Elizabeth Olsen Respond to Criticism of Marvel Movies

 Elizabeth Olsen is coming to the defense of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in which she plays the role of Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch.

Olsen, 33, spoke out in response to previous criticism directed at the MCU, most notably by the likes of Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, both of whom she said "make them [the Marvel movies] seem like a lesser type of art," per her interview with The Independent on Saturday.

"I'm not saying we're making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me," the actress, who currently stars in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, said. "These are some of the most amazing set designers, costume designers, camera operators – I feel diminishing them with that kind of criticism takes away from all the people who do award-winning films, that also work on these projects."

Olsen, who has also enjoyed time in the spotlight as an indie darling in films like 2011's Martha Marcy May Marlene, acknowledges that the MCU is populated by tentpole movies made to make money, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are bad films.

"From an actor's point of view, whatever, I get it; I totally understand that there's a different kind of performance that's happening," she said. "But I do think throwing Marvel under the bus takes away from the hundreds of very talented crew people. That's where I get a little feisty about that."

Olsen's comments come after Scorsese's highly publicized 2019 take on the MCU, in which he said in an interview with Empire via The Guardian that those movies "are not cinema" and likened them to "theme parks."
