Doctor Strange 2 Theory Explains How [SPOILER] Escapes Death

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has arrived in theaters and along with it, we have a plethora of questions in our heads. Sam Raimi promised he would challenge the boundaries of the MCU with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And he has delivered on that promise. The movie treads a fine line between the horror and the superhero genre. The ending of the movie concludes a major character arc. But is it really the end? We believe there’s another story Doctor Strange 2 may be hiding from you. This Doctor Strange 2 theory claims this major character is coming back from the dead.

Doctor Strange 2 Makes Scarlet Witch A Supervillain

In the very first moments of the movie, we realize there is something terribly wrong with Wanda Maximoff. She tries hard to look like her goody two shoes self. But her overconfidence gives her away. Doctor Strange goes to Wanda looking for help to understand witchcraft – a specific form of magic whoever is chasing America Chavez is using. Little does he know that it is Wanda Maximoff herself who is after America Chavez.

Wanda has lost way too much to care about the sanctity of her moral alignment now. She just wants to be with her children. If it means using America Chavez’s powers to jump to a universe and kill her multiversal counterpart so that she could replace her as their new mom, then so be it. And she will not stop at anything until she gets what she wants. The Darkhold has corrupted her beyond measure and wanda is clinging onto whatever justification she could find to explain her unethical actions. From laying waste to the Illuminati to dream-walking and single-handedly destroying Kamar-Taj, she leaves no stone unturned.

When all is said and done, Doctor Strange and America Chavez realize that there is no way they can defeat Wanda. She’s just too strong. Wanda destroys the Book of Vishanti, the only weapon Strange had to defeat the Scarlet Witch. So Chavez comes up with a plan. She uses her powers to open up a portal to Earth-838. This is the same Earth the Illuminati and the alternate Wanda whose mind Scarlet Witch took control of hail from.

The Scarlet Witch realizes what kind of a monster she has become after her own sons are scared of her. She decides to step down and bring down Mount Wundagore, the seat of the Darkhold’s lost arts, with her. Wanda Maximoff of Earth-616 is dead.

But is the Scarlet Witch gone for good?

Theory: Earth-838 Wanda Uses The Book Of Vishanti To Become The New Scarlet Witch

In one scene, we see Doctor Strange, America Chavez, and Earth-838 Christine Palmer travel to the ‘Gap Junction’. The realm known as the space between universes is the seat of the Book of Vishanti. After the Scarlet Witch captures America Chavez, she leaves Earth-838 wanda behind. Earth-838 Wanda travels back from the gap junction and into her own universe via the waypoint and gets back to her children.

Wanda of Earth-616 may be gone but wanda of Earth-838 knows about the Multiverse. And even though she has no Darkhold in her possession like Earth-616 Wanda, she has something better – the Book of Vishanti. Now you must be thinking, the Book of Vishanti was destroyed in the fight. How will she get her hands on them?

The answer is already in the movie. Like the Darkhold was a copy of the rock carvings of Mount Wundagore, the Book of Vishanti could might as well be a copy. The actual source may be in some hidden location in earth-838 and now it is this universe’s Wanda’s job to find it and learn from it.

Free of the corrupting influence of the Darkhold, the Book of Vishanti could be the key to bring back Wanda Maximoff back into the Avengers’ fold. That’s a pretty plausible way for the return of the Scarlet Witch into the MCU.
