Since her introduction in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, has evolved from a pseudo-antagonist to a central figure in the MCU. Her powers grew to the point where she almost single-handedly defeated Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, and she was finally given her own project, WandaVision.

Scarlet Witch is presumed dead after sacrificing herself to destroy Mount Wundagore, the hallowed mountain where the Darkhold was created. However, her death may not be so straightforward. The lack of a visible dead body and a mysterious burst of red energy as the mountain collapsed raises questions about her fate.

Many MCU fans believe that Scarlet Witch deserves a better arc than what was presented in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Elizabeth Olsen herself has expressed a desire for her character’s redemption, stating that there are many possibilities for her future in the MCU.
