Elizabeth Olsen is the latest celebrity to take on BuzzFeed’s Puppy Interview challenge. Even though the Marvel Cinematic Universe star admits that she’s not a “dog person,” Olsen manages to answer some top fan questions while entertaining the rambunctious pups.
Fans know her best as Wanda Maximoff, AKA The Scarlet Witch, most recently in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). Here’s the Marvel-specific insight she gave about her behind-the-scene favorites and her take on Wanda’s character, based on BuzzFeed‘s sourced questions. All while playing with puppies of course!
Episode Eight of WandaVision was a fan favorite. What was your favorite moment to film from that episode?
I think my favorite was us being in Agatha’s little dungeon. Kathryn [Hahn] and I had to really invent some stuff there and it was a pretty beautiful set. So I think that me, like hanging on a wire, being tortured by her, was my favorite part of that episode.
Do you have a favorite moment filming with Paul Bettany during WandaVision?
Elizabeth answers while the squeaky toy gets the puppies riled up.
Yeah, I think the magic show! He was fabulous with that, and I just really got to watch him be great, and you know to be a little showgirl.
Which Marvel character would you love to see Wanda interact with in the future?
The new girl I really think is funny – Ms. Marvel. Yea, I think she’s very cute and endearing and enjoyable. So I would say her.
Which moment from Multiverse of Madness was the most shocking when you read it for the first time?
Laughing, Olsen explains,
I was shocked the moment they told me what it was about. I was shocked at the moment they said, “You’re the villain!” No one told me until right before we shot it, so that was shocking.
Was it difficult playing Wanda as a villain?
No, but I think my goal was to make sure that nothing seemed like a repeated arc. I try really hard not to make it repetitive because I think that might not be fun for fans.
Throughout the rest of the video, she comments on her newest role in the true-crime story Love & Death, her friendship with Aubrey Plaza, and presenting at the Oscars with fan-favorite Pedro Pascal.
