WandaVision was Elizabeth Olsen’s exercise to reclaim her and Wanda’s power
Despite his status as a superhero on screen, Elizabeth olsen admits to Vanity Fair‘s Joanna robinson that she has “panic dreams” before starting a new project. This has never been more the case with WandaVision, the Disney + series which imagined Wanda Maximoff and Vision’s (Paul bettany) married adventures through a sitcom-style lens. But after the show premiered with rave reviews and an enthusiastic fan base, Olsen’s nerves about launching the Marvel TV Empire might melt, right?
That is, until she dresses like the scarlet witch again for Sam raimimore to come, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Although a writer Michel waldron compared the main character to Indiana Jones, Olsen insists the end product is more daring than that character’s action epics. “I think it’s more than a brilliant Indiana Jones movie, which I love Indiana Jones,” Olsen said last Little golden men episode, adding, “But I feel like something darker is going on.”
This week Little golden men podcast is a double Disney + feature film, featuring an interview with Sebastien stan of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (also courtesy of Joanna). she joined Vanity FairHollywood’s executive editor, Jeff Giles, Richard Lawson, and Katey rich in a conversation about Witness, which gave Harrison ford his only Oscar nomination to date. Other hot topics include the poor box office performance of In the heights, Emmy buzz for Bo burnhamis special netflix Inside, and the latest version of Pixar Luca, that’s coming to Disney + on Friday.

Read a partial transcript of Elizabeth Olsen’s interview below.
You mentioned Wanda stepping into her own power, discovering her power. Something that strikes me as so interesting is that you were working as an executive producer on Sorry for your loss. And I was wondering what has this experience taught you about your power, your ability to influence your acting choices or your acting roles in the future?
It was unbelievable. It was truly one of the best learning experiences I could have had. I saw how anything can be done if I ever wanted to achieve something, which I’m not sure about yet. But I saw how perhaps the healthiest way to put on a show is to go to a writers room, do all the travel between the two, the editing, the color correction and the sound mixing. All the things I wanted to experience I was able to do on this show. And that created this endless voice in my head that now voices all of her opinions when I’m on set. It’s great to work with. Like, I’m starting to work with another director right now and it’s great to just say, when people sometimes ask me, “How would you like to work?” I wouldn’t really know how to answer that because I’ve always been malleable if other actors like to work in a specific way. I’m cool to be fluid in this area.
Now I can just say, “It’s really good for me to have all the information, just so that I don’t have to ask myself questions in my head and think, why are they doing this instead of? that? But if I just have the information of “Oh, that’s a problem, then we do it instead”, then I’m not going to try to invent what the problem is and spend weeks trying to figure it out. : “Why are we doing it this way? SI know this is now something. I just like having information, even when I’m not a producer. It just helped. I’m sure other actors would say, “How the hell could you keep this all straight?” And it really rests my brain. It rests my monkey brain, I think. just to have facts and information on how everything is going, why the schedules are changing. Yes, I loved this experience.
