Elizabeth Olsen parodies Doctor Strange 2’s Black Bolt scene on The Tonight Show
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness allowed Elizabeth Olsen to fully dive into her villainous side as the Scarlet Witch wreaked havoc across multiple realities, primarily Earth-838. Part of his anger included the suppression of all Illuminati in this universe – a group that boasted of Anson Mount’s Black Bolt and John Krasinski’s Reed Richards.
This film brought some of the most brutal action of any PG-13 rated MCU film to date, much of which took place during the battle with the Illuminati. While she struggled harder to take down Maria Rambeau and Peggy Carter, before later engaging in more mental well-being with Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Wanda started with a quick 2-0 advantage at the headquarters of the Illuminati.
Before turning Mr. Fantastic into a pile of blue spaghetti, Wanda took out Anson Mount’s Black Bolt by removing his mouth from his face, causing him to scream in terror and blow his skull off. Now, that moment has returned to mainstream media thanks to Elizabeth Olsen’s latest talk show appearance, which saw her deliver one of her best lines. Doctor Strange 2.
Elizabeth Olsen opens up about Black Bolt’s death
In an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallonthe show’s TikTok channel shared a video of Jimmy Fallon and Elizabeth Olsen recreating a memorable moment from Marvel Studios Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Fallon praises Olsen for her performance as the Scarlet Witch before asking for a cough drop, noting how her mouth gets a little dry sometimes before the show. This leads to Olsen slowly transitioning into her Scarlet Witch role as she asks Fallon “What mouth? while her eyes glow red:
Fallon: “You know, my mouth gets so dry before the show.”
Olsen: “Which mouth?”
The camera then zooms in on Fallon, who is screaming as she realizes her mouth is completely gone.
This moment directly references the scene in Doctor Strange 2 when Wanda did the exact same thing to the Black Bolt of Anson Mount at Illuminati Headquarters. After dreaming in Earth-838 Wanda’s body, she confronted the Illuminati and took down Black Bolt as the first part of her rampage.

Tonight’s Show Pays Tribute to Doctor Strange 2 Death
The legend of the Scarlet Witch reached even more mythical heights in Doctor Strange 2 following his evolution to that status in all nine episodes Wanda Vision series on Disney+. Part of that was his brutality and ruthlessness in his quest to find a universe with his twins, eliminating anyone and everything that stood in his way.
Black Bolt’s death was one of the scariest moments in the film, not only for how visually disturbing it looked, but also for how easily Wanda removed the Inhuman King from the equation. Seeing Fallon and Olsen recreate that moment certainly brought back some chilling memories, but it also allowed them to bring some of the comedy Fallon is known for while revisiting Olsen’s work.
While whether or not Black Bolt will return to the MCU at some point in the future remains a mystery, Mount made his presence felt in this film, even factoring in his grizzly ending.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now streaming on Disney+.
