Like many actors in the pay of Marvel, Elizabeth Olsen is a serious actress. When they picked her up to play Scarlet Witch, she was an independent darling best known for her brilliant work in the drama. Martha Marcy May Marlene. Over the past year, she’s been open about how comic book movies cost her tough roles, which she’s starting to do more of now. (See: Max’s love and death.) By the way, if she never plays Wanda Maximoff again? Well, she’s okay with that.
Olsen sat down with white lotus Meghann Fahy season 2 breakout for one of the VarietyThe “Actors on Actors” cats of (as captured by Weekly entertainment). It’s been a while since Olsen played Wanda – in last year’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, to be precise. Fahy asked Olsen if he missed her? Olsen was candid.
“No, I don’t know,” she replied. “I think I’ve been playing her for almost 10 years. And I’ve loved it. And I think the reason I don’t call Kevin Feige every day with ideas is because I’m really proud of this. what we were able to do. I think Wanda Vision was a truly surprising opportunity.
That said… “If someone told me I got fired from Marvel movies, I would be proud of what we did,” Olsen continued. “And I’m really trying to figure out how to load in other movies and characters so it becomes less of a wonder.”
Olsen received some of the highest marks for any actor in the MCU, especially when she showed off both the breadth and depth of her shape-shifting talents. Wanda Vision, in which she had to play acting types spanning decades as her character messy battled heartbreak. Now she can do that kind of thing without playing a character who creatively robs and slaughters other superheroes.
