With her role as Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Elizabeth Olsen revealed that she wanted to say the iconic lines of the character from the comics in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Olsen, in an interview with HeyUGuys, stated that there is a chance of her saying Wanda Maximoff’s iconic words, “No more mutants.” She said, “I would love to be able to say [“No More Mutants”] in some capacity, to make it work for the MCU.”
The 33-year-old actress added that she isn’t aware of Marvel Studios’ moves; however, the decision to include Wanda’s line at some point “is not anyone’s control but [Marvel Studios President] Kevin Feige.”
Scarlet Witch said “no more mutants” during the House of M limited series in 2005, which occurred in an alternate reality of Wanda’s making. Devastated following her father Magneto’s murder of her brother Quicksilver, Wanda blamed Magneto’s mutant supremacy mania.
While Marvel has not yet merged the X-Men franchise’s world of mutants into the official MCU canon, that could happen soon. Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier in Fox’s X-Men films will offer a cameo in the new installation of Doctor Strange, prompting speculations that Professor X will make a comeback.
No official confirmation has been made of Stewart’s reprisal of the role. But fans quickly point out easter eggs in the film trailer, like Xavier’s yellow hover chair from the 90s X-Men comics and animated series.
Aside from Xavier, the Multiverse of Madness might be a haven for some well-known characters from the MCU.
The film will feature Olsen, Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. It is produced by Marvel Studios, directed by Sam Raimi, and written by Michael Waldron.
It follows Strange and his allies traveling throughout the multiverse to face a mysterious new villain.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to hit the theaters on May 6.
