Because she is afraid of failing, Elizabeth Olsen admits she does not see her Marvel films at premieres. 

Elizabeth Olsen appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show on Wednesday to talk all things Marvel, with her new feature Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hitting cinemas this weekend. 

During her interview with Fallon, Olsen, who reprises her role as Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, in the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange, said that she avoids viewing her films at premieres due to a fear of failure. 

“I simply realized I can’t see these Marvel movies at premieres any more,” Olsen said. “Every time I watch it and look around, I think, ‘Well, that’s our first flop.'” 

“When I watched ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ I glanced around and wondered, ‘Is this our first flop?'” ‘I don’t know,’ I said. ‘I’m not sure about this one,'” Olsen spoke about the 2019 blockbuster picture, which made almost $3 billion globally to become the second-highest earning film of all time. 

Fallon made sure to tell Olsen that the newest Doctor Strange chapter had received largely excellent reviews. 

“It’s definitely not a flop,” Fallon added. “By the way, you’re receiving rave reviews. You really stand out; you look great in this.”


Regardless of reviews, Doctor Strange 2 is expected to have a massive box office debut. According to Deadline, the Marvel picture is likely to gross $200 million in its opening weekend, surpassing The Batman’s $172.5 million debut last month to become the largest domestic box office opening of the calendar year.
