Elizabeth Olson Says She Mangled Her Scarlet Witch Message
Marvel Studios has a lot original shows coming to Disney+ including WandaVision, which will feature both Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany in their signature roles. During a recently interview with BUILD Series, Olson said that Kevin Feige gave her some advice before Marvel’s Comic-Con presentation However, it didn’t go as planned.
“Kevin Feige, when we were teasing it at Comic-Con for the first time, he was like, ‘Say a sentence about how people are gonna discover that through this show they’ll finally learn ‘Scarlet Witch’ and why she’s called Scarlet Witch,’” explained Olsen. “I was like, ‘Okay,’ and then I got on stage and was like, ‘We’ll see Wanda as Scarlet Witch’. I was so intimidated by the 8,000 people [and] I totally blew it.”
“I’m just so excited for fans because if they know anything about the Scarlet Witch in the comics, I think this show will just get them so excited,” continued Olson. “This show will explore why she’s known as Scarlet Witch and how she is Scarlet Witch as opposed to Wanda. We’ve always referred to her as Wanda in our films, so it’s an exciting opportunity,” she said.
The full interview is available in the video below. There aren’t too many story details about WandaVision yet, but the show won’t premiere on Disney+ until sometime in 2021. Hopefully, we’ll see a glimpse of what it has in store sooner than that.
