During a recent Rolling Stone piece on WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen spoke about the evolution of Wanda’s accent and explained why her Sokovian accent will be back in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity:
“So that started with Civil war. The Russians [directors Anthony and Joseph Russo] He said, “Can you have a softer accent, because you’ve been to America and you must have been speaking more English.” So I was like, sure. I have to say that in [Wanda’s next appearance, in 2022’s] Dr strange [in the Multiverse of Madness], after the experience you have in WandaVision, returns to an accent that is more faithful. Now that I feel a little more owner of the character, I feel that she is withdrawing to have this more honest expression. The sitcom part was totally different, because he’s trying to hang on to the American sitcom world and do the best he can. “
