For the actress, “smearing the reputation of Marvel harms the hundreds of very talented people on the team”.
Elizabeth Olsen – the MCU’s Scarlet Witch – is currently playing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. star of the series Wanda Visionshe explains to The Independent that she didn’t think so many Marvel projects would open up to her: ” I had signed for only 2 films, so it’s always a surprise when people call me! I felt so lucky when they offered me to do Wanda Vision ! […] But it was also a lot of pressure because this is the MCU’s first series.

Pressure that is justified by the many criticisms of which Marvel films (and superheroes in general) are the subject. Especially those who share Martin Scorsese’s opinion: ” It’s not cinema “. For the actress, it’s a lack of respect for the technical teams: ” I’m not saying that we make auteur films, but this kind of criticism hurts our team, and that bothers me. There are some of the most incredible decorators, costume designers, cameramen and that amounts to devaluing their work. » She further explains: From an actress point of view, I understand, it’s not the same kind of performance at all. But I don’t believe smearing Marvel’s reputation is respectful of the hundreds of talented people who make up the tech team. And that’s why it makes me irritable. »
