There is a future for the Scarlet Witch within the franchise.
Although WandaVision to date is described as a miniseries, it would not be strange if it finally changed category when it was awarded a hypothetical second season (it happened before, for example, with the HBO drama Big Little Lies ). Such a possibility has prevented the doubts about whether the story of Wanda Maximoff will be followed in the television field, since in addition the Scarlet Witch – impeccably incarnated by Elizabeth Olsen – is currently one of the most popular characters in the world. MCU. So what can Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige say about the future of WandaVision ?
According to Deadline , Kevin Feige was directly faced with the question of whether he “envisions a continuation of WandaVision or an evolution in the story in different capacities” during a recent virtual chat. Although he did not speak properly of a second season, the executive made it clear that Wanda’s narrative arc – endowed with innumerable nuances in the miniseries – will continue to expand in various ways in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
” Yes to an evolution of history “, were the precise words of Feige. ” Probably and inevitably, in many different capacities .”
For now, it is not news that Elizabeth Olsen’s next intervention, in the role of Wanda, will be in the upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness . Although this consists of a sequel within the saga of the Supreme Sorcerer, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the protagonist, this does not mean that the Scarlet Witch is relegated to the background. In the words of Kevin Feige, “that is the first place where that [Wanda’s] story will continue , ” so it cannot be ruled out that she has great narrative weight, but also “there will be other places” to continue developing the character.
When you say “other places”, are you thinking of a second season of WandaVision , or a completely different show, or even a solo movie? There is no official answer, but the possibilities are enormous and none is ruled out. In and out of the MCU, the path continues to open to Elizabeth Olsen and she certainly still has a lot to contribute to this multi-million dollar franchise.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness , directed by Sam Raimi, is scheduled to hit theaters on March 25, 2022.
