Can Doctor Strange Beat Scarlet Witch? Elizabeth Olsen & Benedict Cumberbatch Give Honest Opinion

A recent interview says Elizabeth Olsen knows who would likely win in a fight against Wanda Maximoff and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. Cinematic Universe (MCU), and Cumberbatch were asked if a theme on the set of the upcoming Marvel movie was which of the two powerful superheroes would win if they went toe-to-toe. And this is how both of them replied, read further to now.

Followed by the, 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige said Wanda was the most powerful Avenger. And no doubt in this, because that was before the character gained even more power from Agatha Harkness in 2021’s WandaVision.

Olsen commented a few things to the press, including Insider, during Sunday’s press conference for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. She added:

“I think we all know who would win punch for punch”

Taking the point towards the “Multiverse of Madness” after her Disney+ series, Olsen said:

“With WandaVision, I got to become anything and everything, and really, really grow her into a woman and leading her to accepting that she is this mythic woman and that that is her destiny. And I hope that in this film, people see that continuation of her acceptance of who she is and the journey that she has taken to get to this moment.”

Olsen quickly added:

“I don’t know. I’m making stuff up.”

Olsen as Wanda says that we’ll find her character in “a place of strength” when we see her in the “Doctor Strange” sequel. To that, Cumberbatch said in response to his costar:

“She’s pretty all-powerful, let’s be honest.”

The interviewer asked if Scarlet Witch will win over Dr. Strange both and of them strongly agreed. It was so charming of Benedict as well to see how he reacted so humbly throughout the interview.
Doctor Strange 2 packs as many characters as possible around the titular doctor, but the strong supporting cast only underscores the weakness of Doctor Strange’s own evolution.

This review says Elizabeth Olsen gives the film’s most arresting performance as Scarlet Witch. If this sounds like a multiverse you want to be a part of, you should probably look into reserving your seat in the theater, because the premiere is just around the corner of today, May 6.
