In an exclusive interview with Looper, Matt Shakman shared that he’s been a huge fan — both personally and professionally — of Olsen and Bettany for a long time, so he knew going into the series that both actors could be funny. What made things unique for this particular comedy, though, was series creator Jac Schaeffer’s mixture of time periods that broaden the landscape for Olsen and Bettany’s comedic performances.

“They’re amazing. They can do anything. I knew they were funny. I knew they could do lots of different things, but what we were asking them to do is something no one had ever asked them to do before — and probably won’t ever ask them to do again — which is to do these bizarre, different period styles,” Shakman shared with Looper.

The director noted that since both Olsen and Bettany have an incredible work ethic and are geniuses at what they do, he knew they were up to the task.

“They made me laugh the entire time. They’re both brilliant hams,” Shakman enthused. “And I think the other thing that’s important about it, though, is that we always needed to ground it. We always needed to make sure that it wasn’t just an exercise in style, or that it felt like parody. And they can do that — they can turn on a dime when they need to. They’re just as good at drama as they are at comedy. And they can do both at the same time, basically.”

Fans can experience the magnitude of Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s comedic and dramatic talents by streaming the first two episodes of WandaVision on Disney+ now.
