As we’ve seen in the trailers and promotional material, Marvel’s WandaVision is set to feature comic book accurate versions of both the Scarlet Witch and the Vision’s classic costumes as Westview celebrates Halloween, and speaking to Vanity Fair, actress Elizabeth Olsen has revealed that she “fought” for a faithful version, headpiece and all.
“I was so excited,” said Olsen. “We have a Halloween episode and they were trying to figure out how big of a nod to the character we were going to do and it did start off with the classic Scarlet Witch costume. It was kind of like a gypsy thing that has to wear a headband and I, like, fought for it. I was like ’No, we have to go full into it…this is like the greatest thing, if [Paul Bettany’s] doing it [for Vision], I’m doing it.”
It seems likely that the Halloween costume won’t be influencing Wanda’s wardrobe going forward but who knows, perhaps we’ll see her dusting off the headpiece later in the season or for during next outing in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness…
Marvel Studios’ captivating new series WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany and marks the first series from Marvel Studios streaming exclusively on Disney+. The series is a blend of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff and Vision—two super-powered beings living idealized suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
WandaVision features a cast that includes Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (Vision), Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis), Randall Park (Agent Jimmy Woo), Teyonah Parris (Empire) as Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn (Bad Moms) as Agnes.
