    Why Did Elizabeth Olsen Think ‘WandaVision’ Was Risky ?

    Regardless of consensus about the current state of MCU, the studio took a big creative swing with ‘WandaVision.’ The show expands upon the grief of Scarlett Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) as she tries to come to terms with Vision’s death. The show’s sitcom route seemed unusual initially, but it unfolded into a more complex story.

    Elizabeth Olsen got to portray Scarlett Witch in more MCU movies. However, her work in ‘WandaVision’ is the best portrayal of the character. But long before the praise, there was a seed of doubt in her mind that said the show wouldn’t work. It was a sentiment also shared by her co-star Paul Bettany at the time.

While she had a wonderful time working on the show, she doubted its success.

    Elizabeth Olsen told the host about her and her co-star Paul Bettany’s about being overshadowed by the global aspect of ‘The Falcon And The Winter Soldier,’ saying, “We just felt like, Paul [Bettany] kept calling us the forgotten cousin to the Marvel Universe. He just felt like we were some annoying cousin that people just, like, threw in the corner.”
