With the passage of time, one of the fundamental characters of the UCM has been the Scarlet Witch. A mutant in the comics, Wanda Maximoff became so important that she had her own series alongside actor Paul Bettany with WandaVision. However, Elizabeth Olsen is no stranger to reprising the character.
“No, I don’t miss her. I think it’s been almost 10 years playing her. And I’ve loved it. And I think the reason I’m not calling Kevin Feige every day with ideas is because I’m so proud of what he’s doing. we have been able to do”, explains Olsen, as collected from ComicBook.
There have been six UCM films in which the actress has appeared giving life to one of the most powerful heroines in all of Marvel. Her powers, capable of her using the forces of chaos, give her unique abilities, such as distort reality at will if he deems it necessary. In fact, that is the starting point for Wandavision.
“I think WandaVision was a really amazing opportunity. If someone told me I’m fired from Marvel movies, I’d be proud of what we did. And I’m really trying to figure out how to carry other movies and characters, so it becomes least about Marvel after all.”
The last time we could see her playing Maximoff was during the events of Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, a movie in which Sam Raimi made sure she came across as an unfeeling lunatic. There it seemed that her presence in the UCM ended, although never say never.
