Doctor Strange 2: why Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) still hasn’t seen the Marvel movie

Headliner of Doctor Strange 2, Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) still hasn’t seen Multiverse of Madness. And for an amazing reason…

He’s one of the headliners of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and yet she still hasn’t seen him.

Although she went to the preview, Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch, did not watch the film but for a very specific reason. She explained on “The Tonight Show” that she had a cold. Even though she missed the preview, Elizabeth Olsen had other options for watching Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, including one that didn’t work for her.

Elizabeth Olsen didn’t want a watermarked file

The actress still wanted to see Doctor Strange 2 and so she asked Disney for a file, but she was confronted with a characteristic known to journalists who have access to film or series screeners for their work: the watermark. [un mot ou un texte – en général le nom de la personne à qui le fichier a été envoyé – sous forme d’un filigrane qui apparaît sur le fichier pour éviter les fuites et la diffusion illégale, ndlr].

And that bothered the actress who found it too “distracting” :

“I’m not one of those [acteurs et actrices qui ne regardent pas ses propres films]. I’m one of those people who likes to study something to find out how to improve it. But I had a cold when we were at the premiere and I didn’t want to stay. And so I asked them to send a copy so I could watch the movie and it had my name on it but also the time I was watching it, and I didn’t want to see the movie like that.”

Scarlet Witch’s future remains unclear in the MCU, after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but it would be surprising if this iconic character didn’t return in other projects. Rumors point to the character appearing in Agatha: House of Harkness, the WandaVision spin-off centered around Kathryn Hahn’s character, or even a Scarlet Witch solo film.

For now, Elizabeth Olsen has no clear answer to provide, as she indicated on the show “Good Morning America” : “I would love to be part of these two projects. But nobody tells me anything, and I’m not even hiding a secret, because I’m bad at it. I don’t know anything about my future… Keep spreading rumors and maybe -maybe they’ll hire me again.”

If Scarlet Witch is to return, sooner or later Elizabeth Olsen will have to watch Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is now available on Disney+ in the United States. And the actress intends to see the Marvel film on the platform, according to her words.
