Although the potential Sorcerer Supreme could have the highest charge in Marvel Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness, a significant number of people are likely to appear for Wanda Maximoff Elizabeth Olsen. It’s been years since Wanda was first introduced Avengers: The Age of Ultron, and her journey from Sokovia to the multiverse was long and winding. But in Olsen’s mind, the journey of her character was powerful.
Ago WandaVision, Wanda Maximoff was still a supporting character at MCU and far from her comic book colleague: a powerful witch who first joined the Avengers just months after she was introduced as the X-Men villain. Wanda’s sitcom revealed the magical origins of her chaotic powers with a story about how sadness can distort a person’s relationship with reality, and after that, it was really fascinating to wonder how the Scarlet Witch would affect Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness.
During the recent The multiverse of madness press event, Olsen opened about the connective tissue in between WandaVision and Dr. Strange sequel – and how Wanda’s evolution from a mere psychic to a mythical witch began with her magical enslavement of the city. Wanda’s actions lately weren’t exactly heroic, but Olsen stood by her and said he thought the character’s arc was consistent.
“My biggest goal in everything is to play lawyer according to my character and defend, defend, defend,” Olsen said. “Whether their greatest strength is their greatest weakness, wherever they come from or whatever they process, my goal is just to defend their perspective.”
Wanda’s perspective was one of the more questionable things to monitor WandaVisionIn the finale where she finally tackled the meanness of what she did to Westview, New Jersey. Freeing the residents of Westview meant undoing the hex that gave birth to Wanda’s twin sons and the facsimile of Vision with whom she lived in domestic bliss. Although WandaVision turned Wanda into the Scarlet Witch, he did so by putting her through an existential bell tower, no different from the years of editorial hell Wanda faced in comics after destroying the world’s mutants.
Between the complex traumas of losing her husband and sons and the deceived belief that her dead brother was resurrected, so much has happened to Wanda since WandaVision the finale to which he returns The multiverse of madness it might have seemed almost premature. But Olsen was quick to explain that Wanda was in a constant state of mind in her mind that emotions were bigger than life basically from the moment she joined the MCU. It’s a key part of each of Wanda, new and old, she portrays in the new film.
“Even in WandaVision – in fact all the films I had to make – she constantly crosses this line and usually her biggest emotional losses or sorrows are when something is born, ”Olsen said. “It was kind of a trend and I think we’re going to achieve that in this film, which is something I’m happy about.”
Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness it’s in theaters now.
