“At the beginning of this film, for the first time, we meet a Wanda who stands firm on what she believes in, and is lucid“but without a doubt later things show not be so simple for this character who is played by Elizabeth Olsen, an actress who reprises her Scarlet Witch in ‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness’.
After that tremendous finale of his series, to place her isolated on a mountain studying the DarkholdWanda will have to decide what role does it play in the multiversal chaos that is unleashed with the arrival of America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a choice that she will make completely convinced. “We have seen her suffer a lot with her power, and I think that at the beginning of the film she feels very confident in her beliefs. You are at a point of confidence and lucidity“, the actress tells us. But it’s not just self-confidence that will make Scarlet Witch shine brightly in the ‘Doctor Strange 2’ sequel, Will her display of power prove that she is the most powerful in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? “I don’t know, maybe it is. Some fans might interpret it that way, I don’t know. We already tried to show that in ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision.’ I think she is the most powerful in the universe for many reasons. It is, although I don’t know if that will be seen in this movie“.
Perhaps there is still room for an even more spectacular evolution of Wanda’s abilities, a character whose story could continue with a second season of ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision? “I do not think that [una temporada 2] It’s going to happen, but Marvel writes its own rules and I didn’t even expect to star in a series. Now we’re continuing Wanda’s narrative arc in this movie, so if ‘Scarlet Witch’ had another season, it would be set after ‘Into the Multiverse of Madness,’ or someone would have to get very creative to make it all fit together. I never take anything for granted, even if a character dies I always think ‘well, it’s Marvel, they can do whatever they want, they can bring him back if they want'”.
Elizabeth Olsen has been playing Wanda/ Scarlet Witch for almost a decade, in fact she belongs to a generation of heroes who have been retiring to make way for new additions. Hence, it was logical that this actress is already considering a possible end for her character.
“Yeah, I’ve thought about it, I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but I see her being an old lady, which I’d be interested in playing at some point, wearing a bunch of prosthetics or something. The thing is, I see both: I see myself saying goodbye to her, but at the same time I see her getting older like she does in some of the comics. I’m so proud of what we’ve built and everything I’ve been able to come up with with this character for so long, [si le digo adiós] I would be satisfied with what we have done“, he assures. At the moment we will see her in ‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness’, in theaters starting this May 6, and then… Kevin Feige will say!
