Speculation is rife among fans asking, “Is Elizabeth Olsen leaving Marvel?” causing a certain level of concern. This comes after her character was notably absent from the cover of an upcoming official Marvel Studios publication, sparking rumors that Olsen may be stepping away from her role as Wanda. Here’s what you should know about Elizabeth Olsen’s current status as the Scarlet Witch.
Is Elizabeth Olsen Leaving Marvel?
The answer is no, Elizabeth Olsen is not leaving Marvel.
Although she’s announced a hiatus from her role as Wanda, following two years of filming and an additional year marketing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, she hasn’t explicitly said she’s exiting Marvel. Olsen has expressed her interest in delving into the X-Men saga within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
The speculation regarding her potential exit was fueled by her character Wanda being replaced by Loki and Sylvie on the cover of the forthcoming book, The Marvel Cinematic Universe: An Official Timeline. This move was likely motivated more by the marketing appeal of Loki as a fan favorite, rather than an indicator of Olsen’s departure from the franchise.
Will Elizabeth Olsen Return as Wanda Maximoff?
It is widely anticipated that Elizabeth Olsen, one of the most beautiful women in the MCU, will reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch. Given the expansive nature of the MCU, particularly its current exploration of the multiverse, Olsen’s return—whether as a main character or in a guest appearance—wouldn’t be entirely unexpected.
She might be seen as a new variant of the character or continue as the version that survived the events of the Multiverse of Madness. Neither Olsen nor Disney have made official statements indicating a parting of ways. Therefore, it remains highly probable that Olsen will continue to portray Wanda in future Marvel productions involving the Scarlet Witch.
