Elizabeth Olsen Really Wants to Bring One Iconic X-Men Quote to Life

Fans of WandaVision have been patiently waiting to see the next chapter in the Scarlet Witch’s story, and that day is almost here. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives next week, and in it, Elizabeth Olsen will be returning to the MCU fold. But what is she up to this time around? Well, her behavior certainly isn’t getting any better.

Trailers for the project have revealed how Wanda is still very much under the influence of the Darkhold. Not only that, but she’s seemingly hellbent on finding her lost children.

Scarlet Witch will undoubtedly have plenty to do within the story of Multiverse of Madness, much of it likely going against the good of all reality.

Ahead of the film’s release, the star behind one of the world’s strongest beings has revealed one iconic Marvel line she hopes to one day say: “No more Mutants.”

Sorry, X-Men.

Olsen Wants To Smite X-Men

In an interview with HeyUGuys, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness actress Elizabeth Olsen was asked if she’d ever want to utter the fateful words “no more mutants.” 

In response, Olsen responded that she “would love to be able to say them in some capacity to make it work for the MCU:”

“Yes, I mean, I hope so… I’m excited for all the crossovers in the future. I do think this film opens up lots of opportunities with the Multiverse. But yeah, the immortal words are [“no more mutants”]… I mean… I would love to be able to say them in some capacity to make it work for the MCU. Again, I never know what we’re doing next, so I’m always just kind of like in these interviews, just saying whatever sounds cool to me as well. But yeah, it’s not in anyone’s control besides Kevin Feige.”

Let Fans Have the Mutants First

Olsen is certainly getting ahead of herself now, isn’t she? Marvel should probably let there be X-Men in the first place.

But, when the time comes, and the X-Gene is commonplace in the MCU, will Scarlet Witch still be in a place to deliver the iconic line? It’s hard to imagine the character being posed as the unstable bad guy for that long—in fact, it’s hard to imagine it going on any longer than Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. That is, assuming she makes it through the movie in the first place.

Hopefully, she does just that by the time the credits roll. It would be quite a waste to get Wanda to the power levels, and lore-importance, that she’s at now only to take her off the board entirely.

After all, MCU fans still need to meet her children, who go on to become Young Avengers.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releases on May 6.
