Elizabeth Olsen has opened up about her and director Sam Raimi’s idea for the character Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch in Doctor Stage in the Multiverse of Madness.
To ET as reported on Friday (6/5) in the United States, Olsen said they included a touch of Asian horror to strengthen the horror atmosphere of Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch.
“There were certain things that Sam Raimi asked me to do and I was like ‘really?’
“I kept trying to incorporate that part of the Korean horror genre that we instilled into him [Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch]like the physical language, as much as possible.”
“I’m excited to be able to play there, and with Sam,” Olsen said.
Elizabeth Olsen in Doctor Strange 2 returns to play the role of Wanda Maximoff, who this time has become a powerful Scarlet Witch, after the Westview incident in the WandaVision series.
In this film, Wanda was originally the person Doctor Strange relied on to deal with attacks from monsters from across other universes. But apparently Wanda had other intentions.
Regarding this intention, Olsen said that his passion for Wanda’s figure was deepened because it involved emotions as a mother.
“I really like being called someone’s mother. It’s something I wasn’t aware of before, but I have experienced it a lot,” Olsen said.
“I like to play with his tone [Wanda Maximoff], his soul, his anger, his love. I really love him and I fight for him.”
Doctor Strange 2 tells the story of the struggle of Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to face various strange events due to the open doorway of the universe after the events in Spider-Man No Way Home.
In the teasers and trailers that have been released by Marvel previously, it shows the presence of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) who was last known to be studying Darkhold and trying to learn to control the Chaos Magic that she experienced.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the second Doctor Strange (2016) saga and will take place after Spider-Man No Way Home, WandaVision, and Loki.
Benedict Cumberbatch still stars in the film, along with Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda/Scarlet Witch.
