Elizabeth Olsen & Kathryn Hahn’s WandaVision finale battle wins Best Fight at the MTV Awards and they show what it was really like to film it.
Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn demonstrate what it’s like filming Scarlet Witch and Agatha Harkness’ fight in WandaVision. Marvel Studios’ inaugural Disney+ series kept viewers engaged and immersed for nine weeks. It was like nothing that had come in the MCU before, as it put star-crossed lovers Wanda and Vision in a sitcom setting as they tried to live an ideal suburbia life in Westview. But while both Olsen and Paul Bettany were expectedly great in their roles, Hahn was the show’s ultimate scene-stealer.
After a mystery-ridden run, WandaVision revealed that the nosy neighbor, Agnes, was indeed the villain of the narrative. This resulted in a one-on-one battle in the WandaVision finale as both witches try to outdo the other. But as cool as it was during the final edit of the episode, without the VFX editors and stunt actors who worked on the unique action scene, it wouldn’t look as engaging and impressive as it did. As for Olsen and Hahn, they show what it was like for them to shoot their battle and it’s really goofy and quite awkward.
WandaVision finale’s battle between the witches won this year’s Best Fight at the MTV Movie and TV Awards, and both actresses were in attendance to accept the accolade. During their acceptance speech, Olsen and Hahn paid tribute to their stunt team, revealing what they looked like filming their fight scenes without their doubles. Watch the full clip below:
Ever since Wanda’s introduction in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Olsen has been demonstrating how she would feel fight scenes for her character whose power is entirely VFX-generated. While Doctor Strange also exists in the MCU and technically spearheads the magical aspect of the franchise, Scarlet Witch hasn’t really fought a fellow witch until WandaVision introduced Agatha Harkness. Granted that the revelation about her true identity had long been speculated, it didn’t take away from the actual plot twist, especially with the way it was executed at the end of episode 7. The way Hahn played the character also significantly made it better, effectively setting up the show’s final two outings with the two witches.
If there’s any other takeaway from the aforementioned clip, it’s that Olsen and Hahn have really great chemistry. Marvel Studios went the unorthodox route and kept Agatha alive at the end of WandaVision instead of killing her, indicating that there’s a future for her in the MCU. At this point, it’s uncertain where she can pop up next but between her current fate and the way Hahn quickly became a Marvel favorite, it’s safe to say that she will eventually appear in future projects. Olsen, on the other hand, is set to reprise Wanda in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
