Marvel’s Elizabeth Olsen Says No Scarlet Witch Movie Plans Right Now

  • Warning: There are spoilers ahead for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”
  • “Doctor Strange 2” leaves Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) fate up in the air.
  • Olsen told “Good Morning America” ​​there currently aren’t plans for Wanda to appear in her own movie.

“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” out now in theaters, leaves the fate of Wanda Maximoff / the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) up in the air.

The last time we see the Scarlet Witch, she’s bringing down the Darkhold Castle on Wundagore Mountain. Fans are led to believe she may have tragically perished along with it.

Certainly it has to take more than that to kill off one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful characters, right? If you’re hoping to see Wanda again in her own spin-off movie, star Elizabeth Olsen says not so fast.

“There’s no plan and I’m serious,” Olsen said during an interview with “Good Morning America” ​​when asked by Michael Strahan if her character is getting her own movie.

“I’m not a good liar. I wish I had a plan and I’m not sure,” Olsen said, adding of “Multiverse of Madness,” I really am excited for fans to see this film because it is something very different from what they’ve seen and I’m really curious to hear what they want after because I think it is a very surprising film. “

Olsen’s right.

“Multiverse of Madness” is filled with surprises as Olsen’s character goes full villain in the “Doctor Strange” sequel, brutally killing off a number of characters all in the hopes of getting a chance to be reunited with her twin sons.

“I think it’s pretty shocking, the ending,” Olsen said. “Fans are usually the smartest ones for stories when it comes to these deep comic-book storylines that I’m not as familiar with. So, I’m curious what they would want.”

Olsen added that she is “open” to the idea of ​​appearing in her own standalone Marvel movie in the future “as long as the story’s good.”

If you’re holding out hope that Wanda could make a cameo on Disney +’s upcoming “House of Harkness” series featuring Kathryn Hahn’s Agatha Harkness, Olsen said she does not know anything about appearing in that upcoming show either, yet.

“I would do anything with Hahn,” Olsen said before adding, “I’m not appearing in it – not as far as I’m aware.”

“I hope Kevin’s watching,” Olsen added, referencing Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige.
