“SamRaimi to maybe direct SecretWars, based on DECADES of movies and shows?Dude couldn’t even watch 9 half-hour episodes of WandaVision.”

Sam Raimi said he only watched the key moments from Wanda Vision
The character Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, was included in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Raimi was questioned during an interview if he watched WandaVision before directing the character into the film. Raimi explained that he had only watched key moments from the sitcom to understand the details of Elizabeth Olsen’s character.
He said he watched only those key episodes and significant moments that were important for the storyline, Raimi said,
“I never even saw all of ‘WandaVision’; I’ve just seen key moments of some episodes that I was told directly impact our storyline. I’m not really sure what the ‘WandaVision’ schedule was or how it changed. I just know that halfway, or maybe three-quarters of the way into our writing process, I’d first heard of this show they were doing and that we would have to follow it.”
Olsen stated that her experiences working on WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness were vastly different. The actress stated that the producers and director Raimi were incredibly encouraging throughout the filming, explaining every small detail to her.
