After 8 years spent in the Marvel cinematic universe with only one role, Olsen “had a certain discouragement”.
According to Variety, Elizabeth Olsen has assumed the role of Wanda Maximoff – Scarlet Witch since her brief appearance at the end of the movie “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” in 2014. The Scarlet Witch character debuted more fully in movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” a year later. Next was the series “WandaVision” which took her another 7 years, earning her an Emmy Award nomination.

During the entire time playing this role for the Marvel cinematic universe (MCU), Olsen was forced to miss many other roles in other film genres.

After eight years spent in the Marvel cinematic universe with only one role, Olsen told the New York Times: “It took away all the ability to participate in other movies that I could enjoy more when watching again. As an audience, this is my most sincere sharing.”

One of the films that Elizabeth Olsen regrets not being in is “The Lobster” by director Yorgos Lanthimos, which won the jury award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for an Oscar for original script. At this time, she signed an exclusive contract with Marvel.

“I started to feel frustrated. I had a secure job but lost pieces of me that felt like a part of who I was. The more I moved away from that, the less I had opportunity to find that piece again,” Olsen said.

Elizabeth Olsen has been more accepted by audiences in the MCU lately, especially thanks to her starring role in WandaVision. The movie “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” starring her and Benedict Cumberbatch also brings in huge revenue at the present time – more than 187 million USD.

However, Olsen also said that she loves this character so much that she will participate in a solo movie about Scarlet Witch, but she needs a really good script.

“I think I’ll be in my own movie. But it really needs to be a good story. I think these movies are best when it’s not about the content but has a clear and strong point of view.” strong,” she said.
