Elizabeth Olsen is no new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having first appeared in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron as Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch. She has now appeared in five additional MCU films, including the box office smash Avengers: Endgame. Her part in the Disney+ series WandaVision, however, brought her the greatest recognition. She was not only nominated for an Emmy for her performance but the show too was garnered three Emmys, making it the first MCU product to do so.
There’s no confirmation regarding what Olsen will do next now that Phase 4 of the MCU has started, but there’s been a lot of hype recently about Elizabeth Olsen possibly landing her own Scarlet Witch solo film. While Marvel is yet to disclose anything, Olsen addressed the rumors herself lately.
Elizabeth Olsen on the Solo Film
Olsen discussed the possibility of Marvel Studios making a Scarlet Witch solo film during an interview with On Demand Entertainment for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
When questioned if this is in the plans for Olsen, she said she had no idea, but that she would happily star in a Scarlet Witch film if Marvel had a decent narrative to tell. She, on the other hand, wouldn’t mind taking on that challenge after a brief break from the Marvel universe:
Interviewer: “Wanda’s had her own TV series, which is fine, but when is she getting her own movie?”
Olsen: “Oh, I don’t know, but if they have a good story to tell, I’ll be there.”
Interviewer: “After a long break first?”
Olsen: “Yes, exactly, or even a little one. Just some version of a break.”
Olsen has not only gone from working on WandaVision to Doctor Strange 2, but she has also played the same character for the previous eight years. However, it appears like Olsen is positive about her future in the franchise, and it’s reassuring to hear that she’s eager to create her own solo film. This news surely has ignited a ray of hope for most of us. It somehow has added to our thrill to see what Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has stored for us. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role of Doctor Strange, this flick will be released in the there’s on 6th May 2022. See you there then!
