What was the experience of working with Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch?
She’s wonderful, she’s like a breath of fresh air. She is the true light and force of nature. She just gets on set and everyone gets in the mood. She doesn’t take this ability or herself seriously and yet when she does, she’s fascinating to watch. She is a good actress and a very good friend.
Sam Raimi has taken the reins of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. What is his favorite movie and why?
I watched the first Evil Dead trilogy and The Spider-Man and watched a few other movies of his, especially when he was attached to directing this movie. I thought he was a very obvious candidate for this kind of dark-toned, horror-worthy movie. He has shock horror and jump scares that Sam is a master of. Fans of his work will see many nostalgic moments relived in his methodology and execution. He’s a lovely man and it was a privilege to work with him, he makes a great first audience and it’s nice to be able to make him laugh.
