“I still don’t really have a plan”: Elizabeth Olsen Warns Marvel Actors Not to Sign Multiple Projects After Claiming She Doesn’t Enjoy MCU Movies Anymore

Elizabeth Olsen, who comes from a family of actors, has been in the film business since she was four. But it was her role as Wanda Maximoff that made her a worldwide star. Given the number of MCU projects she has appeared in, it might look like she enjoys it a little but that does not seem to be the case.

“I didn’t really have a philosophy or a plan, and I still don’t really have a plan, but more of a philosophy I guess. And that’s nice to know and that’s nice to have and that’s good information when looking through projects with that kind of lens and knowledge now.”

While Olsen has no plans to sign up for any other ongoing franchise, she would be happy to work with different directors exploring her own creative persona and taking up challenges that inspire her performance.

With 10 years of experience in the Marvel universe, and hopefully, more down the line, Olsen shared a very valuable piece of advice for actors hoping to get their career breaks in the MCU. Olsen recalls when actors ask her advice about joining the MCU, the Multiverse of Madness star usually tells them to sign up for just one project.


“That way you have more control. Let’s say you’re like, ‘Oh my God, this was the most fun I’ve ever had and I love this character so much. I want to do it again.’ You now have more creative controls for the next one.”

Well, Elizabeth Olsen isn’t wrong seeing the lack of creative freedom one might have when signing up for multiple projects at once, especially when it comes to complex franchises like the MCU.

Elizabeth Olsen Jumps On The “Marvel: Art or Not” Debate

While she is not somebody who would sit down and watch Marvel movies for fun, Elizabeth Olsen would not describe them as not ‘art’. She often feels frustrated when people deem them to be a lesser kind of art. In an interview with The Independent, she said,

“I’m not saying we’re making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me. I totally understand that there’s a different kind of performance that’s happening. But I do think throwing Marvel under the bus takes away from the hundreds of very talented crew people. That’s where I get a little feisty about that.”

Elizabeth Olsen is right to say what she did, since when do we have a definite definition of what art is?

You can stream Olsen’s WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on Disney Plus.
