Elizabeth Olsen: Advice for Future Marvel Stars
Elizabeth Olsen, who played the heroine Wanda Maximoff in five films and the miniseries Wandavision, recently gave some important advice to future Marvel stars. In a chat with journalist Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Olsen recommended that actors consider signing a contract for a single film when playing a superhero. By doing so, one can have greater “creative control” over the future of that character. Olsen emphasized that committing to a single title is the way in which an actor can have “more mastery” over the future of their own superhero.
Wandavision: Olsen’s Latest Venture
At the beginning of 2021, Elizabeth Olsen starred with Paul Bettany in Wandavision, a nine-episode miniseries released on Disney +. The story focused on The Scarlet Witch and Vision, two characters whose fate had been undone after the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The miniseries, which takes place in a typical 1950s television setting, revolves around the couple settling into suburban life and raises a real question mark as to whether it is all a dream. As the story progresses, it becomes clear that The Scarlet Witch has unimaginable powers that can alter reality.
Olsen’s Acting Career: From Comfort to Intimidation
In an interview with Elle magazine, Olsen discussed her journey in the acting industry. Although she had initially desired to act in the kind of projects she grew up watching, such as Star Wars, she ironically ended up in Marvel films. However, she explained that Wandavision was a project that pushed her out of her comfort zone and offered a character completely different from what she had done before.
In conclusion, Elizabeth Olsen’s advice to future Marvel stars is to sign a contract for a single film to have creative control over the future of their own superhero. Her latest venture, Wandavision, is a testament to her ability to take on challenging roles and push herself as an actress.
