Elisabeth Olsen claims Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange sequel is more frightening than Indiana Jones films, after making comparisons using the assistance of Michael Waldron as a screenwriter.
Elisabeth Olsen said that Doctor Strange inside the Multiverse of Madness may be scarier than Indiana Jones. Following her WandaVision-inspired flip on Disney+, Olsen will return as Scarlet Witch in the new film. Following setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2016, the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange is now ready for release in theaters on March 20, 2022.
Olsen’s comments were directed at Michael Waldron (screenwriter of the Doctor Strange 2nd sequel), in comparison to Stephen Strange to Anthony Bourdain to Indiana Jones. Following appearances in Thor: Ragnarok (Avengers: Infinity War), and Avengers: Endgame the individual who performed using Benedict Cumberbatch’s aid will be back in the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Doctor Strange 2 Is Scarier Than Indiana Jones, Says Elizabeth Olsen
Talking to Vanity Fair Olsen addressed Michael Waldron’s comments with the aid using insisting that the brand new Doctor Strange “may be greater than a smooth Indiana Jones films.” She also said that she was more in line with Sam Raimi’s directorial style, having directed the Tobey Maguire Spi-Man trilogy which is darker than the MCU version starring Tom Holland.
See Olsen’s comments below. I think it is scarier than Indiana Jones. It feels more like Sam Raimi than it does. Perhaps that is the goal. But it seems like it has evolved into something darker. It is not the same as [Raimi]’s] western horror-style feeling of constant worry and thrill misleads, and gambling with the camera to increase the area’s intensity in an attempt to make the target audience experience greater anxiety. I think it is more than a smooth Indiana Jones movie.
While I love Indiana Jones’s music, I feel it has a darker side. The description Olsen gives of the second Doctor Strange film suggests that Sam Raimi is taking the movie in a different direction than Waldron’s script.
This seems unsurprising considering the man who made the Evil Dead movies, and his horror film roots will certainly guide the fashion for the new Doctor Strange.
Waldron is the screenwriter for Rick, Morty, and the brand-new Disney+ Loki series. Waldron’s fashion is more comical and stylish than any of the MCU predecessors. According to Olsen’s interview, it seems like the last movie could have been more traumatic and terrifying than the Indiana Jones film Waldron mentions as an inspiration.
