Press: Elizabeth Olsen addresses her Marvel future after “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”

Actor says she’d be up for another ‘WandaVision’-style series

INDEPENDENT: Elizabeth Olsen has addressed her future as Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel franchise.

The actor has played the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since 2015, and won legions of fans following her appearance in WandaVision in January 2021.

In a recent interview with The Independent, Olsen said that she filmed new sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness before WandaVision had even begun showing on Disney Plus.

She said: “I didn’t know the plot of Doctor Strange 2 until we were almost done with WandaVision. The odd thing is no one saw it who worked on Doctor Strange; we filmed it back-to-back.”

Elsewhere in the interview, she reflected on her Marvel future, saying she would consider returning for another standalone TV series if asked.

“I don’t know how big the plans actually are but I’m down for anything as long as there’s a good idea attached to it. I wanna know what people want next desperately ‘cause I think there are very clever and creative fan ideas.”

Olsen said the important thing with Wanda is that she gets to “continue to create a new aspect and some sort of change or shift in her as we move forward so it doesn’t become this repeat of something”.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be available to stream on Disney Plus from 22 June.

Press: Here’s How Elizabeth Olsen Collaborated With Writer Michael Waldron To Come Up With Wanda’s Story In “Doctor Strange 2”

Elizabeth Olsen wrapped WandaVision only two days before jumping into Multiverse of Madness.

There are some MASSIVE spoilers ahead for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness!

BUZZFEED:Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently the latest Marvel project to take over the box office, as fans flock to see this Sam Raimi–directed movie. And while it is technically the second solo Doctor Strange movie, it’s hard to deny how important Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) is in the film.

I mean, let’s be honest, it really could’ve been called Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch in the Multiverse of Madness.

And while this MCU movie has so many storylines, Wanda Maximoff’s transformation into the Scarlet Witch is arguably the biggest and one of the most important, especially because the last Marvel project we all saw Wanda in was WandaVision.

In fact, Elizabeth Olsen notably wrapped WandaVision and then flew to London two days later to start filming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Meaning she played Wanda Maximoff nonstop for nearly two years.

So, in order to ensure that Wanda’s storylines in Multiverse of Madness made sense, writer Michael Waldron said he collaborated a lot with Elizabeth, who has “total ownership over Wanda and the Scarlet Witch.”

Press: Doctor Strange 2 Writer Responds to WandaVision Fans’ Backlash

THE DIRECT: Even though Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a box office hit, it’s already proven to be one of the MCU’s more contentious additions. Benedict Cumberbatch may have top billing, but Doctor Strange 2 is as much about Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff as it is about the former Sorcerer Supreme; and in light of her character’s journey in WandaVision, her role in the film has led to considerable backlash.

In Olsen’s first scene of the Doctor Strange sequel, she’s established as the villain with full intentions of killing America Chavez to absorb her power. Why? To be with her twin boys who exist in another universe.

For those who watched WandaVision on Disney+, the switch from grieving but accepting heroine to the fully-fledged Scarlet Witch, willing to kill others for alternate versions of her own children, just might be the film’s biggest shocker. And, for some corners of the Marvel fan base, a disservice.

Now that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has made its theatrical debut, the writer who penned Wanda’s “Strange” story is explaining why the film’s villain was Wanda all along.

Doctor Strange 2 Writer Reacts to Wanda Maximoff Complaints

In an interview with The Playlist, Doctor Strange 2 writer Michael Waldron responded to fan complaints about how Wanda’s character was handled in Multiverse of Madness, saying, “I guess I would say to the WandaVision fans, like, I get it:”

“I guess I would say to the WandaVision fans, like, I get it. Watching a character you love do bad things sucks. That elicits a strong feeling, which is what we’re trying to do in the movies. We never would have done it if it didn’t feel like the next step in her character journey.”

When fans last saw Wanda on Disney+, she had accepted the loss of Vision and her sitcom family and felt remorse for having hurt the people of Westview. She then retreated to a remote cabin where her astral form studied the Darkhold, all before hearing cries of help from her kids.

And, while it’s no secret to Marvel fans that the Darkhold is bad news, her turn to the role of a villain felt jarring so soon after embracing her personal losses and regretting her Westview mistakes.

But according to Michael Waldron, Wanda’s struggle with grief hadn’t quite reached its conclusion.

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.
