It's not a secret that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not every director's cup of tea. Many big names in Hollywood have expressed controversial opinions about the franchise based on the comics: from Francis Ford Coppola to Martin Scorsese. Even Alejandro González Iñárritu has made an entire movie exploring the temporary fame and mediocracy surrounding the superhero movies in Birdman: or the unexpected virtue of ignorance.
However, there are exceptions. Probably the spearhead of the moment for the Marvel team, Elizabeth Olsen has made some statement about this criticism: "I'm not saying we're making indie art films, but I just think it takes away from our crew, which bugs me," the 33-year-old actress 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, who also work on these projects".
Finally, she criticizes the other directors' digs, which make the Marvel movies seem like a lesser type of art.
Now Olsen is at her sixth collaboration with the MCU and is as excited to be part of another project as the first time. At the moment we can see her art in the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
