Elizabeth Olsen has been a part of the MCU for several years now but is just now starting to shine. Not that she wasn’t amazing before, it’s just that now she’s really coming front and center. Elizabeth Olsen is teasing Wanda’s journey from WandaVision to Doctor Strange 2.
Olsen just played Wanda for the Disney+ series WandaVision. The entire show centered on the Scarlet Witch. It was an incredible and emotional journey. The entire show was an exploration of Wanda’s grief over the events of the last few years.
Olsen will be returning as the Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. Olsen has been teasing her role in that film. She claims that her character will undergo some changes. She also says that she feels a stronger connection to her character than ever before.
Wanda recently spoke about her future portrayals as Wanda with Glamour Spain.
“I have spent the last 7 years playing this character and she has changed and grown with me,” said Olsen. “But it wasn’t until WandaVision, and now Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, that I felt a sense of ownership and creative license with her.” She went on to ask about her role in Doctor Strange 2, “Every Marvel movie is unique and this one is sure to surprise fans. I can’t wait to see your reaction, especially when it comes to the WandaVision part.”
We don’t know for sure but it seems like Doctor Strange 2 will pick up not too long after WandaVision. Wanda seemed like she was learning to deal with her grief when the series ended but maybe there’s more to it than that?
The real question is how far will Wanda go to get her children back? Her husband? We’re not sure, but if she’s willing to mess with the multiverse this might put her at odds with Dr. Strange.
It will certainly be interesting to see.
WandaVision was incredibly well-received, and Olsen even touched on that during her interview.
“At first I was terrified. It was overwhelming to translate this character into a sitcom, and also in the wake of several decades of this type of format, and then return to the reality of Marvel. But I loved the story and I loved the journey that we took the audience on. Olsen added, “I don’t expect anything, I don’t think about success. But the fact that he had it is still something I’m trying to understand.”
