Why Elizabeth Olsen is excited to bring Scarlet Witch on Disney+ with WandaVision

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Elizabeth Olsen talked about her upcoming Disney+ series. She said that WandaVision is such an incredible concept. The actor mentioned that it is the first time they get to understand her as the Scarlet Witch that she is in the comics, and that is exciting for her because she has not yet been able to give the character that time onscreen. She stated that it is going to be fun. Olsen asserted that Wanda Maximoff has always been a representation of mental health and illness in the comic book series, and her major role in handling that stigma within Marvel.
