Elizabeth Olsen might've come into the entertainment industry known as Mary-Kate and Ashley's younger sister, but she has made a name for herself since then. I mean, you could really say she's one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses now, and all that she has accomplished is well deserved.

Elizabeth has appeared in many movies and TV shows over her acting career, but the role that really put her on the map was her role as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe media franchise. She played Wanda in the Marvel movies Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. She also played Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Additionally, she reprised these same roles in the Disney+ miniseries WandaVision and the second season of the animated anthology series What If...?.

But although her role as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch in the Marvel movies gained her worldwide recognition, Elizabeth has appeared in several other movies that were successful. In fact, Netflix just recently released one of her highest-grossing movies on its platform and it's Godzilla.

Godzilla is a reboot of Toho Co., Ltd.'s Godzilla franchise. It's an action-adventure film that was directed by Gareth Edwards from a screenplay written by Max Borenstein. Edwards is best known for directing the massively successful epic space opera film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He also co-wrote the script and directed the sci-fi film The Creator. On the other hand, Borenstein is known for co-writing the screenplay for the monster film Kong: Skull Island.

When Godzilla was released in theaters in May 2014, people came in droves to see the film. Overall, critics and viewers alike enjoyed the movie with many people applauding the visual effects, music, cinematography, etc. It managed to make $529 million at the box office against a budget of $160 million. Due to this major success, more films in the MonsterVerse franchise were later released. But unfortunately, Godzilla is the only movie in the franchise that Elizabeth appears in.

Here's what Godzilla is about via Rotten Tomatoes:

"Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), a Navy bomb expert, has just reunited with his family in San Francisco when he is forced to go to Japan to help his estranged father, Joe (Bryan Cranston). Soon, both men are swept up in an escalating crisis when Godzilla, King of the Monsters, arises from the sea to combat malevolent adversaries that threaten the survival of humanity. The creatures leave colossal destruction in their wake, as they make their way toward their final battleground: San Francisco."

Aaron Taylor-Johnson plays the protagonist of the monster film, Ford Brody, while Elizabeth portrays Elle Brody, Ford's wife and a nurse at San Francisco General Hospital. Also in the cast are Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, and many others.
