Fan’s excitement surrounding Marvel Studios first Disney+ show, WandaVision, is certainly ramping as we inch closer to the show’s debut that is slated for January 15, 2021. While Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch is set for lead role in the multiverse-bending series, fans have been looking forward to her next role in the highly anticipated Doctor Strange sequel, Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Now, fans wondering when exactly the actress would begin filming her scenes for the film have found an answer through Empire Magazine’s feature piece on WandaVision.
In an excerpt extracted from Empire Magazine‘s feature story, the author notes that by the time the piece focused on WandaVision’s details was published (today), Olsen would be filming on the set of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in London. You can check out the excerpt down below.
“By the time you read this, Olsen will be in London shooting Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a sequel that, judging by the tittle, seems set to play a huge role in opening up the MCU to all kinds of different realities. And Wanda might be the key.”Empire Magazine on Elizabeth Olsen’s projected shooting schedule for Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Via Empire Magazine.
By now, it’s well known that the connective tissue between WandaVision and the Multiverse of Madness will be that the ramifications of the series’ plot will lead directly into the story of the Doctor Strange sequel.With Wanda jumping from WandaVision into Multiverse of Madness and Dr. Strange jumping from the Multiverse of Madness into the untitled third Spider-Man film, it will certainly be interesting to see who makes up the key players in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With the MCU in a bit of a gray area currently, fans are certainly excited to hear that Marvel Studios is moving forward despite the challenges faced from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
WandaVision will see Paul Bettany reprising the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returning to the role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. In addition, Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo (Ant-Man and The Wasp), Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis (Thor & Thor: The Dark World), and Teyonah Parris’ adult Monica Rambeau (Captain Marvel) are also expected to reprise their respective roles from previous MCU entires. The six episode series is described as a cross between an old-school-style-sitcom mixed with the action and storyline Marvel fans have become accustomed to seeing in theaters. WandaVision is currently scheduled to be released on January 15th, 2021 exclusively on Disney+.
In Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Benedict Cumberbatch returns as Dr. Stephen Strange and Elizabeth Olsen joins him as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. The events of the Disney+ series WandaVision will tie-in directly to the movie’s plot. Although original director Scott Derrickson left due to “creative differences”, Sam Raimi, original Spider-Man trilogy director, has been tapped to helm the film. Previously scheduled for May 7, 2021, Doctor Stephen Strange’s return has been pushed back almost a full year, hitting theaters on March 25, 2022.
