Press: Elizabeth Olsen Texted WandaVision Costar Paul Bettany ‘I Miss You’ amid Doctor Strange 2 Press

“I’m so used to doing press with him and I just miss him so much,” Olsen said at the premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

PEOPLE: Elizabeth Olsen is taking a moment to think of her former onscreen husband while doing press for her latest Marvel movie.

The actress, 33, attended the premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in Hollywood on Monday, the latest MCU franchise entry in which she reprises her role of Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch.

Ahead of the film, Olsen spoke with PEOPLE, saying how it feels different this time around to be doing press and attending events without her former costar Paul Bettany. Bettany famously played Vision, a super-enhanced artificial intelligence that Olsen’s Wanda falls in love with over the course of the Avengers films and later, in the popular Marvel/Disney+ series WandaVision.

“I did text him last weekend and I was like, ‘I miss you,’ ” Olsen said, “because I’m so used to doing press with him and I just miss him so much and Wanda’s really alone in this film and I feel it as an actor.”

Bettany’s Vision character met his demise at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, and much of WandaVision recounts how Wanda grapples with his death — even creating a new version of him within a fabricated world.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, is the first MCU installment with Olsen that does not also include Bettany.

Regarding Wanda/Scarlet Witch’s enthusiastic fan base thanks to WandaVision, Olsen also said on Monday night that being able to do the series ahead of this new movie “was an amazing opportunity.”

“I think because of the experience that the audience and the fans have had with WandaVision, they’ll have a different perspective coming into Dr. Strange, and I’m excited for the journey they’re about to see Wanda go on in this film.”

Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor also return for the Doctor Strange sequel, in which multiple universes clash and intertwine.

Cumberbatch last appeared in his Avengers role in last year’s record-breaking hit Spider-Man: No Way Home, which meshed multiverses in the Spidey realm, mixing Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s iterations of the character. Sam Raimi, who directed the early-2000s Maguire Spider-Man movies, directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

“The movie is a journey into the Multiverse, so you do see different iterations of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and even Lizzie Olsen’s character of Wanda Maximoff,” Raimi told Fandango last month. “So the actors have to play that. It’s a great challenge for them and great fun to direct them playing these altered versions of themselves.”

The director added, “I think Wanda’s magic, from Marvel lore, is more powerful than almost any of the other characters in this picture, but Doctor Strange has the knowledge of the mystic arts that Wanda doesn’t have, and he’s got the help of Kamar-Taj. If you were to pit them against each other, different altered versions of themselves … there could be a Doctor Strange out there that’s more powerful than our Wanda. Or there could be a Wanda out there who is more powerful than our Wanda here. So, because of these altered versions, it’s all a mixed bag of possibilities.”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which follows 2016’s Doctor Strange, hits theaters Friday May 6.

Press: Elizabeth Olsen Reveals Why She Gets ‘Feisty’ When People Criticize Marvel Movies

“I’m not saying we’re making indie art films,” Olsen said

HUFFPOST:The Scarlet Witch’s wrath might be deadly, but Elizabeth Olsen says she only gets a “little feisty” when people criticize Marvel movies.

While absolutely nobody needs to feel bad for a studio raking in box-office receipts by the billions, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has attracted a handful of high-profile detractors in recent years, including directors Martin Scorsese, Denis Villeneuve and Jane Campion, who’ve all essentially laid the death of cinema at its feet.

Olsen — who’s appeared in a string of Marvel projects since 2015, including the recent “Doctor Strange” sequel — understands the feedback, but she’s also pushing back against those who make superhero films “seem like a lesser type of art.”

“I’m not saying we’re making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me,” she said in a new interview with The Independent. “These are some of the most amazing set designers, costume designers, camera operators ― I feel diminishing them with that kind of criticism takes away from all the people who do award-winning films, that also work on these projects.”

“From an actor’s point of view, whatever, I get it; I totally understand that there’s a different kind of performance that’s happening,” she continued. “But I do think throwing Marvel under the bus takes away from the hundreds of very talented crew people. That’s where I get a little feisty about that.”

Olsen got her start in a string of critically acclaimed indie films, including her big-screen debut in the 2011 thriller “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” before moving on to big-budget, special-effects-heavy fare.

Her latest Marvel blockbuster, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” arrived in theaters this weekend to the tune of an estimated $185 million in ticket sales, the biggest opening of any film in 2022.

As for whether she’ll return to her roots, Olsen has learned to keep her options open and the haters out of mind, adding that she’s ready to play in the Marvel sandbox again as long as “there’s a good idea attached to it.”

Noting that she initially was only contracted to appear in two movies and a cameo, Olsen said, “It continues to be a surprise when they want to use me for more projects.”

Next up for the actor, however, is a project hailing from an entirely different genre.

Olsen is set to star in “Love and Death,” an upcoming HBO Max limited series from writer and executive producer David E. Kelley about the true and very grisly story of Texas housewife Candy Montgomery, who famously killed her best friend from church with an ax.

Interview/Gallery: The Marvelous Mrs. Elizabeth Olsen

 

 

From home decor to biodiversity, Elizabeth Olsen’s interests are rooted in the glorious nature of the Golden State. Here, the bona fide star of big and small screens tells C about her ambitions beyond the Marvel multiverse

 

C MAGAZINE: You think you know Elizabeth Olsen. A fixed star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The younger sister of the identical uber-celebrities Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Heart-stoppingly beautiful on any red carpet, charmingly relatable on any talk show, about as close to a natural-born celebrity as you can get, having made her screen debut at age 5 in the Olsen TV movie, How the West Was Fun.

And yet nothing about Elizabeth Olsen is quite as you expect. A few minutes into a conversation that was supposed to have something to do with the new Doctor Strange movie in which she stars, we have somehow moved on to the evils of pesticides and the importance of cover crops. Yes, Hollywood is all very well, but Olsen still dreams of studying agriculture and starting a progressive farmstead.

“We just eloped. Traditions aren’t very important to me”

Marvel Studios Disables Social Media Comments Ahead of Doctor Strange 2 Premiere

 
COMICBOOK: We’re in the endgame now. Marvel Studios has disabled social media comments to curb spoilers as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness screens in full ahead of its May 6 release only in theaters. Marvel’s Doctor Strange sequel will host its red carpet world premiere live from Hollywood tonight at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT, giving attendees the first look at Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) mind-bending trip through the Multiverse. To keep the film’s major cameos and surprises under wraps, the official @MarvelStudios account has gone dark with a message posted to Twitter: “See you on the other side of the Multiverse. Replies will now be disabled.”

“Find out in a theater. Not online,” reads @MarvelStudios’ temporary social media bio. “Replies disabled.”

Marvel Studios’ nearly 10 million followers are currently unable to respond to tweets from @MarvelStudios or the official @DoctorStrange account, a tactic to prevent rogue leaks or spoilers from appearing in the comments. Marvel famously issued an official spoiler warning for Avengers: Endgame with the hashtag #DontSpoilTheEndgame.

Last month, an insider claimed Multiverse of Madness has “more big surprises” than the spoiler-filled Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: No Way Home — combined. Disney has so far screened only the first 20 minutes of the Sam Raimi Marvel movie for press ahead of the world premiere in Hollywood.

Official promos from Marvel Studios have already confirmed some of the multiversal cameos and appearances in store for Doctor Strange 2 — spoiler warning — including a live-action Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell), a variant Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch), and X-Men leader Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) of the MCU Illuminati.

The first Doctor Strange 2 social media reactions will release online following Monday’s premiere. Reviews will publish Tuesday, May 3.

In Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme (Benedict Wong), and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange.

Press/Video: Latest ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ Featurette Spotlights Wanda Maximoff’s Return

Doctor Strange and The Scarlet Witch return to theaters on May 6!

MARVEL: Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives exclusively in theaters in one week, starting May 6. Tickets are now on sale!

In the latest brand-new featurette, seen above, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, film stars Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Cumberbatch, and director Sam Raimi reveal how the infinite possibilities of the Multiverse affect Wanda Maximoff / The Scarlet Witch as she returns following the events of Marvel Studios’ WandaVision.

The featurette opens with Vision’s poignant line from WandaVision, “What is grief, if not love persevering?”

“Part of the Madness of the Multiverse is we get to see different realities,” explains Feige. “And we see different versions, primarily of Doctor Strange, but we do see other versions of Wanda Maximoff.”

“WandaVision was this journey of her, for the first time, taking her own life into her own hands, and it was fun transitioning from her experience to this movie,” adds Olsen.

“We wanted to satisfy the WandaVision fans and take them to the next level with a character they love,” reveals Raimi.

“It was fun just looking at it from a different perspective,” Olsen says.

“It’s magical,” raves Cumberbatch. “She owns that character so well. It’s a very powerful performance, with a very powerful character.”

“In the Multiverse, there are alternate versions of everyone. It gives the character a unique opportunity to meet themselves, to recognize qualities that they may have been blind to,” Raimi concludes.

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, with Michael Stühlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. The film is directed by Sam Raimi, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Michael Waldron.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives in theaters May 6, 2022. Advanced tickets now available!
