Without Elizabeth Olsen, this key moment in the WandaVision series would never have existed!
It’s not just Paul Bettany who likes to tell stories about the filming of WandaVision, his co-star Elizabeth Olsen has things to say as well. Indeed, the actress who plays Wanda Maximoff – officially Scarlet Witch in the series – revealed during an interview given last January for the Still Watching podcast of Vanity Fair how much she had been eager to put on the famous Scarlet Witch costume. But not the one specially designed for the needs of the Marvel Studios show, no. On the contrary, Elizabeth Olsen was in a hurry to be able to pay homage to her character by wearing her old costume, the old school version that appeared in the comics of the 70s.
Moreover, the young woman was so enthusiastic about the idea of putting on the famous Scarlet Witch combination, that she even had to fight with the production – who was not convinced – to win her case. “We were about to turn the Halloween episode and tried to imagine how we would make a nod to the character and it did not start with the classic costume Scarlet Witch. I had to fight for it. I was like: No, we have to go all out. It was the best thing to do. Paul Bettany does it, I do it. And it’s not just a flash, I wore the costume for a very long time. It was so much fun, I loved it. It was the perfect way to wear this costume, Moreover, Elizabeth Olsen then concluded by stressing that she had asked the production to “make the headdress as massive as possible “.
