“At the beginning of this film, for the first time, we meet a Wanda who stands firm in what she believes in, and is lucid”, but without a doubt later things prove not to be so simple for this character to whom embodies Elizabeth Olsen, an actress who reprises her Scarlet Witch in ‘Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness’.
After that tremendous finale of her series, which placed her isolated on a mountain studying the Darkhold, Wanda will have to decide what role she plays 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 from her with her power, and I think that at the beginning of the film she feels a lot of confidence in her beliefs. She is at a point of confidence and lucidity,” the actress tells us. But not only will Scarlet Witch’s self-confidence shine brightly in the sequel to ‘Doctor Strange 2’, 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 may 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. She is, although I don’t know if you’ll see that 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 either be set after ‘Into the Multiverse of Madness,’ or someone would have to get really 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 what 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.
“Yes, I’ve thought about it, I don’t know when it will happen, but I see her being an old woman, which I would be interested in playing at some point, wearing a lot 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 aging as she does in some of the comics. I’m very proud of what we have built and everything that I have been able to pose with this character for so long, [si le digo adiós] I would be satisfied with what we have done, “he says. For 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!
