Elizabeth Olsen Reacts To [SPOILER] Killing People In Doctor Strange 2
WARNING: This article contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness!,Elizabeth Olsen reacts to
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and some of the film’s extremely brutal violence.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has finally hit theaters and opened to a massive $185 million opening weekend. However, the film’s audience reaction has certainly been more on the mixed side, with the film landing a B+ Cinema Score which is the second-lowest grade any MCU film has received just beating out
Eternals B rating.,Part of that reaction could be due to one of the film’s most shocking reveals – that Wanda Maximoff a.k.a.
the Scarlet Witch was the film’s villain. While audiences knew the character would factor into the film since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, the trailers purposely hid the fact that she was the villain. Over the course of the movie, audiences watch Wanda kill off a number of characters to achieve her goals including variants of Marvel heroes in another universe that include Professor X, Mr. Fantastic, and Captain Carter. For fans of the Scarlet Witch, this may have been too much and the star reveals her own reaction to this.,Related: Is Scarlet Witch A Villain In The Comics?,In an interview with
Variety, Olsen breaks down Wanda’s murderous spree in the film. She reveals her character was actually originally supposed to kill more people. Olsen also reveals that she did have a hard time with it, as she questioned if Wanda was okay with killing people but tried looking at it through the point of view of the character. Olsen said:,Olsen’s reveal that the character was meant to kill more people may have been something that was changed during
Doctor Strange 2‘s extensive reshoots. Marvel Studios may have pulled back from Wanda’s brutality in an attempt to try and give her a redemption arc at the end of the film, where she sacrifices herself after realizing what she has become. This death is actually very similar to the death of Doc Ock in director Sam Raimi’s
Spider-Man 2 and the studio may have been worried if she murdered too many characters audiences may not have been able to come back from that and any future attempts with the character would be more difficult for audiences to buy as a hero.,It remains to be seen if this is the end of Wanda Maximoff in the MCU, as Olsen seems to hint that she is looking to step away for a while. Wanda’s turn in the film is likely the most controversial decision of the movie. Despite
WandaVision ending on a note where Wanda will atone for her actions and reflect on what she has done by the time
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness starts the character has become a full-blown villain. For a studio that was once too worried about how
Iron Man’s drinking problem would harm toy sales for
Iron Man 2, it shows how much the studio has loosened up to allow one of their star Avengers to become a supervillain.,Next: Did Marvel Really Just Kill Off That Important Doctor Strange Character?,Source: Variety
