Elizabeth Olsen & Tom Holland Tease A Marvel Team-Up:
The MCU is expanding its reach through a string of series exclusively for Disney+. But aside from that, the franchise itself is getting bigger as Marvel Studios properly tackles the multiverse. We also got to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduces the concept in Doctor Strange and Ant-Man, and sure a lot of it in Avengers: Endgame. And it is not going to be any different in Spider-Man 3 as well, at least so we hope.
As part of this new endeavor, there are upcoming projects expected to further explore the concept such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man 3. If the general assumption comes to fruition, WandaVision will as well. Given these connections, we connect the dots while embracing Doctor Strange’s role in Spider-Man 3, there have been obvious questions of whether Wanda, Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, will be seen in Spider-Man 3 as well or not.
When asked this question during a recent interview with Capital FM, Olsen didn’t deny the possibility, although she admits she’s unaware of some of the details. In any case, if “everyone’s” in Spider-Man 3, then Olsen’s assuming she’ll be in it, too. Olsen said, “I assume you might [see Scarlet Witch] if everyone’s in it, but I haven’t shown up to that party quite yet, I don’t think.” Perhaps it won’t be a prominent role, but considering how things are shaping up in the MCU, Strange may be the common denominator for all these multiverse-centric projects, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness functioning as the culminating story.
In 2018, just before the first reports that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was developing shows for Disney’s up and coming Disney+ (back then), Olsen said she “want[s] to play” with Spider-Man. The heroes appeared together, albeit separately, in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, and would briefly cross paths during the climactic battle against Thanos (Josh Brolin) in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. “I kind of want to play with Spider-Man. He’s cute,” Olsen said when asked to name her most-wished-for superhero crossover at ACE Comic Con in June 2018. “He’s really funny, I think Holland’s killing it. I think he’s so, so funny.”
“I think the WandaVision show looks really cool. I don’t really know what it’s about and it looks very stylistic, it almost looks like a bit of a sitcom with the way they’ve shot it. I don’t really understand what is going on but it looks really cool,” Holland told MTV in February 2020. “Paul and Elizabeth are like two of the nicest people I know and I would love to work with them some more and get to know them a little bit better.” Holland added: “So if I could put Spider-Man in the WandaVision show, that’d be great, Kevin Feige. So if you want to do that, you know my number.”
The most unique selling point of the film as of now is the return of many characters from Spider-Man previous films, with characters hailing from the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here’s a list of confirmed and possible names that will be coming to play their role in Spider-Man 3 – Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man, Jamie Foxx’s Electro, Dr. Alfred Molina’s Dr. Octopus, and the biggest crossover with confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and Charlie Cox’s Daredevil.
