Elizabeth Olsen, who just appeared in Doctor Strange 2, has commented on whether she would reprise her role in the future WandaVision spin-off. While there is no news on whether the program will return for a second season, a spin-off based on witch Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) is in the making.

Wanda’s journey through Marvel:
After an uncredited appearance in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the actress debuted as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015. Since then, she has moved on to feature in many MCU films, including the critically praised Disney+ miniseries. Wanda’s plotline in The Multiverse of Madness has sparked speculation about whether the magic-wielding protagonist may return in upcoming movies.
Wanda turns fully evil in the film directed by Sam Raimi, as she attempts to reconcile with her children at any costs. However, she realizes her dreadful crimes in the last moments and appears to sacrifice herself. But is the Scarlet Witch truly dead? Only time will tell, but Olsen is optimistic about a possible return in the future. “I’m just making the assumption that they’ll have me again. I don’t know to what capacity, but I hope I’m back,” she said.

What Olsen said about her WandaVision return:
Unfortunately, as far as we hear, Olsen will not be appearing in the WandaVision spinoff. On Good Morning America, the actress teased of a hypothetical return on the spin-off, “I would do anything with Hahn. I mean, no, I’m not appearing on it, not as far as I’m aware of. But I love that woman so much. So fun, that entire show was just filled with lots of joy, it was great”. Olsen then joked: “I hope [Marvel Studios president and producer] Kevin Feige is watching.”
Although she has no idea if or when Wanda Maximoff would return, she is open to further projects as her, provided they are interesting. She described the last sequences of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as startling. “I think it’s pretty shocking, the ending. Fans are usually the smartest ones for stories when it comes to these deep comic book storylines that I’m not as familiar with, and so I’m curious what they would want,” she said.
