Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlett Witch character is getting her own movie, according to My Time to Shine Hello.
The “WandaVision” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” character will also allegedly front a film adaptation of “The Children’s Crusade”. In the comic book arc, the Young Avengers (mostly Wiccan and Speed) are on their hunt for the Scarlet Witch.
Meanwhile, the Scarlett Witch taps into her nasty side as the villain of the aforesaid “Doctor Strange” sequel this May.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress compared the film to a ‘scary’ “Indiana Jones” movie.
“I think it’s scarier than Indiana Jones,” Olsen began. “I think it definitely feels more Sam Raimi than that. So maybe that was the goal, but it definitely became something darker I think.” She clarified, “Yea, not like [Raimi’s] western [stuff]… Yes, the horror genre feeling of constant fear and thrill and misleads and playing with camera, playing with how the perspective of the depth of field in order to make the audience feel more anxious… It’s more… I think it’s more than like a glossy Indiana Jones movie. Which I love Indiana Jones, but I feel like it has a darker thing going on.”
