Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has hit theatres around the world and is making big numbers at the box office. Actor Elizabeth Olsen who plays Wanda Maximoff has now said that Marvel criticism makes her feisty.
While talking to The Independent, the actor said that when people make Marvel movies seem like lesser of an art, that frustrates her.
“I’m not saying we’re making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me. These are some of the most amazing set designers, costume designers, camera operators,” she said.
She added that diminishing the work done by these people with such criticism takes away from all the people who do award-winning films that also work on these projects.
The actor also said that from the point of an actor, she gets that the kind of performances that happen are different, however throwing Marvel movies under the bus takes away from hundreds of talented crew who work behind these movies.
Marvel movies have come under a lot of criticism from some of the biggest filmmakers in the world such as Martin Scorsese, Bong Joon-ho, Ken Loach, and Alejandro G. Iñárritu just to name a few.
Olsen became a part of the MCU with her role in Avengers: The Age of Ultron, where her character Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff goes head to head with the world’s mightiest heroes.
Her story got more attention after the release of the limited series, WandaVision, on Disney+ Hotstar. Wanda uses her powers on a whole town, to live a normal life with Vision. Doctor Strange 2 also focuses a lot on her story. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is available in theatres around the globe.
