Elizabeth Olsen Wants To Do More Indie Movies
Elizabeth Olsen sat down with Entertainment Weekly and talked about the hardest part of working with Marvel Studios. She said:
“It is definitely what I work around. The thing that’s been a little hard for me is I would really love to do a four-week independent film, like where there’s a beginning and an end,” Olsen began. “With Sorry For Your Loss, even though I have loved that experience…Being a producer on that show, that’s also like a 10-month job. So, between Marvel and that, it’s been really hard to schedule in the little art films that I would love to be finding time to do. But, I literally don’t have time to do them. So, there is a piece of me that’s really missing that. And there’s a piece of me that really wants to get back into theater.”
Elizabeth Olsen isn’t the first Marvel star to be making these kind of complaints. Previously, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans made comments which alluded to the fact that it was time for them to leave the Marvel Cinematic Universe and pursue other projects.
