Here's What Elizabeth Olsen Really Thought of Doctor Strange 2 Script
It was a wild ride for everyone involved.
It's safe to say that Multiverse of Madness was a pretty crazy experience for both the creative team and the audience.
The movie highlighted all the problems the MCU has with consistency but was especially frustrating for fans of Wanda, whose character development from WandaVision was almost completely destroyed.
As frustrating as it is, these inconsistencies are the result of poor time management.
As Elizabeth Olsen revealed to Vanity Fair, the writers of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness didn't even have a chance to coordinate their script with WandaVision because it hadn't been released yet.
Furthermore, the change in director from Scott Derrickson to Sam Raimi brought even more changes to the already existing story, making the creation of the movie itself a multiverse of madness.
With draft after draft being changed and rewritten, it was incredibly difficult for everyone involved to follow the story and keep it cohesive.
Even Elizabeth Olsen, who had previously stayed on top of what was happening with her character, could not take it anymore.
"There's a point in making the movie where I just stopped reading drafts. I was just like, 'This is going to change again. Just keep me posted with the information I need and you guys fill in the blanks that you need. But I'll just keep my lane…'" the actress shared on the Happy Sad Confused podcast.
Elizabeth Olsen managed to put all the frustration and confusion aside and still delivered a top-notch performance.
As mixed as reviews of the final cut of the film were, her portrayal of Wanda's story was unquestionable, even if the story itself made little sense.
