WANDAVISION Star Elizabeth Olsen Teases Comic Accurate Scarlet Witch; Comments On DOCTOR STRANGE Sequel

WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen has shared her excitement to explore the Scarlet Witch's mental health problems in the Disney+ TV series, while also addressing those Doctor Strange sequel claims...

There's a huge amount of excitement surrounding WandaVision, and considering the fact that the Disney+ series will put the spotlight on the Scarlet Witch and her incredible reality-altering powers, it doesn't seem like a stretch to to say that it could be a game changer for both Wanda and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

In an interview with the New York Times, star Elizabeth Olsen revealed that one of the best parts of the series for her was being able to explore the comic accurate side of the powerful Avenger.

"WandaVision is such an incredible concept. It’s the first time we get to understand her as the Scarlet Witch that she is in the comics, and that’s exciting for me, because I haven’t yet been able to give her that time onscreen," Olsen said, referencing Wanda's frequent mental health issues (which have been a huge part of her stories in recent years, including House of M). 

"So that’s going to be fun," the actress continued. "She’s always been a representation of mental health and illness in the comics, and her major role is handling that stigma within Marvel."

Olsen refused to divulge any details on The Vision's return, and explained that she doesn't know much about her role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, noting that "it's still kind of early."

We're bound to hear more from the actress in the coming weeks, though Marvel Studios has yet to reveal the premiere date for WandaVision. We do, however, know that it's going to be with us before the end of 2020.
