Best Source For All Things Elizabeth Olsen

Welcome to , Elizabeth Olsen Source, your best source for all things related to Elizabeth Olsen. Elizabeth's breakthrough came in 2011 when she starred in critically-acclaimed movies "Martha Marcy May Marlene" and "Silent House". She made her name in indie movies until her role in 2014 blockbuster Godzilla and then as Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff in Marvel's Captain America: Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War. Her recent starring role in Facebook Watch's "Sorry For Your Loss" included her first Executive Producer position.

WHAT WHEN WEAR: A loose linen blouse. An untouched plate of madeleines. An empty French bistro in the Valley on a Tuesday at 4 p.m. These are the poised circumstances under which I spend an afternoon attempting to better understand one of Hollywood’s most discreet young celebrities: Elizabeth Olsen.

The 30-year-old actress’s identity doesn’t seem like it would lend itself to much mystery. Since 2014, Olsen has starred as the Scarlet Witch in Marvel’s superhero movie franchise—one of the most-watched film series in entertainment history. (This summer’s Avengers: Endgame quickly became the second-highest-grossing movie of all time.) It’s a role she’ll reprise later with WandaVision, a Disney+ spin-off series about her superhero character coming spring 2021. In the meantime, Olsen executive produces and stars in Sorry for Your Loss, a drama series following Olsen as Leigh, a young widow struggling to deal with the sudden loss of her husband. (The show airs on Facebook Watch, and its second season premieres October 1.) By any objective measure, business is booming for Olsen, the younger sibling of Ashley and Mary-Kate, who long ago reached a level of fame so behemoth they no longer need a last name. The Olsens are as much American royalty as the Kennedys or the Rockefellers. I should know everything about Elizabeth Olsen.

And yet, as soon as she walks through the door of Petit Trois (the setting she chose for our interview) and introduces herself to me, it sinks in how little I do know. “I’m Lizzie,” she says with a jumpy half-hug, half-handshake—though the awkwardness is entirely my fault. I’m caught off guard that the young starlet lives just outside of L.A., around the corner from where she grew up (I would have pegged her for more of a hip Eastside girl), and I never knew she went by the cozy nickname. “Thanks for coming to the Valley,” she says, smiling.

Following behind two heavy-hitting child stars turned esoteric fashion moguls, Olsen, who decided at a young age to pursue a career in acting (and obtained a degree in it from NYU), had prodigious shoes to fill. Her on-screen breakout, a critically lauded lead in the 2011 Sundance hit Martha Marcy May Marlene, suggested that Olsen would be taking a cleverly divergent route from her older sisters—one of a risk-taking indie cinema darling. Some of her filmography still reflects that identity—roles in quirky small-budget dramedies like 2012’s Liberal Arts and 2017’s Ingrid Goes West.

Press: Scarlet Witch Could Defeat Thanos One-on-One, Says Kevin Feige

 

SCREENRANT – Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige thinks Thanos would have been in trouble without his army in Avengers: Endgame, confirming that Scarlet Witch would have defeated him in a one-on-one battle. In the MCU, Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen, who made her Marvel debut with Captain America: The Winter Solider. In that film, she shows up in a mid-credits scene where she’s held captive by Baron Strucker. Scarlet Witch then appears with her brother, Quicksilver, in Avengers: Age of Ultron, though her brother ultimately dies saving Hawkeye and a child. Scarlet Witch has since fought with the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

At Comic-Con 2019, Marvel discussed Scarlet Witch’s future role in the MCU and on the small screen. She’ll first appear in WandaVision, a TV series for Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service. WandaVision will debut spring of 2021 and feature both Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision. However, it’s unclear how Vision will be brought back, as he died in Avengers: Infinity War. Immediately following WandaVision, Scarlet Witch will feature in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which has a May 7, 2021 release date. Marvel Studios also confirmed that her storyline in the second Doctor Strange will connect to the events of WandaVision.

In an interview with Comic Book (via CBR), Feige shared his belief that Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos on her own in Avengers: Endgame. Speaking of her abilities, he said, “Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power – I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done.” Feige also talked about Scarlet Witch’s role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, explaining, “…her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stage in a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.” Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange are two of the most powerful characters in the MCU, so Feige’s comments clarify why a partnership between the two makes sense.

In the comics, Scarlet Witch receives her powers when she’s born a mutant with superhuman abilities. Her character debuted in The X-Men #4 during the Silver Age of Comic Books. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are originally villains, similar to the way the siblings first sided with Ultron in the films. Scarlet Witch first has general hex powers but slowly becomes more powerful as her story goes on. She eventually gains the power to cause specific events and manipulate magic. In the comics, Scarlet Witch is the only one who scares the powerful Phoenix Five.

Feige’s declaration that Scarlet Witch could have defeated Thanos in Avengers: Endgame may seem bold but makes complete sense given her powers. Though they haven’t been shown as much on-screen as in the comics, she’s still a powerful being in the MCU. While most of the original Avengers and supporting characters have one major skill, Scarlet Witch’s powers are broader and thus more inline with the powers of Thanos. Plus, with Thanos responsible for Vision’s death, Scarlet Witch had a more personal reason to take the villain down than some other Avengers. Given Feige’s comments, Thanos made the right decision calling for backup rather than facing Scarlet Witch alone.
