Elizabeth Olsen is best known for her Marvel-verse character, the enigmatic Scarlet Witch. The charming actress has now portrayed the character in multiple movies, even getting her own Disney+ original titled WandaVision. Last seen in $952 Million Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Oslen recalls how frustrating it was for her.
After Scott Derrickson was replaced by Sam Raimi, many changes were introduced to the Doctor Strange storyline. From re-shooting to re-writing, the original storyline was changed and so was the role of Wanda in the Multiverse Madness. Elizabeth Olsen admits at some point or the other, she stopped reading the constantly changing script.

In an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Elizabeth Olsen revealed how annoying it was to have constant changes made in the script. When asked whether the script resembled the original draft or not, Olsen replied,
“It resembled more than I thought it was going to. I mean, there were definitely moments where… there’s a point in making the movie where I just stopped reading drafts. I was just like, ‘This is going to change again. Just keep me posted with the information I need and you guys fill in the blanks that you need. But I’ll just keep my lane…’ That one was a wild ride.”
With Olsen calling her experience nothing short of a ‘wild ride’, we can make out the shoot presented definite challenges for the Marvel actress. Despite the bottlenecks and problematic changes, Elizabeth Olsen still managed to present us with an amazing performance. It is not easy to have last-minute changes when portraying a character as complex as Wanda, but Olsen being competent as she is, managed to complete the job with as much grace and finesse as possible.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Sudden Character Change Disappoints Fans
If you recall watching WandaVision, it showcased Wanda with somewhat of a redemptive arc. Despite the comics turning Wanda into a villain, fans did not expect that MCU would so quickly set her up for her destiny. In the second installment of Doctor Strange 2, we see Wanda turning back into villainy, much to the fan’s disappointment. The sudden character change was too shocking for many fans, who thought it was way too soon to present the evilness of Olsen’s character.
Furthermore, Elizabeth Olsen’s revelation that the makers of the Multiverse of Madness had not even seen WandaVision angered the fans even more. Since many of the emotions portrayed were just an extension of what we saw in WandaVision, Multiverse of Madness looked repetitive. Well, guess this is what happens when there is a clear line of miscommunication. Looks like MCU has a lot to work on in terms of establishing clear communication for successful storytelling.
