Is Elizabeth Olsen done with Marvel?

Is Elizabeth Olsen done with Marvel? Wanda Maximoff is undoubtedly one of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, played by Elizabeth Olsen since her debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel did a lots of experiments with this character, first they have shown the character of Wanda as a average superhero character in the movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, then we have seen some potential of her power in Avengers: Endgame when she lifted a thanos in the air and broke his sword. And in the WandaVision series and most importantly in Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness we have seen her true potential and she proved in the movie that how much powerful she is.

After all this appearances of Wanda Maximoff, specially after Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness, fans are eagerly waiting for her next appearance in MCU. But in a recent interview with Olsen has some disheartening updates for fans.

According to The Direct, Elizabeth Olsen while speaking to Meghann Fahy in Variety’s Actors on Actors conversation explained why she was not eager to return to Marvel as Wanda Maximoff. When asked if Olsen missed playing the role of Wanda, she without any hesitation denied it because she was really proud of what she achieved as Wanda. “No, I don’t. I think it’s been almost ten years of playing her. And I’ve loved it. And I think the reason why l am not calling Kevin Feige everyday with ideas is because I’m really proud of what we were able to do,” said Olsen.

She added that she was particularly proud of WandaVision because of what a surprising opportunity it turned out to be. She also reflected on the Scarlet Witch’s arc, as well as how she’s moving forward in her own career, commenting “If someone were to tell me that I’m fired from Marvel movies, I will feel proud of what we made. And I really am just trying to figure out how to load up other films and characters, so it becomes less about the Marvel of it all.”

Whatever she said in the last sentence, it feels like Elizabeth Olsen is no more interested in playing Wanda’s character and she wants to move out of the MCU & play some different characters in different movies out of the MCU.
She also spoke about the character in such a reflective way that it has led fans to speculate about whether she might be done playing Wanda.

What do you think on this? Will we see Wanda’s character in future MCU projects?
