Elizabeth Olsen, who co-stars in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has yet to see the movie, despite it earning well over $950 million at the global box office. The actress admitted on The Tonight Show that she missed the premiere of the film due to a cold and that the watermarked screener Disney gave her as a backup was just too “distracting.”
“I’m not one of those [actors who doesn’t watch her own movies],” Olsen said. “I’m one of those people who likes to study something so I can figure out how to make it better. But I had a cold when we had the premiere and I didn’t want to sit through it. And so I asked them to send a copy so I could watch it, and it had my name on it and it had the time that I was watching it, and I didn’t want to watch it like that.”
“My name was on it and the exact time and date,” Olsen continued. “It’s just distracting.”
Jimmy Fallon, presenter of The Tonight Show, stated that Marvel screeners are marked with watermarks “in case you sell it illegally,” to which Olsen replied, “How do you even do that? Who do you even send it to? How do you even record it on a computer?”
The actress doesn’t know what the MCU has in store for her in the future. At the conclusion of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Scarlet Witch’s fate remained a mystery. Agatha Harkness will have a spinoff in the character’s Disney+ series WandaVision, while speculation about a Scarlet Witch standalone project is still rife.
“I would love to be a part of both of those,” Olsen shared on The View. “No one tells me anything, and I’m not even hiding a secret, because I’m bad at that. I know nothing about my future…Keep spreading rumors and maybe they’ll hire me again.”
If Olsen wants to watch Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the comic book blockbuster is currently available to stream on Disney+.
