Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch has had quite a journey in the MCU. From being a mere supporting character in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, to having her own show, WandaVision; to being the primary antagonist in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, she has been one of the MCU’s most impressive characters. After she seemingly died in the Doctor Strange sequel, Elizabeth Olsen and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have spoken up about her fate.
Kevin Feige On The Scarlet Witch’s MCU Future
The mastermind behind the MCU, Kevin Feige, answered a question regarding Wanda’s death in an interview by Variety with this:
As we saw in Multiverse Of Madness, Wanda destroyed the Darkhold in every universe, as well as the Darkhold castle in Earth-616. While it was implied that Wanda herself perished in the collapse of the castle, we never explicitly saw her under the rubble, which left her story open-ended for us geeks.
Elizabeth Olsen believes The Scarlet Witch is alive
While giving an interview for Variety’s Power of Women, Elizabeth Olsen talked about Wanda’s next step in the MCU. She was expecting Wanda to head towards “some sort of redemption”, confirming that Wanda is still alive in the MCU.
She shared how she never felt the limitations when she played the same character for several years, by approaching storytelling in different ways.
