    This Old Interview Of Elizabeth Olsen Talking About Her Dream Wanda Storyline Is Making "WandaVision" Even Better

    "When she loses her mind, it's my favorite thing in the comics."

    🚨There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead for WandaVision and the Marvel comic books!🚨

    Oh, hello, it's me again, yelling about WandaVision. I know, this is like a daily thing now, but I can't help it.

    I'm just so excited to see these comic book storylines finally come to life AND I can't stop yelling about how I want to give Wanda Maximoff a hug.

    As I've mentioned before, I've been down a deep rabbit hole of watching anything and everything related to WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen, and Paul Bettany.

    So, in my searches, I stumbled across this 2015 Screen Rant interview with Elizabeth Olsen where she talks about how excited she is to bring Wanda Maximoff to life.

    And the interview is even better now then it was back then because Elizabeth talks about how her dream is to adapt storylines that are now seemingly playing out on WandaVision.

    While promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron, Elizabeth is asked what she would like to see Scarlet Witch do next, and this is when her little comic nerd comes out.

    "I mean, my favorite is House of M, but that would never happen. If she could have two fake babies and everyone tell her that they don't exist and for her to just go nuts, that would be unbelievable."

    She then goes on to say, "I don't think they're going to do that. It might be a little too dark for the Marvel universe."

    First of all, I absolutely cannot get over how excited Elizabeth is in this interview. Like, I am absolutely obsessed.

    Second, if you've watched WandaVision so far, it's becoming more and more likely that portions of House of M are being adapted, and I am literally a puddle of tears already.

    For those who don't know, House of M is an eight-issue comic book series that features Wanda/Scarlet Witch suffering a breakdown and trying to alter reality in order to save her lost children, Billy and Tommy.

    Magneto, Scarlet Witch's father, and her twin Quicksilver are heavily involved in the story, as are mutants in general.

    On WandaVision, we met Billy and Tommy during Episode 3 when Wanda gave birth, and they are surely going to play a massive role in Wanda and Vision's storyline in the remaining episodes.

    And in Episode 4, we also got a glimpse of how Wanda has created this reality in order to live a happy life, and it raised the question: How is Vision "alive" in Wanda's reality? And do Vision and the twins only exist when Wanda is thinking of them?

    So yes, it's sounding like Elizabeth Olsen has gotten her wish and House of M is happening on WandaVision.

    Also in House of M, Doctor Strange is heavily involved in Wanda's story. This is important to note because Elizabeth will be starring in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so WandaVision could be setting up her storyline in this movie.

    In the comics, Doctor Strange is present when Wanda gives birth and he tries to find the source of her madness later on. Spider-Man, Carol Danvers, Captain America, Hawkeye, and more characters we've come to love in the MCU also make major appearances in this comic series too.

    Basically, I am losing my mind over WandaVision on a daily basis and all I want to do is watch this show.
