Elizabeth Olsen Wants to Visit the House of M

Warning: The second section of this article contains a spoiler for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

In an interview with HeyUGuys, Elizabeth Olsen, the co-star of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe that was released exclusively to movie theaters on May 6, 2022, said she would love to deliver one of the most iconic lines ever uttered by the Scarlet Witch. In Wanda Maximoff’s almost-six-decade history at Marvel Comics, the character has been through a lot, going back to the Salem Witch trials, marrying Dr. Doom against her will (well, doing lots of things against her will), and going toe-to-toe with the JLA. However, she is most infamously remembered for saying the words that kicked off the House of M event and decades of Marvel Comics storylines: “No more mutants.”

Wanda uttered the iconic line in House of M (2005) #5 by Brian Michael Bendis, Olivier Coipel, John Dell, Scott Hanna, Tim Townsend, Frank D’Armata, Paul Mounts, Chris Eliopoulos, and Esad Ribic. In that issue, Wanda uttered the words “no more mutants,” decimating the mutant population and leading to many ongoing plotlines in the panels of Marvel Comics (including 2010’s Young Avengers: Children’s Crusade, the 2015 Scarlet Witch solo series, and the 2020 book X-Men: The Trial of Magneto).

House of M’s Impact on the MCU

The House of M storyline has also had a heavily visual influence on Wanda’s appearances, especially those in WandaVision and Multiverse of Madness. The “cubing” that occurred as Wanda warped reality in the House of M issues heavily influenced the appearance of the Scarlet Witch’s magic as she de-hexed Westview, New Jersey in the season finale of WandaVision, and as Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) falls through several multiverses in one of the shots included in the trailer, he seems to be undergoing the same fate.

The House of M storyline also included a significant role for the X-Men’s head boss in charge, Charles Xavier (the superhero team’s version of Kevin Feige), played in the 2000-era mutant movies by Sir Patrick Stewart. The Star Trek: Picard actor returned for Doctor Strange 2 for a cameo appearance in a comic book accurate hovering yellow wheelchair as part of Earth-838’s Illuminati, and even played a similar role in the film as he does in the House of M comics.

Olsen first appeared in the role in the mid-credits sequence for 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier before being fully introduced in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. After playing a significant role in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, and 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, she went on to headline the first MCU streaming series on Disney+, WandaVision, which saw her achieve her apotheosis as the Scarlet Witch.

Could the House of M storyline and those stemming from it be in the cards for future entries in Phase Four of the MCU and beyond? Olsen says that while she would love to see it happen, it’s all in the hands of the Marvel Studio’s boss. “I never know what we’re doing next,” Olsen said. “It’s not in anyone’s control besides Kevin Feige.”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently playing in theaters, and the complete first season of WandaVision is available for streaming on Disney+.
