WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen recently revealed that she will begin filming Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Madness of the Multiverse next month in the United Kingdom.

We’ve known since last year that WandaVision will directly tie-into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. WandaVision will hit Disney Plus early next year while filming for the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel headed by Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is already underway. There haven’t been too many casting announcements surrounding the Doctor Strange sequel, but we do know that Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch will factor into it in some way.

During a recent interview with Condé Nast Traveller, Elizabeth Olsen shared that she is currently in the process of moving back to the United Kingdom soon to film Doctor Strange in the Madness of the Multiverse. Based on these comments, it appears Olsen will be overseas for a few months, which means Scarlet Witch could have a much bigger role in the Doctor Strange sequel than some might’ve thought.

“I feel as if British people work to live – they don’t live to work, unlike in LA and New York. I am moving back soon to film the sequel to Doctor Strange, so I’ll be there for Christmas, just outside London. Even given the current circumstances, it will be a nice trip.”

Do you think Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch is the villain of Doctor Strange 2? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Here is the official synopsis for Elizabeth Olsen’s WandaVision:

Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.

Directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role.

WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney Plus in January 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on WandaVision, Doctor Strange in the Madness of the Multiverse, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
