Elizabeth Olsen Praises WandaVision Plot, Calls Kevin Feige a Genius

Elizabeth Olsen, the actor best known for portraying Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is currently promoting the second season of her Facebook Watch series, Sorry For Your Loss. The actor has been conducting many interviews this month to plug the show and discuss her upcoming involvement in Marvel’s Phase Four. Not only is Olsen starring alongside Paul Bettany in the Disny+ series, WandaVision, but she’ll also be a major player in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Olsen was recently interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, where she talked about her excitement over WandaVision and Kevin Feige's vision.

“It’s a really clever story, and it’s surprising,” Olsen shared. “It’ll be a good time, and I think fans will really get excited by it as well.”

“I heard the premise and I understood it immediately. I was like, ‘Kevin Feige, you’re a genius,'" she added. “I have other questions that I probably still don’t have answers for right now, but I understood exactly what he wanted to do and that really excited me.”

WandaVision has been described as "half classic sitcom, half MCU spectacular." The series will also feature Marvel alums Kat Dennings (Darcy from Thor and Thor: The Dark World) and Randall Park (Agent Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp) as well as MCU newbie, Kathryn Hahn (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Transparent). The whole cast was previously interviewed by Entertainment Weekly and teased what fans can expect from the show.

“It is a mash-up between American sitcoms throughout the decades and Marvel film with these characters,” Olsen teased.

“That’s where it starts,” Bettany explained, “and then it sort of snowballs into an epic Marvel movie that you’ve grown to know or love.”

“I think there’s been a real progression in the characters and the relationship and to actually be able to spend the time on that,” he added. “Each time there’s more exciting stuff for us to do... The scripts we are reading so far are so bonkers.”
