Elizabeth Olsen, the talented actress known for her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), recently shared her thoughts on the character’s future. With the multiverse now open, Olsen has exciting ideas about how to explore new dimensions of Scarlet Witch‘s personality and story.
During a recent interview with Variety, Elizabeth Olsen discussed her hopes for the future of Scarlet Witch in the MCU. She emphasized her desire to see the character develop in new ways, such as incorporating more humor and exploring the possibility of redemption for Wanda Maximoff.
Here is what Elizabeth Olsen said about Scarlet Witch’s next appearance:
“We can do anything with her now! I feel like we’ve done so much. Now, we can really have fun; I feel like there’s a lot more humor to be had with her. She’s often the emotion of a story, and I’m curious to see what we can explore. And hopefully, we can give her some redemption.“
Scarlet Witch played a significant role in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ ultimately becoming the film’s villain and meeting her apparent demise. Olsen initially struggled with the character’s transition from the vulnerable, fully-fleshed-out protagonist in ‘WandaVision’ to the villainous role in ‘Multiverse of Madness.’ Despite her initial reservations, she managed to reconcile the two portrayals and delivered a memorable performance.
The introduction of the multiverse in the MCU has opened up numerous storytelling opportunities, allowing for the exploration of new storylines and character arcs for Scarlet Witch. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has expressed his enthusiasm for the character’s potential, stating that he would work with Elizabeth Olsen for another 100 years if possible. The multiverse has also paved the way for the return of other characters who have seemingly met their end, such as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, who will be appearing in ‘Deadpool 3.’
Elizabeth Olsen’s vision for a humorous and redemptive future for Scarlet Witch in the MCU is a testament to the creative possibilities offered by the multiverse. As fans eagerly anticipate the character’s return, it is clear that the future holds exciting developments for Wanda Maximoff and the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
