With her latest film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hitting theaters this weekend, Elizabeth Olsen stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show on Wednesday to discuss all things Marvel.
During her conversation with Fallon, Olsen, who reprises her role as Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, in the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strangeadmitted that a fear of failure prevents her from watching her projects at the premieres.
“I just decided I can not watch these Marvel movies at a premiere anymore,” Olsen shared. “Every time I watch it and I look around me and I like ‘Well, it’s our first flop’ – like, every time, I just think, ‘It’s our first flop.'”
“I saw ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and I looked around me and said, ‘Is it our first flop?’ I was like, ‘I do not know. I do not know about this one, ” Olsen said of the 2019 blockbuster film, which grossed nearly $ 3 billion at the worldwide box office to become the second-highest grossing movie of all-time.
Fallon made sure to remind Olsen that the reviews for the latest installment of Doctor Strange are overwhelmingly positive.
“It’s so not a flop,” Fallon said. “And you are getting great reviews, by the way. You just pop; you’re stunning in this thing. ”
Reviews aside, Doctor Strange 2 is projected to earn a monster opening at the box office. Deadline reports the Marvel movie is expected to tally a $ 200 million opening weekend, which would surpass The Batman‘s $ 172.5 million debut last month to become the biggest domestic box office opening of the calendar year.
