Elizabeth Olsen’s portrayal of Wanda Maximoff in WandaVision and the other movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one to behold, and Marvel fans have been simping for the 33-year-old star ever since her MCU debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. As of now, she’s reportedly looking to make her way into the hearts of another famous piece of work.
As you may or may not have guessed, we’re talking about the Game of Thrones fandom. And although we know that GoT has made its run of 8 seasons already, Olsen is reportedly in talks to join the cast of the GoT prequel about the Targaryen called House of the Dragon.
Elizabeth Olsen Reportedly The Latest Addition In House of the Targaryen
House of the Dragon is already establishing itself as a worthy prequel that can deliver the gritty story and atmosphere that Game of Thrones was able to provide in eight long seasons. The show’s first episode had 10 million households tuning in, and the second episode also saw a 2% rise in viewership, a massive achievement considering views usually fall off after the pilot episode of TV shows.
Just to be clear, Elizabeth Olsen won’t be making an appearance in the remaining episodes that are yet to be aired in the first season of House of the Dragon, but rather in the second season, according to GIANT FREAKIN ROBOT. They also reported that the new showrunner Ryan Condal is speculated to have brought the WandaVision actor into the series.
While there is currently no confirmation about the character that will be assigned to her, we hope it’s a badass one. You can also read up on those fan theories to entice yourselves with this exclusive breaking news about Olsen boarding the Targaryen ship.
Will Wanda Maximoff Return For The MCU?
As a lot of you guys would have already known, especially Marvel fans, Wanda Maximoff’s spiral into the villainous Scarlet Witch at the end of WandaVision, and her subsequent acceptance of her villainy in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness also saw her ultimate sacrifice in the end.
But according to the movie’s scriptwriter Michael Waldron, Scarlet Witch’s future is ambiguous. The screenwriter’s words came out when he was asked about the status of Maximoff in the MCU during an interview with Empire Magazine, here’s what he said-
“She’s removing herself from the board… For now? Forever? We’ll see. I’d like to see her again…”
As ambiguous as the future for Elizabeth Olsen’s character is, Waldron hints at the possibility of her return. Honestly, Olsen mastered the role of the Scarlet Witch so well that seeing any other actor put on her shoes would just feel wrong, but we can only pray.
