‘It’s very embarrassing shooting those kinds of things in public’: Elizabeth Olsen Revealed the One MCU Scene She’s Happy Now That it’s Over

Elizabeth Olsen Revealed the One MCU Scene She's Happy Now That it's Over

Elizabeth Olsen’s latest appearance as The Scarlet Witch created an uproar bigger than that for Doctor Strange himself. Playing a Wanda Maximoff who had conflicted morals; Elizabeth Olsen’s character was the main antagonist of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness. Her acting had been appreciated throughout the run of the film and many stated her to be the best part of the film.

In a recent interview with Variety, the actress opened up about a lot of things including her experience filming the numerous vast roles she has appeared in. Her role as the broken cult escapee in Martha Marcy May Marlene from 2011, a clueless FBI agent in Wind River, a selfish influencer in Ingrid Goes West, and of course, the tragic, horrifying Wanda Maximoff (the Scarlet Witch) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; all brought fans of Elizabeth Olsen to admire her further.

The Embarrassing Shoots For Elizabeth Olsen On The Sets Of Marvel

Having worked with numerous actors and superheroes enacted by those actors, Elizabeth Olsen has encountered her fair share of moments where she found herself rather embarrassed due to the way some scenes were to be acted out. Being the Scarlet Witch, Olsen has to often act in a way that highly depends on the VFX team and further CGI to then work on her movements later.

Wanda Maximoff has often been seen with her signature red influxes of energy lifting objects, often cars and even people. These effects are not visible while one is filming the scene, so to the outside eye, or for the matter of fact, Olsen herself, it appears to only be waving hands awkwardly at nothing in particular.

“You’re like — [holds out her hand]. Ugh, I’m doing this in public. But you have one hand out that’s stopping something with energy. And then you’ve got another hand that’s extracting this fake thing from this dotted face. And it’s painful and emotional.”

The actress conveys how the scenes require a lot of intense emotions which get very weird to portray while seeing Paul Bettany all purple and covered in glitter. She continues to state how his ears get extremely sweaty as well and so it seems as if they are dripping with water.

The actress further told Variety about how she had not met John Krasinski at all even though Wanda had unfortunately torn Mister Fantastic intro shreds in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness. Elizabeth Olsen said that she had shot the scene with her stand-in and only later did she discover Krasinski’s involvement in the movie.

Tom Holland too had previously revealed how he had been told that Tony Stark’s funeral post the climax of Avengers: Endgame was a funeral. By the looks of it, Elizabeth Olsen too had been informed of the same. She had only been informed about her parts and was aware of the story progression only according to the script she had received, much like every other Marvel actor.
