COMIC BOOK – Currently, WandaVision does not yet have a release date. While the series likely won’t be arriving until sometime in December, it was included in a Disney+ trailer last week showcasing the upcoming titles set to arrive on the platform still this year and both the new trailer and this new key art is very exciting for fans, especially considering how much flux entertainment — particularly Marvel offerings — has been in this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, production on WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki were all shut down due to the pandemic, though production on the series reportedly resumed earlier this month.

WandaVision will likely feel much different than previous Marvel Studios projects, considering just how strange its concepts appear to be. Paul Bettany, who plays Vision in the MCU, said earlier this year that the show is

“Yes, I’m back for WandaVision… I am such an admirer of Kevin Feige, he has taken such a risk with the show, and the concept of this show. It’s beautifully written by [Jac Schaeffer] and her staff of writers – and it is f-cking bonkers,” Bettany said. “I mean it’s so out there and nuts, the choices that they are making. And fans will not have to wait that much longer… they’ll much more of an insight, very, very, soon as to what it may look and feel like.”

You can check out the official synopsis for WandaVision below.

“Marvel Studios’ ‘WandaVision’ blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems. The new series is directed by Matt Shakman; Jac Schaeffer is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ this year.”

We have an amazing new theme by Cherry Gem with hints of the Scarlet Witch and fabulous headers by Insomniac Wonderland! I decided to go retro and use some photoshoots from 2013/2014. Elizabeth has so many great shoots that I haven’t been able  to use so I decided to go that way. Hope you love it as much as I do.

THE DIRECT – Marvel Studio was set to start Phase Four with a bang, not just with their initial 2020 films Black Widow and The Eternals, but also with television shows produced exclusively for Disney+. The first Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, was set to release in August 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped production in its tracks in early March.

While the series has been recently gearing up to complete filming, the likelihood that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be able to meet their release date was becoming more and more uncertain. Now, a new report seems to confirm the inevitable news.

NEWS
According to a report from Laughing Place, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was not on the list of titles coming to Disney+ in August 2020. While Walt Disney Studios has yet to make an official statement concerning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it is expected that the show will not meet its initial August release window for the streaming service.

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier still needed to finish filming for a few days in the Czech Republic and in Atlanta, Georgia as well. While it’s unfortunate to see the show’s release officially be delayed, it was not a surprising outcome given that the series had yet to wrap principal photography.

It’s likely that the other Disney+ shows like WandaVision and Loki will also see some delays, as the Disney+ slate gets pushed back in the same way Marvel Studios’ film slate did back in April. This will give every series all the necessary time to finish filming and post-production, without having to be tied to a quickly approaching release window.

Delaying the Disney+ shows would also be necessary for the MCU’s timeline, given that the shows were created with the intentions of both affecting and being affected by the events of the films. Marvel Studios plans everything out to a tee, and while it may be a few more months before fans can see these highly-anticipated shows, there’s no doubt it will all pay off in the end.

DISNEY INSIDER – After Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series WandaVision was moved up to December 2020, the series hit a major snag, as did the rest of Hollywood due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Major film and television productions are slowly been given the green light to restart production again. According to a Facebook post by Tampa Bay Comic Con, Paul Bettany had to cancel his appearance due to being called back to resume WandaVision filming in July, the cast and crew had a wrap party back in March, but work still needs to be done, which includes reshoots.

“We finally received word from Paul Bettany’s representation, and unfortunately Paul had to cancel his appearance at TBCC this year due being called back by Disney for WandaVision filming in July, in Los Angeles. We’re working on guest additions!”

The studio has been working on post-production during the Hollywood shut down. If work indeed continues on small shoots in July, that would mean the series could still hit it’s December 2020 release.

Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, as they become the perfect married 50’s, nuclear family.

Teyonah Parris will also appear on the series as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn is playing a nosey neighbor reportedly named Agatha. Josh Stamberg will also appear alongside Randall Park as secret agents.

According to recent reports Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch was on set for the last week of filming for WandaVision, which lines up with another story reported stating longtime Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would be the antagonist for the series, as well as Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige previously stating the film will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Earlier this week, A report surfaced that Evan Peters (American Horror Story) joined the series last summer in an unknown but a key role and shot his scenes towards the end of last year. Fans are now speculating what his role could be; the popular but least likely guess is Wanda’s brother Pietro aka Quicksilver, a role he played in Fox’s X-Men universe and was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The series is also rumored to have shot in front of a live studio audience, and will pay homage to the multi-camera sitcom comedies throughout television history, including I Love Lucy.

WandaVision is expected to make its debut on Disney+ later this year.

This is from Easter

LA TIMES – Once upon a time, famous actors, musicians and authors united during a pandemic to ease children’s anxieties through storytelling.

Dolly Parton, Amy Adams, Josh Gad, Jennifer Garner, Constance Wu, Natalie Portman, Lupita Nyong’o, Reese Witherspoon, Gal Gadot, Camila Cabello, Kerry Washington and others are lending their voices to “Operation Storytime,” “Save With Stories” and more initiatives aimed at lifting kids’ — and parents’ — spirits amid coronavirus-induced uncertainty.

Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars”), Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”), Ginnifer Goodwin (“Zootopia”), Tony Hale (“Toy Story 4″), Ming-Na Wen (“Mulan”) and more Disney stars are among the latest public figures to join the literary crusade, reciting picture-book tales based on their own beloved characters.

And Parton recently launched a series called “Goodnight With Dolly,” in which the country music legend reads bedtime stories every Thursday.

Here’s how it works: Participants post social media videos of themselves reading various children’s books aloud to entertain self-quarantined families whose children are no longer in school because of public health concerns.

Here is Elizabeth’s:

THE VERGE: Marvel Studios used its big Super Bowl advertising spot to quickly tease three upcoming Disney+ series: Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision.

There wasn’t much footage from any of the series, but there was enough glimpses to tease fans. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Anthony Mackie’s Sam “Falcon” Wilson pick up Captain America’s shield and maneuver around with it. The series picks up where that arc ended, as Steve Rogers’ best friends try to navigate a world he’s no longer in. The show brings back Mackie’s Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Endgame ended with Steve Rogers handing over his Captain America shield to Sam. The teaser also showed a glimpse of Zemo’s return, the villain made famous in Captain America: Civil War.

WandaVision’s footage showed off scenes of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision interacting with each other in a house. The show was previously teased at Disney’s biennial D23 convention as a surreal sitcom-like take on their relationship. Loki had the least amount of footage, but showed actor Tom Hiddleston back in the role.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of two big Marvel series hitting Disney+ this year. The company previously announced that WandaVision would receive a 2020 release date, moving up from its original 2021 window. Both WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier will tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Much like what The Mandalorian was to Lucasfilm, all eyes will be on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as Marvel’s first big Disney+ series. Since Disney has launched Disney+, big changes behind-the-scenes have shed light on how important the integration between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the TV shows will be going forward. Kevin Feige, the visionary behind the MCU, now oversees all of Marvel Entertainment. Prior to the Disney+ launch, Jeph Loeb oversaw the various Marvel shows on various Disney networks, and streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. That changed late last year.

Now, Feige oversees everything Marvel, both cinematically and on the TV side. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be joined by the aforementioned WandaVision this year, followed by Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moonknight in the coming years.

Posted on January 21, 2020 / by AliKat in News, Sorry For Your Loss

Sad news!!! I hope they find another network to pick up the series!

The social media giant is scaling back on the number of scripted series for its streaming platform.

DEADLINE – Facebook Watch is paring back on scripted series, canceling Limetown after a single season and Sorry for Your Loss after two.

The moves come as the social media giant is paring back on scripted shows for its streaming platform, which have had some trouble breaking through despite critical acclaim for Sorry for Your Loss and generally positive notices for Limetown. Scripted series already ordered — including the third season of Real Bros of Simi Valley and Blumhouse’s Sacred Lies, which is set to premiere Feb. 20 — will still run on Facebook Watch, but the streamer will redouble its efforts in unscripted programming.

The Jada Pinkett Smith-hosted Red Table Talk has earned a Daytime Emmy nomination and regularly racks up 5 million or more views, per the company’s public stats (like other streamers, Facebook Watch doesn’t release detailed viewer data). The service’s unscripted offerings also include Returning the Favor starring Mike Rowe, the docuseries 9 Months With Courteney Cox and the talker Steve on Watch with Steve Harvey, which debuted Jan. 6.

Based on a narrative podcast of the same name, Limetown stars Jessica Biel as a journalist investigating a mass disappearance at a neuroscience research facility. Biel also executive produced the series along with her Iron Ocean partner Michelle Purple, podcast creators Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie and Midnight Radio’s Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

Sorry for Your Loss stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young widow who is trying to rebuild her life following her husband’s death. She also exec produced alongside creator Kit Steinkellner, Robin Lizzy Weiss, James Ponsoldt, Marc Turtletaub, Peter Saraf, Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala and Jon Liebman.

Facebook Watch’s retrenchment in unscripted somewhat mirrors that of YouTube, which scaled down its scripted offerings as it switched from a premium to an ad-supported model for original programming. Both companies sought to leverage their massive user bases for original programming, but with a handful of exceptions, those shows had a hard time breaking through in the Peak TV era.

Deadline first reported the news.

Posted on November 24, 2019 / by AliKat in Press, Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth Olsen plays a young widow in this thoughtful and loving series about navigating grief.

 

VOX – In Watch This, Vox critic at large Emily VanDerWerff tells you what she’s watching on TV — and why you should watch it, too. Read the archives here. This week: Sorry for Your Loss, which airs on Facebook Watch.

Every article about the TV show Sorry for Your Loss must cover the following bullet points, as though they are recorded in the Constitution:

  •  It’s a brilliantly devastating little drama, full of light and love
  • Its amazing cast is anchored by the sweet and soulful Elizabeth Olsen
  • It airs on Facebook Watch, so good luck finding it [insert boilerplate about how Facebook is destroying the planet]

All of the above, so far as it goes, is true. Sorry for Your Loss is a terrific show — one of TV’s best — but the fact that it’s sequestered within a section of Facebook that seems almost intentionally difficult to find means that extremely few people have seen it. I watched the entire second season via screener and I could not possibly imagine how anyone would organically stumble upon the show on Facebook, short of just Googling it.

And that’s why I’m writing about Sorry for Your Loss and linking to it here — I really want people to watch it. What the show does is in short supply on TV right now, and if it doesn’t get a third season (season two just ended on Tuesday, November 19), I might have to finally get mad at Mark Zuckerberg.

So what does it do that’s so unique and interesting? I’m glad you asked.

Sorry for Your Loss somehow turns the debilitating process of grief into a TV show

When I first learned the premise of Sorry for Your Loss — a young widow named Leigh (Olsen) tries to live in the wake of her husband’s death — I had the same thought that many others probably did: How in the world is that enough for a TV show? A movie, sure. A novel, absolutely. A stage play, I’m writing it right now! But a TV show? One that will air week after week after week? It can’t possibly work.

I was wrong. What makes Sorry for Your Loss so good is that it understands grief isn’t a neat arc with a beginning and an end. It’s a process of atomization. An incident happens and your whole body feels like it’s engulfed in the flames of a nuclear blast. But with every passing day, it dissipates a little more and a little more. You’re able to do more, to get out of bed, to resume your life. But you always live with the residue of what happened. Your body is now radioactive, no matter how much the most immediately deadly elements dull with time. You learn how to live with grief; you don’t learn how to defeat it.

INSTYLE – God damnit!” Elizabeth Olsen is sighing to herself — in an exasperated, this-is-the-last-thing-I-need-today kind of way — on the other end of our phone call. She only has 27 minutes to do this interview during her lunch break, she explains, and her water bottle just rolled under a car. Now, she’s trying to catch it.

The clock is ticking — down to 26 minutes, then to 25 — but I’m not too upset. It’s a relatable moment, and that’s sort of Olsen’s overall vibe. On the set of InStyle’s photoshoot, she reminded me a bit of that girl from high school — the one who was cool, but still friends with everyone. For a moment, you’re able to forget that the actress is related to mega-famous twins, or stars in Marvel movies (plus an upcoming WandaVision TV show), or is an executive producer on her Facebook Watch series, Sorry For Your Loss, in which she also plays the lead.

That last credit is the reason that we’re talking. I recently spent hours sobbing into my phone while watching nearly two seasons of Olsen as Leigh, a young woman experiencing the many stages of grief after the death of her husband. It’s not exactly a lighthearted show, but there are a few funny moments and complicated (yet highly intriguing) love stories.

“We really wanted to focus on the smallest of moments in season one,” Olsen explains, making me recall how Leigh struggled to return to her job or celebrate her birthday. “But in season two, we wanted Leigh to start off in a different place. The thing that I really wanted to work on with Kit [Steinkellner, the show’s writer and creator], was this feeling of momentum and propulsion forward. We try to take bigger risks and make bigger mistakes.”

As someone who is fully caught up on the show — which is currently on season two; a new episode is released every Tuesday — I can confidently say there are a lot of gasp-worthy moments. Risks and mistakes, especially on Leigh’s end, are aplenty.

What wasn’t a mistake, however, was having Olsen work behind the camera on the series, not just in front of. During our call, she talks at length about the experience — how much she enjoys being part of the creative process, from first draft to final cut; how she’s finally confident enough to give honest opinions; how she feels like she’s adding value. People will probably think this is boring, she tells me, but it’s nice to hear how dedicated and passionate the star is.

“It’s exhausting and you don’t get weekends,” she adds, going over her schedule, which lasts 10 months (as opposed to the four it takes to film). “It’s not just memorizing lines or doing your character study. You’re trying to make sure certain outlines sound good for three episodes from now, or that drafts look good, or edits. You give notes on that. It’s a much busier experience then just getting to be an actor, but it’s really fulfilling.”

LIVE TV APPEARANCES > 2019 > OCT 9: “LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS” STILLS

 

The actress talks about juggling “Sorry For Your Loss” with the Marvel juggernaut, while dreaming up her next great adventures.

 

NY Times – One weekend about four years ago, Elizabeth Olsen found herself in the enviable position of having a pile of scripts to read. Just barely into her career — not counting childhood cameos alongside her older sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley — she’d already raked in indie accolades for “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and ascended into the Marvel universe as Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch.

But something about Kit Steinkellner’s pilot for “Sorry for Your Loss,” and the role of Leigh Shaw, a young widow mourning the death of her husband, who either fell off a cliff or jumped, captivated her.

“I was doing a bunch of stuff that felt outside of myself, and I really wanted to be a part of something that’s a little bit more close to home,” Olsen said. Better yet, it came with an offer to be an executive producer.

“Sorry for Your Loss” quickly evolved into a critical darling, with James Poniewozik of The New York Times calling it a “quiet gem.” Season 2, now on Facebook Watch, picks up six months after the death of her husband (Mamoudou Athie, still present in flashbacks) as Leigh moves forward with baby steps: getting his comic book published posthumously, skipping grief group to have sex with her Postmates delivery guy. Then there’s the disconcerting fact that her husband’s brother (Jovan Adepo) has fallen in love with her.

Perhaps because of her paparazzi-hounded siblings, celebrity has never been a pursuit for Olsen, 30, who muses about the children she hopes to have with her fiancé, Robbie Arnett of the band Milo Greene.

“I never wanted to have a certain amount of power in the industry,” she said. “I really do love my job, and I’m happy doing just that and the charity I do, and being as private as possible.”

These are edited excerpts from the conversation.

Grief isn’t something most of us long to confront. So why can’t we turn away from Leigh and her story?

I think going through grief, whether it’s losing a parent or a spouse or a best friend, is a really isolating experience. And I feel like we try and be as authentic to the truth as possible. We also try to handle mental illness and addiction the same way. For a show like ours to hopefully make people not feel alone and to feel seen, that’s a special experience. And the thing that’s been interesting with Facebook is that there’s a built-in community for people, if they want it.

Is there any particular experience you find yourself drawing on to tap into her grief?

PUBLIC APPEARANCES > 2019 > OCT 10: BUZZ FEED’ S AM TO DM

 

Buzz Feed – Attention, Marvel fans: Elizabeth Olsen is on board with the idea of an all-women superhero movie.

Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, told BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM morning show that such a movie would have a “huge impact.”

“I think people really love these characters,” she said. “I feel like all the men in Marvel movies have done such a brilliant job with satisfying a lot of things our audiences want, and they’re funny and they’re talented. And so are all the women. And to give them more screentime, I think, would be a huge impact because comics aren’t just for boys who want to watch big boys.”

Fans were thrilled by a scene from Avengers: Endgame in which all the Marvel women joined forces to protect the Infinity Gauntlet.

So it won’t come as too much of a surprise that Brie Larson, aka Captain Marvel, told Variety earlier this week the idea of an all-women movie had been “truly discussed” at the highest levels of Marvel.

“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to [Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige] and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,’” Larson told Variety, adding: “You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”

Olsen said it’s important that Marvel makes films to cater to its diverse fanbase — which includes many women. “Especially when you go to conventions, you really see that,” she said.

USA Today – Elizabeth Olsen stopped by “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Thursday and told the hosts she auditioned for the role of Khaleesi and forgot she even tried out for the role because the experience just went so terribly.

“I also forgot that I auditioned for it,” the “Avengers” star said. “Someone had asked about a terrible audition experience – a journalist, not a good time to remember something like that, and I was like, ‘I actually really love auditioning; I can’t really think of anything, and I was like, ‘Oh! Right! I auditioned for “Game of Thrones.'”

Olsen shared she was reading with the casting director because no one else was available, and she was auditioning the scene where Khaleesi gets burned alive.

“That was the furthest I ever got. It was that bad,” Olsen said.

Kelly Ripa asked the actress if she knows when an audition is going bad.

“It was horrible,” Olsen explained. “This is uncomfortable for me. I’m sure it’s awkward for her, like no one’s going to enjoy this experience.”

Olsen said now she would just tell the casting director if she was having a rough audition rather than going through the whole process. She also noted that even when she gets offered roles, she still asks to audition just to feel out the “vibe.”

ETOnline – Elizabeth Olsen is moving forward with her life.

In Facebook Watch’s half-hour drama, Sorry for Your Loss, Olsen returns as Leigh Shaw, a young widow struggling to put her life back together following her husband’s unexpected death. The upcoming second season continues Leigh’s complicated journey as she navigated the aftershocks of loss and tries to move on amid revelations of the timeline of her husband’s death.

ET exclusively debuts the first official photos from the sophomore run — six in all — which returns cast members Kelly Marie Tran as Leigh’s sister, Jules; Jovan Adepo as Leigh’s brother-in-law, Danny; Mamoudou Athie as Leigh’s late husband, Matt; and Janet McTeer as Leigh and Jules’ mother, Amy.

Singer-songwriter Julia Michaels also wrote a special song, titled “If You Need Me,” for the new season, inspired by the community formed from the first season, as well as the stories and comments shared by the Sorry for Your Loss official Facebook group. Michaels met with survivors of grief, whose meetings informed the lyrics to the song.

“Even when someone is not with you, you can still feel them with you. I wanted the chorus to be ‘If you need me, I’m there’… even if I can’t physically be there, I’m still there,” Michaels said. “That can be about the person that isn’t visibly here anymore, and it can be about the community they have built within Sorry for Your Loss.”

Creator Kit Steinkellner and season one showrunner Lizzy Weiss spoke to ET last October about exploring the different ways each of their characters experiences grief and the difficult conversations they have about it.

“This is a show that is empathetic to our characters, for all their flaws and shortcomings. They really are trying their best. We love them dearly. We hope what we’re saying about sensitive issues is just in the way we love and support our characters, we love and support the people in our lives who are struggling with these issues and ultimately, our show advocates for understanding and kindness above all else,” Steinkellner said.

“We don’t talk, particularly in American culture, about death. It felt terrifying to most of us, because we have not been raised in a culture where we ask people in our lives, ‘What do you want if you go?’ These are really, really hard questions,” Weiss added. “What is fascinating is there is now a zeitgeist for shows that are touching on grief right now. Maybe there is a movement that’s happening to get people to think about grief and loss differently and face it and have conversations most people don’t have.”

Sorry for Your Loss returns Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET with the first three episodes on Facebook Watch.

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.

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.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERElizabeth Olsen’s Disney+ series could be primed to take on ‘House of M,’ the 2005 event story in which Scarlet Witch remade reality following a personal tragedy.

Scarlet Witch, one of comics’ most powerful and complex characters, is arguably the most underserved Avenger in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. WandaVision, Marvel Studios’ upcoming streaming series for Disney+, aims to change all that.

The mutant offspring of Magneto in the comics, an “enhanced” member of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the MCU, Wanda Maximoff is an exceptionally complicated, broken-not-sprained character in any medium. No better was this explored than in one of Marvel’s greatest stories, the game-changing and tragic House of M, a 2005 event comic from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Olivier Coipel in which Wanda reshaped all of reality after the loss of her children. In her new world, mutants reigned supreme, while normal humans were second-class citizens.

Now that the X-Men are back under Marvel Studios’ roof, Wanda and the MCU seem primed to mine some of the rich drama that the House of M built. In doing so, the Disney+ show — which, when first announced, was met with puzzlement bordering on indifference by fandom — could become as important to Marvel’s live-action future as M was to its comic legacy.

“We’re going to have a lot of fun. We’re gonna get weird, get deep and finally understand Wanda Maximoff as Scarlet Witch.” That was the edict revealed from the stage of Marvel’s Hall H panel when Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced the overall narrative strategy behind the upcoming WandaVision series, slated for release Spring 2021 on Disney+ and set to spill into the horror-tinged Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, opening May 7, 2021 and also to feature Olsen’s Wanda.

WandaVision, set after Avengers: Endgame, aims to explore the fallout Vision’s death has on Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen). The best, and most readily available, way to deliver on that is to tell the House of M story through the MCU’s lens.

COMIC BOOK – In addition to her own Disney+ series, the Scarlet Witch Elizabeth Olsen has also been confirmed to co-star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is arguably one of the coolest film titles ever given in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Benedict Cumberbatch will, of course, return as the Sorcerer Supreme and the film has also been rumored to feature the return of Benedict Wong as Wong, although he wasn’t formally announced during tonight’s presentation.

While the film is still in the pre-production phase as it won’t debut until May 7, 2021, director Scott Derrickson did share a chilling tease, “We are going to make the first scary MCU film,” although Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige did jokingly respond with “It’s gonna be PG-13 and you’re going to like it!”

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS

Feige introduced the second film in the “Doctor Strange” franchise, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and called the director, Scott Derrickson, and star Benedict Cumberbatch to the stage to a rousing welcome.

In a surprise twist, Feige brought out Elizabeth Olsen, who also stars in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and they talked about how “WandaVision”—the Disney+ series that Olsen will star in as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch—connects directly to the feature-film storyline.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” hits theaters on May 7, 2021.

VULTURE – What’s for you will not pass you, according to a lot of quote cards on Pinerest, and the role of Daenerys Targaryen was apparently not for Elizabeth Olsen. At Vulture’s Emmy studio this week, Olsen told us about one of her early auditions, which happened to be for a certain HBO fantasy about ten years ago. “When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that,” she said. “It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.” Olsen says she auditioned with a monologue from the end of the first season: “[From] after she just burned. And she’s making this speech to thousands of people about how she’s their queen. They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, you did it in both. It was terrible. Anytime someone says, ‘Bad audition story.’ That’s one I remember.”

Now, though, Olsen is as Thrones-obsessed as the rest of us. “I’m just so deep in Game of Thrones that all I can think about is Kit Harington,” she said. “I mean, he’s just brainwashed me.” Welcome to the club!

Finally!



Posted on December 08, 2018 / by AliKat in Magazine Scans, Photoshoots, Press

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – As Scarlet Witch, Elizabeth Olsen doesn’t have a mystical hammer or state-of-the-art suit. Instead, she flings bolts of energy at bad guys while bending and contorting like a Martha Graham dancer. But she still needs a stuntwoman for those tricky moments like when she gets thrown through a restaurant window.

“I love fighting, and I love wrecking through things,” says C.C. Ice, the stuntwoman who got the job. “So if you want to throw me through that door, that’s where I’m going.”

Growing up in a small town in Missouri, one of 13 kids, Ice, 38, was exposed to stunts at a very early age, mostly at the insistence of her five older brothers. “Somebody would have an idea like, ‘Hey let’s jump down the staircase using a trash bag as a parachute. C.C.’s the smallest, let’s have her try it!'” she recalls. By way of a gig as a magician’s assistant (where she learned about blades, fire and how to fall through trap doors without getting hurt), she made her way from Missouri to the East Coast and then to Los Angeles in 2007, just in time for the writers strike. She remembers: “I was like, ‘I’m here!’ and they were like, ‘We’re on strike!’”

Ice found steady pay as a production assistant while training for stunt work on the side. She received her SAG card as a stunt performer in 2011, and moved to Atlanta, following Hollywood productions that were migrating to Georgia to take advantage of film tax breaks. That’s where she ended up landing the gig doing utility stunts on Captain America: Civil War, after which she was paired with Olsen on Avengers: Infinity War, beginning with six months of stunt prep.

So far, the biggest challenge for both actress and double hasn’t been smashing through windows — it’s been pinning down the character’s strange, twisted action moves. Olsen remembers director Joss Whedon visually demonstrating. “He would show us his knees bending lots of weird ways and his fingers going crazy,” recalls the 29-year-old actress, who worked with choreographer Jennifer White on Scarlet’s moves in Age of Ultron. “We were having a really hard time finding people who understood the physical language,” says Olsen. “C.C. elevated us.”

Olsen and Ice’s work will next be seen in the upcoming Avengers film, and, with the plot being kept under lock and key, Scarlet Witch’s fate remains unknown. But, according to Olsen, Ice wil be able to handle it all. “The crazy thing to me about C.C. is she can do anything you ask her to do,” says the actress. “I’ve talked about [her] to so many people.” On a recent set, another actress was recommending her stuntwoman to Olsen. “I was just like, ‘Girl, you don’t even know my stunt person. Let me know if you need a stunt person!’”

COLLIDER – On the heels of yesterday’s news that Disney’s upcoming streaming service would be featuring a Winter Soldier/Falcon-focused limited TV series, it looks like the previously announced Scarlet Witch standalone series will be a two-hander. Longtime MCU player Paul Bettany, who has been the voice of JARVIS since 2008’s Iron Man before getting to appear on screen in the artificial flesh as the superheroic android Vision, is now expected to join Elizabeth Olsen in the streaming series.

/Film reports that Bettany will have a significant part to play in the Scarlet Witch limited series in a narrative that will likely focus on the relationship between Vision and Wanda Maximoff before the arrival of Thanos and his dusty fingers. Like the Tom Hiddleston-starring Loki series and the previously mentioned Winter Soldier/Falcon show, Scarlet Witch is expected to be six to eight episodes long and won’t be connected to either the Netflix Marvel TV universe or that of Disney’s broadcast banner, ABC. Production of the streaming series will be handled by Marvel Studios and not Marvel Television, bringing blockbuster-like budgets to each focused, limited season.

Not much more information is available on any of the MCU TV series, except for the fact that Empire writer Malcolm Spellman will write the limited series centering on Falcon and Winter Solidier. We should expect further confirmation from Disney proper once they’ve got their marketing machine all revved up and ready to go with official cast confirmations, title reveals, release dates, and more. Disney’s not alone in trying to get their many-headed streaming service up and available to the masses, but they might just be the furthest along the track in the quest to dethrone Netflix.

COLLIDER – Once you get past the fact that one of the best shows of the year is on Facebook — yes Facebook! — you’ll know that Sorry for Your Loss is indeed worth it. The series follows Leigh Shaw (Elizabeth Olsen), whose husband Matt (Mamoudou Athie) died suddenly three months before we meet her. The first season chronicles the following two months over ten half-hour episodes, as Leigh is still coming to terms with her life without Matt. But from the onset, Sorry for Your Loss is at heart a family drama that includes Leigh’s adopted sister Jules (Kelly Marie Tran), a recovering alcoholic, and their mother Amy (Janet McTeer), who owns a fitness studio where both her daughters work. The series also tracks Leigh’s complicated relationship with Matt’s brother Danny (Jovan Adepo), the only person who really understands the depth of her loss, and her friendships that have suffered in the wake of such a devastating event. It’s a beautiful series that never gets too dark, and yet it doesn’t shy away from frank and difficult discussions about relationships, depression, and grappling with death.

So go watch it! Or finish it. For now, spoilers below.

Posted on September 23, 2018 / by AliKat in Interviews, Photoshoots, Sorry For Your Loss

We sit down with the actress and executive producer to talk about the meaning of true strength and knowing when it’s time to slow down.

 

COVETEUR – The two times we met Elizabeth Olsen couldn’t be more different. The first, we were dancing all night long and hiking all day in the middle of Utah’s Canyon Point for our mutual friend Andi Potamkin’s wedding at Amangiri. It was one for the books. This time, we swapped the champagne for sparkling water on a packed press day during the pinnacle of TIFF and nestled into a booth to talk about Olsen’s elegant performance (and her debut as executive producer) in Facebook Watch’s episodic series Sorry for Your Loss. Olsen plays Leigh, a bereaved widow struggling to navigate her new life—a role that has her gracefully vacillating between debilitating mourning and comfort in memories (as shown in flashbacks), and the challenges within the banality of everyday life between. The realistic portrayal of grief depicted in Sorry for Your Loss, Olsen tells us, made her re-examine the meaning of true strength (hint: it’s not the antiquated belief that hiding emotion during a time of mourning is a strength). We chatted about what it took to prep for a complex role, her new venture into producing, and played a quick-fire round of Qs.

How did you get involved with this project?

“I had read the script three years ago. I had just gone through, not a death, but a loss and a life adjustment, so I related to my character [and the feeling of] being completely confused about how to move forward. We haven’t really told an authentic story about grief and the everyday—how it’s not something that you go through the stages and get out on the other side. It’s a continual adjustment to your life, and you can’t do anything but move forward.

“I always think about how we all have a backpack of shit that we carry with us from all the trauma that we’ve experienced (or all the loss we’ve had or the pains we’ve gone through) that are unique to each individual person. We walk through life with this weight on our back, but we walk through it anyway; you’re fine, and that’s just you. And then you add an extra loss, or something new, an adjustment, and it becomes a huge new weight—you never lose the weight, it never goes away, you just adjust how you walk through life and move forward. [Sorry for Your Loss] is not fancy and it’s not dramatic, but what I love about the show is that it gets cozy in the mundane and the monotony of that experience, how long it takes, and how it never goes away. You continue to have relationships with this person [you lost].”

Did you find it challenging capturing the complexities of grief?

VARIETY – Elizabeth Olsen has been appearing in films since she was about four years old, but her acting career began in earnest with the 2011 film “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” Now she’s trying her hand at the small-screen with “Sorry for Your Loss,” a which she not only stars in but also executive produces.

“Long-form has always been interesting to me because all of the different turns a character can take and change and evolve over time,” Olsen tells Variety. “And with Kit [Steinkellner]’s pilot, I just found not only the character could be someone that I immediately felt connection to — it made me laugh, it made me cry — and it was at a time in my life where I was in a transition.”

The show, which will launch the first four episodes at once on Facebook Watch Sept. 18, centers on Olsen’s character Leigh, a recent widow, as she struggles to get through the days without her husband and, to some degree, reassess their relationship since it came to a premature end.

“There are so many stories about love, but the stories about death all feel so sappy to me or melodramatic,” Olsen says, “and I just feel like this handled grief in a palatable way where it can actually be a part of a conversation and be an interesting character study of someone going through an extreme trauma for the first time.”

VARIETY – Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

Marvel and Disney had no comment.

There’s an important distinction from other Marvel small screen efforts, however. The actors who portrayed these heroes and villains in the Avengers films and their spin-offs, such as Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, are expected to play them in the streaming shows. Moreover, though sources close to the production are staying mum on the cost of the programming, the budgets are expected to be hefty rivaling those of a major studio productions. Each series is expected to include six to eight episodes. Marvel Studios will produce the shows and Kevin Feige, the guru of all things MCU, is expected to take a hands-on role in their development.

The pricey gamble with one of the crown jewels of the Disney film empire is a sign of how much the company has riding on its direct-to-consumer platform. As companies such as Netflix and Amazon continue to grow their user base, Disney is trying to find a way to establish a toehold in the streaming revolution upending Hollywood. The company has kept the details of the service close to the vest, beyond saying that it will likely cost less than Netflix and will launch at some point in late 2019.

Disney has already started to unwind its licensing deals in order to put as much premium content on the platform as possible. That’s meant that the company is forfeiting billions of dollars in profit, as well as shouldering the cost of developing the technology. The company has announced a number of high-profile projects, including a Star Wars series overseen by “Jungle Book” director Jon Favreau, a show based on “High School Musical,” and a live-action “Lady and the Tramp” film. The company also plans to offer several new releases when it launches, including its live-action “Dumbo” film and “Captain Marvel.”

Many of these projects are expensive bets. The Star Wars series will reportedly cost $100 million and the movies are expected to carry budgets north of $25 million. However, Disney has to spend big to make an impression. Netflix, its main rival, has 125 million subscribers globally and has lured top talent like Ryan Murphy (“American Horror Story”), Kenya Barris (“Black-ish”), and Shonda Rhimes (“Grey’s Anatomy”) to its platform with record-setting deals.

Elizabeth Olsen had a very unusual childhood. As the other sister to the Olsen twins, Elizabeth had a front row seat to her sisters’ experience in the spotlight, media circus included, but she also witnessed what it was like to be a working actor—something she wanted to be but was embarrassed to admit. As she says, “I had this fear that people would think I didn’t earn or deserve the things I worked for because of who I was naturally associated with.”

The nepotism critique motivated her to prove her worth, but really, Elizabeth’s a hard worker by nature. After all, you don’t get dubbed NYU’s notorious “Rehearsal Nazi” for nothing. And the hard work paid off because she started getting roles, including the one that led to her breakout performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene, before she graduated college. Since then, Elizabeth has conquered the world of independent film (Wind River, Kodachrome, Ingrid Goes West) and joined Marvel’s Avengers franchise as superhero Scarlet Witch.

She may play a superhero, but she’s still got her head screwed on straight when it comes seeing fame and adulation for what it actually is. She’s the kind of actor who loves the work, the craft, and she’s also the kind of artist who wants to take risks. Her newest project, Sorry for Your Loss, is a Facebook Watch series that explores grief, an uncomfortable subject that isn’t often examined in Western culture. But as you’ll see, Elizabeth will rise to any challenge thrown her way.

Elizabeth joins Off Camera to talk about the biggest lesson she’s learned from her family, why she may be one of the few actors who likes to audition, and why she’s the most Zen type A person you’ll ever meet.

Elizabeth Olsen opens up about experiencing panic attacks, and why she ‘didn’t want anyone to know’ at the time

 

YAHOO – The statuesque Elizabeth Olsen is the picture of poise, but she has ups and downs, just like the rest of us. The actress revealed to Build on Wednesday that while filming a movie earlier in her career, she began to experience panic attacks.

Olsen was visiting Build to promote her new Facebook Watch show Sorry for Your Loss. When asked about some of the most important lessons she’s learned from other actors, the 29-year-old got candid about her time on the set of a 2012 movie, Red Lights, working with legends like Sigourney Weaver and Robert De Niro.

“I did this movie called Red Lights that no one saw,” she recalled. “It was actually a really weird time in my life because I was experiencing panic attacks for the first time.”

She kept her struggle to herself, however, for fear of professional complications.

“I didn’t want anyone to know, because I thought they wouldn’t insure me or something,” she said.

And it wasn’t just one or two incidents. “I kept having panic attacks while filming, but I didn’t let anyone know. It was really weird.”

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: Facebook Watch gets into the quality TV game with a dramatic exploration of grieving and memory starring Elizabeth Olsen, Janet McTeer and Kelly Marie Tran.

In an all-too-glutted landscape of scripted television, the path to programming legitimacy can take a while. It’s one thing to throw a show or two on your cable network or digital platform. It isn’t always the same thing to launch a show that cuts through the clutter and demands the attention of critics and viewers alike.

AMC did it fast with Mad Men. Netflix did it fast with House of Cards. On the other hand, look at Paramount Network and its tough run before Yellowstone. Or look at the number of shows Crackle produces that I could list to probably blank stares.

As an overworked TV critic writing for an overloaded TV-watching audience, it’s my sad duty or my pleasure to report that with Sorry for Your Loss, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend and online Sept. 18, Facebook Watch is officially on the board as a potential destination for quality content.

That’s not to malign the reality shows starring Tom Brady and Lonzo Ball or something called Sacred Lies that I keep meaning to watch more of. It also isn’t to say that Sorry for Your Loss is flawless, top-tier television. It’s just the first Facebook Watch show to make me go, “OK, if this were on Showtime or Amazon, this might be in Emmy conversations.”

The series, created by Kit Steinkellner, has a strong pedigree, with Switched at Birth veteran Lizzy Weiss serving as showrunner and James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) directing early installments.

ET ONLINE – Kate Spade New York brightened up New York Fashion Week with the brand’s first-ever runway show on Friday.

Debuting new creative director Nicola Glass’ designs, the line, which previously only stuck to presentations, sent colorful wares and whimsical accessories down the pink runway, which paid a special tribute to the late designer who died in June. Spade sold the company in 2006 and stepped down from the brand completely in 2007, but her name continued to remain.

“I feel that all the work I do with the team is a legacy to her because it’s still her name,” Glass told ET’s Kristen Gill. “We were listening to a lot of the tributes after Kate’s passing and one of the phrases that really kept resonating was she left a little bit of sparkle wherever she went and we wanted to use that in a way to tribute her today, so there’s an element of sparkle throughout the collection — whether it’s a touch in the makeup or there’s a line in the middle of the runway that’s this beautiful pink carpet that is a glitter line, so that’s one of the ways were tributing to her.”

COLLIDER – Grief is a part of life. No matter who you are or where you go, you’re going to lose someone or something you love somewhere along the way. Such is the basis for Sorry for Your Loss, the new series that explore the process of grieving and learning to go on with your life. Elizabeth Olsen stars (and executive produces) as Leigh, a young woman who has to pick herself up and start over again after her husband dies unexpectedly.

The 10-episode series premieres on Facebook Watch Tuesday, September 18th with four all new episodes. Two new episodes will drop on the streaming platform every Tuesday at 6PM PT/9PM ET .

Written and created by playwright, Kit Steinkellner (Z: The Beginning of Everything), with James Pondsoldt (The Spectacular Now) executive producing and directing multiple episodes, Sorry for Your Loss also stars Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Jovan Adepo (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan), Mamoudou Athie (The Get Down), and Janet McTeer (Jessica Jones). The series will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before heading to Facebook Watch. See the first trailer below.

 

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Sorry For Your Loss is a half hour drama on Facebook Watch that stars Elizabeth Olsen as Leigh Shaw, a young widow struggling to put her life back together in the wake of her husband’s unexpected death. The show is simultaneously devastating and uplifting, with grounded, flawed characters desperate to find humor anywhere they can. The series dives into grief as an unavoidable, universal, transformative part of life. Leigh’s journey will teach us that grief is not something merely to endure, medicate away or “muscle through,” but an essential part of the human experience.”

Leigh (Elizabeth Olsen) is trying to move on.

 

In Facebook Watch’s Sorry For Your Loss, Olsen (who also serves as an executive producer) plays a young widow who, following the sudden death of her husband, finds her life — and every relationship in it — changed by the event. Written and created by playwright Kit Steinkellner (Amazon’s Z: The Beginning of Everything), the half-hour drama also stars Kelly Marie Tran (in her first role since joining the Star Wars franchise), Jovan Adepo (The Leftovers), Mamoudou Athie (Unicorn Store), and Janet McTeer (Marvel’s Jessica Jones). The 10-episode half-hour series will premiere on Facebook Watch on Sept. 18.

 


 

The Avengers: Infinity War alum stars as Leigh Shaw, who struggles to live without her husband, Matt (Mamoudou Athie). But don’t call her weak: Leigh is tough and fierce (and sometimes admittedly judgmental). She knows she can be resilient, but grief complicates her already complicated life.

BORGEN – From their declaration of support to the creation of their own organizations, celebrities are using their influence to generate help for those affected by global poverty. These five superhero actors fight injustice beyond the movie set and prove that saving the world from poverty is not just a fictional story.

 

Elizabeth Olsen Gets Involved in Sustainable Community Development

Elizabeth Olsen’s character, Scarlet Witch, was coerced into working with villains but later joined the Avengers. Similarly, Olsen discovered her call to philanthropy in the real world during a trip to Nicaragua. When a yoga retreat got cancelled, she decided to volunteer in San Juan del Sur, when she and numerous local citizens repaired desks, updated athletic equipment and renovated latrines. All this was done through the Latitude Project, which encourages sustainability and community participation. Also, they collaborate with local businesses to maximize the amount of resources allocated to restoration projects. Olsen told InStyle that the Latitude Project has no overhead costs, so people can see their donations go directly to those in need.

E! NEWS – Still reeling from the final moments in Avengers: Infinity War?

E! News has an exclusive look at Paul Bettany, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin, Chris Evans, Danai Gurira, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen and Sebastian Stan filming the devastating finale, culminating in—spoiler alert!—Thanos activating the Infinity Gauntlet and snapping his fingers, wiping out half the galaxy’s population.

Black Panther? Bye. Groot? Gone. Spider-Man? See ya.

The final battle occurs after Thanos goes on a smash and grab across the universe to collect all six Infinity Stones, giving him unparalleled power. The Mind Stone is embedded in Vision’s forehead, bringing Thanos to Wakanda—where the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and a host of other superheroes are preparing to fight him to the death. “When Thanos shows up, we really wanted to make this the most powerful moment ever,” executive producer Trinh Tran says in a bonus featurette (included on the digital and Blu-ray editions of the blockbuster). Of course, deciding which heroes would vanish was a challenge. “In terms of our choices about who Thanos would end up eradicating with his snap, it was very story-focused. How do we pay off each individual character’s storyline most profoundly?” co-director Anthony Russo asks. “The first person to go is Bucky Barnes, and it’s shot from Captain America’s perspective.”

The actress opens up about ignoring Hollywood norms and why she’ll never enjoy Instagram

 

 

HARPERS BAZAAR – Marvel films don’t often go hand in hand with low-key actresses. Big Hollywood blockbusters tend to act as magnets for showy, big-time names and the kind of stars who like to eat out at flashy restaurants amid wails of dwindling privacy. Elizabeth Olsen is an anomaly to the formula.

 

For the past three years, the LA-based actress has played Scarlet Witch in the Avengers franchise, a superhero who can alter both probability and reality. Next week sees the culmination of the Marvel film series – the release of Avengers: Infinity War, which brings the giant superhero ensemble together. The cast is huge and the hype is massive, and yet Elizabeth Olsen would rather be at home with her friends putting her newfound break-making skills to the test.

 

“If I could do whatever I wanted for the day, I’d start with going to the gym or doing some sort of workout, then I’d go to the grocery store because my favourite thing to do is grocery shop,” she says. “The night before I would have prepped bread, like dough, then the next day I’d bake bread and create a delicious meal, sit outside in the sun, eat delicious food all day with people I love.”

 

It sounds like every clichéd LA wellness trend wrapped up in one, the type of day you’ve seen over and again on influencer Instagram pages. But none of it is is designed to be broadcast – Olsen isn’t keen on social media (in fact, one of her latest films, Ingrid Goes West explored the dark ridiculousness of Instagram); she only recently joined and, to her horror, has already amassed 1.1 million followers.

Her sisters might make the headlines, but Elizabeth Olsen prefers to fly under the radar.

 

 

THE SUNDAY TIMES STYLE – It’s cold in Hollywood. On a backlot in Studio City that has more in common with an Essex construction site, I’m shivering in a temporary office, waiting for a gofer who I’m told will take me to Elizabeth Olsen. I watch the back of a tall brunette in a backwards baseball cap and Timberlands and contemplate where Olsen could possibly be in all this prosaic functionality. Ensconced, I suspect, in one of those “better” places reserved for cast, sipping something hot with almond milk. Only when the runner turns around to approach me… She is Elizabeth Olsen. “I’d love to say I drink coffee with almond milk,” she says, her voice low, wry and husky, “but it tastes f****** disgusting.”

 

On the Hollywood behavioural spectrum, the 29-year-old Olsen — Lizzie to those who know her — is at the end marked “very unshowy”. “When I get photographed, it’s never leaving a cool restaurant,” she says drily. “I’m always at the grocery store buying toilet paper.” This is all the more impressive given her lineage: her older sisters are twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, 31, the child TV stars turned fashion designers of The Row — their diffusion line, Elizabeth and James, is named after her and her brother. I’ve been warned not to talk too much about her sisters, but when I do, Olsen gets it: “Of course people are curious. When you have a public figure in your family, people forget that you have, like, 800 other members of it.” She has made occasional appearances on the brand’s front row, as well as at Miu Miu — Mrs Prada gave her the seal of approval when she cast Olsen for an ad campaign in 2014, a signal that she was the Chloë Sevigny-like girl of the moment. More recently, she has starred in H&M’s SS18 campaign film dancing the tango with Winona Ryder.

 

In general, however, the younger Olsen has eschewed all Hollywood peacockery. In fact, in the seven years since her breakthrough lead as the escapee from an abusive cult in Martha Marcy May Marlene, which led to a Bafta rising-star nomination and a quiet reputation for dark indie films, the only scandalous headline she’s had is (and I paraphrase): “Elizabeth Olsen is so low-key.” “‘She’s high-strung but low-key!’” she drawls, nailing the sarcasm. “‘She has a hundred neuroses, but so low-key.’”

 

She takes me to her new “office”, a prefab that resembles a halfway house, empty but for a hefty brown sofa that looks like vintage DFS; she curls up on it cupping a grim-looking takeaway tea. From here she will be executive producing and starring in a 10-part dramedy about a grieving widow called Sorry for Your Loss, for Facebook’s new streaming platform, Watch. As this is a #MeToo world, the team have just watched a video on harassment in the workplace and listened to a talk by a lawyer. “I was like, ‘Wow, this is really f****** thorough.’ Apparently even if someone overhears something really inappropriate that’s still considered harassment. Even though it’s not told to them directly. I was, like, ‘This is crazy shit.’”

 

Olsen admits she is one of the least likely people to collaborate with a social-media company: “I told them, ‘I’m not gonna create a Facebook page for my character.’” Until recently she was a confirmed iPhobe, but she reluctantly joined Instagram two years ago and now has 1.1m followers, which she finds amusing: “I don’t understand the acronyms, but I figured that #WCW was Woman Crush Wednesday.” She posted a picture of her “inspiration”, former jailbird Martha Stewart. “All I want to do is be a homemaker. I started baking bread in January,” she declares rather maniacally. “I want to make my own yeast next.”

EVENING STANDARD – Wind River actress Elizabeth Olsen has built up her reputation working on a string of acclaimed indie films.

 

But the star is worried that becoming too much of a household name could make her on-screen characters less believable.

 

The 29-year-old even said she had to think twice about joining the cast of the blockbuster Avengers movies as Scarlet Witch.

 

She told A List: “I did and I still do [have concerns]. I still think, ‘Uh! Who would I have worked with if I hadn’t done a superhero movie?’

 

“And then you’re like, ‘Ah forget it’. It’s a woulda shoulda coulda kind of thing.

 

“I did think about [the difference] because it’s an association — an image thing — and you still want to be taken seriously for other kinds of story-telling.

 

“You also don’t want to get bigger than your characters ever — there are some actors that are hard to watch because you think of them as [a famous character]… and so you’re like, ‘I can’t think of you as this person who’s a janitor…’ ”

SCREEN RANT – Avengers: Infinity War picks up its character story arcs and team dynamics from where Captain America: Civil War left most of its Avengers, disassembled, but not everyone had a break up, so to speak. Vision and Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch have since become romantically involved, as the odd pair were in Marvel Comics, and that poses some interesting challenges for the two heroes given that one of them was brought to life with an Infinity Stone that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s greatest villain is after.

 

What happens when Thanos and his army seeks out the Mind Gem that’s keeping Vision alive? Does Vision even need it anymore? Can Wanda’s powers (which also derive from that Infinity Stone) be used to keep Vision alive instead?

 

We traveled to Pinewood Atlanta Studios in June 2017 to visit the set of Avengers: Infinity War and spent a day chatting with cast and crew, including Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olsen. At the time, secrecy was at a maximum but unofficial set photos from earlier during principal photography revealed the pair together, romantically, and Vision embracing more of a human look. We began by asking about the sequence we saw being shot that day, where Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and his team land in Wakanda, seeking assistance and bringing them a warning of what’s coming.

 

In this scene, you guys get off the quinjet, Vision seems a bit hurt. What happened to Vision?

Paul Bettany: Oh, I just had some really bad brain freeze. … I had a really bad, I got a curry on the plane. … I got skewered.

Elizabeth Olsen: In front of a kabob shop.

Paul Bettany: In front of a kabob shop, which is ironic. … And these bad guys are trying to get the stone out of my head and so Wanda and I fought them off and then we’ve ended up here for surgery.

Elizabeth Olsen: Yes, we’re trying to. … I always get confused on how much we can talk about. … Like are we allowed to explain what we try and do in Shuri’s lab? [Publicist: “No”] No, okay. So forget that bit.

Paul Bettany: I gotta get fixed up.

REFINERY 29: “Happiness is bullshit.” That’s how the trailer for upcoming Netflix film Kodachrome starts, but don’t let that throw you off. What follows is a charming, funny, and warm preview into the movie directed by Mark Raso and starring Jason Sudeikis, Ed Harris, and Elizabeth Olsen.

 

Sudeikis plays Matt, a son who hasn’t spoken to his photographer father (Harris) in over a decade, until Zoe (Olsen) shows up on his doorstep asking him to drive his father to Dwayne’s Photo in Parsons, Kansas, the only place in the world that still develops Kodachrome film (this is true, and it has a wonderfully retro website complete with a t-shirt for purchase).

 

“He’s dying,” Zoe tells him, but Matt has his own problems. He’s a struggling A&R executive at Spitting Devil Records who will lose his job unless he manages to poach a big band from Sony. The two storylines come together, according to Billboard, when Matt realizes the band he’s after is touring along the very route he, his father, and Zoe must take to Kansas. What ensues is your classic road trip story with an excellent soundtrack.

 

Through the trip, the father and son grapple with their broken relationship, while Matt and Zoe are on the brink of a new one. In the end, it’s a story about life, and the different ways we choose to treasure it.

 

“Take pictures, they stop time,” Ben (Harris) says. “Commit moments to eternity.”

 

The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and will arrive on Netflix on April 20. You can watch the full trailer for Kodachrome below:

Olsen appears alongside her “Avengers: Infinity War” co-stars on the latest Empire cover, although you’ll most likely have trouble recognizing her.

 

 

INDIEWIRE – UPDATE (March 22): Empire has given the following statement to Newsweek: “Empire magazine did not make any alteration to the ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ artwork supplied to them by Disney and Marvel Studios, that appears on the May 2018 cover.”

 

Earlier: Elizabeth Olsen has a question to ask Empire Magazine: “Does this look like me?” The actress appears alongside her “Avengers: Infinity War” co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Danai Gurira, and Dave Bautista on one of the publication’s new covers, but her face appears so photoshopped that you might not even recognize Olsen as her character Scarlet Witch. Olsen took to Instagram to call out the publication.

 

The image is found on one of six new Empire covers celebrating the release of the Marvel tentpole and a decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Olsen reprises her role as Scarlet Witch, which she first played back in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The character is expected to be a major presence in “Infinity War” given her relationship with Vision, who is in possession of the Mind Stone. Thanos will no doubt be targeting Vision and Scarlet Witch.

 

The actress was hardly the only one who noticed Empire’s egregious photoshopping. Fans took to social media in shock and confusion over the cover. IndieWire has reached out to Olsen’s representatives for comment.

 

Nonetheless I’ve loaded the Empire scans into the gallery!

The iconic actresses celebrate female empowerment and friendship with an epic dance off.

 

 

H&M – It’s finally here! Shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina, H&M’s Spring fashion campaign film sees actress Elizabeth Olsen dance out from a local café and into the streets. There, she’s joined by a cast of strong women – including top models Imaan Hammam, Andreea Diaconu and Anna Ewers – all wearing flowing dresses, wide-leg trousers, embroidered jeans and sophisticated blouses while dancing through the city.

 

“It was such a thrill to be in Buenos Aires for the H&M Spring campaign, and more importantly, to be surrounded by such a wonderful cast of strong women. The entire experience was incredibly inspiring,” says Elizabeth Olsen.

 

After dancing through Buenos Aires, Elizabeth Olsen inevitably finds her way back to the café, where she’s joined by one of Hollywood’s most iconic actresses.

 

“I loved the way that the campaign really celebrated women in a very authentic way. I found that to be really refreshing and much needed right now in this culture. They are celebrating themselves and each other,” says Winona Ryder.

CNN – Marvel’s Avengers have taken on aliens, robots and even each other. If the latest trailer for the Disney studio’s new superhero movie is any indication of what’s next, they are about to take on their greatest foe yet: Thanos.

 

The imposing (and quite purple) space villain flexes his muscles in film’s new trailer, which premiered on Friday morning. The preview includes your standard Marvel comic book action mixed with comedy, but Thanos’ looming presence sets the scene what what appears to be a major battle on the horizon.
 

“The entire time I knew him he only ever had one goal: To wipe out half the universe,” Zoe Saldana’s Gamora is heard saying in the trailer. “If gets all the Infinity Stones, he can do it with the snap of his fingers. Just like that.”

 

“Tell me his name again,” Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man asks.

 

Gamora responds in a whisper, “Thanos.”

 

The two-minute trailer, which has racked up close to a million views on YouTube in less than three hours, features nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes the crew in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch.

 

A bearded Captain America is seen taking on Thanos in hand-to-hand combat, Spider-Man is swinging through debris, and Thor finds his head nearly being crushed by the villain. The glimpses of our heroes in peril led some fans online to fear that some Marvel characters may not make it out of alive.

 
Marvel Studios’ latest hero, Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, is featured prominently in the new trailer.

 
“Black Panther” has been one of Marvel’s biggest and most critically acclaimed hits since it opened last month. The film, which is the first Marvel project directed by an African-American, broke records on its opening weekend at the box office and has made more than $1.1 billion worldwide.

 

“Avengers: Infinity War” looks to be the one of the biggest films Marvel has ever produced, which is saying something since the brand has had 18 straight number one openings and has grossed more than $14.5 billion globally.

The black comedy took home the award on Saturday.

 

 

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Ingrid Goes West won the award for best first feature at the Film Independent Spirit Awards, which were handed out Saturday in Santa Monica.

 

The film beat out fellow nominees Columbus, Menashe, Oh Lucy! and Patti Cake$.

 

Director Matt Spicer accepted the award alongside the cast and crew. “All these people on stage made this movie happen. But rather than list a bunch of people, I just wanted to dedicate this award to one person in particular, and that is [star] Aubrey Plaza,” he said. “Casting Aubrey in this movie was the best decision I ever made as a director.”

 

Ingrid Goes West follows Ingrid Thorburn (Plaza), a woman who flees Pennsylvania for Los Angeles to befriend Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen), a socialite who just so happens to be Ingrid’s latest obsession. Jared Ian Goldman, Aubrey Plaza, Tim White, Trevor White, Adam Mirels and Robert Mirels produced the film.

 

The 33rd Film Independent Spirit Awards took place in a tent next to the Santa Monica Pier and aired on IFC on Saturday, March 3. Nick Kroll and John Mulraney returned as hosts for the second year in a row.

Elizabeth looks beautiful with her dark hair again. I wonder if that’s for a role. It was blonde when she finished filming Avengers but maybe she had a temporary color during filming.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Facebook has given a straight-to-series order to a female-driven dramedy starring Elizabeth Olsen.

 

The untitled series was created and written by Kit Steinkellner (Z: The Beginning of Everything).

 

Switched at Birth creator Lizzy Weiss is set to serve as showrunner. Olsen and James Ponsoldt (Master of None) will executive produce. Ponsoldt will also direct the pilot and multiple episodes of the half-hour series, the plot of which is being kept under wraps.

 

The half-hour series is part of Facebook’s push to offer more television-quality projects via its Watch video platform ,after it focused on lower budget, midform series during the platform’s first six months. The series has been given a 10-episode order.

 

Also executive producing are Robin Schwartz, Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf for Big Beach TV, which will serve as the studio, and Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala and Jon Liebman for Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Avy Kaufman (The Night Of, Damages) will cast the series.

 

“I couldn’t be prouder of the group we have brought together for this show,” said Olsen. “Kit’s story has been near and dear to me for years and I can’t wait to share our dark, funny and complicated show with the world.”

 

Facebook introduced Watch in late August with a slate of projects including scripted comedies Loosely Exactly Nicole and Strangers, as well as unscripted series Ball in the Family and Returning the Favor with Mike Rowe. Many of the projects were designed to be under 20 minutes in length.

 

Now that Watch has been live for a few months, Facebook has focused its strategy on projects that connect its community and encourage engagement and interactivity. Further, the social network will no longer partially fund shows and is said to want to spend more on a smaller number of high-profile projects. Other projects in the works include Five Points, a Chicago-set high school drama executive produced by Kerry Washington, and the English-language adaptation of Norwegian drama Skam from producer Simon Fuller.

 

Olsen, who most recently starred in Wind River and Ingrid Goes West, is repped by Gersh, Brillstein and Sloane Offer Weber and Dern. Steinkellner is a playwright whose debut graphic novel, Quince, will publish this fall. She is also working on a TV adaptation of Mad About Men for Sundial Pictures. She is repped by ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion and Felker Toczek Suddleson and Abramson. Weiss is repped by UTA.

VANITY FAIR – After a decade of unprecedented success, Marvel Studios is at a pivotal moment: the looming farewell to some of its founding superheroes, and the rise of a new generation. Kevin Feige, the creative force behind the $13 billion franchise and a slew of Marvel stars, discusses its precarious beginnings, stumbles, and ever-expanding empire.

 

On a sweltering October weekend, the largest-ever group of Marvel superheroes and friends gathered just outside of Atlanta for a top-secret assignment. Eighty-three of the famous faces who have brought Marvel’s comic-book characters to life over the past decade mixed and mingled—Mark Ruffalo, who plays the Hulk, bonded with Vin Diesel, the voice of Groot, the monosyllabic sapling from Guardians of the Galaxy. Angela Bassett, mother to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, flew through hurricane-like conditions to report for duty alongside Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Laurence Fishburne, and Stan Lee, the celebrated comic-book writer and co-creator of Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men.

 

Their mission: to strike a heroic pose to commemorate 10 years of unprecedented moviemaking success. Marvel Studios, which kicked things off with Iron Man in 2008, has released 17 films that collectively have grossed more than $13 billion at the global box office; 5 more movies are due out in the next two years. The sprawling franchise has resuscitated careers (Downey), has minted new stars (Tom Hiddleston), and increasingly attracts an impressive range of A-list talent, from art-house favorites (Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange) to Hollywood icons (Anthony Hopkins and Robert Redford) to at least three handsome guys named Chris (Hemsworth, Evans, and Pratt). The wattage at the photo shoot was so high that Ant-Man star Michael Douglas—Michael Douglas!—was collecting autographs. (Photographer Jason Bell shot Vanity Fair’s own Marvel portfolio shortly afterward.)

 

But it wasn’t Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury or even Chris Evans’s Captain America who assembled Earth’s mightiest heroes. They came for Kevin Feige, the unassuming man in a black baseball cap who took Marvel Studios from an underdog endeavor with a roster of B-list characters to a cinematic empire that is the envy of every other studio in town. Feige’s innovative, comic-book-based approach to blockbuster moviemaking—having heroes from one film bleed into the next—has changed not only the way movies are made but also pop culture at large. Fans can’t get enough of a world where space-hopping Guardians of the Galaxy might turn up alongside earthbound Avengers, or Doctor Strange and Black Panther could cross paths via a mind-bending rift in the space-time continuum. Other studios, most notably Warner Bros., with the Justice League, have tried to create their own web of interconnected characters. Why have so many failed to achieve Marvel’s heights? “Simple,” said Joe Russo, co-director of Avengers 3 and 4. “They don’t have a Kevin.”

/FILM – For years, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been calling for a solo movie centered on Black Widow, the ass-kicking super spy played by Scarlett Johansson. And while there have been a lot of vague claims of support from the people in charge at Marvel, we’ve yet to see her suit up for her own film.

 

But now there may be a film on the horizon that focuses on all of the prominent women characters in the MCU, not just Black Widow. Read Marvel Studios president and mega-producer Kevin Feige‘s comments about the possibility of an all-female Marvel movie below.

 

io9 was at a recent press conference for Thor: Ragnarok, where Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson – who plays the sword-wielding Valkyrie in that movie – told a story about how she led a charge that Valkyrie herself would have been proud of:

 

“Recently, I marched up with a couple of other women that work in Marvel and we went to Kevin, ‘What about a movie with some female super heroes? Like all of them?’”

 

Feige jumped in to reveal what happened:

 

“It was a pretty amazing moment to be somewhere and have your shoulder get tapped and turn around every female hero we have is standing there going, ‘How about it?’ And I said, ‘Yes.’”

The actress confesses and reveals her professional growth, her love status and how she sees her future.

 

GLAMOUR MEXICO – From a young age, Elizabeth Olsen has been building her career. Her effort and dedication have been well rewarded by now occupying a very high (and well deserved) place in the industry. Talking to her was as if she had been in a conversation with a childhood friend. Seriously, since she answers honestly, she is a calm, genuine person, and at first glance her intelligence and her talent are noticed.

 

She is an actress who can move from drama to comedy, transiting through terror and even landing in the area of ​​superheroes, playing Scarlet Witch in the saga of Marvel’s The Avengers (it is a relief to finally see more heroines in that gender). This year she will star in two interesting stories: Ingrid Goes West, next to Aubrey Plaza, and Windriver, a thriller where she acts with Jeremy Renner, also known as Hawkeye, who is also part of The Avengers, whose next installment will be until 2018, with Infinity War.

 

Elizabeth has been able to shape her path, and her success is envisioned increasingly strong and devastating. While we talk, she confesses that she is very excited about this edition of Glamour. “I’ve never been on a cover in Mexico, so I think it’s great to be with you,” she laughs. Very proud of her achievements and happy for all her projects, this was what the heroine of fiction told us (and in reality).

 

I try to ignore fame, but you can deal with it in a responsible way.

 

GLAMOUR: This year looks good to you; you have two movies on the way: Ingrid Goes West and Windriver, could you tell us about them?

EVENING STANDARD – With her indie flicks and blockbuster roles, Elizabeth Olsen has cultivated the kind of career most actresses dream of. She tells Tiffanie Darke about her famous sisters, her fears for America and how she plans to build her empire

 

It’s a sweltering day downtown in the Bowery, the sort of humid August heat when it feels like Manhattan is melting. Boys in artful sarongs and beards cruise the sidewalk, girls in high-waisted cut-offs and snapbacks lean against open-air bars. It’s noon, and no one dares move too fast.

 

But Elizabeth Olsen is not hot. In fact, she says she has frostbite in her fingers. Wearing black Calvin Klein jeans she picked up for $20 in a vintage store, slim black ankle boots and an oversized Altuzarra blouse, she’s been in air-conditioned TV studios doing interviews all morning and needs to defrost. She has asked that we meet in Il Buco, a rustic Italian restaurant with the sort of premium paysan menu you’d recognise from places such as the River Cafe. This, she confides, is her favourite restaurant in New York: ‘My sisters have been bringing me here for my birthday since I was 15.’

 

Ah yes — her sisters. Mary-Kate and Ashley, the button-cute Disney twins who grew up in the full glare of the public eye, then reinvented themselves as fiercely private fashion entrepreneurs (their label, The Row, is as hot as ever, and they now own high-end concept boutiques in New York and LA). Elizabeth — or Lizzie as she introduces herself — shares their delicate features: blonde locks, Bambi eyes and symmetrical porcelain face. But what’s intriguing about this sister is that she can turn those looks to power.

 

Six years after she burst on to the scene with a critically acclaimed performance in the indie flick Martha Marcy May Marlene, her carefully chosen roles have included Scarlet Witch in the unstoppable Marvel franchise, Avengers; Audrey Williams, Hank Williams’ wife and manager in the biopic I Saw the Light; and most recently, FBI agent Jane Banner in Wind River, a harrowing story of rape and murder set on a Wyoming Native American reservation, directed by Oscar-nominated Taylor Sheridan.

 

This is the kind of career about which most actors dream: balancing respected low-budget independents with blockbuster international fame. Olsen, it becomes clear, possesses an acute understanding of how to make the business work for her. Doing films like Avengers ‘allows you to sell a film to investors’, she explains, as she helps herself to black kale salad and slivers of pata negra. ‘It gives you recognition in an international market. You then have more freedom of investors for independent films.’ At 28 she has also finally launched herself on social media, having created an Instagram account last year. Under the guidance of her friend, the comedian and actress Aubrey Plaza, she is using it to simultaneously cultivate her fan base and poke fun at herself (check out Olsen’s ‘Feed me Friday’ posts featuring unflattering paparazzi shots of her eating). But she also has an eye on the prize. Any aspiring actor who wants to pick up a commercial deal needs a sizeable social media following. And those commercial deals give you exactly the sort of fame you need to get those independent film projects off the ground. ‘That’s why George Clooney does Nespresso,’ she explains. So far Olsen has cameoed for Miu Miu, but now she’s ready for something more: ‘People want to be a part of something that’s giving back to something else. I would like to be a part of that because it’s something that I would be proud of. But it’s also something that would help me as an actor trying to get films made.’

PHILADELPHIA STYLE – With her talent and film career firmly established, Elizabeth Olsen’s focus shifts to forging her path and making her own rules.

 

At the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River, Elizabeth Olsen climbs onstage inside the iconic Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes. Looking old-school glam in a plunging blush-colored Miu Miu gown, she takes in the scene, smiling as the audience delivers its enthusiastic applause and Sheridan introduces the film. It is not Olsen’s first time at Cannes, but from her perspective, it might as well be. “The first time I was here, I didn’t soak it in,” says the actress during our beachside stroll the next day. “I was overwhelmed, and I don’t have very many memories of being present.”

 

This time would be different, she determined, starting with the decision to clutch her pink heels in her hand while onstage. “During Sundance, I had a bit of a panic attack when we were onstage. You have all the lights on you, and there’s really no point of focus. I hate it. It freaks me out. So, I thought, ‘I’m going to take my shoes off.’ And I remember every moment,” she says.

 

As not even a 2am post-premiere photo call manages to rattle the actress, you get the sense Olsen knows not only how to navigate the chaos that is the world’s most renowned film festival, but is also competently steering a career that, in the past seven years, has launched her to fame far beyond what maybe even she expected. “Now that I feel a bit more solid about what I’m making and I have a very clear intention for myself, I’m a happier person,” explains the 28-year-old. “I’ve started to figure out how I want to function as a human being in the world and balance it with work.”

 

She may feel like she is only now coming into herself, but from the outside, it seems like Olsen has always had a strong sense of direction. While the actress has, in the past seven years, made an impressive 18 films—ranging from well-received indies like Martha Marcy May Marlene to major blockbusters like Godzilla and The Avengers films—her love of acting and performing was established long before her 21st birthday.

W MAGAZINE – id-way through Ingrid Goes West, the so-called “Instagram” movie that premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will finally hit theaters on Friday, Aubrey Plaza, mid-carpool karaoke—and to K-Ci & JoJo, no less—shoots a glance at Elizabeth Olsen that sticks with you long past the credits. It’s a look of equal parts envy, lust, desperation, and infatuation—in a word, it’s unhinged. And it’s what makes Ingrid Goes West one of the summer’s most captivating movies.

 

In the film, Plaza plays the titular Ingrid, a fragile and arguably deranged twenty-something who finds her calling after the death of her mother. In her copious free time she turns to Instagram to pass the hours, stumbling upon what will soon become an all-encompassing obsession: Olsen’s Taylor Sloane, a seemingly perfect, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, California-living, avocado toast-loving Instagram star. And so Ingrid goes West, to meet Taylor and get a piece of that social media bliss for herself. As you might guess, hijinks ensue—both slapstick for the Millennial set (at one point Plaza attempts to diffuse an awkward situation by screaming “I brought rosé!”, and it works) and unexpectedly dark (blackmail; attempted murder).

 

The relationship between Ingrid and Taylor is a tenuous one, powered by iPhone battery life and Valencia filters that, like Ingrid’s gaze, will leave you feeling uneasy. Plaza and Olsen IRL, however, is another story. Nine months after the film’s Sundance debut, and countless photo ops (including one particularly ingenious red carpet ‘who wore it better’ moment), late night interviews, and yes, Instagram posts, the pair has an easy rapport, fueled by a similarly quiet wit and general affection for their joint project. Sitting together on a secluded bench just outside a bustling photo studio, the pair frequently broke off a conversation about the film for quick asides and playful bickering among themselves (and, no, Plaza does not hate Girls Trip). It was all-too-easy to just sit back and passively observe, à la Ingrid scrolling through Taylor’s feed—albeit, hopefully in a much less creepy fashion. Here, the pair talks about their new film, embracing social media, and the specificity of Los Angeles vocal fry.

 

How did you first find this project?

USA TODAY — If you need an Instagram-worthy brunch snap, probably don’t pass your smartphone to Martha Stewart.

 

“She’s the worst food photographer in the whole world — she makes Jean-Georges food look like dog food,” jokes Elizabeth Olsen, who admits her own nosh photos are similarly unappetizing. “My life revolves around prepping dinner for my family or friends, and making my breakfast look nice, but (my pictures) always look bad. It’s like Martha.”

 

Fortunately, Olsen’s foray into food photography was only to research her role as an enviable Instagram “influencer” in dark comedy Ingrid Goes West (in theaters Friday in New York and Los Angeles, expands nationwide Aug. 25), one of two films she stars in this month, the other being Taylor Sheridan’s chilly murder mystery Wind River (now showing in New York and Los Angeles; expands to 17 cities Friday, including San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia).

 

In the latter, Olsen, 28, co-stars with her Avengers castmate Jeremy Renner as Jane Banner, a rookie FBI agent assigned to investigate the rape and death of a young Native American woman on Wyoming’s Wind River Indian Reservation.

 

Signing on,she hoped to shed light on female sexual assault, particularly in the Native American community, where missing women often go unreported. The actress also wanted “to play someone with the confidence and fortitude of Jane,” Olsen says. “She’s not jaded yet and emotionally invests in trying to find out what happened.”

 

The Olsen twins’ younger sister was timorous about a winter shoot in the Utah wilderness, but wound up having “the best time,” she says, learning to snowmobile and training in both martial arts and gun work.

 

The frosty conditions only sweetened her return to Los Angeles a few months later, when she slipped into the boho-chic garb of Ingrid’s Taylor Sloane, who becomes the social-media obsession and narcissistic BFF of Aubrey Plaza’s stalkerish title character.

VANITY FAIR – She’s an Avengers regular and grew up with some very famous siblings, but Olsen has managed to carve out a steady, laid-back niche for herself in Hollywood. After some career choices she now wishes she maybe had played slightly differently, Olsen is back with two very different films and enjoying “nothing being too precious.”

 

 

Every time I wear these jeans I forget to ask for a black napkin,” Elizabeth Olsen laments, realizing white fuzz remnants have attached themselves to her black jeans. The actress drove herself to our lunch at a trendy Los Angeles eatery. She’s wearing a very low-key black long-sleeved shirt with the very low-key black pants, and she isn’t wearing any makeup. No one in the crowded patio area, a few days before the Fourth of July, seems to notice her, even though we are seated facing inward, our faces on full display for fellow lunch diners.

 

Olsen is an actress in one of the most successful film franchises of the decade and she bears a noticeable resemblance to her very high-profile, extremely successful fashion-designer older sisters: so it’s perhaps a bit surprising just how much she flies under the radar.

 

“[Sometimes] people are like, ‘Have we met before? You look familiar. You’re an actress? What have you been in?’” Olsen explains. “And then you have to start listing your credits, and you’re like, ‘Maybe the Avenger movies?’ ‘No, I’ve never seen a superhero movie.’ [Avengers] is what I always go to . . . I don’t look really like that person in the movie.”

 

She is inquisitive in a way that actors are not always. She looks up at me after digging in to our burratta appetizer, which I haven’t touched: “This is so good! Are you lactose intolerant?!” When I explain during a digression about live music that I’m always worried I’m blocking people’s views at concerts, she interjects, “By the way, I bet you are!”

The star of Wind River and Ingrid Goes West chats with VIOLET GREY about snowmobiles, gun ranges, backseat driving and quote-unquote “sexy makeup”.

 

 

VIOLET GREY – Two back-to-back movies premieres. For most actors, this would be a chore. But the atmosphere in Elizabeth Olsen’s suite at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills is decidedly unserious and buoyant. The focal point of the good energy (and the gales of laughter) is Olsen herself, who seems supernaturally good-humored. When pressed—doesn’t this just feel like work?—she protests vigorously. “I actually really love doing my hair and makeup,” she says, “I think it’s really fun.”

 

It helps that the young actress has a beauty team—makeup artist Gita Bass, hairstylist Mark Townsend, nail artist Michelle Saunders and stylist Sara Slutzsky—that functions more like a group of close-knit friends than professional acquaintances. “I’ll ask them about everything they’re using,” says Olsen of her team, “They usually have multiples of things and give them to me—which is really generous.” She lets out a knowing laugh and jokes, “I just steal from them!”

 

Another reason for the celebratory vibes: this is inarguably a big moment for Olsen. Her performances in two upcoming films—Ingrid Goes West, a tart commentary on contemporary social media mores, and Wind River, a tense thriller set on an Indian reservation—have garnered the type of critical buzz that typically presages award season recognition. It’s not hyperbolic to expect that, within the next few months, Olsen will be vaulted into another league of stardom.

 

VIOLET GREY joined Olsen and her team before the Los Angeles premiere of Wind River to get her take on snowmobiles, Uber, mixed drinks and quote-unquote “sexy makeup”.

WWD – The actresses, who star as a loner and a fashion blogger in the dark comedy, discuss their relationship with social media and each other.

 

 

As the stars of the dark and quirky Sundance hit “Ingrid Goes West,” Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen — who frequently inhabit opposite ends of the character spectrum — play out a comedic, cutting-edge take on the modern social phenomenon of Insta-envy and Insta-aspiration. Adrift in her life, loner Ingrid (Plaza) takes her obsession with the picture-perfect images from the feed of social media-savvy Taylor (Olsen) to a disturbing, sometimes funny, extreme.

 

Indeed, the pair may inspire career-coveting among their peers: along with appearing together in the critically praised indie comedy, each has an equally lauded film hitting theaters — Olsen as an out-of-her-depth FBI investigator in the bleak drama “Wind River,” and Plaza as a foul-mouthed 14th-century nun in the farce “The Little Hours.” And of course, they both have superhero blockbusters on their résumés: Olsen plays “The Avengers’” Scarlet Witch and Plaza is one face of the malevolent Shadow King on the X-Men spin-off “Legion.”

 

During their chat with WWD, the pair were thick as thieves while musing about their friendship, their mutual envies and the women they admire.

 

WWD: How soon after signing on to this did you guys start following each other on Instagram?

 

Elizabeth Olsen: I didn’t have an Instagram, and you didn’t either. Well, apparently, you did.

 

Aubrey Plaza: I did. I had a private one. No, I didn’t have a public one.

 

E.O.: She never invited me or told me about it!

 

A.P.: Come on. Don’t do this. I never post on it.

 

E.O.: You post a lot of stories on it.

LA TIMES – Room 64 at the Chateau Marmont is possibly the most Instagrammable spot in L.A. Its wrap-around terrace is suspended just below the homes built into the Hollywood Hills, tiny glass boxes that form their own constellation when night falls. Rumor has it Howard Hughes once lived in this two-bedroom penthouse, spying on girls at the pool below, decades before Lindsay Lohan and Lady Gaga crashed here for a slumber party.

 

Today, however, it is home to the actress Elizabeth Olsen, who has arrived at the hotel with a team of people to help beautify her. High-heeled sandals are lined up on a desk. There are multiple pieces of luggage containing makeup kits. She is wearing borrowed diamonds on her fingers, paging through the room service menu, from which she can order whatever she would like.

 

It’s a scene, no doubt, that would incite lust among her half-a-million Instagram followers. But she doesn’t feel like she knows how to do the setting justice. Just this morning, she attempted to photograph her breakfast, but then ended up deleting the image in haste.

 

“I’m bad at it,” she says. “I’m bad at the lighting. I’m bad at the framing. I’m bad at the editing. When I look at my food, it looks pretty. When I look at it on a phone, it looks not pretty.”

ROLLING STONE – Social media stalking turns into full-blown stalking in the comedy Ingrid Goes West. The film stars Aubrey Plaza as Ingrid Thorburn, an oddball who becomes obsessed with Elizabeth Olsen’s character Taylor Sloane.

 

Horror flicks, hot docs and a long-awaited hip-hop biopic – your alternative guide to what to see at a theater near you this summer

 

In the new trailer, Thorburn closely follows Instagram influencer Sloane’s Instagram posts. Thorburn soon begins to shape her own life around the hashtag-slinging, selfie-loving Sloane, to the point that Thorburn moves to California to be closer to Sloane.

 

Thorburn goes so far as to kidnap Sloane’s dog as a means to befriend her (it works), dyes her hair blonde like Sloane’s and even adopts her laugh. Her wacky ploy seems to be working as the two become friends, until Sloane’s brother (portrayed by Billy Magnussen) catches on to Thorburn’s ruse.

 

While the plot seems pretty creepy on paper, in the clip Plaza and Olsen’s hilarious and punchy deliveries keep things primarily light and even strangely endearing. “I’m not a psychopath,” Thorburn insists. “I just want to be her friend.”

 

Directed by Matt Spicer, who co-wrote Ingrid Goes West with David Branson Smith, the film won the 2017 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at Sundance Film Festival. Ingrid Goes West opens in theaters on August 11th.

DEADLINE – This is the third year in a row that Taylor Sheridan has a film in Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival. But the Sicario and Hell Or High Water writer is making his Croisette debut as director with Wind River. An unfinished version of the timely thriller centered around the continued injustice toward Native Americans premiered at Sundance in January. Its final cut premiered in Un Certain Regard here to a lengthy standing ovation.

 

The story follows a game tracker (Jeremy Renner) and an FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) who go on a manhunt for the murderer of a Native American teenage girl on Wyoming’s Wind River Indian Reservation.

 

Deadline’s Pete Hammond has said the movie “features the best Jeremy Renner performance in years.” And, in the video above, Renner says this is a meaningful film for him. “I’m deeply connected to it… and you know, I don’t have to talk about just a bow and arrow,” he laughs, referencing his Hawkeye role in the Avengers movies. He adds, seriously, “I can talk about something that does mean something to me as a man, as a father, as an actor, a lot of things.”

ELLE – “They can make me have a little vertigo when I have to go on stage, so I just finally decided to take them off instead of trying.”

 

Elizabeth Olsen is explaining why she kicked off her heels at the Cannes premiere of her latest movie Wind River. Sitting with her on a secluded patio tucked away behind La Croisette–the main oceanfront drag of Cannes–Olsen looks as fresh as a daisy in an elegant printed pantsuit, although she must be exhausted. The movie premiere the night before didn’t even start until 11pm, which is when we saw Olsen take the stage clutching those heels in her hand. By 2am she was still working–meeting and greeting at the movie after-party, even though another super-early start beckoned, followed by another full day of non-stop interviews and events. (She took her shoes off eventually after that appearance, too.)

DEADLINE NEWS – A HILARIOUS video has captured Avengers actress Elizabeth Olsen struggling to pronounce very rude Scottish slang.

 

In the side-splitting clip, uploaded by fellow actress Jade Olivia Gordon, Olsen can be seen reading the list of phrases – including “baws” – from a screen and cracking up laughing.

 

Olsen is in Scotland filming the latest Avengers film, and has clearly taken the opportunity to get familiar with the local dialect.

 

At the start of the minute-long video, the actress can be seen saying: “She gobbled that jibby-jabber” before laughing uncontrollably.

 

After a few seconds, she looks down at her phone and says “baws – that’s testicles.” She then repeats “baws” again before sniggering at the sound of the word.

 

Olsen’s pronunciation of the words comes out more like “bozz”.

E! ONLINE – This was bound to happen eventually.

 

Avengers: Infinity War doesn’t hit theaters until May 4, 2018, but E! News has fans’ first look at Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) sharing a tender moment in the adventure movie. The two actors were snapped filming on set in Edinburgh, Scotland, Tuesday.

 

Bettany, 45, and Olsen, 28, filmed the same scene “eight or nine times,” according to an eyewitness. It began with Vision opening the window curtains using his special abilities. Moments later, Scarlet Witch appeared by his side “and they get very close and finally kissed.”

COMICBOOKMOVIEAs filming continues on Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, we have a much better look at The Scarlet Witch (Liz Olsen) doing battle with what is rumored to be a member of Thanos’ Black Order…

 

We’ve already had blurry glimpses of Elizabeth Olsen and her stunt double shooting an explosive action scene on the set of Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, but this latest video provides a much better look at what’s going on.

 

In it, we see Olsen’s Scarlet Witch fighting for her life against an actor in a motion-capture suit, who could well turn out to be a member of The Cull Obsidian – and, there’s been speculation that it might even be Thanos’ most fearsome general, Corvus Glaive, because of the pike-like weapon he’s wielding.

 

Previous set pics confirmed that The Vision (Paul Bettany) will also be involved in this scene, but there’s no sign of him here. Is there a chance he’s already been taken out of action, perhaps?

 

Check out the footage below and let us know what you make of it.

VARIETY – Aubrey Plaza goes insane in a raucous red-band trailer for the dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West,” which shows her crashing a wedding and pepper-spraying the bride, played by Elizabeth Olsen, for not inviting her.

 

The trailer depicts Plaza’s character Ingrid Thornberg reacting to her mother’s death and a series of self-inflicted setbacks by moving out West to befriend her Instagram obsession Taylor Sloane (played by Olsen). After a quick bond is forged between these unlikeliest of friends, the facade begins to crack in both women’s lives.

 

“Ingrid Goes West” is directed by Matt Spicer and written by Spicer and David Branson Smith. The film, which also stars O’Shea Jackson Jr., Wyatt Russell, and Billy Magnussen, premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.

 

Variety‘s Peter Debruge praised Plaza’s performance in his Sundance review: “A semi-ironic, yet still-empathetic ‘Single White Female’ for the Facebook generation, Spicer’s squirm-inducing directorial debut understands both the pleasures and frustrations of judging one’s worth via virtual connections. If positioned correctly, it’s the sort of timely satire that could click with younger audiences — and further bolster Aubrey Plaza’s value in the title role.”

 

Producers are Jared Ian Goldman, Tim White, Trevor White, Adam Mirels, Robert Mirels, and Plaza. Neon picked up the rights at Sundance and has set an Aug. 4 release.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ star joins Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming road trip drama set around the last shop in the U.S. to develop Kodachrome film.

 

Elizabeth Olsen is set to star in Kodachrome, appearing alongside Ed Harris and Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming drama.

 

The actress had been previously linked to the project before Cannes, where The Solution Entertainment Group launched it in the market (CAA are repping North America), but her name was subsequently removed.

 

Set to start shooting in Toronto on Aug. 28, Kodachrome tells the story of a record label boss who embarks on a road trip across the U.S. in order to fulfill his father’s dying wish and have a roll of Kodachrome film developed, only to find there’s just one remaining shop accepting them. Bruce Greenwood, Dennis Haysbert and Wendy Crewson will also star in the film, to be directed by Mark Raso (Copenhagen) from a script by Jonathan Tropper. Tropper previously adapted his novel This is Where I Leave You with Warner Brothers, which starred Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll and Rose Byrne.

 

Kodachrome is being produced by Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson and 21 Laps Entertainment’s Dan Levine and Shawn Levy, alongside Topper and Leon Clarance of Motion Picture Capital, which is fully financing the film. Jo Monk, Laure Vaysse and Dan Cohen are exec producing.

 

The film joins a growing list of films on the slate of Motion Picture Capital, which only this week announced Steel Country, a U.S.-set thriller to star Andrew Scott (Spectre, Pride) and recent Olivier best actress winner Denise Gough (’71, Jimmy’s Hall), which went into production Friday. Simon Fellows (Malice in Wonderland) directs, while Gareth Ellis-Unwin (The King’s Speech) produces alongside Clarance.

 

Other films on MPC’s upcoming slate include U.K. drama Hampstead, starring Diane Keaton and Brendon Gleeson, currently in post-production, and sci-fi film The Titan, starring Sam Worthington, Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson, also in post.

 

Meanwhile, MPC’s completed projects include horror film The Crucifixion, written by The Conjuring’s Chad and Cary Hayes and starring Sophie Cookson (Kingsman: The Secret Service); thriller Come and Find Me, starring Aaron Paul and Annabelle Wallis; and comedy The Boy Downstairs, starring Girls’ Zosia Mamet.

 

MPC, which was also behind Netflix series Sense8, was set up by Clarance in 2011 with the backing of Indian giant Reliance Big Entertainment, and claims to have arranged financing for productions totaling $200 million to date.

E! ONLINE – Black Widow and The Hulk aren’t the only heroes who found love in a hopeless place.

 

Although many of the Avengers grow apart in Captain America: Civil War, two of them manage to grow closer: Vision (Paul Bettany) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). E! News has an exclusive first look at a bonus feature from the Marvel movie (available on Digital HD Sept. 2 and Blu-ray Sept. 13), in which the stars explain how their characters’ relationship was almost predestined.

 

“What I love about Vision, he’s sort of on his own quest, which is to understand human beings,” Bettany says of his character, who was accidentally brought to life via an Infinity Stone in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. “He realizes that loyalty has got to come through love—real loyalty—so I think that he’s very intrigued by what love is.”

COLLIDER – With the home entertainment release of Captain America: Civil War on the horizon, the special features are steadily finding their way online. We’ve seen some deleted scenes, and today we have a glimpse at the gag reel for the film.

 

While there’s nothing major in this minute of bloopers, it still shows the cast having a good time as they flub their lines or mug for the camera between takes. We also see the difficulties in Falcon making a landing and Robert Downey Jr. pretending to get upset with Tom Holland. These are the light moments that gag reels promise, and it looks like the one for Civil War will deliver.

 

Check out the Captain America: Civil War gag reel below. Captain America: Civil War hits Digital HD, Digital 3D and Disney Movies Anywhere on September 2nd and Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on September 13th.

NERDIST – Fans of social media and dark comedies can rejoice. The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Parks and Recreation alum Aubrey Plaza and the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s own Elizabeth Olsen will play opposite each other in Ingrid Goes West, a new ‘net-themed dark comedy shooting in Los Angeles.

 

Details on the production are still pretty light, but we do know a basic storyline. Plaza will play Ingrid, a young woman on the verge of obsession with a social media starlet played by Olsen. Ingrid’s obsession reaches a whole new level when she packs up her life and moves to Los Angeles to befriend Olsen’s Taylor Sloane, the young woman with a seemingly perfect life. As with all dark comedies, Ingrid’s arrival on the West Coast sparks a series of events that lead the young women down increasingly disturbing and dangerous paths.

 

Plaza will produce the film, which was written by Matt Spicer and David Branson Smith. Spicer will make the project his feature film directorial debut.

 

The movie does not yet have a release date, but the timing of a story steeped in social media stardom could not come at a more opportune moment, as stars of YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and more occupy an increasingly high profile in the public eye. They influence national and international conversations, and drive millions of eyes towards the products and events they love. Could any moment be more primed for a stark and comedic look at what happens when fan obsession goes too far?

 

Olsen and Plaza have proven track records of excellent comedic timing and solid acting chops so this movie-goer eagerly awaits more details and a release date to look forward to in the coming months.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERMatt Spicer is directing the dark comedy about a young woman who becomes obsessed with a social media star.

 

Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen will star in dark comedy Ingrid Goes West.

 

Directed by Matt Spicer from a script by Spicer and David Branson Smith, the film follows a young woman named Ingrid (Plaza) who becomes obsessed with a social media star named Taylor Sloane (Olsen) with a seemingly perfect life. When Ingrid decides to drop everything and move west to befriend Taylor, her behavior turns unsettling and increasingly dangerous.

 

Plaza will produce the pic along with Jared Ian Goldman, Star Thrower Entertainment’s Tim and Trevor White and Adam and Robert Mirels through their newly formed 141 Entertainment banner. Mary Solomon, Rick Rickertsen and Allan Mandelbaum will executive produce.

 

The film, which is Spicer’s feature directorial debut, is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

 

Plaza, known for playing April Ludgate on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, was most recently seen in Fox’s comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. She next will star in Noah Hawley’s FX series Legion, and she recently wrapped production on The Little Hours in which she stars alongside Alison Brie and Dave Franco. Plaza is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Schreck Rose.

 

Olsen was most recently seen in Disney and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War and starred opposite Tom Hiddleston in I Saw the Light. Ingrid Goes West is her second collaboration with Star Thrower Entertainment following Taylor Sheridan’s Wind River, which The Weinstein Company will release. She is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

 

Spicer recently co-wrote the coming-of-age comedy Flower along with Max Winkler, who will also direct. Also along with Winkler, Spicer will write the recently announced Rocketeer sequel for Disney. He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and Karl Austen.

HUFFINGTON POST – Scarlet Witch has so much power, it’d make Voldemort pee his pants. But with great power comes great responsibility, and actress Elizabeth Olsen takes that responsibility very seriously.

 

When The Huffington Post asked the “Captain America: Civil War“ star if she’d be into doing a Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff solo movie, the actress said she’d entertain the idea on one condition.

 

“It’s not something I’m opposed to, but it’s also something that has to make a lot of sense. I wouldn’t just do it just to do it. It’d have to make sense for how it advances in the world. But I’d be open to talking about it. I’d never say no to just an idea,” said Olsen.

 

A Scarlet Witch movie would be a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has been almost completely male-driven up to this point (even down to the toys). Perhaps giving hope to a solo movie, at the end of “Civil War,” Scarlet Witch’s future is fairly up in the air. Olsen said, “The options for Wanda afterward are pretty limitless,” but we may have a slight hint about what’s ahead.

 

In “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Tony Stark has a vision showing his fellow Avengers dead. This vision is given to him while Scarlet Witch is messing with his head. We asked “Avengers: Infinity War“ directors the Russo brothers if the vision could still come into play again, and they confirmed that everything was still on the table.

 

Is Stark’s vision a glimpse at the future? Will Scarlet Witch possibly be asked to recreate it?

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Isabel Coixet (‘Learning to Drive’) is directing the Broadway-set drama from a screenplay by Sam Kressner.

 

Patricia Clarkson is ready to take the stage for Isabel Coixet’s Broadway-set drama Light on Broken Glass.

 

The Maze Runner and Pieces of April star has signed on to play an acclaimed Broadway actress in the drama that will also star Chris Cooper and Elizabeth Olsen.

 

Clarkson will play Melody Harper, who is preparing for the revival of her hit Broadway show toward the end of her celebrated career and, for the first time in her life, she is uncertain and afraid. Struggling with the crushing possibility that her best years may be behind her, she quickly starts losing her grasp on reality as she experiences vivid memories of her younger self (played by Olsen). The budding romance with recent widower Jay (Cooper) is brought to a halt when an ex re-enters her life.

 

Sam Kressner wrote the screenplay.

Of course you recognize the last name, but if you think you know (the candid, funny, occasionally foulmouthed) Elizabeth Olsen, you have another thing coming.

 

ALLURE – We’re at the worst table in Brooklyn—or at least, the worst table at a small Moroccan restaurant in Williamsburg. A few feet over and we’d be in the kitchen. We’re breaking the ice by debating whether scotch has to actually come from Scotland. And if my dinner date notices our proximity to the fluorescent lighting of the prep stations (or if she cares), she’s not letting on. It’s my first indication that Elizabeth Olsen is chill—or to use one of her favorite words, fucking chill. (More on that in a minute.)

 

Olsen isn’t exactly new to fame. The 27-year-old has starred in big-budget productions, like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Godzilla. And now she’s reprising her Avengers role as the mind- reading superhero Scarlet Witch in Captain America: Civil War. But for the moment, Olsen has managed to hold on to an impressive amount of privacy and relative anonymity.

 

When you think of Elizabeth Olsen, you think…she’s got the best loose waves in Hollywood? She was awesome in Martha Marcy May Marlene? She’s the Olsen who’s not a twin? Don’t worry, she’s hardly offended. “You know you’re going to be compared [with them] for the rest of your life,” she says. “You grow up and get over it, and you love your family regardless.”

 

Perhaps as a counterweight to all the blockbusters, this spring Olsen also starred in I Saw the Light, a smaller film in which she plays the wife of country-music star Hank Williams (“It’s a fucked-up story—she had a really shitty, difficult experience with her husband,” says Olsen).

 

On a balmy Thursday night, either our fellow restaurant-goers are playing it supercool or Olsen has successfully shrugged off her celebrity for the evening. Sure, her siblings may be famous (OK, really famous) and rich (a few more reallys), but Olsen is not to the manner born. She swears frequently and casually, like the world’s cutest sailor, lip-synchs to Blues Traveler in the car, fiddles with the sleeves of her sweater (a gray scoop neck from The Row), and piles her hair on top of her head “like a fucking shih tzu.” And while our waitress regards Olsen with more interest than she does me, I can’t tell if she’s registering her as a Hollywood player or just as a really pretty woman.

MELTY – We got to chat with Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) about Captain America: Civil War. We spoke about their characters’ relationship, what a jerk Tony Stark is, and they even let slip that they haven’t seen the film yet!

 

The lovely Elizabeth Olsen and the charming Jeremy Renner started off our chat by playing a little joke on the cameramen. According to Jeremy: “They get bored back there. I crack jokes only for them.” The conversation then moved onto the film, Captain America: Civil War, more specifically how the relationship between their Marvel heroes has grown over the course of these movies. “I think it’s getting wonderfully complex and deeper with each passing moment,” said Olsen. “I mean he’s kind of a surrogate brother after Quicksilver passed away. It’s how I think we discussed it and thought about it.” Renner then admitted that his character, Hawkeye, “owed a debt because her brother sacrificed, who I hated, sacrificed his life for me.” Check out the interview in the video below.

 

 

Throughout the film, and the promotional campaign, including these press junkets, the Avengers have been split into two groups: Team Cap and Team Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. went to Paris and turned the Eiffel Tower into a Team Iron Man fan for instance. This is a serious battle! When we asked Renner about whether Tony and Hawkeye could ever work it out, the American actor explained how there was no “hatred or ill will” between the two of them. However, he did admit that the Tony and Cap’s argument developed into a pretty good film. “It’s probably made for a really great piece of cinema. So thanks Tony Stark, for being such a jerk!”

 

Olsen also spoke about her character Scarlet Witch, who’s easily one of the most powerful Avengers. “I don’t think she’s going to continue to have a struggle of like: should I, shouldn’t I, maybe. I think she now has a lot of new incentive. There are lots of ways you can take her.” Renner then made an interesting analogy about Wanda. “It’s like bringing a tank to a gunfight, or a knife fight. There’s got to be a real reason for you to use you power.” Finally, when we asked what their favorite scene in the movie was, the pair answered in unison: “HAVEN’T SEEN THE MOVIE!” Incredible! However, Renner did end up choosing the airport scene, which we think ranks in the top five best superhero fight sequences, it’s maybe in the top spot.

Elizabeth-Olsen-Captain-America-European-Premiere-Vogue-27April16-Getty_b_426x639_1VOGUE – Many might think that Elizabeth Olsen’s stunning turn on the red carpet in London earlier this week was the work of someone who is used to securing the next-day’s headlines, but for the star herself, the whole “dressing sexy” experience is a relatively new one.

 

“I’m on this trajectory right now where I’m thinking, ‘Lizzie you can be sexier!’ I have always wanted to be conservative,” Olsen told us on the morning of said red-carpet outing for the premiere of the new Avengers film, Captain America: Civil War. Olsen reprises her role as Wanda Maximoff (or Scarlet Witch) for the third time. Pointing out that she was wearing a mini skirt for our meeting, she assured us that it was a first. “I don’t think I’ve ever worn a mini skirt before!” she laughed. “I would normally wear pants and blouse, but it’s not like it’s offensive – and my version of what I think dressing sexy is like is definitely not offensive!”

 

Sexy aside, the actress is worth more to her movie producers than the inadvertent promotion she gives them. Sweet, articulate and instantly likeable, Olsen has that rare quality that makes her endearing to indie-film audiences but accessible enough to take on massive franchises like Marvel. She does, however, give the post-shoot side of things more thought than many would think a young actress might.

 

“The weirdest thing as an actor to me is that when you’re on set, there are so many crucial people that work there,” she said earnestly. “Like, if your focus puller had something out of focus, that’s incredible important! You really need all these people, yet as an actor you’re there representing hundreds on the crew, a huge cast, all the people that deal with post production and that handle all the special effects being the face of it all – that’s weird! There are so many people that need credit.”

 

Olsen isn’t someone who talks about herself in grandiose terms and self-promoting clichés – on the contrary. She laughs and blushes when told she is one of the most famous actresses of her generation (“I don’t feel that way, that’s funny to say,” she smiles) and doesn’t think of herself as one of the most attractive either.

Plus: Why she’s still not joining social media

elle-canada-elizabeth-olsen

ELLE CANADA – Elizabeth Olsen doesn’t like speed. Likewise “adrenalin or kicks.” In fact, she’s a self-described “very safe person” whose definition of dangerous driving involves lip-synching to Pretenders songs in the car and filming it on her iPhone for her friends.

 

Which is why she is more surprised than anyone by how much she loved learning how to snowmobile for her new film, Wind River. “Going 60 miles an hour sliding on ice isn’t my idea of fun,” says Olsen over the phone from Park City, Utah, where production on the indie thriller is set to begin in a few days. “But I got used to it and loved it. It’s absolutely breathtaking 10,000 feet up here in the mountains.” Olsen—just back from a three-hour excursion with her co-star Jeremy Renner and the film’s stunt coordinator—says that it was one of those days that remind her why she does what she does: “It’s pretty fucking awesome.”

 

That’s another thing: Olsen peppers her conversation liberally with the f-bomb, but she does it in such a matter-of-fact, low-key way that you stop noticing it until you, say, transcribe a conversation and see how often it comes up.

 

“Low-key” also describes ELLE Canada’s day shooting the actress in New York: In fact, one staffer, on her way into the studio, passed a young woman in a trench coat waiting in the lobby and it only hit her about five minutes later that that was our cover star. And that may be exactly how Olsen wanted it.

 

“A lot of the time in my life, I try not to take up space—I just want to disappear into a wall,” says the 27-year-old. “And then eventually, when I’m around people I feel confident with, I’ll take up more space.”

139775COMIC BOOK MOVIE – While confirming Elizabeth Olsen’s return as Wanda Maximoff for Avengers: Infinity War, the co-director of Civil War has also hinted that the character will have reached her full potential by then.

 

Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is one of the many Avengers that’s set to return for Captain America: Civil War, though she seems to have been given a slight power-downgrade since we last saw her in Age Of Ultron. While the origins of her mysterious abilities are mentioned, we still don’t learn exactly how powerful she’s capable of becoming – but it seems we might find out in Avengers: Infinity War.

 

During a press conference with Clevver Movies, Civil War co-director Joe Russo addressed Wanda’s power set, and explains how an early “mistake” causes her to hold back a bit over the course of the film. But, come Infinity War it sounds like we may get that all-powerful Scarlet Witch fans have been waiting to see.

 

“She is on a growth arc, and it is part of her development. It is very tricky with powerful characters, because unless they have an internal struggle or a flaw that limits them then they do become limitless, and the storytelling becomes muddled and not very interesting.

 

You know she could’ve stopped that fight at the airport in 5 seconds if she were at the peak of her powers, so it really has to do her character specifically going on a journey to understand what the limits of her powers are. She makes a mistake very early in the movie that sets her back, and we’ll get to see where she goes in Infinity War.”

 

If Wanda becomes even half as powerful as she’s been depicted in the comics at times, Thanos had better watch out! Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 will hit theaters on May 4th, 2018.

Posted on March 19, 2016 / by AliKat in I Saw The Light, Interviews, Press

THE BOOT – Playing Audrey Williams in the upcoming Hank Williams‘ biopic, I Saw the Light, proved challenging for Elizabeth Olsen. The actress admits that it was tough to know how to best portray the complexity of the country icon’s first wife, to whom he was married for seven years.

 

“I didn’t know much about Hank and Audrey. I knew who Hank Williams was, [but] I didn’t know who Audrey was until I read the script,” Olsen tells The Boot. “So before doing any research, you just see the relationship on the page, which was a woman who, on the surface, it seems like she’s difficult. She’s demanding, and she has an ego, and it blows up his ego, and she’s stubborn and manipulative.”

 

However, it only took one read through the script, written by director Marc Abraham, to convince Olsen to take on the role. And when she signed on, Olsen explains, her goal became to “defend” Audrey Williams.

 

“I read it and felt really sorry for her, and I felt like she had a very difficult situation …,” Olsen says. “Even though there aren’t certain things that I agree with that she fought for, that she fought about, I at least tried to find out why, or what that motivation is.

 

“I think if you can see two sides of the equation, it makes for a much more interesting dynamic between relationships, or in a film or in drama,” Olsen continues. “I just tried to defend her as much as possible so people could care for her, because in history, people kind of give her a hard time.”

 

Olsen spent months before filming began doing research, looking wherever she could to find as much information as possible about Audrey Williams.

 

“The internet has kind of an okay amount of things about Audrey. The documentary that the BBC did about Hank was very helpful, because they do a lot of interviews with people who knew her. So you get to hear how people hear stories about her, which they laugh about how difficult she was, and there are also reportings of interviews she’s done about Hank, in her older age after he passed. And then I also got a good bit from the Country Music Hall of Fame, where they just finished doing a Hank Williams exhibit last year when we were here,” Olsen notes. “… I got to see a lot of personal journals and writing and her business work.

 

“She was a business woman. She was circling all the top charts: ‘… and here’s Hank, and here’s someone singing one of Hank’s songs,’” Olsen adds. “They’re divorced, and she’s still circling, and it’s all in a big scrapbook.”

 

Audrey Williams aspired to be a singer as well. Although she lacked her husband’s talent and charisma, in I Saw the Light, Williams spends time alternating between trying to make herself be heard and being angry that Hank Williams’ career is taking off while hers is stagnant. For Olsen, the mediocre singing was perhaps the most arduous part of the role.

 

“I’m not saying I sing great. I do have vocal control. I know what flat is, I know what sharp is, and I do know how to crack my voice. Those techniques, you learn,” Olsen admits. “So it was a really fun play with Rodney [Crowell], and to try to figure out to the astute musical ear what sounds bad enough, but maybe to the everyday man, it’s not that bad. Because you can’t make her look like an insane person for thinking that she can [sing], and you don’t want to make him look like an insane person [for thinking she can’t], so you try to strike a balance there.

 

“… Anytime I got Rodney Crowell to laugh, I was like, ‘Great! Let’s stick with that one,’” she says.

 

I Saw the Light, which also stars Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams, is set for release on March 25 in New York City, Los Angeles and Nashville, and on April 1 nationwide.

 

 

Posted on March 16, 2016 / by AliKat in I Saw The Light, Interviews

NYLON – After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival late last year, Marc Abraham’s Hank Williams biopic, I Saw the Light—a film that had all the makings of a major Oscar contender at the time—was met with lukewarm reviews, forcing the studio to push its release out of awards season and into the early start of a crowded summer movie season. Now, it will be Batman vs. Superman vs. Hank Williams, in a box office showdown that should render the country legend’s tragic tale an afterthought among moviegoers, when I Saw the Light is released on March 25, opposite DC’s superhero juggernaut. It’s a shame too, since Tom Hiddleston as Williams, and Elizabeth Olsen as his first wife Audrey, deliver two of the best performances of their careers.

 

We sat down with Olsen after the film’s premiere, to discuss what it was like watching her rumored beau transform into one of the most iconic singers in American history, how she reconciled her own trepidations of playing a historical figure, and just what to expect when a little movie called Captain America: Civil War drops this May.

 

How much did you know about Hank Williams before you signed on for the project?

I knew the songs that were the most famous, so I’ve heard Hank’s name a lot. But I didn’t really know much about him.

 

Strange, since he’s considered one of the most influential songwriters ever, yet our generation just isn’t that familiar with his work.

No, but my friends who are musicians were. One of my best friend’s mothers, when I told her I was going to work on a Hank Williams film, she was like ‘Are you joking?’ It turns out her youngest daughter was named Audrey after my character. She told me that all of Audrey’s boots were engraved with her name, so I asked our costume designer to make me a pair of Audrey boots, and now I have my own pair of Audrey boots.

 

Was Audrey an egomaniac?

When I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame [in Nashville], they had a vault of all of the Williams family’s things that they were preserving, things like family photos, newspapers, collages, and in almost every photo, Audrey’s dresses were embroidered with a big “A” and all of her boots did, in fact, say “Audrey.”

 

What do you think that means?

Well, she always had a genuine expression on her face. She never seemed false. She was either truly having a joyful time, or she was just not having it. I think she’s a business woman, and I’m sure she saw certain things as branding opportunities. So she took on the whole business, and Hank had none of that, so in a way she’s very responsible for him having a career. They needed each other.

 

Talk to me about Tom’s performance. What was it like watching him transform from an outsider’s perspective?

I saw him singing first in the studio in Nashville. I was nervous at first because it was so intimidating. You’re trying to figure out being the actor singing for the part, without having played the part, which is a very strange place to be. It felt a little crunchy for both of us. But once we got on set and into character, everything just seeped in. When we were doing our camera test, Tom was taking on the facial expressions, had the outfit on, and I just thought ‘That is so gnarly.’
