Elizabeth Olsen On What Kevin Feige Wanted Her To Say On WandaVision
Elizabeth Olsen commented on what Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige wanted her to reveal about WandaVision at San Diego Comic-Con.
Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 slate will include a handful of series for Disney+ that includes a show centered on Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch and The Vision. During an interview with BUILD Series, Elizabeth commented on how Kevin Feige’s WandaVision will explore why Wanda Maximoff is named the Scarlet Witch:
“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. 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.”
In fact, it was this very topic that Kevin Feige wanted Elizabeth Olsen to reveal during the Comic-Con presentation for WandaVision. However, Elizabeth Olsen recalled being so intimated by the comic-con crowd size that she messed up the details Kevin Feige hoped she would reveal:
“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.’ 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. I totally blew it.”
