THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYS WANDA MAXIMOFF IN THE MCU HIGHLIGHTED THE RELEVANCE OF HER CHARACTER TO DRIVE FEMINISM
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a huge influence on many people in recent years. The characters in each of the films inspire millions of fans with their values and actions, something that also happened with the recent WandaVision series.
The story of Wanda Maximoff and Vision, living in a city isolated from reality, left a great teaching for all who saw it. At the same time, the character of Elizabeth Olsen became a symbol of empowerment for feminism.
In WandaVision we got to see a very different look of the Scarlet Witch. The woman afraid to show herself as she is in the Avengers saga, she unleashed her full potential in the Disney + series, not only in terms of superpowers, but also her person per se of her.
That is why Elizabet Olsen is proud of her character and considers it fitting that witches are now feminist icons, something that her setmate Kathryn Hahn endorsed.
WANDAVISION DEFINED A DIFFERENT WORLD FOR THE SCARLET WITCH
In an interview for Glamor magazine, Elizabeth Olsen highlighted the great reception she had as Scarlet Witch and celebrated the fact that modern witches are becoming relevant to the empowerment of women. Something that she concluded thanks to the actress who gave life to Agatha Harkness.
‘It was amazing working with Kathryn Hahn. She always said, ‘We are witches. Isn’t that wonderful? We are these powerful women that men feared and had to murder because they are so afraid of our power and all the mystery that being a woman involves. ‘ So taking over witches again is really fun, ‘declared the WandaVision protagonist.
The role of witches in the MCU is definitely something we haven’t seen in the same way in any other series or movie. WandaVision taught us many things about Scarlet Witch, but at the same time it let us discover another side of Elizabeth Olsen.
