In his recent Actors on Actors interview for Variety, Elizabeth Olsen has revealed that she has finished filming her role in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. During the interview with fellow actor Kaley Cuoco, Olsen corrected the The Big Bang Theory star when she mentioned that she was currently shooting the movie. “I finished Doctor Strange 2“Olsen said, before discussing the busy and tight schedule between WandaVision and the next one MCU movie.
“This is what I was filming in the UK”, Elizabeth olsen mentionned. “So I have finished WandaVision. It was in October. We had two months during the pandemic. Luckily, even though we shot in Atlanta and then moved to LA, we had a lot of the same crew so the mask wasn’t as awkward. There is always a fun spirit and I think we were so excited to finish the show and I think we had been working on it for about five months already. It was just a long job. So we were really looking forward to completing it and I finished in October on a Wednesday and they flew me to London on a Friday. I’ve been doing the same character for almost two years. “
While this may seem like a big request for Olsen, in the grand scheme of things tight timing can only help improve his performance in Doctor Strange’s second solo film, especially given the recent comments made. WandaVision and Doctor Strange 2 writer Michael Waldron regarding the journey that Wanda will continue in the film.
“We had access to the scripts and then to the cuts [of WandaVision]”, commented Waldron.” I have become good friends with Jac Schaeffer, editor-in-chief of WandaVision, while I was writing Loki. She and I became good friends, because we were kind of in the same boat and everything. She’s awesome and brilliant and she’s just someone I really admire. It was nice knowing someone we could empathize with together for our crazy jobs. “
“I had the benefit of being able to call Jac up and talk to her about Wanda’s character and everything, because it was really important to me that I do what she did with Wanda as a character,” continued the writer. “And also, with Lizzie [Olsen], who is a friend of mine. I really worked with her and made sure, ‘Okay, you just did this incredibly intimate show about this character who grew her so much. Let’s make sure we do justice and tell a fulfilling next chapter in this story. ‘”
While we still have a bit of a wait for how Wanda’s story connects to the Sorcerer Supreme, there’s a lot going on in the MCU while we wait to keep fans busy. Loki is currently streaming on Disney +, giving fans intriguing details about the multiverse, time travel and more, which will have an important connection with Doctor Strange 2, and Black Widow is just a month away from bringing MCU films return to the big screen for the first time since 2019 Spider-Man: Far From Home. With trailers already released for Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings and The Eternals, and the assumption that the long-awaited Spider-Man: No Path Home the trailer is fast approaching, the nine month wait until Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness March 25, 2022.
