Elizabeth Olsen: "I gave up an important role because of the MARVEL contract"

Elizabeth Olsen since 2014 plays Wanda Maximoff in the cinecomic MARVEL. Elizabeth, these days at the cinema with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, during an interview with the New York Times, talked about the important roles she lost due to her contract with MARVEL Studios.

She said: "I started to feel frustrated. On the one hand, I had this job security, but I was losing roles that I felt more mine, more part of my being. And the further I got away from these roles, the less I was considered for others.

Losing the role of The Lobster was a sinking heart, but I had a contract with MARVEL that I couldn't get out of. It took me away from the physical ability to do certain jobs that I thought were more in line with the things I enjoyed.

I am as honest as possible. WandaVision? The power to choose to continue was important to me. We thought what we were doing was so strange and we didn't know if we had an audience for it, so there was some freedom. There was no pressure, no fear.

It was a really healthy experience. After Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a standalone film? I think I would, but it must be a really good story. I think these films are the best when it comes not to create content, but to have a very strong point of view, and not because you need to have a three-film plan."
