Benedict Cumberbatch received a lot of praise Twitter amid early fan reactions to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but he wasn’t the star. Elizabeth Olsen is the clear champion of this film, with hundreds of tweets absolutely raving about her performance as Wanda Maximoff, aka The Scarlet Witch. “Best performance by Elizabeth Olsen imo, she’s the perfect Wanda.” @s4m_bld tweeted. “Elizabeth Olsen may have had the best performance of her career” @_pires_21 added. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is Olsen’s sixth MCU project and 19th overall, so these fan reactions are not to be taken lightly.
Those who were able to watch Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness also mentioned how Olsen should be recognized in the upcoming awards season. user @thoughtswithal tweeted: “Jokes aside… #MultiverseofMadness IS AMAZING. So many phenomenal moments, but what I want to say is, if this wasn’t a Marvel movie, Elizabeth Olsen would get the big nods. An absolutely INCREDIBLE achievement an incredible film.” The mirroring of that feeling was @itskevmosby, who wrote: “Elizabeth Olsen owned the #DoctorStrange in the Multiverse of Madness. Give her all the accolades already.” Her name may not be in the film’s title, but Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness really seems to be Wanda’s moment.
