The Multiverse of Madness concludes with a tease from Elizabeth Olsen about Scarlet Witch’s potential role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Doctor Strange. Wanda Maximoff’s role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown steadily since she joined in Phase 2. Infinity Saga’s conclusion, she appeared in WandaVision on Disney+, and now she’s in Doctor Strange 2 alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange. The latter is Scarlet Witch’s seventh appearance in the MCU, including post-credits scenes.
America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a teenager with multiverse-traveling powers, is the focus of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness plot. She wants to use Chavez’s powers to travel the multiverse and be reconnected with Billy and Tommy following the occurrences of WandaVision, where the Scarlet Witch ends up losing her children and acquires the Darkhold. Wanda Maximoff is the star of this multiverse sequel, but her future in the MCU is less certain.
Since Doctor Strange 2 has been released worldwide, the cast and crew have begun to spill the beans on some of the film’s more juicy details. In an interview with Extra, Elizabeth Olsen hinted at Scarlet Witch’s future in the MCU. On stage at the New York premiere of the film, she spoke about Wanda Maximoff’s next steps. There are a number of possibilities for Scarlet Witch’s story in the future, but Olsen doesn’t go into specifics about them. Elizabeth Olsen, on the other hand, prefers to listen to what her fans have to say about the future of her story.
The ending of this film is open to a variety of outcomes. For the most part, I’d like to know what the people who know her best want to see from her.
As a result of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ending, there are a lot of questions about Scarlet Witch’s MCU future. Wanda realizes the error of her ways during the climactic final battle between Doctor Strange, Wong, and America Chavez. On Wundagore Mountain, she decides to demolish the temple of Chthon by herself. Doctor Strange 2 does not show Wanda escaping from the crumbling building, with Strange even suggesting that she did not survive. However, Marvel has some leeway in bringing her back because the movie doesn’t explicitly show her death.
For the future of the Scarlet Witch in the MCU, her actions in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will cement her as a villain or antihero. This could indicate that Scarlet Witch has a long journey of redemption ahead of her, but she could also succumb to the temptations of Darkhold’s villainy and corruption. In the past, Elizabeth Olsen has said she would like to see Scarlet Witch in a House of M-style story, so that could be a possibility right now. The multiverse possibilities make it highly unlikely that audiences will ever see Wanda again, even if Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the last time we see her.
