’s a pricey, ultra-exclusive club for members and VIPS. On August 25, 2019, Marvel Studios president and chief creative officer Kevin Feige, joined by producer-director Matt Shakman, enjoyed lunch and swapped stories there with Dick Van Dyke and his wife, Arlene.

“It was unbelievable!” Feige recalls. “You sit down and don’t know what to say because you’re so starstruck.” Shakman is more succinct: “It was the best afternoon of my life.”

They weren’t there just to catch up with a 93-year-old legend. They were about to start production on an innovative Disney+ series called WandaVision — which Shakman will only describe as a “love letter to television” — and they wanted to hear about the star’s experiences on his groundbreaking 1960s sitcom, The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Van Dyke waxed about his fellow actor and the show creator, Carl Reiner, who mined real-life anecdotes for the episodes, as well as his own delight at filming in front of live studio audiences.

In turn, Feige talked about the new series he was executive-producing with Shakman, among others. “I tried to explain how there was this robot and a witch and how she had to kill him because Thanos reversed time,” he says with a laugh. “I’m thinking, ‘He doesn’t need to hear this!'”

With the premiere of WandaVision on January 15, it will all click. Set after the events of the 2019 blockbuster Avengers: Endgame, the weekly series — which is patterned on prototypical sitcoms of various eras — explores the adventures of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and her love, an android named Vision (Paul Bettany).

Yes, Vision died when the Mind Stone was ripped from his forehead in the 2018 film Avengers: Infinity War, and he is still dead. But rules can be malleable when one of the two main characters is also known as Scarlet Witch.

“What I love about Wanda in the comic books, and what drew me to her originally,” Olsen says, “is what we get to explore in a beautiful way.” To that end, even a witch couldn’t have manipulated the series’ timing any better.

When Disney+ launched in November 2019, it did so with the promise that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) would soon unveil new series based on some of its lower-profile action heroes. At last, fans of the gazillion-grossing, 23-movie Infinity Saga would enjoy extensive and exclusive insights into the likes of Falcon, the Winter Soldier, Wanda, Vision, Loki and others, all in episodic installments.
