Having fully embraced her destiny as the Scarlet Witch in the finale of the Disney+ series WandaVision, Wanda Maximoff is set to make her MCU return next year alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in the Sam Raimi-directed Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
With filming on the sequel having recently wrapped, actress Elizabeth Olsen has been chatting to Explica about continuing Wanda’s story in the upcoming film, stating that:
“I have spent the last 7 years playing this character and she has changed and grown with me. But it wasn’t until WandaVision, and now Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, that I felt a sense of ownership and creative license with her… Every Marvel movie is unique and this one is sure to surprise fans. I can’t wait to see your reaction, especially when it comes to the WandaVision part.”
With so much secrecy surrounding Multiverse of Madness, there’s been no indication as to how Wanda will factor into the story, or how big of a role she’ll play in proceedings. However, she’ll presumably be venturing into the multiverse for her twin sons Billy and Tommy, with Olsen teasing to THR’s Awards Chatter podcast that: “She has a few fun powers. You know, telekinesis, she can travel between universes…”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is being directed by Sam Raimi and stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Mordo) and Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) as well as Xochitl Gomez (The Baby-Sitters Club) as America Chavez.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set for release on March 25th 2022.
