“Elizabeth Olsen Reflects on Scarlet Witch Role in the MCU: Proud of Accomplishments, but Doesn’t Miss Playing the Character”

Elizabeth Olsen, who debuted as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015, has revealed that she does not miss playing the character. The actress played Scarlet Witch in a slew of movies and TV shows, including Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, WandaVision, and Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Although there are no plans for Olsen to return as the character, she is still proud of her work on the role. In an Actors on Actors interview with Meghann Fahy in Variety, Olsen said that she loved playing Scarlet Witch for almost 10 years, but she has no intention of calling Marvel president Kevin Feige every day with new ideas because she’s content with what they accomplished.

Wanda: It's been eight years since Elizabeth Olsen made her debut as Wanda Maximoff a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, though the actress reveals she does not 'miss' playing the character

It’s been quite a long time since Elizabeth Olsen first appeared on screen as Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlet Witch. However, the actress has recently shared that she doesn’t necessarily feel nostalgic about playing the character.

Character: Olsen, 34, debuted as Scarlet Witch in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, and she would return in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, 2018's Avengers: Infinity War, 2019's Avengers: Endgame, the 2021 TV series WandaVision and 2022's Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

Olsen, aged 34, made her debut as Scarlet Witch in the 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron. She later starred in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and the TV series WandaVision (2021), as well as Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (2022). The actress expressed her excitement at being given the chance to work on WandaVision, which reunited her with Paul Bettany’s Vision, calling it a surprise opportunity. Olsen also stated that she would be proud of her work even if Marvel decided to let her go. She hopes to branch out into other films and characters to take a break from the Marvel universe. Her co-star, Fahy, praised her honesty and applauded her answer. It is unclear whether Olsen will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially considering her character’s fate in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. The last time we saw Wanda, she was crushed by a building while destroying the evil book of sorcery known as the Darkhold. However, the exploration of the multiverse allows for different versions of Wanda to appear, and Kevin Feige has indicated that there are still many core storylines from the comics that have yet to be explored.

Surprised: She added that the 2021 TV series WandaVision, which reunited her with Paul Bettany's Vision, 'was a really surprising opportunity'

Taken aback: The actress expressed her surprise at being able to work with Paul Bettany’s Vision once again in the 2021 TV series WandaVision, describing it as an unexpected opportunity.

Fired: 'If someone were to tell me that I¿m fired from Marvel movies, I will feel proud of what we made,' she said

The actress expressed that if someone were to tell her she was fired from Marvel movies, she would still feel proud of the work they had accomplished. She also mentioned how much she enjoyed working with her colleague, and hinted at the possibility of them collaborating again in the future. In interviews leading up to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Olsen admitted to feeling nervous about the direction her character took, particularly since she hadn’t finished filming WandaVision at the time. However, she eventually came to appreciate the opportunity to showcase her character’s complexity and manipulate audiences’ emotions.
