Michael Waldron, the screenwriter of the highly successful Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, answers readers’ worries regarding the issue of whether Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch is permanently dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Marvel protagonist, Wanda, welcomed her villainous role as the Scarlet Witch after experiencing her ultimate tragedy at the conclusion of Disney+’s WandaVision, which Sam Raimi helmed. In the latest installment of Doctor Strange, she faces off against Stevan as she causes chaos throughout dimensions in search of her boys Billy and Tommy.
What happens to Maximoff in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness has been discussed. The picture concludes with the protagonist feeling regret for her deeds, despite having committed a number of atrocities, such as the brutal murder of the Illuminati of Earth-838. She decides to kill herself in order to undo the destruction she has created. The Scarlet Witch’s future is unknown, since Doctor Strange did so deliberately in the Multiverse of Madness, although it is generally accepted that she is, at least momentarily, dead.
In the latest discussion, Empire Magazine questioned Waldron whether or not Wanda is really dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Writer of “Loki” as well as “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” Scott Snyder is reasonably cagey, not wanting to spill the beans on Marvel’s long-term intentions. Take a peek at what he said.
“She’s removing herself from the board… For now? Forever? We’ll see. I’d like to see her again…”
Death hoaxes are nothing unusual in the MCU. In reality, following several appearances by Loki and sometimes even Phil Coulson, it has become one of the most ridiculed aspects of the Infinity Saga. If Vision couldn’t resurrect from his grave in Avengers: Infinity War, he at least did so in WandaVision.
This means that Scarlet Witch may return to the MCU at some point. The narrative of Wanda, who has been called the “crown gem” of the Multiverse Saga, simply cannot conclude now. The time and manner of her possible return are the only issues at hand. Given the recent slew of announced Marvel Studios productions, she might make a return appearance in Agatha: Coven of Chaos or possibly Loki Season 2.
It’s comforting to know that if not today or tomorrow she will ultimately find her old place, but it wouldn’t be smart to put her on the back burner following Doctor Strange’s adventure in the Multiverse of Madness.
With Waldron’s statements suggesting it might be some time before the heroine makes another appearance, and with the protagonist’s reputation at an all-time high, Marvel Studios should be using her in future ventures, in the same manner, they featured Iron Man in the Infinity Saga. It’s going to be fascinating to watch where Marvel takes the Scarlet Witch in the long term, even if the complete plan is still unclear at this point.
