Tom Holland is a big fan of Elizabeth Olsen’s show ‘WandaVision’

WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on Jan. 15. The series follows Wanda and Vision (Paul Bettany) after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Each episode highlights a different era of sitcoms while furthering the plot of the MCU.

In an interview with Collider, Holland revealed that he is a huge fan of the show. Holland is currently filming the third Spider-Man installment in the MCU, and he admitted that it is hard for him to resist getting spoilers for the show.

“I am obsessed with WandaVision. It’s so difficult because obviously I’m on a Marvel set at the moment. So all of the producers are there, and I could just go up to Kevin Feige and be like, ‘So what happens? What’s going on?’ It’s really difficult for me to not ask the questions I want the answers to, but I’m loving it,” he said.

The actor added, “And I think, honestly, it’s for me, my favorite Marvel thing I’ve seen… So I’m loving it. I’m absolutely loving it.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming premiered in 2017. While promoting the movie, Holland participated in a video segment for British GQ‘s YouTube channel. For the video, Holland pulled questions out of a hat and gave spur-of-the-moment answers.

“If you could pick any love interest from the Marvel universe for Spider-Man, who would it be?” Holland read for the last question.

Holland thought about it for a moment and then answered Scarlet Witch, admitting that he finds Olsen to be attractive.

“I think Scarlet Witch is pretty hot, you know? I think Elizabeth Olsen is super hot,” he said. “And really nice as well. She was really nice to me at the premiere. So yeah, probably Scarlet Witch.”
