Elizabeth Olsen on Accepting Her Fate as the Scarlet Witch

The portal to the multiverse is now open and Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is officially in theaters! 🌀

With the multiverse unlocked, master of the mystical arts, Doctor Strange, journeys into the unknown with mystical allies old and new. One of those allies is his fellow Avenger, Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch.

Hot on the heels of last year’s hit sensation, Marvel Studios Wanda Visionactress Elizabeth Olsen can’t help but be in awe of the woman Wanda Maximoff is now. At a press conference for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness earlier this week, Olsen commented, “In previous films before Wanda Vision, I chose a path for storytelling that was more grounded in sincerity, love, loss, grief. And with Wanda VisionI have to become anything and everything, and really, really grow [Wanda] as a woman.”

“And leading her to [accept] that she is this mythical woman,” Olsen continued. “It’s her destiny. And I hope in this film people will see this continuation of her acceptance of who she is, the journey that she’s been on to get to this moment. I feel like she has a lot more clarity now than ever in this movie.


When asked the scenario of who would win in a battle between the two wizards, Doctor Strange or Scarlet Witch, Olsen cheekily replied, “Well…I think we all know who would win.”

The titular star Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Doctor Strange, added, “She’s pretty all-powerful, let’s be honest,” before adding, “Oh, I have an identity. I have humility. I can accept that.”

Will everything come to a head in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? Head to theaters and find out now!
